Russian government permission for TATRA mining truck versions

6 April, 2012

The permission issued by Russian Federal Agency focusing on environmental protection and technological safety means granting official rights to use TATRA mining tippers in open pits such as coal, iron and non-iron quarries.

This permission, granted for TATRA mining truck versions in February 2012, complies with all mining safety requirements and regulations.

TATRA vehicles have been used as quarry trucks by CIS and Russian mining companies since the 1950s. TATRA mining tippers are currently widely used all over Russia, CIS and Eastern European countries.

After last year's success in the International Truck of the Year 2012 contest, a TATRA PHOENIX log truck version has been awarded an "Extraordinary Award of the CEO and Jury of Grand Prix Silva Regina" at the SILVA REGINA 2012 exhibit.
