Volvo Trucks launches autonomous transport solution at Norwegian mine

Volvo Trucks is supplying its first commercial autonomous transport solution for real day-to-day operation to Norwegian mining company Brønnøy Kalk.

Six autonomous Volvo FH trucks will transport limestone over a five-kilometre stretch from an open pit mine to a nearby port. The solution is said to offer companies working in many industries such as aggregates production and mining greater flexibility and efficiency, as well as increased productivity.

Speaking about Volvo Trucks’ multi industry-focused development of commercial autonomous transport solutions, Sasko Cuklev, director Autonomous Solutions, Volvo Trucks, said: “Transportation is really the lifeblood, the pulse of societies, it drives prosperity for business and the people. In the near future, we will start to see self-driving trucks from Volvo on our roads becoming a part of our society.”

 

Ann-Sofi Karlsson, director Human Factors for Automation, Volvo Trucks, added: “Automation comes in many forms and applications, from advanced driver support systems to self-driving trucks. We are putting huge effort into solutions that will make life easier for drivers and operators – making the job more attractive and safer.”
