The next step of the process innovation of CDPS Bassol is the purchasing of the custom vehicles for transportation of salt over the lake surface from the harvester to the receiving hopper of the plant. The vehicle is the purpose-made and has only one analogue throughout the world. Two trucks with trailers with the total vehicle capacity 450 tons will substitute locomotive and wagons, which are currently used for salt transportation. The main advantage of this vehicle is, that equipment is mobile and do not require railroad bed. Purchasing of this machine is the significant contribution to the development of the production technology at lake Baskunchak.
Trucks have been delivered to the warehouse of CDPS Bassol. Assembly is planned to be started at the beginning of summer. After assembly is over, Russalt will carry out the commissioning of the equipment.
