The President of the Republic of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov took part in the transfer of 15 KAMAZ trucks to the “Russian Post”: 10 KAMAZ-5325, 3 KAMAZ-5490 and 2 newest KAMAZ-54901 prime movers.
In accordance with the agreement the postal service will get more than 500 trucks over the 2020-2022.
“I’m sure the trucks will improve service quality and help reduce the time of correspondence delivery,” – the President of Tatarstan said.
A large batch of KAMAZ trucks was delivered to the “Limakmarashavtodorogi” Turkish company to participate in the construction of a tunnel in Bashkiria.
Among the delivered 24 units of vehicles – KAMAZ-65222 all-wheel drive dump trucks, which will be involved in the “Eastern exit” project. We mean a transport corridor between the federal highways M5 and M7 through Ufa, which includes a highway, a tunnel, a bridge, and interchanges. Eastern exit is the most expensive infrastructure project in the capital of Bashkortostan over the past decades, the cost of which is estimated at 527.4 million USD.
The KAMAZ-65222 off-road truck is adapted for operation in rough terrain where the use of road equipment is difficult. Recently, many modifications have been made to the design of the dump truck, thanks to which this wheeled all-terrain vehicle has become widespread and in demand not only in Russia but also abroad. The vehicle is used in construction, agriculture, forestry, mining and road construction. Heavy dump truck KAMAZ-65222 is designed for transportation of bulk and piece goods with their subsequent unloading by lifting the body.
The advantages of the all-terrain dump truck include high cross-country ability, carrying capacity, and reliability. Even a fully laden truck is capable of driving off-road. Differentials and bollards provide uniform force transfer to the ground. The dump truck with small dimensions and low fuel consumption is capable of transporting up to 20 tons of various cargo to hard-to-reach areas. The components and assemblies of the truck are made with a safety margin. They can withstand high loads, extreme cold and heat. Electronics controls all indicators of components and mechanisms of the truck. The sensors provide timely signals to the driver about equipment malfunctions. Diagnostics is simplified, repair time is reduced.
On the eve of the corporate holiday, which will begin on Monday, August 17, at KAMAZ, the company’s CEO Sergey Kogogin addressed the KAMAZ workers:
– Dear residents of KAMAZ!
Time is passing, and we have already crossed the middle of 2020, an extraordinary, difficult year that has become a real test for all of us. We have passed the most important stage of countering Coronavirus infection and were able to contain its spread in the KAMAZ divisions. I have every reason to thank you for working under difficult conditions. Thanks to our well-coordinated work, a high level of awareness and discipline in matters of anti-epidemic measures taken in the company, thanks to state support, we were able to exceed the indicators of the business plan, maintain and increase market share. In seven months, 18.3 thousand KAMAZ trucks were sold in Russia and abroad, which is nine percent higher than the same period last year!
One of the important events of this period was the start of sales of the KAMAZ-54901 mainline tractor – the first model of the K5 generation of trucks. This is something that we have been purposefully working towards over the past few years. We have expanded our product line with new models of self-driving cars, dump trucks, and other vehicles. We have made important steps in the development of new modifications of gas engine technology, producing the first cars powered by liquefied natural gas with two cryogenic tanks. We have strengthened our position in the electric transport market. Thank you for your ability to achieve goals even in unusual conditions! Each of you contributes to our success.
Dear colleagues! Starting next week, the main part of our team will start their corporate vacation. I thank you for your productive work and wish you a great holiday. Spend this time usefully, store up energy to start performing the next tasks with new strength. I am sure that in the new production period, we will make every effort to make the rest of the year no less successful for KAMAZ than the path of the road that has already been passed in 2020.
At the same time, it is worth recalling that the new Coronavirus infection has not yet receded, and the pandemic has not yet become part of history. This is not the time to give up. On vacation days, it is still important to show responsibility. You need to take all measures to maintain excellent health and start working healthy after your vacation. Be healthy! Take care of yourself and your loved ones!
