Great Scott, Mining Vehicle Goes Electric

It's dubbed the TRITEV, and its mission is to help decarbonise the mining industry.

The 20 tonne loader is believed to be the first piece of heavy mining equipment in the world to have been retrofitted with battery technology.

The vehicle, which will be used in underground hard rock mining, was a collaboration between Hunter-based companies 3ME Technology and Batt Mobile Equipment.
