ESCO Corporation says it has delivered its first UltraHaul truck body to Cloud Peak Energy, a Powder River Basin coal mining company in Wyoming, marking ESCO’s first mining truck body delivered in North America.
Engineers at ESCO, working closely with Cloud Peak Energy, enhanced a design being sold in Latin America and Asia Pacific, creating a lighter body that utilizes a unique curved tail to increase the payload to 250 tons. Fabricators at ESCO’s supply and service site in Wright, Wyo. built the first-of-its-kind truck bod.
“Cloud Peak Energy is a valued and innovative partner for ESCO,” said Jeff Kershaw, President of ESCO’s Mining Division. “Their new ESCO UltraHaul truck body, which meets their safety and productivity demands, is a direct result of both companies’ willingness to collaborate.”
