At the exhibition “Coal/Mining2002”the PrJSC PCF “Amplituda” represented the electric locomotive АRP8Т worked out in association with Research and Design Institute of coal automation and SKV “Elektromashyna”. The electric locomotive is equipped with transistor no-contact control system and has significant advantages compared to the existing models. At that moment the electric locomotive had passed all bench and trial tests under conditions of Torez mine “Progress” and everything was ready for its production. However, having studied experience of other companies, when high performance mining equipment in mine conditions did not provide required performance and needed serious updating it was decided to continue testing in different conditions.
