BHP Group Ltd., Caterpillar Inc. and Finning International Inc. have agreed to replace BHP's entire haul truck fleet at the Escondida copper mine in Chile.

The companies said Tuesday that the first of the new trucks, which will be Caterpillar 798 AC electric trucks, are expected to arrive at the mine in the second half of 2023. Delivery of the remaining trucks will extend over the next 10 years.

The companies said that the fleet, currently comprised of over 160 haul trucks, is one of the largest fleets in the global industry.

The copper mine is located in the Antofagasta region in northern Chile, the companies said.

Finning will provide technical support for the fleet through its integrated knowledge center located in the region.
