XL electrification for XL mines

Introducing BluVeinXL, the dynamic charging solution for heavy-duty mining fleets up to 250t used in open-pit mining.

Industry-driven and leveraging much of the BluVein1 technology, BluVeinXL is capable of dynamically feeding power to mixed-OEM fleets to enable the onboarding of smaller battery packs, faster vehicle haulage speeds up ramp, grid load balancing, and maximum fleet availability.


Ease of Ownership


Any mine, any vehicle


Game-changing patented and proven safe slotted rail


Quick, modular install


No overhead vehicle integration


Deployment and relocation


Elimination of overhead wires and infrastructure

Scalable to ultra-class haulage

Open-pit demands are mixed OEM that vary in size.

To truly enable and sustain diverse electric haulage fleets, BluVeinXL is designed to be adaptable, agnostic, and scalable.

Reduced footprint

  • Narrow haul ramp width
  • Lower strip ratio
  • Smaller mine footprint
  • Less total energy consumed
  • Net-zero enabler

Charge + Drive

  • Increased production: fleets not requiring frequent battery charging or swapping
  • Reduced haulage fleet TCO: reduced onboard energy, lighter trucks, more payload, faster and steeper haulage

Safe power delivery

  • Safe Ingress Protection (IP) Rated
  • Connect and disconnect at any location of the haulage route
  • Plug-and-play into standardised existing mining supply systems

Award-winning technology

BluVeinXL is continuing development with the Charge On Innovation Challenge Partners towards a pilot demonstration at a yet-to-be-announced location and date.

BluVeinXL project consortium also coming soon.
