Terex Equipment has since 1993 supplied rigid mining trucks to PT Kideco’s Pasir coal mine at Batukajang Pasir, East Kalimantan, in the Indonesian part of Borneo. Output from the mine during 2001 is expected to reach 10 Mt (11 million st). And the mine has plans to increase production further to 12 Mt/a (13.2 million stpy) by the end of 2002. Exploration at Pasir during the late 1980s found more than 1 Gt (1.1 million billion st) of coal reserves. Kideco began mine development in 1989 and started commercial production in 1993.
