Right now, BELAZ have only one dump truck with such payload capacity. It is expecting another order for 12 units if the test drive results are positive and satisfied. Though there are much challenges lying ahead, BELAZ has strong confidence in it. Weichai said there is a ready supply of powerful engines to BELAZ, with a 45t, 90t, 130t and 240t capacity payload.

The cooperation between Weichai and BELAZ will help boost BELAZ's presence and competitiveness in the Asian market.“Belarus is a country we have wanted to cooperate with for a long time…and now we have a great background for cooperation. We are very glad that we have such an opportunity to produce engines for OJSC BELAZ. This is definitely a new level. We’ve manufactured the engine for the 90 t dump truck that in addition to the basic functions saves fuel as well. We hope that there will appear even more possibilities for supplies of the Belarussian machinery to China,”said Yang Gensheng, a representative from Weichai Group.
