Recommended Posts

KrAZ Trucks Press Release  /  December 27, 2018

On the nights of December 25-26,  KrAZ off-road trucks were called into help to people trapped during snowstorm on road Zolotonosha-Kremenchug near the village of Lipovoye. The call for help came from officials of Poltava region SES.

Snowstorm and high wind paralyzed traffic, causing traffic jams, as a result, many cars and trucks have been hit by snowstorm. About 200 vehicles became trapped in snowdrifts on the border of Cherkassy and Poltava regions, and KrAZ vehicle and workers have been engaged in relief efforts.

It turned out that SES does not have enough vehicles for response, for this reason, vehicles of outside organizations including those of KrAZ Trucks have been used for relief efforts.  Drivers from the KrAZ R&D center operating KrAZ-6322 trucks and KrAZ-Fiona armored vehicles sent for relief efforts assisted in recovery operations on Kiev road as part of rescue team. According to them, the last trip was made to deliver people to warming centres set up in hotels and schools of the nearby villages of Lipovoye and Sviatilovka. KrAZ off road vehicles are being used currently for recovery of vehicles to clear up traffic jams.

It is worth nothing that not only KrAZ vehicles with snow clearing and salt spreading equipment annually take the heat in relief efforts. Special vehicles of rescue services, military units and “KrAZ” company used for recovery have much job to tackle with. And it is no surprise as KrAZ trucks have been designed for use in harsh environmental conditions.  

KrAZ Trucks manufactures a wide range of modern vehicles for various applications. At customer’s request, they are often all-year-round vehicles equipped with easily mountable/removable snow clearing equipment.
