Drilling in Mining

Our mining drilling equipment.

Mining and Drilling Rigs

mtu high-performance diesel engines for blast hole drills or drill rigs work exceptionally hard. They combine robustness with electronic engine management that has been finely aligned for optimal drilling performance at opencast or underground mining sites. This guarantees fast drilling progress and precise drilling results. Drilling machines you use to drill holes into the wall. 

The intelligent control system protects the engine as well as the drilling machine and optimizes the performance during continuous use as well as facilitating diagnostics and maintenance. This makes for an ideal combination of power and that gets through anywhere – even under the toughest of conditions.

Because only the strongest prevail

When drilling blast holes in the hardest rock formations or when performing exploratory drilling, our diesel engines must work faultlessly around the clock under the most extreme environmental conditions. Our well-proven and constantly improved drive systems guarantee reliability and profitability.
