MTU diesel engines are the standard in mining equipment at many opencast and underground mining operations around the globe.
MTU mining engines have a long history of proving themselves under extreme conditions. Day in and day out, they reliably power mining equipment such as blast hole drilling rigs, excavators and wheel loaders; mining vehicles such as haul trucks and other mining equipment—with diesel-mechanic, diesel-electric or diesel-hydraulic powertrains. MTU engines provide the highest performance, reliability and availability. In addition, long service intervals, maintenance-friendly design and an efficient use of fuel provide for exceptionally low operating costs.
Our diesel engines need to function 24/7 without fault. That is why we constantly test our engines in extreme temperatures and in the dust to guarantee reliable and profitable operation. Advanced combustion technology makes our engines more cost-efficient to operate, cleaner and quieter than most others. These benefits make a difference environmentally and economically.
