Engines for Underground Mining Machinery

The harsher the environment, the stronger we are.

Underground Mining Equipment

Our engines for drilling equipment and mining vehicles such as wheel loaders and dump trucks are specially optimized to reduce emissions for underground use. Modern injection methods and combustion processes provide for first-rate exhaust values that do not unnecessarily overburden ventilation systems. MTU diesel engines are designed for clean underground operation, without sacrificing performance. 

Series 900 and Series 60 engines conform to the strict US underground 30 CFR Part 7 regulations amongst others, thanks to common-rail injection systems, as well as exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and SCR exhaust gas after treatment. Our engines for underground vehicles are specially designed for tough, 24/7 use and develop enormous amounts of torque from low engine speeds – regardless of temperature, dust or moisture.

Low lifecycle costs

Through long maintenance intervals and low fuel consumption of underground mining machines.

Clean underground mining operations

Optimal combustion and advanced exhaust gas aftertreatment.

Highest performance

Designed for continuous use in extreme conditions.

Maximum availability

Proven engine concept ensures minimal downtime.

Engines for Underground Vehicles

MTU diesel engines are designed for clean underground operation, without sacrificing performance. Series 900 and Series 60 engines conform to the strict US underground 30 CFR Part 7 regulations amongst others, thanks to common-rail injection systems, as well as exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and SCR exhaust gas after treatment. Our engines for underground vehicles are specially designed for tough, 24/7 use and develop enormous amounts of torque from low engine speeds – regardless of temperature, dust or moisture.

Intelligent Engine Management

A second-generation common rail injection system and an intelligent engine management guarantee the efficient use of fuel by our engines. Further benefits come from the maintenance-friendly design of all MTU diesel engines for low maintenance operation with long service intervals. They minimize downtime and ensure that your underground mining machines are back to work again in record time.
