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.

MTU Series 4000. Legendary. Since 1996.
MTU Series 4000 engines were specifically designed to be powerful, universally deployable and yet efficient. Today, it’s carrying that legacy forward for mining operations and other tough applications.
The Series 4000 is our most successful product range. Since its introduction, more than 37,000 of these engines have proven how efficient and reliable they are. In the toughest applications, together they have accumulated about 180,000,000 hours of operation. With planned scheduled service intervals, numerous engines have been able to demonstrate more than 60,000 hours of operation.
