The integration of the Liebherr D9816 engine into the new 305 t T 274 mining truck, a trolley version of which was shown at MINExpo 2021, marks an important milestone for Liebherr-Components and Liebherr Mining: the integration of the latest engine series in Liebherr mining equipment. The Liebherr Group’s shared in-house competencies across different product segments further strengthen the company’s vertical integration strategy.
Specifically designed for the mining industry, the D98 series completes the already existing Liebherr engine portfolio for mining equipment and expands it to the upper power range. The series will be offered as an alternative option to the already existing engines.
Liebherr engines have already proven their performance in smaller size excavators and dozers. With the D98, Liebherr offers further advantages also for larger excavators and trucks. In addition, the engine series provides for outstanding low fuel consumption and emission reduction. The engine is also compatible for use with Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) fuel that can significantly reduce C02 emissions. With this, Liebherr is pursuing major assets for its Mining Zero Emission Program. Various units of the series are already in operation in different countries worldwide, showing positive results.
