Liebherr is set to deliver 17 units of dozers and excavators to Erdenes Tavan Tolgoi in Mongolia as part of a recently signed agreement with Monnis International, a large technology and equipment supplier within the country’s mining industry.
The deliveries to Erdenes Tavan Tolgoi, a long-term customer of Monnis, will take place throughout 2023 and 2024.
Liebherr and Monnis signed the agreement during the Bauma 2022 trade fair in Munich, Germany.
Monnis was founded after signing a distributorship agreement with Nissan Motors Co in 1998, but the company quickly diversified from an automotive dealer to cover a wide range of industries – including the mining sector – and, in 2002, became an official Liebherr dealer.
This most recent supply contract is for a total of 17 Liebherr mining machines, comprised of eight excavators – three R 9250s, two R 9400s, and three R 9600s – and nine PR 776 dozers. These machines are to be delivered to the Tavan Tolgoi coal mine.
To ensure the fast and reliable delivery of after-sales services for Liebherr machinery, Monnis opened its Gobi branch in 2011, located approximately four kilometres from the Tavan Tolgoi coal mine. With the opening of this branch, those working with Liebherr equipment have access to spare parts, highly trained technicians, and a range of Liebherr mining products to meet the needs of any scenario that may arise on site, Liebherr says.
The new Liebherr excavators and dozers will support the existing Liebherr machinery on site, which includes two R 9200s and one R 9350.
