Liebherr Mining is gearing up to showcase its new mining solutions portfolio at the world's largest mining trade show, MINExpo International 2021.

At MINExpo 2021, Liebherr Mining will display the R 9150 Generation 7 (G7) 130t / 143 ton excavator, the next generation of excavator cab from the recently announced R 9600 G8, the PR 776 70t / 77 ton mining dozer with LiReCon teleoperation system, the newly introduced T 274 305t / 336 tons haul truck along with a display from Liebherr Components, and the LRT 1090-2.1 90t / 100 ton rough-terrain crane from Liebherr Mobile Cranes. 

Attendees will be able to interact with new technologies through a VR booth, and discover Liebherr's technology at the daily masterclasses held with Liebherr experts.

Liebherr will introduce three new excavators at MINExpo: the R 9150 Generation 7, the R 9200 Generation 7, and the brand-new R 9600 Generation 8. These three machines establish the new naming strategy based on technology levels for Liebherr machines. This approach aims to achieve a common and long-term logic within the earthmoving and mining product ranges in a clear manner.

All three excavators are now equipped with the latest innovations including Liebherr Power Efficiency, Assistance Systems, and Bucket Filling Assistant.

LPE (Liebherr Power Efficiency) is a specific engine and hydraulic management system which reduces fuel consumption by up to 20 percent. Assistance Systems are advanced on-board applications designed to support the operator to become more efficient through analytics and actionable insights.

Visitors can also discover the Assistance Systems through an immersive experience in the VR (virtual reality) area. BFA (Bucket Filling Assistant) is the first automation product of the Liebherr hydraulic excavator portfolio, and allows the operator to realise the bucket filling process automatically.

The T 274 mining truck features low fuel consumption and a low cost per tonne.

Liebherr has recently extended its product offering with the T 274, a 305t / 336 tons haul truck. This new truck bridges the gap between the T 284 and T 264

Designed and adapted from years of experience in mining truck development, the T 274 provides fast cycle times, higher production rates, low fuel consumption, and a low cost per tonne. A wide range of options are available including the Liebherr Trolley Assist System and Liebherr Autonomy Kit.

The PR 776 dozer will feature the new LiReCon Liebherr teleoperation system.

Liebherr will also showcase its flagship mining dozer, the PR 776 Litronic. The machine will be on display together with the new LiReCon Liebherr teleoperation system. LiReCon (Liebherr Remote Control) provides additional comfort and safety for operators in tough mining applications.

The D9816 will be on display at the booth and is also at the heart of the exhibited T 274 haul truck.

Liebherr components and D98 diesel engine series

Liebherr components for mining applications will also be featured at MINExpo. Among the components is the D98 diesel engine series, which is available for both Liebherr and other mining equipment manufacturers. 

The V-16 engine of the D98 family, the D9816, marks the beginning of the integration of the D98 series into Liebherr machines.

The LRT 1090-2.1 90t / 100 tons rough terrain crane is designed to deliver high levels of safety. It is fitted as standard with an outrigger monitor which automatically detects the support status and includes the crane control system. 

It is delivered as standard with the VarioBase variable support base which enhances flexibility on site and increases the crane's lifting capacity. The LRT 1090-2.1 features a 47m / 154ft telescopic boom. Its telescoping system consists of a two-stage hydraulic cylinder with a rope extension mechanism. The boom can be extended easily with two telescoping modes, strong or long. The extension mechanism has been designed for high telescoping lifting capacities.

Mining technology product portfolio

Liebherr will present the world premiere of its brand new mining technology product portfolio at MINExpo. This will demonstrate the company's interoperable and scalable approach to their equipment, technology, and service product offerings.

This portfolio consisting of Liebherr's Assistance Systems, Machine Automation, and Digital Service products will provide customers with flexible scope of supply solutions to increase safety and asset operational effectiveness.

Zero-emission program

Liebherr Mining offers a range of solutions to help customers achieve low emissions, including a full range of electric excavators, and soon-to-be full range of trolley-capable mining trucks.

Further to this, Liebherr Mining will expand its current offering to achieve low fossil fuel solutions in 2022, along with fossil fuel free solutions for the majority of applications by 2030.
