Long hours under ground. Hours upon hours of demanding use of loaders, haulers, drills and compressors. This is where Volvo Penta mining engines can make a difference. Based on our more than 100 years of experience in engineering, our heavy-duty range will help mining operators maximise uptime and make sure business is always running at full capacity.
Volvo Penta’s engines for mining applications are all built on the same engine platform. This translates into familiarity with installation layout and service points, no matter the engine range, and the operation will benefit from parts and accessories available from the same source. Thanks to the robust construction and easy serviceability with service intervals of up to 1,000 hours, the fuel-efficient engines will help operations running under even the harshest demands.
Improving conditions underground requires advanced engine technology, as well as optimised ventilation rates. But proper ventilation of an underground mine is energy-consuming – and expensive. At the industry’s forefront for low emissions, Volvo Penta engines can help operators decrease ventilation rates and improve overall air quality in the mine, leading to cleaner air – and lowered costs.
External forces, vibration and dusty working conditions puts a strain on the coolers, filters and harnesses used in off-road equipment. Volvo Penta’s optional heavy-duty package – with a cooling system, wiring harness and air filter specifically designed to withstand harsh, strenuous and dusty conditions – will help you reduce unplanned stops and increase engine uptime even further.
Experience how a Volvo Penta D16 700hp engine powers the latest tech in mining, some 3,000 meters underground in Tampere, Finland, helping make the operation safer, smarter and more efficient. You can also view more examples of Volvo Penta engines powering breath taking off-road applications around the globe by following our Mighty Jobs series.
