MINExpo, the world’s largest mining event, will be back in person on September 13th-15th, 2021 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. More than 1,100 exhibitors from 30 countries around the globe will come together in Nevada to showcase the latest advancements in mining. The show will showcase the latest cutting-edge equipment, innovations, services, and technologies to take your operations to a new level and fuel long-term growth.
This year’s three-day event will cover every facet of the mining industry – exploration, mine development, open pit and underground mining, processing, safety, environmental improvement and more. Volvo Penta will be exhibiting alongside sister company Volvo Construction Equipment in booth 8127. On display will be the Volvo Penta D8 Tier 4 Final industrial diesel engine – a perfect fit for the heavy demands of mining operations.
Tier 4 Final D8 Engine for Mining Applications
Underground mining working conditions are among the toughest, which is why our engines are designed to maximize uptime, lower ventilation rates, and ensure that business is always running at full capacity. The D8 engine is a powerful, reliable, and fuel-efficient off-road diesel engine with low cost of ownership and simple installation.
Not only does Volvo Penta supply robust and reliable engines that are characterized by premium product quality, our company support projects all the way throughout the lifetime of the machines. From design to installation, and offering superior service support, Volvo Penta is with our customers all the way. They are backed by our extensive dealer network that is equipped with high quality industrial parts, diagnostic systems, certified technicians and more.

What to do in Las Vegas
One of the best ways to enjoy Las Vegas’ iconic nightlife scene is by cruising or walking down the Strip. Packed with endless neon lights, busy casinos and 24/7 buffets, the city’s most famous nightlife experiences are central to this active stretch of Las Vegas. You’ll even see tributes to a few wonders of the world with the half-sized Eiffel Tower Experience, and the Pyramid and Sphinx at the Luxor Hotel.
Gondola Rides at the Venetian
To get a taste of Venice without having to cross the Atlantic Ocean, the Venetian Hotel and Casino is open 24/7 to offer an Italian experience right in Las Vegas. Gourmet Italian eats, performances, pool cabanas and traditional gondola tours are offered at this fun destination.
The Hoover Dam
To escape the city’s excitement for a few hours, the Hoover Dam is a memorable site to visit. Holding Lake Mead – the United States’ largest water reservoir by volume – the Hoover Dam stretches 30 miles from the Colorado River to the Black Canyon. The massive concrete structure is surrounded by miles of rocky landscaping and open blue skies, which gives you the opportunity to enjoy less crowded attractions during your visit to Las Vegas’. Although the Visitor Center Tours and Exhibits remain closed at this time, you can still walk through all outdoor areas of the site.
