In the heart of the earth

Deep down in South African mines underground loaders powered by Volvo Penta engines work 24/7.


They are low-slung loaders with high capacity and raw muscle. For an engine, there are few more extreme working conditions than in mining operations, with the constant exposure to dust and vibrations.

Because a mine is a confined space, emissions have to be minimized.

Volvo Penta engines – such as this TAD1340VE – meet the highest standards.
