MTU, the choice of engine for major OEMs, has been introduced into the Mongolian mining industry by Mongolian Star Melchers supported by Tognum Asia, the manufacturer of MTU. The manufacturers explain to our readers how MTU engine can contribute to the successful mining operations in Mongolia.
MTU is well known brand in Europe. However, MTU is new to the Mongolian market. Could you please introduce the brand, its technological advantages and capacity?
Although MTU is new in the Mongolian market, MTU is not new in the Global Mining market. MTU is a choice when it comes to Mining engines for both OEMs & Mining Operators, with renown Mining Equipment Brands like, Liebherr, Hitachi, Le Tournea, Atlas Copco, Sandvik, Belaz etc. The benefits that MTU engines offered includes better fuel consumption, reliability, availability, longer TBO, better power density ratio, etc., which is critical in Mining operations. Today, MTU supplies engines for the whole spectrum of Mining equipment from Articulated Dump trucks to Excavators, Drills and to the largest mining trucks in the world.
MTU engine is renowned for its wide range of applications from generator and mining trucks to industrial locomotives. How do you see the business potential in Mongolian market and in which sector predominantly? Why would Mongolian customers prefer MTU over other brands?
We see Mongolian, with its vast commodities reserves, will be the next frontier for Mining. Because most of the mining in Mongolia is situated in remote areas, we believe having a reliable engine for power generation and mining is important for the successful Mining operation. Mongolian customers would prefer MTU engines in their equipment over other brands for the same benefits mentioned previously.
