ABB has signed a new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Liebherr Mining Equipment to collaborate in bringing solutions to market that will reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with heavy machinery in mining.
The two technology companies will explore the development of state-of-the-art equipment and digital solutions for overall electrification of mine sites, with particular focus on trolley support. Bringing together complementary areas of expertise, ABB and Liebherr will also address the demands of remote industrial applications in their quest for net zero emissions mining machinery.
Under the agreement, the companies will study and evaluate the possibility of future projects, using technologies available to them now and those becoming available in the coming months and years. Working closely together will improve understanding and awareness of which existing solutions they might combine and where new research and development opportunities might be.
