Cummins powered mining equipment in action

In some of the most extreme environments on the planet, mining operations are constantly moving without a break. No matter what, the operation must keep moving every hour of every day. In the mining world, downtime due to any single piece of equipment can result in the loss of tens of thousands of dollars. There are two keys to a successful mine site operation; equipment availability and productivity. To achieve optimal performance in both categories, miners need partners that work just as hard as they do.
In February of 2018, a coal mine in Northwest Colorado purchased a Liebherr R 9400 excavator for use at its mining operation. The coal that is unearthed at this site is delivered directly to an adjoining 885 megawatt, coal-fired power station. Mine sites in extreme environments require dependable engines to power their mining applications, which is why this mine called on Cummins to power their Liebherr R 9400 excavator.
