News | 12/07/2022 Monnis and Liebherr finalised substantial supply contract at Bauma 2022

During the 2022 Bauma trade fair, Monnis – a large technology and equipment supplier within the Mongolian mining industry – and Liebherr confirmed a significant supply deal. This deal will see Liebherr deliver 17 units of dozers and excavators to Monnis’ long-term customer Erdenes Tavan Tolgoi throughout 2023 and 2024.

Monnis International (Monnis) was founded after signing a distributorship agreement with Nissan Motors Co. in 1998. Although Monnis began life as an automotive dealer, the company quickly diversified to cover a wide range of industries – including the mining sector – and in 2002 the company became an official Liebherr dealer. Today, Monnis is one of the largest companies in Mongolia.

This most recent supply contract is for a total of 17 Liebherr mining machines, comprised of eight excavators – three R 9250s, two R 9400s, and three R 9600s – and nine PR 776 dozers. These machines are to be delivered to the Tavan Tolgoi coal mine, which is operated by one of Monnis’ longstanding customers Erdenes Tavan Tolgoi (ETT), a state-owned mining company in Mongolia.

To ensure the fast and reliable delivery of after-sales services for Liebherr machinery, Monnis opened its Gobi branch in 2011, located approximately four kilometres from the Tavan Tolgoi coal mine. With the opening of this branch, those working with Liebherr equipment have access to spare parts, highly trained technicians, and a range of Liebherr mining products to meet the needs of any scenario that may arise on site.

The new Liebherr excavators and dozers will support the existing Liebherr machinery on site, which includes two R 9200s and one R 9350.
