The fleet of T 236 trucks, being manufactured in France, will be delivered to, and commissioned for, Adamus Resource’s Nzema Gold Mine – the first mine acquired by Nguvu Mining – from mid-2023. Liebherr-Ghana will be fully supporting the assembly, commission, and operation of the 13 vehicles, providing onsite technicians, training, and vendor held stock as well as remanufacturing services and parts at the Tarkwa remanufacturing facility.

“Liebherr-Ghana has a fantastic reputation for support services in the local market. The Ghanaian team offers a range of services to customers including training for technicians, maintenance and repair contracts, and on-the-ground assistance. Liebherr-Ghana prides itself on being a trustworthy and transparent partner for our customers that always delivers on its commitments,” said Loïc Siegel, Regional Sales Manager for Liebherr-Mining Equipment Colmar SAS.

Angela List, CEO of Nguvu Mining, seconded these comments. “Liebherr’s open and transparent communications and its ongoing strong commitment towards a well-established support network, with a large stock of spare parts in Ghana, were key deciding factors [for Nguvu Mining to work with Liebherr once again].”

Nzema Gold Mine – located among the gold deposits of the Birimian Supergroup – is currently working towards an annual target of 120,000 troy ounces of gold. The 13 T 236 trucks will assist Nguvu Mining in achieving this target by hauling overburden and oxide ore. These 100-tonne class trucks, with their high take-off torque and increased traction on haul roads above a 12% gradient, will prove to be a valuable partner to Nguvu Mining as the company works towards its goals.

“Nguvu is excited to renew its business with Liebherr,” continued List. “Liebherr is providing us with a strong addition to our expansive mobile equipment fleet, with state-of-the-art trucks at very attractive terms.”

The T 236 fleet will be supported by Liebherr Mining, with an OEM-certified product support representative assigned to site for 12 months.
