News | 05/21/2024 Eight PR 776 dozers commissioned for AMMAN

On 18 April, Liebherr Indonesia and PT Amman Mineral Nusa Tenggara (AMMAN) celebrated the successful commissioning of eight PR 776 70-tonne mining dozers at the Batu Hijau copper-gold mine in West Sumbawa, Indonesia.

Liebherr Indonesia and AMMAN marked the handover of the mining dozers with a ceremonial key exchange.

Key representatives from both Liebherr Indonesia and AMMAN – one of the largest copper and gold companies in Indonesia – celebrated the commissioning of this dozer fleet at an event at Batu Hijau. The two companies came together to share their pride in the work accomplished by both sides.

“Liebherr's unfailing commitment to customer satisfaction reinforces our decision in selecting these machines,” says Jeffry Hasibuan, Senior Maintenance Manager for AMMAN. “I am deeply impressed by the Liebherr team's support in overcoming challenges and their openness to customer feedback. My sincere thanks to the entire team for their professionalism and tireless efforts.”

Packed full of features

Indonesia has become Liebherr’s second biggest mining dozer market in less than three years, since the introduction of the PR 776 at Batu Hijau in 2021. Thanks to the dozer’s hydrostatic drive, this machine not only offers exceptional onsite efficiency but also the lowest hourly fuel burn – and therefore the lowest carbon footprint – in the 70-tonne dozer class. The PR 776 is also available in high drive, a running gear particularly well suited for mining applications, which Wayne Perry, AMMAN’s General Manager of Mining, very much appreciates when on site.

“The PR 776, with its high drive, makes it a formidable competitor in the 70-tonne dozer class!” Perry says.

A bright future ahead

Christian Bombenger, Managing Director of Liebherr Indonesia, says “Our synergistic partnership with AMMAN has helped the PR 776 make remarkable progress in the Indonesian market and is an example of how collaboration drives our joint successes.”

Perry also praised Liebherr's performance in a competitive market, saying “Liebherr's product capabilities in our operations speaks volumes. Working with them is a delight, as we witness their continuous dedication to our success, shaping a legacy of best together.”
