BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) welcomed a new R 9800 to their fleet at Goonyella Riverside coal mine in March to add to their three existing R 9800s on site.

The BMA Project and Liebherr build teams completed the assembly over 48 continuous days, overcoming challenges to deliver the machine ready for production on time. Most importantly for our customer and our people, the team delivered the project without injury, ensuring everyone went home safely each night.

BMA filmed a timelapse video of the build and the R 9800 at work, which can be viewed on their YouTube channel.
