The mine is currently being prepared and, among other things, will have its own port facility where a used Liebherr LHM 1400 port mobile crane will be used. ENIMCAR has also imported two used Liebherr LTM cranes, an LTM 1080/1 and an LTM 1055-3.1.

The decision by the mine to use Liebherr mobile and port cranes was based on the fact that Liebherr can provide fast, efficient customer service in the region through sales and service company Liebherr Mexico, S. de R.L. de C.V. and can also supply spare parts in Cuba. Furthermore, ENIMCAR has had several Liebherr earthmoving machines, such as excavators and crawler tractors, for some considerable time. Liebherr works there with CON-IMPEX, which is the official customer service point for Liebherr mobile cranes and earthmoving machinery on Cuba. CON-IMPEX Handelsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG is a company based in Cuba and Germany which specialises in providing agency services for high quality technical products on Cuba. Its own technicians for construction machinery and cranes were trained at Liebherr Training Centres for this purpose.

Liebherr Mexico provides commercial and technical advice and support for difficult situations with technicians from Mexico who can travel to Cuba in less than 24 hours. From its head office in Mexico City, this Liebherr company covers Central America and the Caribbean. There is a total of twenty Liebherr LTM series mobile cranes currently in use on Cuba, seven of which are operated by state crane rental company Cubiza.
