Working with Liebherr Mining: an electrifying experience

Since the launch of its Zero Emission Mining Program in 2021, Liebherr Mining has embarked on a number of projects that explore how the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) can help to reduce emissions. One of these projects investigates different types of alternate energy sources that can be used in Liebherr’s mining equipment. To ensure that Liebherr Mining has the most suitable people working on this project, the product segment recruited a variety of very qualified employees into the roles needed to make the project a success. One such recruit was Kareem Oubid, a high voltage (HV) electrician currently working with Liebherr-Australia in Western Australia to support and maintain electric-drive mining equipment.

Remanufacturing at Liebherr Mining: commitment to the future

The Liebherr Mining Reman Program guarantees added value for both customers and for the environment. Remanufacturing, also known as “reman”, is the one of the most cost-effective choices for customers as the process uses the valuable resources of a used component to restore that component to as-new quality. Because remanufacturing uses fewer resources to produce components than building them from scratch, this program also significantly reduces the greenhouse gases emitted and the number of raw materials needed to replace used components. As such, Liebherr chooses to remanufacture components whenever possible and desired by customers. Find out more
