Developing the next generation of large engines

As a new development and assembly center of the Liebherr Group, Liebherr-Components Colmar SAS launches a new diesel engine especially designed for the requirements of the mining industry: the D9812. Additionally, V16 and V20 cylinder variants of the D98 are already in development and will soon be available. They will not only meet the needs of mining application but also be ideal partners for other industries.

Cutting-edge facility

To develop these large diesel engines, Liebherr invested in a facility with the best infrastructure and technology. Liebherr-Components Colmar SAS is equipped with several test benches and an automated assembly line to produce the best-in-class diesel engines.
