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
