ABB has signed a new Memorandum of Understanding with Liebherr Mining Equipment to collaborate in bringing solutions to market that will reduce the greenhouse gas emissions associated with heavy machinery in mining. The two leading technology companies will explore the development of state-of-the-art equipment and digital solutions for overall electrification of mine sites, with particular focus on trolley support. Bringing together complementary areas of expertise, ABB and Liebherr will also address the demands of remote industrial applications in their quest for net zero emissions mining machinery.Under the agreement, the companies will study and evaluate the possibility of future projects, using technologies available to them now and those becoming available in the coming months and years. Working closely together will improve understanding and awareness of which existing solutions they might combine and where new research and development opportunities might be.The announcement follows a call from ABB earlier this year for more collaboration between OEMs and the key technology suppliers. The mission of developing combined solutions is to enhance the efficiency and flexibility of customer businesses, contributing to the reduction of CO2 and supporting a sustainable society. ABB is collaborating with some of the world’s most innovative mining customers, OEMs and technology innovators to accelerate the decarbonization of operations. ABB is committed to playing a fundamental role in the transition towards zero emissions industrial machinery, drawing on its domain expertise in electrification, digitalization and automation solutions, to support this objective.
