Client Problem

The Liebherr R 9800 is one of the largest mining excavators in the world. At 800 tonnes it is designed for large-capacity mining operations, and can work on almost any surface. Developed as the optimal loading tool for large scale mining operations, the R 9800 is able to achieve the most challenging targets.
The mining operation couldn’t continue operations during noise sensitive times such as night time and windy conditions and in noise sensitive areas close to communities and towns.
They needed to reduce the noise level without compromising on operating ability and adding excess weight to the machine.

Solution

Minetek were commissioned to design the first sound attenuation package in the world for the Liebherr R 9800. The sound attenuation package was designed and manufactured to reduce the operating noise of the excavator down to the site noise level.
With the Sound Attenuation Package installed the Liebherr R 9800 operates at an amazingly low noise output.
It showcased the mines’ concern and proactive approach to controlling noise, set an industry benchmark and proved noise suppression at the source is now best practice.
