VENTURES: MTU Expands Services To Zambia
Recent Western Cape Business News
CAPE TOWN-based MTU South Africa, has recently expanded its services to Zambia in an effort to increase direct support to the company’s OEM’s in South Africa as well as its reach and quality of service to customers in Zambia.
MTU SA recognised Zambia as a fast developing mining region and with a well established relationship with Sandvik Mining and Construction, Zambia; the company is now expanding its footprint into copper belt. With this expansion, which arose in December 2010, MTU SA will be in a better position to focus on parts availability and offer clients in the region expert technical support.
“With a focus on total measurable advantages, MTU South Africa has displayed a win – win philosophy during the last few years to our customers. With our coverage well in place to deliver a world class service within the borders of South Africa, it came as no surprise when we were approached to be directly involved in other regions as well,” says Michael Baumann managing director of MTU SA.
In general, the MTU sales and service in Zambia is provided by MTU South Africa but with a focus on the Mercedes Benz and Detroit Diesel product range that has proven to be the number one choice in many of the underground mining equipment. The MTU Series 2000 and 4000 mining engines operational in Zambia will be supported by the MTU distributor Diamond Motors that also covers the sales and service for all MTU engines in the countries Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda.
MTU plays a significant role in the mining sector providing the mines with effective emergency back-up power for their operations. MTU supplies various mines in Sub Saharan Africa in the following applications:
• Diesel engines for very heavy mine dump trucks – mainly with diesel-electric drives
• Engines for power stations with output from 5 to 100 MW
• Specialised applications such as gensets for heavy load equipment, e.g. excavators
• Engines for shunting locomotives.
