LIEBHERR FIELD TRIP
FEB 2, 2001

Liebherr is a manufacturer of construction equipment.  You have probably seen Liebherr backhoes, bulldozers, and other equipment at construction sites.  The Liebherr facility in Newport News designs and builds mining trucks - HUGE mining trucks.  They are currently working on an order for six 240-ton mining trucks to be shipped to Austrailia.  These trucks have 12 foot diameter wheels and five flatbed trucks are used to transport one truck to the nearby marine terminals for shipping.  The date for this field trip has been chosen to coincide with the completion of the first mining truck.  A former TCC Engineering student that later graduated with a BS in Mechanical Engineering from ODU will give us the tour.
