Ingulets GOK of Metinvest continues construction of a strategic facility - a cyclical-flow technology in a quarry. Investments in the project amounted to more than $ 45 million.
The complex of ore cyclic-flow technology (CCT) with a capacity of 27 million tons of ore per year is one of the largest projects of the Ingulets GOK over the past decade. It consists of two tracts - Vostochny and Zapadny and is intended for coarse crushing and transportation of ore from an elevation of -300 m to ore processing plant No. 1.
All construction and installation work at the plant is planned to be completed by the end of July. At this stage, we have completed the installation of a coarse crusher, apron feeders. The assembly of conveyors and belt hitching, laying of cable and wire products, installation of aspiration, fire extinguishing, signaling and communication systems continues. Industrial tests of the central heating system with ore supply are planned to be carried out in August.
The new complex will allow the plant to make long-term plans for the extraction of additional volumes of iron-rich ore. In addition, due to environmentally friendly and economical conveyor transport in the quarry, the technogenic load on the environment, operating and maintenance costs will be reduced.
