Port "Yuzhny" announced the completion of a comprehensive repair of a car dumper, through which an average of 500 gondola cars with iron ore pass through a day.
After agreeing on the details and identifying the window in the movement of the cars with the dispatching office, the workers of the mechanical repair shops drew up a defective statement and developed a work plan. The works lasted from June 28 to July 5.
“The main purpose of the repair was to replace the slewing ring on stacker # 2. At the same time, the drives on the conveyors of the car dumper were replaced. The repair and construction department replaced the railway switch on the tipper tracks, ”said Sergey Spitsyn, head of the mechanization department of the Yuzhny port.
Earlier it was reported that the port "Yuzhny" plans to increase the volume of cargo handling through the implementation of a number of investment projects: the construction of a new transshipment complex for imported bulk cargo, modernization of the export cargo complex and the installation of a new car dumper.
The State Enterprise "Commercial Sea Port" Yuzhny "in 2020 increased the export transshipment of iron ore by 53% compared to 2019 - up to 13.7 million tons. The largest export ore-coal terminal in Ukraine "TIS-Ruda" is located in the port. Carrying capacity - 7 million tons of cargo per year.
Recall that at the beginning of the year, Ferrexpo, the largest exporter of iron ore raw materials, cut the supply of products to the Yuzhny port by almost half in favor of an increase in supplies by rail to the European Union.
