In the Ingulets GOK open pit, Metinvest Group put into operation a new route of the ore cyclic-flow technology (CCT) complex. This is one of the key strategic projects for the company. Metinvest allocated about $ 50 million for the construction. The general contractor of the project is Metinvest Engineering.
The CPT complex is designed for coarse crushing and transportation of ore from the lower horizons to the ore processing plants of the plant. The delivery of raw materials is ensured by a conveyor system. The path from minus 300 meters to the surface of the open pit ore will take 15 minutes.
“The CPT project is one of the largest for Metinvest Group. According to the project, the new tract was to be launched at the end of 2021. We have intensified construction and work as much as possible and postponed the commissioning date to the Independence Day of Ukraine. A promising technology will allow Inguletsky GOK to make long-term plans for the extraction of iron ore. In addition, the enterprise will significantly reduce the burden on the environment through the operation of conveyor transport, the use of a modern aspiration unit and a reduction in the operating time of internal combustion engines of dump trucks. After the launch of the complex, the plant plans to use it to transport about 40 thousand tons of ore per day ", - said General Director of InGOK Alexander Gerasimchuk.
