Stoilensky GOK, a company of NLMK Group, resumed production of iron ore products in hot test mode on September 22, which was suspended on September 7 due to the collapse of the conveyor gallery for ore supply.
Recovery took 12 days from the start of work - two days faster than planned. All work was carried out around the clock. 800 employees of SGOK, NLMK Group companies and contractors worked at the site.
The total cost of repairs was about 250 million rubles.
During a forced shutdown at SGOK, major overhauls were carried out at the concentrator and factory pellets, which were planned at the end of 2020 and in 2021. Optimization of repairs will reduce the volume of concentrate production losses in 2020, as well as increase production next year.
During the restoration work, NLMK, the main consumer of SGOK's products, was provided with iron ore raw materials thanks to its own reserves and external supplies. The incident did not affect NLMK's steel and rolled products production.
