The mining equipment park of Svyatogor JSC (an enterprise of the UMMC metallurgical complex) has been replenished with three modern units.
Thus, the miners received two BelAZ mining dump trucks (Republic of Belarus) with a carrying capacity of 136 tons each. The purchase of equipment became possible due to the implementation of the program of replacement and modernization of worn-out equipment at Svyatogora. The "newcomers" will replace their Japanese "brothers" - Komatsu mining dump trucks, which have been in operation since 2004.
The dump trucks will be used to transport rocky soil. These "strongmen" will be put into operation after registration with Rostekhnadzor.
The new vehicles will be equipped with the GLONASS system, which will allow monitoring not only diesel fuel consumption, but also compliance with the speed limit. At present, the cars are going through the obligatory start-up procedure - the lining of the body with metal plates.
BelAZ is not the only acquisition. Another novelty awaits its hour - a Komatsu RS 2000 excavator (Japan) with a backhoe and a bucket volume of 11 cubic meters. "Yaponets" will also replace its predecessor.
The costs of JSC "Svyatogor" for the purchase of mining equipment exceeded 400 million rubles.
