Kuzbassrazrezugol Management Company (an enterprise of the raw materials complex of UMMC) is completing the renewal of the main equipment park planned for 2021. More than a dozen new bulldozers have already started work at the company's opencast mines.
“Over the past five years, Kuzbassrazrezugol has put into operation a sufficient number of modern excavators of large unit capacity to carry out production activities, but to improve the efficiency of mining transport complexes, it was necessary to update the bulldozer fleet,” said Igor Kirilov, Head of the Energy and Mechanical Department of Kuzbassrazrezugol Management Company. “This modernisation has now affected all the enterprises of the company.”
In total, Kuzbassrazrezugol Management Company’s 2021 production modernisation programme includes the receipt of about 110 units of basic mining and transport equipment, including more than 80 mining dump trucks, 17 bulldozers and 5 motor graders, hydraulic excavators with different bucket volumes.
As a reminder, during 2021, Kuzbassrazrezugol changed its investment plans twice, focusing on the positive dynamics of the coal market and adjusted coal production plans. At the end of 1Q21, it was decided to double the cost of purchasing the main mining and transport equipment: from RUB 7.5 billion to RUB 15.2 billion. This allowed the company to double its delivery of mining trucks planned for 2021 and begin modernising its bulldozer fleet. At the beginning of the third quarter, the investment plan was expanded with two more large-scale modernisation programs: auxiliary technological equipment and non-technological vehicles. In total, Kuzbassrazrezugol Management Company plans to allocate RUB 25.8 billion for the development of production in 2021.
