SUEK has received a new Komatsu PC 1250 excavator at its Vostochno-Beisky mine in Khakassia, Russia.
The excavator is the 100th Komatsu machine to be delivered to SUEK mines. Since 2005, the Japanese company has supplied SUEK with a range of equipment from excavators to loaders, dump trucks, graders and dozers.
As part of the celebrations to mark the delivery of the machine, SUEK operators closed a matchbox with the excavator bucket.
And when it comes to coal mining, SUEK Khakassia’s Vostochno-Beiskiy and Chernogorsky mines have set several world records using Komatsu excavators, according to SUEK Khakassia’s CEO, Alexey Kilin.
SUEK is Russia’s largest coal company, supplying both domestic and export markets. It employs more than 33 000 people across its coal mining, processing, transportation and service businesses.
