New mining equipment was successfully put into operation at SUEK’s Vostochno-Beisky opencast coal mine in Khakasia in the third week of May.

The new equipment includes three new 130 t BelAZ dump trucks and a new Komatsu PC 1250 excavator.

“The commissioning of new equipment is another step taken to increase production at the Vostochno-Beisky open pit,” commented SUEK-Khakasia Acting General Director Vladimir Azev, “experienced drivers, with impressive track-records in production and skills competitions will ensure the safe and efficient use of this new equipment at the mine.”

The SUEK Group has invested over 3 billion roubles in the Vostochno-Beisky opencast operations. Since 2011, the mining site has received large hydraulic excavators with 7 to 15 m3 buckets and 130 t dump trucks. Over the last five years, performance at the Vostochno-Beisky opencast increased almost 1.5 times – with monthly output increasing from 400 to 600 t per employee.

In 2015, coal output at the Vostochno-Beisky opencast reached 3.2 million t, an increase of more than 13% on 2014 production levels.
