30.08.2017

In August, Belovskaya Mine CJSC inducted into service two Komatsu's new PC1250-8 hydraulic excavators as part of upgrading its excavator fleet. The total of 140 million rubles was invested in the purchase of the new vehicles.

The excavators with the cumulative capacity of 460 thousand cubic meters of rock per month are multipurpose and may be used in overburden stripping and coal extraction. "We have been working with this excavator manufacturer since the launch of the Karakansky-Zapadny mine. The new excavators have a large capacity and are comfortable for operators. The machines allow the enterprise to increase its production capacity by 10 percent and reduce the net cost of excavating a cubic meter of rock by 30 percent compared to other excavators of the type, which are currently in use," Karakan Invest LLC's Technical Director Alexey Vorobyev said.

Karakan Invest LLC tops the region's rating of coal mining companies with regard to the labor productivity. In 2016, a worker produced 8316 tonnes of coal per year, whereas the 2017 forecast shows an increase to 8,532 tonnes per year. This is the highest rate among the region's other enterprises (excluding the companies carrying services to third-party organizations) and this is twice as high as the Kuzbass mines' average. Karakan Invest LLC has the lowest rate in the Kuzbass region with regard to the net cost of coal extraction per tonne. In 2016, the net cost totaled 589 rubles per tonne. The company maintains the net cost below 2011 level despite the 56-percent cumulative inflation for the period.
