UrBC, Yekaterinburg, November 23, 2016. EVRAZ Holding’s Kachkanar Ore Mining & Processing Enterprise keeps working on its Severny Mine in order to increase its ore output to 30,000,000,000kg a year, EVRAZ Holding Ural’s press office reports.

For one, an up-to-date tire changer was introduced at the vehicle department to replace the tires of 130-ton BelAZ trucks. The time it takes to change one tire (2,200kg each) has by now shrunk by three times. The tire changer is fitted with a special security system that blocks the unit automatically in case anything goes wrong.

The vehicle department also got a new car wash for large-size automobiles, which both improved the working conditions and reduced water spending.

‘The company has been investing in Severny Mine since 2015. So far, we have introduced six new reloading points, built over 5km of new electric mains, and launched eighteen 130-ton BelAZ trucks, wheeled bulldozers, graders, a fuel charger, an irrigation unit, and the plant’s first wheeled loader with a 10-12m3 scoop,’ the press service says.

The goal is to switch to a combined ore delivery system, which will both increase the overall ore output and cut the cost of transporting rock from the lower sections of the mine and increase the excavator’s annual productivity figures.
