UrBC, Yekaterinburg, November 25, 2019. Alardinskaya Mine is currently EVRAZ Holding’s Raspadskaya Coal Company’s No. 1 mine in terms of meeting the annual target output figures.

‘The miners have extracted 2,520,000,000 kg of coal so far. Most of it got produced from Coalface 6-1-20, which got launched in March. To make the mining process there more efficient, an armored face conveyor was purchased and a major overhaul was given to the existing cutter-loader. Thanks to the miners’ well-coordinated work, the team soon started producing 300,000,000 to 350,000,000 kg of coal a month,’ says Raspadskaya Coal Company’s press service.

New equipment will keep arriving at the mine next year as well: a new extraction unit get delivered to Alardinskaya Mine in April. The unit will be installed in the coalface that the miners will start working in in the middle of 2020.

Director-General at Raspadskaya Coal Company Sergey Stepanov congratulated the miners on their outstanding work. Stepanov emphasized that every production record must be safe, and that excellent output figures should go hand in hand with accident- and emergency-free performance. To make sure this is always the case, the mining companies provide everything that is necessary: up-do-date gas-suction systems, efficient IT-based safety solutions, and safe and highly productive mining equipment.
