Vysokogorskiy Ore Mining and Processing Enterprise (part of Evraz Group) won the first prize in the regional energy-saving contest held among the largest industrial enterprises, reports the spokesperson for Evraz Group.

The experience of the company’s experts who have been successfully introducing the energy-saving technologies there was particularly praised in the letter of thanks prepared by Sverdlovsk Region Government.

The engineers of Vysokogorskiy Ore Mining and Processing Enterprise designed a long-term energy-saving investment program in 2006. So, within the next five years, the company is to implement a number of projects aimed at upgrading their current power engineering facilities. Two new turbine compressors are already operating at Yuzhnaya and Estyuninskaya mines; a modified compressor plant and improved energy record keeping systems have recently been launched at Lebyazhinskiy agglomeration shop. The latter was made possible due to the installation of special gas and hot water meters at the boiler-house and on the ignition furnaces. The actual energy consumption data can now be used when paying the suppliers, which saves the company quite a bit of money.
