Karabashmed is carrying out the modernization of its capacities.
At present the foundation has been laid for the new Kumera converter with the capacity of 150 tons. The assembly of the machine will start in May, while commissioning is scheduled for Q3.
The new converter will have gas purifying and exhauster equipment, which will both minimize the environment impact and improve working conditions.
Last year the company received the first two Kumera converters.
The current modernization will increase the plant capacity to 150 thousand tons of raw copper per year. Investments this year will total 2 billion rubles. (Ukrainian metal)
