Volnogorsk Iron and Steel Works, a part of the United Mining and Chemical Company, will invest 3.5 million UAH in the project to relocate hydraulic transport means.
The project will allow saving up to 60 million UAH per year.
Each year, the company excavation machines move forward 1 km. BelAZ and BELL trucks transport ore from the mining site to the ore warehouse. There special machines using water turn ore into pulp and send it via pulp lines for processing. The relocation of the hydraulic machines will help decrease transportation time and fuel expenses.
In particular, this year the enterprise intends to relocate its second part of hydraulic machines for 800 meters. The route of each truck will decrease by 1.5 km.
The company will be able to save 5 million UAH per month of fuel, or 60 million UAH per year.
The project will be completed in 35 days. (Ukrainian metal)
