East Mining Company ordered a Russian excavator with unique technical specifications

East Mining Company has signed a contract with Uralmashzavod for the supply of a career excavator EKG-20, manufactured on special order. It is planned that the increased productivity excavator will arrive at the Solntsevo coal mine in December 2018.
A key feature of the new excavator is the increased bucket capacity. It was changed from the standard 20 m3 to 22 m3 by request of East Mining Company. “This excavator takes into account the geological conditions of the mine. We expect that such a machine with a modified bucket design will increase excavation per cycle by 10%, ”said the director of the Solntsevo coal mine, Igor Kovach.

East Mining Company is actively modernizing its production facilities. Thus, in 2018, the park of quarry equipment of the Solntsevo coal mine was replenished with a twenty-two-cube diesel excavator Komatsu PC4000 and four BelAZ 7530 dump trucks with a capacity of 220 tons. In the Coal Sea Port of Shakhtersk two new "Stackers" were commissioned - ship-loading machines with a capacity of 1000 tons / hour. In addition, the company is focused on improving the efficiency of business processes, including implementing a dispatching system on the main mining equipment.
