"Severstal" will take part in the competition to develop the deposit Mezhegey coking coal in the Republic of Tyva. Operator will be the company "Vorkuta coal . "
Back in November of last year Rosnedra announced a contest "to use subsoil for the purpose of exploration and mining of coal on Mezhegey field" in the Republic of Tyva.
In January 2010, "Vorkuta coal "has set a production record. The company has shipped to customers more than 400 thousand tons of concentrate.
This result, according to experts, has become a very major achievement for the company, but at the same time remained room for further development. In January, CEP "Pechora" stood for about three days - had an accident earlier this month and adverse weather conditions (strong storm). If not for these factors, the totals would be even more significant.
- Above all, people have a certain attitude and a passion to surpass that record in the coming months, - says CEO "Vorkutaugol" Sergei Stepanov. - In February, most likely, will not work because there are only 28 days, and one of the spring months - maybe. Writing in excess of the record another 20-30 thousand tons of concentrate is quite real.
Achieve an excellent result was due to several factors.
First of all, excelled mine "North." Miners who worked out seam "Powerful" was given to the surface 160 thousand tons of coal with low ash content packs. Enrichment plant at the mine was able to process all the coal and achieved a record output of concentrate (42-43 percent) due to upgrade (installed spiral separators and centrifuges "Decanter") and the excellent work of the team. As a result, UOF "North" has shipped 125 000 tonnes of concentrate.
Secondly, the CEP "Pechora" commissioned two vacuum filters, which trap small fraction of the coal, rather than merge it as a sludge. In addition, each month enrichment technology and team work becomes more streamlined and clear. It happens less and less stops, ultimately increasing yield of final product.
Third, "Vorkuta" worked perfectly on seam "Triple". Although the UOF mine has an output of concentrate with 20 percent of the collective contribution to the common cause, however, is significant.
According to the executive director of the company, part of the concentrate, "2x" issued "Vorkutaugol" over the plan in January fell to the Cherepovets Steel Plant warehouse.
- In the coming weeks we may have some problems with the implementation of the product, - said Sergei Stepanov. - But the concentrate will be fully realized when we will have a period of re-cabling of lavas and the number of coal supplied to the factory, to decrease slightly.
