Eastern Mining Company’s Solntsevsky coal mine increased its coal production by 33% in the first 6 months of 2020 compared to the same period last year. The production indicator exceeded 5 million tonnes. During the same period last year, 3.8 million tonnes were produced. Solntsevsky coal mine Deputy Director for Production Ivan Podgornykh said “The increase in production volumes became possible thanks to the program for the modernization of mining equipment and equipment, as well as through the introduction of digitalization. Vostochnaya Mining Company annually invests in the development of the Solntsevsky coal mine. This made it possible to increase production capacity and achieve higher coal production rates.”

During the implementation of the investment program from January to June 2020, the company significantly renewed and expanded its fleet of specialized vehicles. 21 units of modern high-performance mining transport equipment were put into operation: 4 excavators, 3 bulldozers and 14 BelAZ trucks.

Also, as part of the implementation of the digitalization program at the Solntsevsky coal mine, it was possible to achieve a reduction in routine downtime and an increase in the load of specialized equipment. Due to the introduction of an automated monitoring and control system, the use of transport capacities has grown by almost 10%.

The volume of stripping work at the Solntsevsky coal mine increased by 46%: in the first half of 2020, more than 51 million cubic meters of rock mass were moved. A year earlier, this figure was almost 35 million tonnes.
