Leading iron ore mining and processing plant in Russia, Karelian Pellet has resumed supplies of iron ore concentrate to the Cherepovets Steel Mill. This is one of the first projects implemented as part of Upstream. Thanks to him, CherMK significantly reduced the purchase of this product from third parties. The concentrate shipment route at Karelian Pellet was mothballed 10 years ago, but in the first quarter of this year a decision was made to put it back into operation. It was necessary to adapt to the preparation and pelletizing section of the concentrate under new and rather difficult conditions as soon as possible. For this, some nodes were repaired, for example, a self-propelled hopper and main conveyors. The technological chain was reconfigured so that it was possible to send concentrate for loading into wagons, without stopping the pellet production process.

In the production of concentrate, new ceramic filters help, the installation of which was completed at the beginning of the year. Thanks to this equipment, moisture adjustments occur promptly and efficiently. Changes have also taken place on the finished product site. Here, the specialists of the technological automation and metrology workshop automated the work of the concentrate loading hopper.

Mr Maxim Vorobyev Director General of Karelsky Pellet and Olkon said that “This project is a prime example of cooperation within Upstream. Team members found an effective cross-functional solution that benefited everyone. We continue to work in this direction colleagues from Kostomuksha and Cherepovets are in constant communication and search, and we already have new joint ideas that will also have a significant effect.”
