Two new traction units have been put into operation at Mikhailovsky GOK (part of Metalloinvest). This new equipment was purchased as part of Metalloinvest's investment program to increase production efficiency. The new electric locomotives have an increased capacity, which will enable the Company to increase the number of dump trucks used from 10 to 11, if required.

The electric locomotives will be used to transport iron ore from the very lowest levels of the open-pit mine, which is currently 370 metres, to the crushing and beneficiation plant.

The bodies of the new traction units are highly reliable, and the units are equipped with a microprocessor-based management system, which reduces operational and maintenance expenditures. The driving cabs are exposed to lower sound and vibration levels and are air conditioned.

As part of the implementation of the investment programme to update Lebedinsky GOK and Mikhailovsky GOK's mining and transportation equipment from 2014-2017, Metalloinvest purchased over 350 basic units of equipment: 19 traction units, 298 dump trucks, 22 heavy dump trucks, 13 excavators and 7 drilling rigs, in addition to smaller pieces of equipment. Two more excavators and a heavy truck arrived at the enterprises under lease agreements.
