The Sibanthracite Group is making investments to further secure their position as the top ranked producer and exporter of UGH anthracite. The company recently announced it has invested in and acquired additional excavators and dump tracks as part of their overall vehicle improvement strategy implementation. Under the continued leadership of Dimitri Bosov, the company is strengthening its foothold as Russia’s largest producer of metallurgical coals, and the vehicle improvement initiative is yet another indicator that Sibanthracite is Russia’s most dynamically developing coal company.
The company’s environmentally friendly coal is second to none in the world, and as the company continues to invest in expanding its operational capabilities, Sibanthracite will continue to dominate within the coal space.
The company is activating a very specific strategic goal to acquire a fleet of machinery that is more powerful and productive than its current machinery in the short term – at least twenty percent of their current fleet will be replaced with this new and innovative machinery by the end of this year.
Investing in this upgraded machinery will also have a positive impact on the bottom line – their new crawler mounted, electric drive EKG-12K excavator actually reduces the cost of current strip-mining operations in half compared with the traditional hydraulic machines. The innovations featured in this machinery will enable Sibanthracite to operate more quickly, easily, and at a lower operational cost.
As part of this overall vehicle improvement strategy, Sibanthracite has also acquired 71 BelAz Dump Trucks. These new dump tracks are engineered for maximum efficiency, requiring fuel only once per day, as well as a total charge time of only two hours for its seven-disc rear wheel systems. This fleet of new dump trucks feature a wide range of additional innovations that reduce load spillage, enable the driver to monitor tire pressure from the cabin, include rear view cameras and have more economic fuel consumption.
Sibanthracite’s new fleet of excavators and dump trucks are already being utilized at mining sites.
