The second EKG-10 started working at Taybinsky coal mine on October 30th
The uniqueness of this machine is that it will be powered by AC drive. This solution is used for the first time in EKG-10. The use of the AC drive reduces the load on the mechanical equipment (reduced moment of inertia, intelligent control), reduces the amount of maintenance (no brush assemblies in electrical machines), and allows to use the information system efficiently.
The shovel was mounted by the regional service company "OMZ-Siberia-Service."
Taybinsky coal mine was put into operation on November 14 2014, at Kiselevsk in the Kemerovo region. Estimated working time of the cut will be 49 years old.
