Expansion of cooperation with JSC "Karelian Okatysh"

The contract for two EKG-20KM was signed with JSC "Karelian Okatysh". Two such excavators are already working successfully in the Central and Southern quarries of this company. According to the contract, the third and fourth EKG-20KM will be made and shipped to the customer until June 2017.

The first EKG-20KM excavator was launched in JSC "Karelian Okatysh" in June this year. The second was commissioned after successful completion of acceptance testing at the end of September.

Installation of EKG-20KM was carried out by the official distributor and service partner of IZ-KARTEX "Gormashservis".

Russian Bogatyr Svyatogor was painted on the first excavator EKG-20KM a.

The enterprise JSC "Karelian Okatysh" is one of the leading factories for the extraction and processing of iron ore in Russia, producing 20% of all Russian iron ore pellets and a reliable partner of IZ-KARTEX. The acquisition of EKG-20KM is caused by the need to reduce the cost of excavation rock mass and increase in production. The launch of the new machines will enable to gradually withdraw  EKG-10 from operation, which are currently forming the basis of the excavation park of the enterprise.
