EKG-10 started working at Taybinsky coal mine on July 1st
Taybinsky coal mine is a new customer of IZ-KARTEX. The 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.
The shovel was mounted by the regional service company "OMZ-Siberia-Service."
IZ-KARTEX would put two EKG- 10 this year at Taybinsky cut. The second one is already shipped to the customer, commissioning is planned for the IV quarter of 2015.
The uniqueness of the second excavator EKG-10 at Taybinsky cut 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.
