Third EKG-15M mining shovel was supplied on a gold mine "Bakyrchik" in Kazakhstan
Manufacturing and supply of the shovel was carried out within the framework of the contract signed in October last year with the company TOO "Bakyrchik mining enterprise" (Management company JSC "Polymetal"). The contract includes the manufacture and supply of turnkey installation of five EKG-15M machines.
Gold mine field "Bakyrchik" is unique: the average gold content in the ore is 8 grams per ton of ore, while the average content for other fields is in the range of 2 grams per ton. Starting in 2014, the mine owner is the Russian company JSC "Polymetal" - one of the leading companies for the extraction of silver in the world, the largest Russian manufacturer of silver and one of Russia's largest gold producers. Development of the field in the first stage, within 7-10 years, will be carried out in an open way.
Modern EKG-15M was designed on the basis of observations in the exploitation of its predecessors, using the latest technology, 3D design, allowing improved design of the machine before starting its operation, in order to optimize the characteristics of the equipment and to ensure the reliability and durability of its components and systems.
In addition to structural and technological improvements at key nodes and mechanisms, EKG-15M has a lot of changes aimed at ensuring driver comfort.
To ensure smooth operation of equipment on the territory of Kazakhstan, a subsidiary company, OOO IZ-KARTEX Kazakhstan-service", was opened in Astana.
