Published date: 10 Feb 2020
The crew of operators of a walking dragline ESH 20/90 working at the open-cast mine Razrez Nazarovskiy (owned by SUEK company) achieved a record output at the year-end 2019 by loading 6 million 220 thousand cubic meters of overburden. According to the company data this is the maximum result for such type of machinery.
The year's record is achieved by the crew led by Sergey Mozhgin during the competition between machine crews conducted by SUEK in its facilities in the year 2019. According to the company spokesperson this result was achieved due to the high professional skills of the machine crew that regularly overfulfills production plans and perfect technical condition of the dragline.
