Two mine shovels EKG-12K made by IZ-KARTEX, St.-Petersburg (a member of UZTM-KARTEX group) are commissioned at the works of PGS "Erdenet Company" (Mongolia). The Mongolian mining company procured new Russian machines within the framework of a company development project.    

Erdenet is the leading Mongolian state-owned company engaged in mining and processing copper-molybdenum ore. The company is currently upgrading its facilities: total investments for the previous year amounted to about 245 million USD.    

While implementing their investment program, Erdenet has procured four EKG-12K mine shovels from IZ-KARTEX since 2018: the first one has been supplied in 2018, the second in 2019, and two more machines have been commissioned last December. According to Mr. B. Otgondava, the manager of an open-cast mine owned by PGS "Erdenet Company", the company decided to procure machines made by IZ-KARTEX because these machines are optimally adapted to the conditions of Mongolian mines.     

"We are satisfied with the performance of machines made by IZ-KARTEX. These machines are very reliable and user-friendly. We expect the new machines to show high performance level and stable trouble-free operation", says the chief engineer of an open-cast mine of PGS "Erdenet Company", Mr. D. Ulammandah.  

Today Erdenet company is using 11 different models of earth-moving machinery made by IZ-KARTEX.
