Uralmash – Mining Equipment (Orsk, subsidiary of Uralmashplant) finishes shipment of car dumper VRDS100L to EVRAZ NTMK (Nizhny Tagil).

The car dumper will be installed on the existing foundation for machine-assisted dumping of coal and coal concentrates for the by-product coke facilities at the NTMK. The machine is capable of dumping a loaded car up to 100 t in weight in 55-65 seconds.

VRDS-100L is the first car dumper manufactured by Uralmash – Mining Equipment LLC; starting from 2019 this UZTM subsidiary revives the business at the site of the Orsk plant declared bankrupt in the past.

"We face a task of reviving the manufacture of the entire line of unique machines produced by this engineering plant. We have already resumed production of converters, industrial mixers, induration machines, car dumpers and other equipment for metallurgy, which are on high demand today," says Oleg Tsetsora, general director of Uralmash – Mining Equipment LLC.

At present manufacture of two more car dumpers, mixer MP-420 and two converters (vertical KV-160 and horizontal KG-80) is underway at the Orsk site.
