A presentation of the new powered complex took place at the plant “Corum Svet Shakhtyora”. Powered face complex is a complete set of mining equipment used for coal production and transportation, providing high equipment performance and ensuring achievement of planned indicators.
Longwall complex includes KDK500 longwall shearer, SPC230 armoured face conveyor (285 meters long), SPC230 stage loader, as well as 3KD90TS powered roof support.
— The presentation of our second powered complex on the quality day is of special importance to me, — states Mikhail Potapov, acting General Director of Corum Group. – I am sure that this complex will set new records. During the pandemic and under the restrictions we have mobilized all forces available and prepared the complex for commissioning in time. The commissioning was performed online. Every day we prove to ourselves and to the entire world that Ukraine is capable of producing modern and marketable equipment of the highest quality and design level. I am grateful to the Corum team for its work.
When developing the KDK500 longwall shearer, Corum engineers increased its power-to-weight ratio and implemented a diagnostic and control system for main units with the relevant information displayed on a monitor. The shearer is capable of working within a wide range of seam thickness – 1,4 – 3,2 m. KDK500 is one of the Corum longwall shearers which are most popular among miners.
3KD90TS powered roof support which is a part of the longwall complex is a special design and has an increased limit load to support unstable and heavy roof with structural damage.
— 3KD90TS roof support is intended for working at coal seams with thickness from 1,4 to 2,4 meters, — says Tatiana Kalugina, director of “Corum DrMZ”. — High-strength steels are used for the manufacture of the roof support. The type of steel is chosen and used in accordance with the structural strength requirements and the customer’s requirements, in conformity with GOST 31561-2012 and European Standard EN1804. The quality management system of the “Corum DrMZ” is consistent with the requirements of the international standard which is confirmed by the certificate of conformity ISO 9001:2015. I am proud of our company and our plant: we perform complicated orders, we have earned the trust of our customers, we are developing our production capabilities. For “Corum DrMZ” large orders, such as roof supports, mean stable work. It means stability for our employees, their families, the city and community.
The first powered complex allowed our customer to increase the performance and reduce the accident rate while producing up to 10 thousand tons of coal per day, as well as to set a record in 2019: the miners produced 2,5 million tons of coal and completed the plan 2 months prior to the deadline. The second longwall complex presented by Corum will allow to produce even more coal in order to achieve energy independence of the country.
— The equipment included in the complex is made of steel with high wear resistance and includes modern components made by European manufacturers. Due to the use of innovative technologies, engineering solution and Corum Group professional team we are capable of developing and manufacturing modern complexes which are well represented at the market. Nowadays, “Corum Svet Shakhtyora” successfully works and is in constant development. We implement innovations and receive new orders which provides 100% workload for the personnel, as well as workplaces, regional stability and confidence in the future for our employees and their families”, — says Alexandr Kovalchuk, director of the plant “Corum Svet Shakhtyora”.
