New trailer at VMMP
09.11.2018On November 8, the new trailer was delivered to Vilnohirsk Mining and Metallurgical Plant, a subsidiary of PJSC UMCC. It will transport equipment and gear at the mining and transport production division (MTP).
The trailer has the carrying capacity of 60 t and is priced at UAH 2.550 million. It was ordered from the domestic manufacturer Verkhnyodniprovskiy plant VARZ.
The MTP performing the main works at the open-pit mine needs this equipment. The division, as a rule, operates heavy machinery – bulldozers, cranes, excavators. And all these vehicles and oversize loads, pumps, pipes and other technological equipment often require transportation to the place of work. In these cases, the trailer is required.
Ivan Honchar, Deputy Head of MTP for transportation, noted that the old trailer that was used at the plant before the purchase of the new one had the same carrying capacity. But it is worn out by 90% and requires overhaul. Without the trailers the work of the whole plant would have been extremely complicated.
That is why PJSC United Mining and Chemical Company approved acquisition of this asset for VMMP and the subsidiary ordered it from the domestic manufacturer – Verkhnyodniprovskiy plant VARZ, specifically for the needs of the Vilnohirsk subsidiary. All details were assembled and approved. On the order the plant, the width of the load platform was increased and the new trailer was delivered to the plant on November 8.
The workers of the mining and transport production division are happy with the new acquisition. MTP specialists assure that the new trailer will allow to move the equipment twice as fast.
“The trailer will be used at all subdivisions of the production that have large and oversize load,” says Honchar. “It will also be used for transportation of pumps, bulldozers, pipes, caterpillar cranes, oversize equipment and cargos. This trailer is a real prize for us!”
This is the 45th transport unit that the company purchased for VMMP, with the investment into the transport division of the plant along exceeding UAH 271.5 million, emphasized Oleksandr Gladushko, Acting Chairman of the Board of PJSC UMCC. He believes that Vilnohirsk MMP has not seen such amount of renewal that substantially increased the subsidiary's capitalization.
