Four more loaders arrived at VMMP subsidiary


The company continues to renew its assets. Last week, VMMP transport pool received new machinery again
On Wednesday, December 13, a new JBC front end loader for the transport department of the plant arrived at Vilnohirsk Mining and Metallurgical Plant and on Friday, December 15, the subsidiary received three forklifts for the forwarding unit. Thus, seven new loaders will now operate at VMMP.
“Under the investment plan, PJSC UMCC will spend UAH 16.2 mn this and next year for providing the subsidiary with the loading equipment. There will be 8 different types of loaders at the transport pool of Vilnohirsk subsidiary,” comments Acting Chairman of the Board of PJSC UMCC Oleksandr Hladushko.
JCB 4CX front end loader can be used for loading and unloading, land and road works, digging trenches for pipelines and cables and performing repair work. This model allows development, laying, compaction and loading of soil, as well as its movement through a small area.
“Renewal of the machinery and equipment is a very important area for the plant, as its transport pool is extremely worn. We already received three loaders in autumn. The new JCB 4CX front end loader we received last week is a universal highly efficient machine that can be used for loading and excavation works,” says Chief Engineer of VMMP Oleksandr Prokopenko. “It will be in very high demand at our plant by the majority of subdivisions. The loader costs UAH 2.6 mn.”
In the transport and forwarding unit, the loaders are widely used for loading the plant's products, loading and unloading works and storage. The received Maximal FD diesel forklifts are designed specifically for such works as lifting, moving, unloading, loading, storing (stacking) of goods with forks. One of them has a carrying capacity of 30 tons, two others - 25 tons.
“We also received three diesel forklifts for loading finished products at the assembly ground of the forwarding unit. The cost of this equipment is UAH 940,000,” continues the chief engineer of the subsidiary.
In the last months of 2017, Vilnohirsk MMP received loaders for performance of different kinds of works for the total amount of UAH 15.5 mn, according to Prokopenko. “These are significant investments into the plant’s equipment that we’ve been waiting for for the past 14 years,” he said.
