PJSC United Mining and Chemical Company is actively updating production assets of its subsidiaries. Another GAZel vehicle priced at nearly half a million hryvnia was purchased for Vilnohirsk Mining and Metallurgical Plant for the purpose of faster delivery of key assets and materials.
The company is introducing latest processing technologies, renewing outdated production equipment and machinery for open-pit mines at the subsidiaries. That is why there is a continuous need for increasing and modernizing the motor pool. This is how Acting Chairman of the Board of PJSC UMCC Oleksandr Gladushko explains investments into GAZel vehicle for the plant in Vilnohirsk.
At such rate of development of this subsidiary, he says, the motor pool is lacking vehicles to service the provisions department and other subdivisions of the plant. Due to the production necessity, the company's management decided to purchase one more vehicle – GAZel.
In summer last year, PJSC UMCC purchased the first GAZel vehicle for VMMP. It is also used by the provisions department to deliver materials purchased by the company from other cities. GAZel also satisfies the need for internal transportations within the plant's subdivisions.
“Because we are conducting continuous repairs and renewing production equipment and machinery, there is a need for extended motor pool at the Vilnohirsk plant,” comments Yevhen Pedan, Chief of Provisions Department at VMMP. He said the vehicle would be used not only by the provisions department, but also by the whole plant, all its subdivisions. “We will have one GAZel vehicle all the time and the second one will serve as a reserve, when needed, so to say,” says Pedan.
The new vehicle was put into operation on February 16. The company expects that with the current number of special transport at the subsidiary, the work on provision of materials will speed up.
