Following results of 2013, JSC Dalur significantly enhances key operational indicators
In 2013, JSC Dalur produced 562 tons of uranium, which is 33 tons more than in 2012. Labor productivity increased by 1% and uranium production costs decreased by 4%, with the company’s uranium production costs being the lowest in Russia.
“These indicators have been primarily achieved due to the efforts of our employees, who continuously work on the process optimization. The application of new and efficient engineering and technological solutions also plays a vital role,” highlighted Nikolay Poponin, JSC Dalur Director General. In 2013, the company’s employees submitted 17 proposals for improving the workflow, of which 12 proposals were implemented in the industrial practices. These include, for example, improvement of sampling procedures, feed lines, flow meter mounting etc. Furthermore, three projects within the framework of the Rosatom Production System were implemented, such as: standardization of the procedures for sulphuric acid reception at the railroad base and supply to on-site storages; standardization of the procedures at the site for shipping packaging set preparation; and standardization of the procedures at the central warehouse.
