A multilateral cooperation agreement was signed between the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, ARMZ Mining Machinery, LLC and ALROSA, PJSC
The document is aimed at developing partnerships for creation of domestic modern technologies, machinery and equipment used in opencast and underground mining, as well as developing the mining industry and heavy engineering in Russia.
«Our country has all the necessary conditions for the development of certain areas of mining machinery production: from growing domestic demand of the largest mining companies to machine-building facilities capable of satisfying it. The active work of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation is aimed precisely at the consolidation of these resources,» noted Deputy Minister Mikhail Ivanov.
«Among other things, the signed agreement stimulates the creation of new models of mining machinery under the ARGO trademark. We already have a successful experience in providing battery-powered load-haul-dumpers for the largest uranium mining enterprise: E.P. Slavsky PIMCU, PJSC. I am sure that we will be able to replicate this experience for other mining companies in our country interested in high-tech domestic machinery, such as ALROSA,» commented Igor Semenov, Chairman of the Board of Directors, ARMZ Mining Machinery, LLC.
ARMZ Mining Machinery, LLC was established less than a year ago. During this period, the company implemented a project for the production of 140B lithium-ion battery-powered load-haul-dumpers from scratch. The machines have been tested and are successfully operating at the mines of E.P. Slavsky PIMCU, PJSC. Currently, seven units of machinery have rolled off the assembly line; the company received an order for another 8 units for the next year. In general, the facilities will allow producing up to 50 units of mining machinery per year.
