The first units of the new reloader have been assembled

NKMZ has started assembling of a bridge-type grab double-carriage ore reloader designed and manufactured by NKMZ workers for Azovstal iron and steel works (Mariupol).

Compared to the loaders previously produced at NKMZ, this one is the largest. Its dimensions are as follows: the distance between the supports – 115 m, the total length of the beams – 185 m, the height – 49.7 m. It also has a significant weight of 2400 t. The most important advantage of new reloader is its high production capacity of 800 t/h that is achieved by means of two grab cars moving independently of each other. In the previous NKMZ reloaders, only one such grab car was used.

The reloader’s travel mechanism has already undergone check assembly and has been accepted by the representatives of the customer at NKMZ. Today, the elements of the superstructure bridge, rigid and flexible supports are being welded and passed to check assembly according to the schedule.

The beginning of the installation of the reloader at Azovstal iron and steel works is planned at the end of this year and its commissioning – at the end of the next year.

During the years of Ukraine’s independence, NKMZ has manufactured, shipped and installed two coal grab reloaders for the coal storage facilities at Novosibirsk TPP (RF) and Azovstal iron and steel works, as well as one ore reloader for the ore stockyard of PJSC Zaporozhstal.
