Within the frame of the investment program the specialized equipment was purchased. The processing equipment is replaced step by step. There are works on expansion and modernization of production infrastructure. During the shortest time the dragconveyer of sorting complex (СК-100) at East site was reconstructed, it allowed increasing the volumes of shipment for large sized coals and nut coal.
– Since the start of the mine development in 1985 till the present time over 106 mln. tons of coal is produced. Only during the recent years the production volume was increased by 1.5 times. JSC “Shubarkol komir” works stable and is developing. We have great plans ahead, – the President of the JSC “Shubarkol komir” Tuleugen Akbayev noticed.
The high calorific capacity (up to 6000 kcal/kg) and low ash-content of Shubarkol coal (within 8%) refer it to environmentally-friendly (the content of sulfur does not exceed 0.6%.) Together with the main production the JSC “Shubarkol komir” implements projects on deep coal processing. In 2006 it commissioned the plant LLP “Sary-Arka Speckoks” for production of speckoks – the reducing agent for ferroalloy industry of Kazakhstan. To ensure in-house needs in electrical energy in 2011 the JSC “Shubarkol komir” had commissioned the first stage of power complex working with the use of utilized coke gas with power consumption of 1.6 MW.
JSC “Shubarkol komir” was the first among the collieries of the Republic, which implemented integrated management system according to three international standards for quality, environment and occupational safety. It resulted in increase of consumers both in the Republic and abroad.
