The second life of the shearer UKD 200-250
The shearer that was restored for “Zapadno-Donbasskaja” coalmine will extract “black gold” in the new longwall which will be put into operation on the 15th of February.
According to the deputy chief mechanic of “Zapadno-Donbasskaja” coalmine, Vladimir Kunik, miners are satisfied with the shearing machines produced by SPC “Mining machines” and not going to move to other models: “We have to rely on one type of machine in order to reduce our maintenance costs. This shearer was chosen. I think we made the right decision.” Along with the repaired UKD 200-250 the miners of “Zapadno-Donbasskaja” coalmine are already equipped with three new machines of the same model.
