Vostochnaya Mining Building Substations for Coal Conveyor
Russian Vostochnaya Mining Company continues construction of the main coal conveyor and its infrastructure. Simultaneously with the installation of the conveyor structures, equipment is being installed at the Konveyernaya-1 and Maiskaya-1 transformer substations. They are designed to provide uninterrupted power supply to the entire conveyor line system, the total power consumption of which is 16 MVA.
The construction of substations involves the use of modern and energy efficient equipment, which reduces power losses. To control electricity consumption for auxiliary needs, the substation will be equipped with electricity meters, information from which will be transmitted to an automated information and measurement system for commercial electricity metering. Also, this system is designed to register energy consumption parameters, generate reporting documents and transfer information to collection centers.
The capacity of the Mayskaya-1 substation is 16 MVA. According to the project, the substation will be able to supply electricity to the crushing and screening complex, a warehouse at the Solntsevsky coal mine, a technopark and part of a conveyor. The Konveyernaya substation has a capacity of 20.1 MVA. According to the project, it will feed the coal terminal, as well as the main conveyors of the Shakhtersk Coal seaport.
The project of the main coal conveyor of the Eastern Mining Company provides for the transportation of coal from the Solntsevsky coal mine to the coal seaport of Shakhtersk. It will allow replacing the use of road transport for coal transportation with logistics in an environmentally friendly way. Its production capacity will be 4,000 tons per hour. The conveyor under construction will be the longest in Russia, its length will be 23 km. The construction of a coal main conveyor is included in the list of priority projects in the Sakhalin Region.
