More than 50 motors used at new iron ore mine
More than 50 of WEG’s H- and M-line motors are to drive production facilities at the largest single copper mine development in Kazakhstan by both volume and value. The Bozshakol Clay Project has an estimated annual ore processing capacity of 30 million tonnes and will employ around 1,500 people, with a similar number involved in the construction phase.
WEG is a supplier of electric products with a daily production of 60,000 motors.
“Being a supplier for a such large-scale project really demonstrates WEG’s high-level of engineering competence and expertise with complex international EPC business,” says Sergey Mushchenko, managing director at WEG CIS.
“We see our top priority as providing the perfect quality of service for the Kazakhmys Corporation throughout the installation, commissioning and operation of the equipment. We are always there to enable smooth and reliable work from our motors”.
The development phase of Bozshakol Clay Project in Kazakhstan began ahead of schedule, and the first ore will be processed at the concentrator by 2015.
