More than 50 mo­tors used at new iron ore mine

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - MOTORS, DRIVES AND TRANSMISSIONS -

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.
