“DTEK Energy” has produced first two shearers for mines

“In January 2024, DTEK Energy produced the first two shearers for Ukrainian mines – a tunneling machine and a shearer.

“It is important that factory workers do not lose momentum in the difficult conditions of war and continue to contribute to the common cause… This year, the miners’ task remains unchanged – despite the war, to maintain coal production at the maximum and sufficient level,” Ildar Saleev, the company’s CEO, wrote on his Facebook page on Tuesday.

According to him, in addition to shearers, the energy holding’s machine builders also manufactured and repaired 90 units of mining equipment, as well as 67,000 parts and components in January.

As reported earlier, DTEK’s machine builders manufactured 15 new roadheaders and shearers and 1.1 million spare parts for Ukrainian coal miners in 2023.

“DTEK Energy ensures a closed cycle of electricity generation from coal. The installed capacity of thermal power generation amounted to 13.3 GW as of January 2022. The company has established a full production cycle in coal mining: coal mining and enrichment, machine building and maintenance of mine equipment.
