10 February 2016
The Chegdomyn washing plant of OJSC Urgalugol (SUEK Group) has produced its five-millionth tonne of coal concentrate since the plant commissioning. 

Urgalugol conducts underground and open-pit mining at the Urgal deposit in the Bureinsky basin in the Khabarovsk Region. 

In 2015, Urgalugol produced 5.6 million tonnes of coal. The construction of the Chegdomyn washing plant with the annual production capacity of 6.0 million tonnes of coal commenced in 2011 and was completed in 2013. During 2015, the second section of the washing plant reached its design production capacity of 1,000 tph. In 2015, the plant processed 3,239,000 tonnes of coal – a 222% increase as compared to 2014.

In order to increase the carrying capacity of the railway, it was reconstructed simultaneously with the construction of the plant.

In total, SUEK invested RUB 20.8 billion in the development of Urgalugol.

The plant continues to recruit staff, and the employees are trained to improve their skills. At present, 177 employees work at the plant. The plant has set up a new coal chemistry laboratory equipped with an unrivalled coal quality control system across the Far East.
