Outcomes of the Mining World 2017 Exhibition

The 21st International Exhibition "Mining World 2017" (Moscow, Crocus Expo) took place during April 25-27

As usual, the KANEX Group had a vast exposition at the Exhibition. Every year, we try to surprise and attract our guests not only by the stand's architecture but also by demonstrating our products, production capabilities and the full range of services that we provide our customers with. Our company, indeed, offers them all kinds of works that are in demand during the design cycle and development of mineral deposits, as well as during the subsequent processing stage.

In recent years, the emphasis in the interests of our customers has shifted from simple delivery of equipment for their production facilities towards comprehensive services, including the design of enterprises, engineering, manufacturing and supply of equipment for them, capital mining operations and construction of production facilities. We can offer our customers all of this.

The capabilities of our design division, the Kanex Project Company, were demonstrated at our stand. We told our guests about the contract mining operations carried out by our division "Trest-UralShakhtoSpetsStroy" using the example of the project implemented at Rasvumchorrsky mine of OJSC "Apatit". Products of our production divisions, OJSC "KMO" (Kyshtym, Chelyabinsk Region) and "OKB Mikron" LLC (Krasnoyarsk), were presented traditionally widely. This year, it was the development of production of mine rail transport systems at our enterprises (locomotives, mine cars, unloading stations) that sparked the greatest interest.

Our partners also pay much attention to the implementation of the Krasnoyarsk Heavy Machine Building Center construction project (the "OKB Mikron" future development site), which should begin its operations as early as the end of 2017.

Moreover, at the International Conference "Technologies of Underground Mining of Minerals", one of the sponsors of which the KANEX Group was, a representative of our company presented a new joint project carried out together with a Canadian company, NMT, on the automated bottom discharge systems for underground mines. This technology, which is new for the Russian enterprises, aroused great interest among the audience.

The Exhibition and all the events that accompanied it were fruitful and interesting for our company. Our stand was visited by representatives of about 150 companies.

Next year we are also planning to take part in this exhibition, which is one of the central events for the industry.
