IGEA products attract much interest at UGOL ROSSII & MINING mining technology trade fair

The products of the Institute of Mining Electrical Engineering and Automation attracted much interest of the Russian miners at the 22nd UGOL ROSSII & MINING International Trade Fair for Mining Technology held in Novokuznetsk last week.

Our products were presented at the trade fair jointly by our specialists and Keytrade trading company. Two stands, one indoor and the other outdoor, introduced the following mining equipment:

  • Microprocessor-assisted shaft signal system (MASS)

  • Loudspeaker communication and warning system

  • UNL laser direction indicator Ex-version for mining

  • VKO optical belt scale

  • Air-cooled explosion-proof frequency converter

  • Compact (magnetic) control stations

Also there was a brand new IGEA product: mine shaft conveyance monitoring and alarm system intended to provide wireless voice communication with the conveyance, alarm function, and shaft cable slipping sensor monitoring.

The presented mining equipment at the stands was examined by both our current customers and potential partners. Control stations, frequency converters, mine shaft alarm systems and conveyance monitoring and alarm system were of particular interest to the coal and mineral miners, coke makers, potash ore and salt producers.

The Russian mining industry showed lively interest to the IGEA’s competence in designing and upgrading hoisting and conveyance machines and fan plants. Company’s experience in similar projects is the top priority here, and the IGEA can boast of an impressive reference list for upgrading the most critical and energy consuming mine facilities.

The conversations between Keytrade/IGEA and trade fair visitors shall continue in negotiations. Besides, there are plans to establish partnership with the vendors of equipment that would significantly expand and enrich the Institute’s product functionality.
