LW BOGDANKA ENTERS INTO AN AGREEMENT FOR THE PURCHASE OF THE THIRD PLOUGHING SYSTEM

Tuesday, 2013-02-12
Lubelski Węgiel BOGDANKA S.A. has entered into an agreement with Caterpillar Global Mining Europe GmbH for the supply of another longwall ploughing system. Under the agreement, the machine will be delivered to the Company by the end of 2014. Its start-up is scheduled for the third quarter of 2014.

This is going to be the third ploughing system at the Company. The other two systems which are currently in use have also been provided by Caterpillar Global Mining Europe GmbH, a leading producer of mining and construction equipment in the world.

"We have good experience with the ploughing systems currently in use. We are one of a few mines in Europe which takes advantage of this state-of-the-art solution. We also set the record for the highest daily output generated from a single wall with the use of a plough among mines which use this machine. This record-breaking output generated at the Bogdanka mine reached 24,900 tonnes per day. The third ploughing system will allow us to increase our annual output to approx. 11 million tonnes, and use our resources more efficiently,
” said Zbigniew Stopa, President of the Management Board of Bogdanka S.A.
