According to the analysis of the operation of self-propelled equipment for 8 months of this year, the technical re-equipment of the fleet of machines at mines has led to an increase in the actual performance indicators of mining equipment as a result of improved productivity and reduced emergency downtime of equipment. The replacement of self-propelled mining equipment has a positive effect on the state of industrial safety and labor protection, as the new machines are equipped with all possible elements of an active and passive safety system
