NWPC Commissions Railroad to Oleniy Ruchey Mine

Total project cost approximately RUB 4.7 billion

North-Western Phosphorous Company will no longer use trucks to deliver apatite concentrate to Titan rail station. Following the commissioning of a new 50-km section of track connecting the mine with Aikuven station, trains will now carry product to buyers directly from the Oleniy Ruchey mine site. The year-long, large-scale project to build the railroad and infrastructure cost the Company RUB 4.7 billion.

Apatite concentrate will be loaded into rail cars at a new loading terminal, consisting of three conveyor galleries, transhipping and loading facilities. The automated terminal is equipped with a modern electric power supply system, rail car scales and an automatic dosing system.

The two conveyor lines that feed apatite concentrate for loading are equipped with a spill-gathering system to prevent possible losses during product transportation and to maximize the terminal’s efficiency.
