The EKG-15M manufactured by IZ-KARTEX started working at Karelsky okatysh JSC.
It is planned that the shovel will produce more than 2.9 million CBM of mined rock per year.
The EKG-15M shovels are the first shovels of this model supplied at Karelsky okatysh. From 1980, 63 shovels from IZ-KARTEX have been supplied and commissioned at Karelsky okatysh: 59 units of EKG-10 and its modifications (from 1980 to 2007), four units of EKG-20KM (from 2016).
The EKG-15M will work at the Yuzhnyj quarry. Its separate units were been finalized according to operational conditions and specificity of mining at this quarry. The shovel cab has good sound-absorption, thermoinsulation, and vibration protection.
According to the tradition at Karelsky okatysh, the symbolic picture is designed on shovel’s body. There is the picture of a tiger on the body of new EKG-15M.
