At OBP-1, 50 m of thermal insulation of heating and hot water pipelines was restored. 10 electric heaters were installed at the transshipment nodes of the conveyors, and air-heating units were installed at the sites of the filtration section’s receivers. The frames in the grinding span of the above-bunker section, concentrate warehouses and ore supply section were also glazed.
At OBP-2, in particular, an audit of heating units on forklifts and in anti-noise cabins was conducted. Currently, production buildings are being glazed, curtains are being installed on the gates of the units’ buildings. The overflow drains on the roof of the enrichment building were cleaned, the fire hydrant wells were insulated, the irrigation system and water pipes were blown out.
High-quality preparation for the cold period will allow to keep the equipment in working condition and make working conditions more comfortable.
