The plant implemented a project to install 5,000 modern energy-efficient LED lamps

The Northern Mining and Processing Plant (Norhern GOK) has implemented energy-efficient lighting devices in pellet production workshop No. 2. 30 million hryvnias were allocated to the implementation of the project. Metinvest Kryvyi Rih reports about it on its Facebook page.

5,000 LED lamps were installed at all stations of LURGI 552 A and B burning machines, as well as in the administrative and household building.

Modern lighting has significant advantages. Thanks to LEDs:

  • working conditions improve;
  • the level of security increases;
  • energy costs are reducing.

According to energy experts, the investment will pay off in two years.
