NLMK Resumes Operations at Stoilensky Iron Ore Plant

On September 22nd, 2020, Stoilensky Mining and Beneficiation Plant, an NLMK Group company, a Metal-Expo regular exhibitor, ​resumed production of iron ore products that was discontinued on September 7th, 2020, following the collapse of an ore transportation conveyor gallery, in hot-testing mode. Restoration took 12 days from the start of the works: two days ahead of the plan. All works were being performed around the clock. 800 Stoilensky and NLMK Group employees and contractors were involved in works on site. Repair costs totalled approximately 250 million rubles.


During the forced shutdown, Stoilensky carried out major repairs at its beneficiation plant and the pelletizer, planned for end of 2020 and for 2021. Optimization of repairs will help reduce concentrate production losses in 2020 and boost production volumes next year.

During the repair period, the iron ore needs of NLMK Lipetsk, the main consumer of Stoilensky products, were covered by the company’s own stock and external supplies. The incident did not impact NLMK Lipetsk steel and rolled product output.
