Scheduled maintenance shaft furnace, which is in the branch «Production of polymetals» has ended. He belongs to a branch of Uralelectromed and is located in Kirovograd. The cost of repair was over $ 76 million. He was full parsing unit for melting. Communicated all the way down to the basement. Then again it was built according to the developed new project. In the new furnace is now functioning with all new components.

In total for today the branch operates 3 furnaces. Their productive figure reaches 6000 tons/month. The branch, which produces blister copper, shows the result of approximately 80 thousand tons/year. Capital repair of the furnace will allow to increase performance. In addition, it helps to ensure that the branch will be able to function longer.
