Kolmar's overarching strategy is to increase production output and become one of the largest coaking coal producing and processing companies both in Russia and globally.
Kolmar is striving to become the leading company in Russia in terms of production efficiency setting new landmarks for product quality.
Achieving the goal
The development strategy of Kolmar group includes three stages: «6+», «12+», «20+».
Key parameters have been identified for each of the stages; the most important of which is the mining and production volume of coal concentrate. In order to achieve its target indicators, Kolmar puts into operation new facilities and builds new mining coal preparation complexes.
Stage «6+» is expected to complete in 2016. As part of this stage, Inaglinskaya-1 coal preparation plant and Inaglinskiy open-pit coal mine will be put into operation.
The second stage, «12+», will be completed by 3Q 2017. By this time, GOK Inaglinskiy will comprise an open-pit, underground mine and two coal preparation plants. Denisovskaya Eastern mine, with the production capacity of 4 Mta, and a coal preparation plant with the production capacity of 6 Mta of coal will be built at GOK Denisovskiy.
The third stage, «20+», will be implemented at GOK Inaglinskiy, which has license coal reserves in excess of 670 Mt. Another mine and Inaglinskaya-3 coal preparation plant will be built in 2017–2018.
Implementation of this strategy will allow Kolmar to increase the total volume of coal mined and processed to 20 Mt across all its operations, which will help Kolmar become one of the five largest coal-mining companies in Russia by 2019.
