Severnaya Zvezda received a positive conclusion from the State Ecological Expertise on a number of facilities of the Syradasaysky coal deposit, REGNUM news agency reported, citing Yenisei Siberia Development Corporation.
The company is implementing a project in Taimyr to build the West Taimyr industrial cluster for the production of coal concentrates from coking coal. This project is part of the Yenisei Siberia integrated interregional investment program.
The positive expert opinion relates to the coal mine within the South-Western section, an enrichment plant with a capacity of up to 5 million tons per year and the marine coal terminal. Design documentation for these facilities was sent to the Principal State Expertise (Glavgosexpertiza) of the Russian Federation.
According to the general director of the Yenisei Siberia Development Corporation Sergey Ladyzhenko, the implementation of the project will make a significant contribution to the development of the Krasnoyarsk region.
“The new coal cluster will create new jobs, contribute to the development of the infrastructure of the Arctic zone, and also ensure the Northern Sea Route loading,” Ladyzhenko emphasized.
