Norilsk produced mining equipment under its own brand

January 27, 2023

In the late 1950s, the Mechanical plant produced cars with the Norilsk brand. At that time, the plant was undergoing technical re-equipment, and there was little good equipment in the country.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Actually, the Mechanical plant was created in 1941 in order to manufacture its own non-standard spare parts for the combine.

Norilsk design engineers designed NBS-2 for open-pit mining – the Norilsk drilling rig, and for underground work – the BMN model, which stands for Norilsk drilling machine. The inventor of the latter, by the way, was Mark Hasdan, not only a talented mechanical engineer, but also a Norilsk poet.

The operation of these machines was very efficient. For example, NBS-2 at the Norilsk open-pit mines increased drilling productivity by three times. Its modifications worked on Coal Creek and then Bear Creek until the end of the 1960s.

Subsequently, their production was transferred to the Magnitogorsk plant of mining and processing equipment, and some of them went to Egypt for the Aswan dam construction.

In the History Spot’s previous publication, we told that in 1998 the Norilsk people watched the TV channel Severny Gorod on the air for the first time.
