For the development of the mine using the most modern equipment. In 2015, at the «Norilsk Nickel» enterprise new self-propelled machines arrive in the Arctic. Its number will reach 22 units. To date, it delivered 11 units of self-propelled equipment. The remaining cars are expected before the end of the year. New equipment purchased under the project to update the worn equipment.
