The resources of the Syradasay field are estimated at five billion tons
Construction of the Syradasay coal concentrator has begun in Taimyr in the north of the Krasnoyarsk Territory, the regional government's press service said on Friday.
The project for the construction of a coal cluster based on the Syradasay deposit (110 km southeast of the Dikson village) has the status of a resident of the Arctic zone and is part of the Yenisei Siberia complex investment project. It is implemented by Severnaya Zvezda (part of the AEON holding). The resources of the deposit are estimated at five billion tons. The volume of investments by 2025 will amount to more than 45 billion rubles.
"In Taimyr, earthworks have begun at the construction site of the cleaning plant - one of the main objects for the development of the Syradasay coal deposit," the message says. It is planned that the factory will produce five million tons of coal concentrate per year. The facility will be locatded 52 kilometers from the future Yenisei seaport in the western part of the peninsula, as well as in close proximity to the coal mine - the distance between them is 8.5 km. The construction of a rotation camp is underway.
The cluster project includes the creation of a coal mine with a capacity of five million tons per year at the first stage and 10 million tons per year at the second, the construction of an cleaning plant and the creation of the necessary infrastructure, including the Yenisei seaport, a road, a power plant, and an airfield. The Severnaya Zvezda company plans to fully complete the project of creating a coal cluster in 2040, said Roman Trotsenko, chairman of the Board of Directors of AEON.
The Yenisei Siberia project, which unites Khakassia, Tuva and the Krasnoyarsk Territory, was initiated at the end of 2017. In February 2018, the idea of creation was supported by President Vladimir Putin. In April 2018, the regions signed a cooperation agreement within the framework of the program.
