According to Vadim Pavlov, “Port Vysotsky” General Director, this technique has very well established itself, not only due to high performance and maneuverability, but also because its operation reduces the percentage of damage to transport cars to a minimum. Currently, all coal unloading in Vysotsk is done by such devices.
