In order to coordinate the overhauling activities of Unit B2 with the works of investment mining machinery repair within the coal system “Drmno”, the overhauling activities of the part of main mining machinery and equipment engaged in the coal system of the company “Drmno” have also begun. This is actually a shortened overhaul of the part of the mining machinery engaged for coal excavation and processing.
