The security system equipped with new, modern technologies has been commissioned in Mindeli shaft in Tkibuli. At all four operational areas in the shaft, at a depth of 400 meters from the sea level, 23 modern monitors have been installed for personalization of the miners. The introduction of modern technology will minimize the risk of intoxication by toxic gases and the methane explosion hazard.
A special scheme was developed at Mindeli Shaft for automatic control of harmful and explosive gas concentrations, staff detection and monitoring systems by Ukrainian and Chinese specialists. Saknakhshiri invested USD 1 200 000 for the introduction of modern security system.
As a result of introduction of the new system, each miner will be equipped with a special outfit with a numbered individual chip attached to it. Their data will be automatically transferred to the monitors installed at the area and the operations service, which identifies precisely the location of the miner.
