First bolting rig Roof Master 1.8 AWK ATEX has been commissioned in Russia

The first bolting rig Roof Master 1.8 AWK ATEX, delivered to one of the salt mines in Russia has been recently transported down the shaft and prepared for operation. The whole procedure was supervised by our servicemen: Wojciech Jeżewski, Zbigniew Charytoniuk and Zigniew Serwach. Due to the conditions in the mine the rig had to be dismounted, re-assembled and commissioned underground. Also the training of the operators took place underground. In this salt mine located at 1100 m undergound the temperature is above 35 Celsius degrees and there is an intense salt dust. Threfore, the working conditions for both humans and machines are very harsh.
