MRC said the investment growth is due to ongoing upgrades of the operator’s cargo handling and environmental protection equipment.


Since the beginning of the year, the MRC-owned fleet of handling equipment has been beefed up with a new Vityaz jib crane (lifting capacity of 63t), a Kalmar DCE160-12 forklift truck (lifting capacity16t) and a Mantsinen 120R materials handler with a 5 m3 bucket.


In addition, the Russian operator has acquired a mobile dust suppression system for outfitting the materials handling machine to be compliant with environmental standards while handling dry bulk cargoes.


Furthermore, to increase terminal handling capacity, the six-month development programme included spending on front-end engineering and design for integrated development of local railway infrastructure.
