The Russian corporate group ALROSA is the world’s leading diamond producer. ALROSA mines 97 % of all diamonds in Russia and has a 27 % share of the diamond production market worldwide. The group focuses on prospecting, mining, reprocessing and selling rough diamonds. ALROSA is based in the town of Mirny, which is located in the Sakha (Yakutia) Republic in the north-eastern part of Asian Russia. Due to the region’s extreme continental climate, winters there are very cold and long, while summers are short. The working conditions in this region are therefore extreme too. In winter, temperatures drop below −45 to −50 °C.
Between 2013 and 2014, MAHA Russia delivered nine mobile wheel engaging column lifts of the RGE type to ALROSA. The high-quality equipment proved to be exceptionally reliable – even under these extreme climatic conditions. According to the client, the lifts have definitely proven their worth – particularly when comparing them to lifts from other suppliers.
