Guarantor of sustainability of mining companies

Construction of the century

Dear friends, it’s not a secret that at the moment a large-scale construction of a mining industry happens in Zabaykal’skiy kray. It is discovered at the country’s largest brass minefields in the middle of the last century.

Many years were spent on planning and preparing a truly ambitious extraction project of the desired resources which are located far from the capital of Russia. The final understanding of the technologies, which are required for the development, appeared only few years ago. From the very beginning, the immense scale of the project was extremely understandable. They have marked for nothing that the forthcoming volume of work can be named “construction project of the century”!

And you will ask what EnProTech has to do with all this. There is a direct connection!

The EnProTech team managed to take part in this massive construction project in terms of the complex equipping of the central laboratory of analytical and ecological profile. The project required a greater attention and an individual approach. In order to accommodate all the wishes of such a demanding Customer, we have undertaken the whole range of tasks related to the construction of the laboratory, from the layout of the premises, including the location of the instruments, to the selection of professional equipment and consumables.

This event is not only a major breakthrough in the history of the company, but also a big step forward, opening up new horizons for us. We are sincerely proud that we are able to become a part of such a truly global project for Russia and for the whole world.

We can outrun anything! Follow our news.

EnProTech in Siberia! Exhibition “UGOL ROSSII I MINING 2021”

Dear friends and colleagues, our EnProTech team took a part from 1st till 4th June 2021 in the XXIX International Specialized Exhibition of Mining Technologies “UGOL ROSSII I MINING” in Novokuznetsk, Russia.

After a while, we finally managed to meet old friends in Novokuznetsk, which is located far from St. Petersburg, and also to hold many interesting meetings with new business partners. We are so recharged right now and got a lot of positive emotions after the exhibition. We even took a part in a live broadcast dedicated to the exhibition for a local radio program.

There was a lot of attention to the EnProTech stand from the participants and visitors due to the fact that everyone could communicate with the company’s specialists and ask questions about interesting items of the EnProTech brand and receive professional advices of the equipment of our key partners:

–    Morgan is the world leading company in assay equipment.

–    Oreas is the world leader in the production of reference materials for the composition of ores and rocks.

–    Mark & Wedell is a designer and manufacturer of automatic selection systems.

–    Sartorius company is an international supplier of weighing and dosing equipment.

–    JKTech is a developer of innovative solutions for the mining industry.

Our Summary of Mining World 2021

Friends and Colleagues, it’s been a month since Mining World 2021 came to an end. Here is our report. The event once again brought together industry specialists and everyone involved in mining, processing and transportation of minerals.

The exhibition was held in the traditional format. Exhibitors were the biggest market players. During the business program it was possible to discuss the prospects of the industry and the current state of affairs.

For us the exhibition was like an instant. The program was very rich and business meetings followed one after another. Everyone in our team gave 100%. We were in business communication up to the last minute of the exhibition. We were all trying to quench our thirst for live communication, which had accumulated during the pandemic.

Note that we also missed the live communication with Customers, Partners and Colleagues. We tried to make the stand as convenient as possible for business communication, and we are sure that all the guests liked it. We would like to thank the organizers for the high-level event.

We would like to thank everyone who visited our stand and made these 3 days unforgettable. Now the next venue will be Novokuznetsk. Our team will visit Ugol Rossii and Mining from June 1 to 4.

Happy Geologist’s Day

Friends and colleagues, we would like to wish you a Happy Geologist’s Day!

We are delighted to have representatives of this fascinating and very important profession among our ranks. Romantic scientists – this is the conclusion one can draw about geologists when reading about their expeditions. These specialists study the structure and composition of rocks in order to discover minerals. Treasure hunters, whose treasure is not a chest full of money, but a huge deposit where resources may be mined in the future.

Given the length of our country, geologists have a lot of work to do. Many areas are not inhabited, so geologists have to go on long journeys to do their research, which in the profession is called the “field season”. Sometimes one season is not enough to find a deposit, and so they have to return to the same harsh region two or three times. Of course, the profession is not limited to field explorers. There are scientists trying to unravel the mysteries of our planet.

They say that romance is characteristic of geologists, so let your life be full of it. More scenic places. More sunsets and sunrises. More warm and sunny days. More moonlit and starry nights. More vivid emotions. Happy Geologist’s Day!

Let’s meet at the exhibition!

Friends and colleagues, we are back in touch!

In just three weeks’ time, the 25th MiningWorld Russia, the International Exhibition of Machinery and Equipment for Mining, Processing and Transportation of Mineral Resources, will open at Crocus Expo. The exhibition will run for 3 days, from 20-22 April.

Over 170 companies will present their products and equipment innovations at their stands, including OOO InProTech. We will be happy to present our industry novelties to all visitors.

We have also prepared a grand announcement which will be announced very soon. We are waiting for you at our booth №B2037. Our senior management will be there, which means that we will be able to discuss a number of issues in person at the highest level.

We will be ready to tell you about current trends, discuss the market situation and exchange experiences. We are looking forward to seeing you all, come along!

Happy 8th March!

EnProTech is a single representative of “Mark & Wedell” in Russia and CIS countries.

Friends and Colleagues, we were happy to present our new partner “Mark & Wedell” at the last Mining World exhibition.

At the booth we demonstrated a rotary sample splitter, that can be used as a separate equipment unit, as well as a part of a comprehensive system of representative sampling from the manufacturer. And let’s take a closer lok at  “Mark & Wedell”.

The range of equipment produced by “Mark & Wedell” is very wide and includes solutions for mining, mineral processing and transportation. The range includes: primary samplers, secondary samplers, dividers, extraction samplers, crushers and shredders, conveyors and feeders, sample warehouses, and automation systems.

«Mark & Wedell» gained its world-wide recognition for the unique simplified sampling system. It is manufactured by “M&W JAWO Sampling” division and is one of the world leaders in development and production of automated sampling equipment, devices and complex system solutions for representative sampling of aggregate bulk materials, powders, industrial dust and ash.

Unique solutions of “M&W JAWO Sampling” are widely known in the markets and among customers due to more than 40 years of experience. M&W JAWO Sampling has supplied over 2,600 automated sampling solutions. This represents about 850 successfully closed projects in more than 85 countries.

This year, a distribution agreement was signed between EnProTech and Mark & Wedell. We are glad that there are areas of common interest between our professional teams. Now, EnProTech is an exclusive representative of “Mark & Wedell” on the territory of Russia and CIS countries. We are sure that this is just a beginning of a long and fruitful partnership.

Mining World 2020 exhibition ended in Moscow

Friends and colleagues, last week the Mining World 2020 exhibition ended in Moscow.

It was a unique event for this year – mining specialists were able to meet live. Our team also took part in the exhibition. For us, it was a chance to meet our regular customers and find new ones.

We were happy to present our new partners from Mark & Wedell. They supply systems for complex sampling. We also hurry to inform you that we are the official distributor of Mark & Wedell in Russia and CIS.

The exhibition was held at a high level. Separately, I would like to thank the organizers, who, despite the severe restrictions, were able to create this holiday for all guests and exhibitors.

MINEX Russia Mining and Geological Forum was held last week in Moscow.

Our team took part in a very important specialized event. We would like to thank all participants and organisers for making such a feast for mining industry professionals. It is particularly valuable this year as the world is struggling with pandemia and face-to-face communication is challenging.

The forum gave us the opportunity to meet with key clients and partners. It is worth mentioning that  standards of organisation
were high and all necessary precaution measures were abode.

Active autumn is not over for us and we are getting ready for yet another expo in the mining industry.

“Out-of-the-office” mode

Colleagues and Partners, from now on we work remotely. The reason is the disease COVID-19 identified within our team. We took all the necessary precautions that were prescribed by the Russian consumer protection agency Rospotrebnadzor, but still could not protect ourselves completely against the virus.

When the employee demonstrated first symptoms, the test was made and the result, unfortunately, came positive. We have decided to go back to working remotely and monitor our health closely.

Shifting to a remote work will not affect the delivery times and quality of work at all. All obligations will be fulfilled on time and at high level. We will keep you posted on changes in our working mode.

Take care!

Nerves of steel, hearts of gold. Happy Metallurgist Day!

Metallurgist Day in Russia is celebrated every year in July, on the third Sunday of the month. Unfortunately, this year celebration will be a bit different. This does not negate the entire significance of the holiday and does not overshadow great deed that metallurgists perform every day.

Metallurgist Day was established on September 28, 1957 by the decree of the USSR Supreme Soviet Presidium. This way the Soviet government noted the important contribution of the domestic metallurgy to the restoration of the country’s economy after a devastating war. Such work has always been considered hard. It is not for nothing that after 15-20 years of experience at the metallurgical facility the title “Honored Metallurgist of Russia” is awarded.

Today this day is celebrated by representatives of different professions, each of them is somehow connected with ferrous or non-ferrous metallurgy: blast furnaces, steel workers, distributors, foundry workers, blacksmiths and many others. Miners who extract ore – a necessary element for the production of metal – also consider this holiday as their own. Our team sincerely congratulates you on the Day of Metallurgist. In such a difficult time, workers in the metallurgical industry are a real support for our country. A difficult and dangerous trade is always a conscious choice of strong people. Thank you for it!

We wish you good health. And you already have hearts of gold! Let all hardships pass by. Happy holiday!

EnProTech – Breakthrough of the Year!

Friends and Colleagues, our team has once again reached its goal and confirmed the high quality of work. We became the winner in “Breakthrough of the Year” ctegory as a part of the Competitive Sales Leader Award.

This year, 200 suppliers from all over Russia strove for victory in 8 nominations. Only 76 of them reached the final. The projects of each participant were evaluated by an independent market experts. As a result, companies that achieved a substantial sales increase got the highest score.

In 2019, we launched our own EnProTech equipment line and significantly increased sales. The experts saw the true value of our work and chose our team as the winner in “Breakthrough of the Year” nomination.

We are not planning to stop and ready to release additional units of equipment this year. They are a logical continuation of the equipment line and meet the market demands.

We would like to thank award organizers for recognition of our success. Winning the “Breakthrough of the Year” nomination gives us additional motivation and proves that our company has chosen the right path for development.

Special gratitude to our Customers. We work for you! This victory would not have been possible without the trust placed in our team.

One more important step!

Friends and colleagues, we are glad to inform you that we have changed our location.

Yet another milestone for our company. Our team has expanded significantly, and as we pay great attention to the quality of workspace we have decided to move to a more comfortable and cozy space.

By now, we have settled down and would be happy to welcome you in our new office at 43, Havanskaya street in St. Petersburg.

Our company is actively growing and developing, and we are not planning to stop! Since the very beginning, our priorities remain unchanged – high quality and individual approach to each client.

We started as a small company. Today we are a leading supplier of equipment for assay laboratories. The high level of our work is highly valued by leaders of the mining industry, which once again proves that we are on the right path.

1 May – Spring and Labor Day

1 May is a world-famous date that has changed its meaning many times. The first May Day were organized by pagans, trying to fertilize the goddess of fertility before spring sowing. And the official holiday was approved by the Congress of the International in support of the Chicago workers’ struggle against exploitation.

Soon after, 1 May was soaked in the spirit of communism, and a couple of years later demonstrators were already calling for the immediate overthrow of power. At the end of the revolution, they continued to commemorate it as Workers’ Solidarity Day.

In 1992, the last name was approved – the Day of Spring and Labor. Since then, congratulations on 1 May have been voiced in 66 countries.

Friends and Colleagues, congratulations on 1 May! We wish you spring mood and success in your work. Let your deeds be kind and creative, let your thoughts be bright and your work always brings you pleasure!

Friends, happy Health and Safety Day!

Today, 28 April, the World Day for Safety and Health at Work is celebrated in many countries around the world. It was established by the ILO (International Labour Organization). The main mission of the holiday is to prevent accidents and occupational diseases at work. It was started by American and Canadian workers who in 1989 gathered to commemorate their colleagues who died at work.

The holiday, of course, refers not only to the mining industry. It concerns all workers. Compliance with safety standards and requirements is the most important condition of the working process. Its violations can have serious consequences for the company and the health of employees.

Friends, we congratulate everyone who stands at the machine today, manages machinery, extracts minerals, builds houses and industrial facilities, works in numerous factories and plants. Safe work for you, without injuries and diseases. Be careful, don’t break safety standards, and remember – your family is waiting for you at home!

Increase our online presence! We stay home – we stay together!

Dear Colleagues and Partners, the current situation dictates conditions in that we will probably not be able to see many people in person any time soon. It is great disappointment for us, but now the most important thing is to observe the norms and requirements of the epidemic.

In the beginning of April MINEX Kazakhstan forum was to be held. This exhibition unfortunately was postponed until autumn. At the same time the organizers do not forget that their venue is a place where professionals communicate. We received an offer from the organizers of the exhibition to take part in the Geologist’s Day, that was gladly used.

Colleagues and Partners, we will increase our presence in the network. We will start with small now we offer you to subscribe to our social networks. We have already launched YouTube, Instagram and Facebook. Follow the updates and be healthy!

Happy Geologist’s Day!

Friends, we want to congratulate all our Сolleagues in the industry on Geologist’s Day. This professional holiday is celebrated on the first Sunday of April. This day is important for everyone who works in such a difficult industry as mining.

The main objects of geology research are rocks. We are directly involved in the search and extraction of minerals so we consider Geologist’s Day to be our professional holiday.

The date of the holiday was not chosen by chance. In this period specialists start planning summer expeditions and field works. Snow falls, frosts recede, so the assessment of soil conditions becomes much easier.

Colleagues! It is important to remember that we are all responsible for the mineral resource base of the state and are its support. We want to pay tribute to those who in difficult conditions, risking their lives, are searching for and extracting resources necessary for the country.

We wish you unique finds, great discoveries, a treasure trove of minerals, unquenchable interest in your activities and great benefit from your work!

April is not a vacation time!

Dear Сolleagues and Clients, all of you have probably heard that this month has been declared a non-working month in Russia. However we continue to work in the normal mode.

The whole team has decided that we must act together in this difficult time. We will continue to work for the benefit of our Clients.

It is important for us to provide mining companies in a timely manner as they are the backbone of the economy and should not stop working. We have taken all necessary measures in advance and successfully moved to a remote work format that allows us to maintain our high level of organization of work.

In these difficult times we continue to be the guarantor of stable operation of mining enterprises. All obligations and agreements will be fulfilled in normal mode!

Take care of yourself and do not worry. We will do everything that is possible now from our side.

We continue to work!

In such a difficult time it is necessary to strictly follow the recommendations of authorities and representatives of medicine. Now it is important to remain calm, quickly adapt to new realities and help each other.

Dear Clients and Partners, we continue our work, despite the fact that the week from March 30 to April 3 is declared a non-working. We made timely decisions, which were taken at the state level. Our team has been working remotely for a week, so we do not need any additional measures related to limiting the spread of coronavirus infection.

We understand that it is impossible to stop the complex technical process of the mining enterprise immediately, so we decided to continue working in a continuous mode to support our key Сustomers.

We act with correction for external factors, but they do not affect the quality of our work. Our team ensures that all obligations and agreements are met as usual. All engineers will be in touch with you and any questions you may have will not go unanswered.

We also remind you that we have prepared sufficient inventories of goods that are required by mining laboratories on an ongoing basis.

Colleagues and Partners you can rely on us in these difficult times!

Delivery time will be extended

In response to the fast global spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and the identification of new cases of coronavirus infection in the UAE, local authorities decided to close Dubai Airport until the global situation is resolved. Regular flights to Moscow and St. Petersburg have been suspended since 24 March 2020.

Taking into account the current circumstances, we inform our Customers that the delivery time for Australian goods, certified reference materials in particular, will be increased. From our side, our logistics department is working out all possible options to solve this problem and deliver the goods within the dates specified by us earlier.

We sincerely hope for your understanding and support in this force majeure situation.

Our team is our treasure!

There is a complicated epidemiological situation in St. Petersburg. It is caused by a new coronavirus infection (2019-nCov). “EnProTech” Ltd responsibly approaches measures to ensure the safety of the team, taking into account the preventive recommendations of the relevant government agencies and supervisory structures. Last week we started implementing measures aimed at revealing signs of an infectious disease at colleagues, and at prevention of infection spread. Daily disinfection is carried out in the office. All business trips are limited.

As the epidemiological situation worsens, a scheme has been developed that will allow us to work from home without the threat of infection. From Monday, March 23rd, we will switch to remote work mode, which will last until April 5th inclusive. The period may be extended, depending on the situation with the spread of the virus.

In making this decision, we first want to protect our team from potential danger. We appreciate every member of our team and always focus on social responsibility.

The OREAS trademark is registered in Russia!

Being the exclusive distributor of the Australian company Ore Research & Exploration Pty Ltd, EnProTech Ltd is actively engaged in the promotion of OREAS CRMs, making this product more and more popular among laboratories and geologists of mining enterprises in Russia and the CIS countries. Unfortunately, the registered abroad trademark does not have any protection and valid force within the territory of Russian Federation. Thus, continuing to develop the popularity of OREAS CRMs, EnProTech Ltd together with partner Ore Research & Exploration Pty Ltd have decided to register the OREAS trademark in Russia.

Finally, on January 13th 2020, the OREAS trademark has been registered in the State Register of Trademarks and Service Marks of the Russian Federation.

For EnProTech Ltd, as a reliable partner and a successful supplier, it is important to support the brand development of the products offered, as well as to guarantee its Customers the quality and originality of the goods supplied.
