Abstract

A coal pipeline, 262 km long, has been built in Belovo (Kemerovo), connecting "Inskaya" mine and TPP (thermal power plant) No. 5 (the city of Novosibirsk).
Its trial has shown, that modernization of the project is a vital necessity. The flowsheet provides preparation of coal-water suspension immediately after the extraction of coal on the surface of mine, thus excluding the stage of dewatering, and transportation of it by a pipeline.
