The company as a strategic partner has developed cases in two directions - Mining and Geological Exploration. We are producing almost a third of all diamonds in the world, and we hope that this year the forum participants will help us with their ideas and aspirations. We are waiting for unconventional ideas from the participants, we welcome a fresh look at the established processes. Now, during the industrial revolution, we are particularly interested in the rapid updating of production. To solve such problems, all large sites, including ALROSA, require new generation engineers who possess not only a serious technical knowledge base, but also practical skills to solve engineering problems using new technologies,” said Evgeny Goncharov at the opening of the Championship.
