Gas collecting main operator, Coke shop
All gas coming from sintered coal charge moves along the flues. Gas collecting main operators are the ones who control this process. The work is not easy. The gas temperature is 600-800 degrees. In summer, when the air temperature is also quite high, gas collecting main operators start work at 6 am, to get the benefit of the coolest time of the day.
The work is hard, but also interesting, - says Andrey. - I am a fourth-year student of Altai State Technical University, studying "Power and Electrical Engineering". I plan to go to graduate school and get a degree in Chemistry. I want to develop in this area. I can say that working at the plant, I've understood what it means to be confident in the future. I am very grateful to Altai-Koks for so many social programmes! For our small town of Zarinsk it's great that there is an opportunity to show what you're made of in various projects and competitions.
Andrey is a finalist of "Young Leader - 2015” contest. He is actively involved in the company's youth council.
