Bogdanka, 15 January 2019




LW Bogdanka, the technological leader of Polish hard coal mining sector and a member of the Enea Group, received an award in the “Innovation” category in the Mining Success of the Year Competition, organised by the Mining Chamber of Industry and Commerce. The awards ceremony took place on 14 January 2019 during the New Year’s Mining Concert at the Silesian Philharmonic in Katowice.

The Mining Chamber of Industry and Commerce awarded Bogdanka for its innovative technology for drilling in mining excavations. Thanks to this new technology, in June 2018 the Company built 820 running meters of top gallery 2/IV/389 in one month, setting a new monthly record for progress in drilling in mining excavations (the last record was set in April 2005). This feat was possible, among other things, thanks to the implementation of innovative organisational solutions supporting the work progress, and the extension of the belt conveyor route to 100 meters, as well as the implementation of a self-propelled double boom bolting machine (SWKB) directly behind the roadheader, but before the construction of the bottom beams.

“We would like to thank the Mining Chamber of Industry and Commerce for this award, as well as for the recognition of work done by our personnel of the GRP-5 Division at Bogdanka, who were the executors of this record-breaking top gallery. It is thanks to the engagement of our employees as well as the continuous implementations and improvements of technical innovations that LW Bogdanka can achieve great production results,” said Artur Wasil, President of the Management Board of LW Bogdanka S.A.


The Mining Success of the Year Competition is carried out in three categories - “Innovation,” “Ecology,” and “Personality of the Year.” The purpose of the competition is the promotion and popularisation of innovation projects as well as the growth of Polish underground mining, and creating a positive image of the mining sector.
