Peat Company «Pelgorskoe» was founded in early 1950s. Exactly at that time in Tosnensky region of Leningradsky state peat mining started. Small village Pelgorskoye and narrow track railway was built by that time. At the beginning of 1960s company was upgraded with completely new technology facilities. In 1970s and 1980s company «Pelgorskoe» mined about 500 thousand tones of peat every year.
In 2001 «Pelgorskoe» was reorganized to company with limited responsibility «Pelgorskoe-M». At first production was lunched on facilities which already were in service. After that we started replacing of equipment and repairing narrow-gauge railway from mining place to processing facilities.
In 2005 2 millions Euros was invested. As market demanded new qualities for peat. New «VAPO» company equipment was bought. Exactly that equipment allows us to mine deeper laying fractions of peat. This equipment uses passive mills, that is why we can save very important initial peat qualities.
Also new peat processing production line was launched. We used equipment of Canadian company “Premier Tech”. Quality demands were increased. So, all processing control equipment also was replaced with new computer control systems. New processing and peat mixing lines were installed.
On present day our facility has four sub-units: mining unit, Greko-Ushakovskoye peat mining place with square of 1000 hectares, which is located only 18 kilometeres from main facility; railway unit which provides peat transportation from mining to facility; repairing workrooms and processing facilities. Modern equipment allows our company to produce high quality production, which can satisfy every demand of our customers.
