Among all three elevators of Alebor Group of Companies Khrystynivke Grain-Collecting Station is developing the most intensively. Our team visited the elevator on 21 April. During our first visit driving of piles was in process, new scales were set up and reinforcement concrete at silo basement galleries was built at the construction site. Under one of the silo bins the foundation was poured with concrete. The excavation for new laboratory was ready.
The construction has made significant progress during a month. All the piles are driven. Some of them will be cut; other will be covered, as the construction site surface is not even. The foundation for silo basement galleries is poured. The first silo mounting is started and walls of laboratory are partly errected.

At Khrystynivske Grain-Collecting Station right in the process of construction works it was decided to make a slight deviation from the project. The transverse basement gallery which will be used for emptying of all three silos, will be moved nearer to the silo bins. This will be done with the purpose to expand the traffic way and increase maneuverability of trucks.
We are going to move the pillars supporting the upper gallery depthward. The gallery itself will be not on the side of the silos, but closer to their center. Such changes were agreed with projecting engineers. Also we had negotiations with KMZ Industries as for the amendment of length of some of conveyors. The plant has adopted our recommendations. All the changes are reflected in the project, the installation staff is working now, — Oleksiy Tsurkan says.
