Snowmelter facility in Minsk: photos

The only snow melting facility in Belarus is now working 24/7, due to changing weather and large amounts of snow. The program Big City shows how the station serves three out of the nine districts of Minsk.

During one snowy day alone, the machine set a new record, melting about 9,000 cubic meters of snow. This is how much snow more than 700 MAZ trucks can carry.

Alexander Kudritsky, Deputy Chief of Production, MinskVodokanal service:
We unload snow into separators and crushers. The snow mass is crushed and sent further into the heating chamber. Snow melts there. On average we take 500-600 vehicles a day at this stage.
