Fire in ore-dressing and processing enterprise “Velta” situated in Kirovpograd region took place on October 8, 2014 and turned out to be one of the major damages in Ukraine that year. The hotbed of fire was located in the gravity dressing department of Factory #1. It took three teams of fire fighters 5 hours to put out the fire and prevent it from spreading around the territory of the enterprise. In the course of the fire several production floor spaces were destroyed including ore - dressing shop and final ore - concentration shop. On June 23, 2015 “AXA Insurance” paid the last installment of the indemnification which totaled in UAH 26 mln. The payment was executed in two installments – UAH 12 mln and UAH 14 mln each.
Mr. Brodsky, the CEO at “Velta” stated: “After the fire the enterprise has been carrying out its regular operations on Factory #2. Having received the full indemnification from “AXA Insurance”, we began to rebuild the destroyed facilities. In order to restore the full capacity of Velta provided by both factories we still need to receive indemnification from the second insurance company carrying the policy for the bigger part of our enterprise property. As of today, the process is being dragged on, so we still have a lot to do”
