On 21 September 2023, during the COMMON FUTURE Ukrainian Reconstruction Congress in Poznań, the FAMUR segment, which is part of Grenevia, signed a letter of intent with JSW Capital Group companies and Komatsu.

The letter of intent is a declaration of cooperation between Famur, JSW companies and Komatsu on the Lubelska No. 1-2 mine construction project in Lubelsko. The aim of the project is to access and extract coal from those deposits. The cooperation will consist in particular in the exchange of information, knowledge and experience regarding geological, technical and legal conditions for individual or joint projects carried out by the signatories of the letter.

Komatsu is also a signatory to the letter.
“Rebuilding Ukraine after the war will not only be a challenge for the country’s authorities and its people, but will also require the involvement of a wide range of other countries. I am convinced that the international community and the involvement of individual companies is the right way to rebuild Ukraine in the fastest way. – comments Mirosław Bendzera, CEO of FAMUR SA. “Participation in the Lubelska mine project is a natural course of action for us. As part of the project, we can draw on our more than 100 years of experience in the industrial sector, including in the manufacture and supply of mining machinery. The important facts that create good prospects for the implementation of the project jointly with JSW are our competence and experience accumulated through previous cooperation”, he adds.
