25 February 2020, Brandenburg, Griesen: A bucket wheel excavator removes overburden in the Jänschwalde opencast lignite mine of LEAG (Lausitz Energie Bergbau AG). In the Jänschwalde open-cast mine, lignite is dredged again. Lignite production at the Jänschwalde open-cast mine began again on Tuesday after a stop for months due to a lack of an environmental impact assessment. With the start of the early shift at 06.00 o'clock, the opencast mine was completely reopened, according to a spokesman for the operator LEAG. The pit will then work in normal operation again. According to LEAG, more than 600 employees work there in three shifts. DPA / LEHTIKUVA / PATRICK PLEUL
