In a year the Lipetsk-based Svobodniy Sokol will start producing pipes with the diameter of 1200 mm. The high-quality pig iron pipes will be used to construct main water and sewer pipelines in Russian regions and abroad.
“We’re preparing to conclude a contract on the delivery of new pipe-making equipment with a company from Germany or from China and start assembling it this year. The commissioning is scheduled for 2019”, the company new technologies director Alexander Minchenkov said.
The machinery valued at 150 million rubles will be incorporated into the existing line of the pipe shop. The capacity will be 36 thousand tons of pipes per year. (Ukrainian metal)
