This year Severstal will supply some 209 thousand tons of rolled metal to railroad car building companies of the United Wagon Company.
Cherepovets Iron and Steel Works has been supplying sheets and coils, as well as pipes and bars to the OVK enterprises. The metal is used to manufacture various parts of railroad cars.
Last year the works supplied a trial batch of 09G2S round billets with the diameter of 3900 mm.
“Previously such billets were welded of two parts. The new technology will decrease expenses and improve quality”, Severstal Management sales director Yevgeniy Chistyakov said.
In 2017 CherMK delivered 195 thousand tons of rolled metal to OVK enterprises. (Ukrainian metal)
