Mechel Group’s sales network Mechel Service is supplying steel rolls for construction of infectious disease hospitals designed to fight coronavirus all over Russia.
As part of the government’s plan to prevent the spread of coronavirus, rapidly erectable medical centers designed for fighting infectious diseases are being built. Construction works are held round the clock.
Russia’s Defense Ministry is speeding up construction of 16 medical centers. Mechel Service is supplying rolled products for construction of the Defense Ministry’s multifunctional medical centers in Moscow region’s Odintsovo, Volgograd and Orenburg region. Steel rolls are also supplied for construction of hospitals in Novosibirsk and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Supplies mainly include beams, rebar and flats produced by Mechel Group’s Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant.
Mechel Service also provides rolls for construction of an infectious disease hospital in Moscow’s Voronovo town, which will become an addition to the ward in Kommunarka and the infectious disease hospital No. 1. Earlier, the company supplied more than 5,000 tons of rebar for construction of the medical center in Kommunarka, which is currently Moscow’s key medical facility for coronavirus patients.
“Today we face the task of providing enough steel rolls for construction of infectious disease centers as quickly as possible. We do everything in our power to make these supplies in the shortest possible time,” Mechel PAO’s Chief Executive Officer Oleg Korzhov commented. (Mechel/Ukrainian metal)
