UrBC, Yekaterinburg, February 20, 2016. Seversky Pipe Plant/STZ (a member enterprise of Pipe Metallurgical Company/TMK) used its new FQM unit to make the record-setting 41,000,000 kg of pipes in one month. Rosneft and Surgutneftegas were the key customer for this produce, TMK press service reports.

‘The January output has been the best since the day the unit was launched, and it was also above our target figures for the month. This modern weldless pipe-making facility with the projected capacity of 600,000,000 kg was installed at our Pipe-Rolling Department 1 in October 2014, and the output figures have been increasing every month,’ the press service says.

The plant also acquired a coating line to make sure pipes are protected against corrosion during transportation and storage. Thanks to the airless spraying technology, the 30-40 micron coating gets distributed very evenly all over the pipe surface at just one go, which makes it much more resistant than usual.

STZ also plans to introduce an additional production department, get two new cranes, and buy some containers for the mechanized warehouse. Also, the plant’s recently upgraded facilities will undergo warranty tests in February.
