SverdNIIkhimmash to Supply Reduction Gear to Kazakhstan

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, November 15, 2016. Rosatom’s SverdNIIkhimmash recently landed a contract for the supply of four reduction gear units to Kazakhstan-based Ulbinsky Metallurgical Plant in Ust-Kamenogorsk.

The units will come to replace the obsolete appliances at N 300B centrifugal units that SverdNIIkhimmash delivered to the plant more than three decades earlier. The reduction gear units are to arrive at the plant in December 2016; this was a 3.7m RUR deal.

In fact, SverdNIIkhimmash has supplied quite a few centrifuges to plants in the former USSR and today’s Russia since 1983.

‘This is a very important contract for the company that restores our ties with Kazakhstan’s leading nuclear fuel-manufacturing enterprise,’ says Arkadiy Foteyev, deputy head at one of SverdNIIkhimmash departments.

The company’s orders from abroad are vital, in economic terms, for both SverdNIIkhimmash in particular and Sverdlovsk Region in general. For one, the manufacturer shipped its heaters for Power-Generating Units 3 and 4 at Tianwan Nuclear Power Plant in China in July, thus selling over 30m RUR worth of goods and services.
