UrBC, Yekaterinburg, September 18, 2018. EVRAZ’s Steel Dynasties Exhibition is now open in the park next to Nizhniy Tagil Mining & Metallurgical School, EVRAZ Holding’s press service reports.

The exhibition presents photographic histories of metallurgists’ and miners’ families who worked at EVRAZ member enterprises in Siberia and the Urals for several generations in a row. The solemn opening ceremony was attended by EVRAZ Nizhniy Tagil Integrated Metallurgical Works (NTMK) and EVRAZ Kachkanar Ore Mining & Processing Enterprise (KGOK) Managing Director Alexei Kushnarev.

There are thirty-two photographs featured at the exhibition. NTMK is represented by four families working at the plant’s converter, blast furnace, beam-rolling, and electric repairs departments. Together, they have an accumulated work record of 1,000 years.

‘We have more than three hundred metallurgical dynasties working at NTMK at the moment. I am truly happy to see the younger generations following in their parents’ footsteps and coming to work at the plant; the metallurgical skills thus get transferred from father to son. It would be great to see the grandchildren choosing the plant as their career,’ the Managing Director Alexei Kushnarev says.

Similar exhibitions are now open in Kachkanar, Novokuznetsk, and Mezhdurechensk. The photo chronicles were created by photographer Pavel Markelov.
