Russia’s OJSC “Uralcryomash” has announced it has a new production program for three years, from 2015 to 2017, to construct a new production facility on the site of the former plant for the production of reinforced concrete products.
It is planned to manufacture 3,500 equipment units, including rail tank cars, tank containers for LPG and LNG shipment and storage, and stationary cryogenic vessels at the loction. The production site and site buildings will be built on the territory of the former plant for production of reinforced concrete products.
The building area for the new facility will fill an area of about 50,000m2 with a total number of staff (workers and maintenance people) expected to be about 400. In 2013 Uralcryomash acquired ownership of the property of the former reinforced concrete plant and its infrastructure.
The First Deputy Director General, Andrey Prosvirkin, notes, “The construction of a new production site is a new lease of life for the company, taking into consideration the current demand and need in the gas motor fuel market.”
“Construction of the new production site will allow for the increase the production volumes to meet demand. As a result, the volumes of total output and revenues will grow; there will be more social programs, and more workplaces. The old workshops will operate for production of prototype products.”
The production facility will consist of five aisles. The first two aisles will be used for production of cryogenic equipment, the third – for flatcars, the fourth – for production of the gas tank for transportation of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), model 15-588-01, which was certified in 2013, and the fifth aisle will be prepared for production of containers – models KTS and KTSH, which are in demand now as well.
Currently engineering studies, and a technical assignment for design of the new production site, have been made; projects of technical solutions for production of the above said products have been prepared as well. It is planned to conduct a tender for the general contractor, upon completion of which the construction activities will start.
