Uralcryomash has secured a supply deal, for the transportation and storage of liquid oxygen, nitrogen, argon, with the Federal Space Agency of the Russian Federation.
Twenty such tank cars will be produced and delivered to launch site “Vostochny” according to the contract with ROSCOSMOS (Federal Space agency of the Russian Federation). The first batch of 10 tanks will be shipped to the customer by November 30th 2014. The second batch is planned to be shipped in during the first half of 2015.
At present Uralcryomash is executing two large state contracts. The order load for such equipment is very significant and substantial for the cryogenic engineers of Nizhny Tagil. For the work scope these two orders take 25-30% of the whole production department’s time.
The company will also manufacture and deliver the equipment to launch site “Vostochny”. The first batch of the vessel equipment is for storage of kerosene and naphthyl - which was manufactured and shipped in January-February 2014. It is already installed at the launch site. The next stage by contract includes production of the valve cabinets together with the electrical equipment, instruments and controls, and pneumatic equipment. The deadline for completion is May 2015.
The shipment of the next product consignment is planned for November 2014. Supervising installation and commissioning will be also performed by the Nizhny Tagil specialists.
Uralcryomash has big plans for the future as well. Construction of the second stage at the launch site ‘Vostochny’, in which Uralcryomash will take an active part, is under discussion. Operations will cover production of the vessel equipment, storage and propellant-feed systems.
