Sinarsky Pipe Plant launches production of a new type of boiler tube, commissioned by Krasny Kotelshchik Works to be used in Vietnam
Sinarsky Pipe Plant, a TMK subsidiary, has launched production of a new type of boiler tube, commissioned by Krasny Kotelshchik Taganrog Boiler-Making Works, one of Russia’s largest manufacturers of power engineering equipment.
The 31.75 mm cold-drawn tube with 6.10 mm walls, produced to ASME SA-210/SA-210M international standard, will be used in the manufacture of equipment for the Long Phu 1 thermal power project in Vietnam. Krasny Kotelshchik Works is involved in the construction of the 1,200 MW thermal power project as part of Power Machines, a Saint Petersburg-based power engineering company.
Sinarsky Pipe Plant won the supply contract in a tender process which involved 12 leading Russian and foreign boiler tube producers. The new production is based at Sinarsky Pipe Plant’s tube drawing shop No. 2 and uses billets produced by Seversky Tube Works, which is also part of TMK. The customer’s representatives attended the acceptance tests of finished products at the plant. In April–May 2016, the plant supplied the first batch of 250 tonnes of tubular products to the customer. Shipment of the second batch is scheduled for June.
“The successful fulfillment of a challenging order and our ASME certificates demonstrate the high level of our advanced production capabilities and are yet another confirmation of TMK’s competitive edge in the global market,” said Vyecheslav Popkov, Managing Director of Sinarsky Pipe Plant. “The expansion of cooperation with Krasny Kotelshchik Works through the thermal power plant project in Vietnam will reinforce our position as a reliable supplier of cold-drawn boiler tube”.
