Nikopol Metallurgical Plant for the production of stainless pipes Centravis Production Ukraine (Centravis Production Ukraine), a member of the Centravis Ltd. holding, after a large-scale shelling of Ukrainian energy infrastructure by Russian missiles, was briefly stopped due to a lack of electricity.
At the moment, as Chief Sales Officer (CSO) Artem Atanasov said in a letter to customers, Centravis production continues to operate.
“On the day of the attack, we had a temporary power outage. Now the power supply is being restored, and we have launched our processing sections in both workshops, so most of the November orders will be fulfilled,” the manager stated.
According to him, the government asked the company to reduce the load on the Ukrainian energy system.
At the same time, despite this, today we have enough electricity, and in the current situation, critical infrastructure facilities should be serviced first. That is why we decided to stop our pressing line for the planned overhaul on November 25,” explained the sales director.
He also added that the company's logistics team constantly monitors the safe ways of delivering finished products. Sales offices around the world in Essen, Milan, Krakow, Lugano, Houston and Dubai are ready for customer requests.
