Viktor Pinchuk's enterprise began melting 14 new steel grades for pipe production and producing 5 new items of transport assortment.
Among the new products is steel with high purity of metal for railway wheels of passenger high-speed trains. Interpipe NTZ has already shipped such products to Germany, the national railway operator Deutsche Bahn Personenverkehr. In addition, ER7 steel was delivered to Brazil with sulfur alloying and a special out-of-furnace treatment mode according to the individual requirements of MWL Brasil.
“High-quality steel is one of the main factors in the successful promotion of premium pipe and railroad products in foreign markets. This is a strategic advantage of Interpipe, because we can make the necessary metal ourselves in the shortest possible time according to the requirements of our clients, ”said Interpipe.
In addition to the production of steel for the production of pipes and wheels to Interpipe customers, the plant also ships steel to external customers. For example, last year "Interpipe Steel" mastered the production of billets from steel P22 alloyed with chromium for the Romanian ArcelorMittal Tubular Products Roman, Romania and the production of steel grade 13G2FB, which has increased corrosion resistance in an aggressive hydrogen sulfide environment, for ADNOC Group - the National Oil Company of Abu- Dhabi.
