The Novotroitsk Ural Steel Works (part of the Metalloinvest company) has manufactured sheet products for the production of metal structures for the construction of an enrichment plant at the Udokan copper deposit. The project for the construction of the Udokan mining and metallurgical plant and the development of the deposit is being implemented by the Baikal Mining Company.
More than 11 thousand tons of heavy-plate products of construction steel grades C255, C245, C345, C355, C390, С440 were supplied to the Chelyabinsk and Nizhniy Tagil plants of metal structures, Belenergomash-BZEM, as well as to the enterprises of the Soyuzlegkonstruktsiya company - Kulebaksky ZMK and Shadrinsky ZOK. With each of these producers Novotroitsk metallurgists have long-standing partnerships. The metal structures produced at these plants will be supplied to the north of Transbaikalia for the construction of buildings for the future mining and metallurgical plant Udokan.
The reliability of Ural Steel rolled steel has been confirmed by multi-stage verification, thermal and mechanical tests. High quality of products, reliability and comprehensive nature of supplies allow Metalloinvest to actively participate in the implementation of major infrastructure projects.
Novotroitsk rolled metal from structural steel grades was used in the construction of skyscrapers of the Moscow City business center, Lakhta Center in St. Petersburg, the exhibition center "Yekaterinburg-Expo", the terminal of the airport "Vnukovo", the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow, the campus of the Far Eastern Federal University, the shopping center "Okhotny Ryad" in Moscow, the stadiums of the 2018 FIFA World Cup and Olympic facilities in Sochi .For reference:
