“Sevmash embarked on a large-scale re-equipment. With the support of the state, the production base of the enterprise is planned to be radically upgraded to 2020 of the year, ”the company’s website says.
According to the press service of the plant, re-equipment will help Sevmash to “timely fulfill the state defense order at a qualitatively new level and reduce production costs.”
It is noted that such re-equipment has not been carried out here since the 70-s of the last century. Moreover, within the framework of the already existing federal target programs, machine-building and pipe-processing productions were re-equipped, and crane facilities were partially replaced. There were high-performance universal machines, milling machining centers, new pipe bending machines. There is already a universal stand for testing products for reliability and compliance with vibration-noise characteristics.
“Sevmash will also improve logistics through the purchase of transport systems and replacement of crane equipment in the main industries. Design documentation is being developed for re-equipment of testing, testing, auxiliary and non-metal production, ”the company said.
As for plans for the near future, within the framework of the federal program for the development of civilian marine technology in 2013 and 2014, Sevmash plans to update the laboratory-test base and acoustic complex, to begin re-equipping the corps-welding production.
At the same time, Sevmash is preparing for the installation of the latest press bending, welding, gas cutting machines and equipment.
The plans also include the preparation of additional berths, expanding the technical capabilities of descenders and hydraulic structures.
"This requires large-scale tasks on the implementation of the state defense order," - summed up the company.
