Transneft PCD as a technical customer continues works as part of the project of construction of a high-voltage electric motors plant in Chelyabinsk Region.

At the present time all the initial construction works have been performed, including preparation of the site and installation of the foundation. The works on assembly of metal structures of the plant building are conducted: 5,348 thousand tons of the planned 6,686 thousand tons of metal structures have already been constructed. Half of the building of the future plant has already been assembled; assembly of utility rain communication lines is conducted, preparation to assembly of the cable route, water supply and heating supply is performed. Heating supply will be performed using infrared gas heating units.

Construction of the building’s contour (closing the walls with sandwich panels and finishing the roof works) is planned to be finished in March 2017.

In 2016 Transneft PCD as a technical customer started implementation of the project “Plant for Localization of Electric Motors Production in the Russian Federation in Chelyabinsk Region”. The project’s investor is Russian Electric Motors, JSC.

The facility is located in the territory of Stankomash industrial park. Due to the fact that steelmaking was located at the place of the future plant, the contractor initially dismantled the previous structures and replaced the man-made soils. As the result, about three hundred thousand tons of soil were removed from the site to a special-purpose ground and new soil was delivered.

The projects provides for construction of a plant for electric motors construction and an administrative and amenity building, with the total area of 24.6 and 3.2 thousand sq. m correspondingly, at the site with the area of 5.6 ha. Besides production shops, the plant territory will include utilities areas: mechanical and electrotechnical quality control laboratories, switchboard rooms of a testing laboratory and a shop, a cooling room, a fire pump room, a hydro-pneumatic equipment room, repair areas for electrical and mechanical equipment, a tool department. Besides, a testing centre will be constructed.

The future plant for high-voltage electric motors construction is an important part of Transneft’s implementation of activities on localization of manufacturing equipment production. Starting from 2018, the enterprise will secure a hundred percent localization of electric motors production for main and booster pump units for oil producing and oil processing industry in the Russian Federation, which will reduce dependence on foreign producers.
