In October 2013 our Company replaced technological equipment at the production site of ZAO Karabashmed (Karabash, Chelyabinskaya region).
The first stage of works included dismantling (removing from the foundation and shifting to a loading site) of an old 344-tonne holding furnace АПМ-1-140. The second stage consisted of shifting a rotary holding furnace KUMERA (Finland) from the pre-assembly and lining site (to a distance of about 80 m) and setting it on a foundation (a special support roller construction). Its weight at the moment of installation was equal to 516 tonnes, which is a record in terms of installation of one unit in the history of our Company existence.
All the works were accomplished within the prescribed time limits. Unique engineering solutions applied during the work enabled the Client to fulfill repair furnace replacement operations in the shortest possible time.
