On 1 February 2019, Director General of Transneft Siberia Viktor Bronnikov held a working meeting with Alexander Moor, the Governor of Tyumen Region, at the facilities of Tyumen Machinery and Repair Plant (TMRP).
Director General of Transneft Siberia informed the participants of the meeting about implementation of the Special Investment Contract (SPIC) for the establishment of an industrial manufacturing complex at Tyumen Machinery and Repair Plant. The contract was signed in June 2017 at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum between the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, the government of Tyumen Region and Transneft Siberia.
The expansion of TMRP’s manufacturing complex includes construction of a workshop for assembly and welding, a warehouse complex and infrastructure facilities. Construction and installation began in April 2018, the planned date of commissioning of the new complex is November 2019. The volume of investments is about 3 billion roubles.
The assembly and welding shop will be tooled up with modern high-tech equipment with computerised numerical control (a thermal sheet cutter, a laser rolled metal cutter, a press brake, a roller benders and a robotic welding complex).
“The new complex will allow to organise a full production cycle. In addition, the task of increasing labour productivity in metallic structures welding will be solved by installing two robotised complexes. The new manufacturing complex will also allow to create conditions for storage and shipment of finished products,” said Viktor Bronnikov, Director General of Transneft Siberia.
The Governor of Tyumen Region Alexander Moor highly appreciated the progress made on the implementation of the Special Investment Contract. “Transneft Siberia is a company that is serious about enhancing its operational efficiency and increasing social responsibility. Thus it’s very comfortable for the government of Tyumen Region to implement large joint projects. The mechanism of the Special Investment Contract is new to us. However, today, we are satisfied with the way it is being implemented,” he accented.
Batch production (treatment facilities, equipment for performing repairs in marshes and specialised equipment for operating pipeline transportation facilities) will begin in 2020. The planned output stands at 8,600 tonnes of metal structures per year.
The new manufacturing complex at TMRP is meant to ensure an increase in the volume of production of metal structures of guaranteed accuracy and quality.
The machinery and repair plant is one of the leading enterprises in the region. It produces equipment for the oil transportation industry: engineering products, non-standard metal structures and components for repair and maintenance of oil pumping equipment. From 2011 to 2017, the assembly and welding shop and the foundry section were revamped at TRMZ, open warehouses for rolled metal and storage of finished products were built, the paсking manufacturing section was reconstructed and an X-ray laboratory was built. Production of equipment for servicing oil trunk pipelines and wastewater treatment facilities’ equipment was mastered.
In 2018, revamping of the machining shop was completed, within which technological equipment was purchased and installed, including 16 high-tech machine tools with computerised numerical control. Foundry equipment was introduced, namely an oven with the capacity of up to 1,000 kg and the alpha set technology molding equipment.
TMRP has also launched the production of spare parts and components for main and booster pumps for pumping oil and petroleum products to satisfy the demand of the Transneft Oil Pumps plant in Chelyabinsk.
