ChelPipe Group has delivered the first batch of pipes for the launch complex of the Vostochny Cosmodrome
ChelPipe Warehouse complex (part of the ChelPipe Group) delivered the first 130 tons of seamless pipes to TYAZHMASH JSC. Gas-lift pipes with a diameter of 426 mm and a wall thickness of 25 mm will be used for the construction of a tower and a set of lifting equipment for the launch complex of the Vostochny Cosmodrome.
Considering the operating conditions, the pipes are subject to increased additional requirements. In particular, white metallurgists ensured high plasticity (toughness) of the metal products, 100% surface quality and absolutely accurate length - 7.5 meters
- This order for pipes with high added value is very important for the ChelPipe Group. White metallurgists with all responsibility approached its implementation and coped with the deadlines. The products received positive evaluation from the customer. The ChelPipe Group will ship additional 170 tons of gas-lift pipes to TYAZHMASH JSC already before the end of August, - says Alexei Smirnov, Director of ChelPipe Warehouse complex.
