NLMK Supplies Raw Materials for Moscow’s Central Ring Road
NLMK Lipetsk, an NLMK Group company, a Metal-Expo regular exhibitor, supplied 2 million tonnes of slag crushed stone to DSK Avtoban for building the fourth section of Moscow’s Central Ring Road that opened on 28 December 2020.
NLMK Lipetsk supplied a total of 4.5 million tonnes of raw materials for the third and fourth sections of the road. NLMK Lipetsk’s convenient location and advanced crushing equipment have enabled it to provide year-round supplies for the construction project over the course of three years.
Crushed stone made from blast furnace slag has similar strength characteristics to those of natural crushed rock. Maintaining warehouse stocks of the material enables prompt and regular supplies to construction projects. In addition, blast furnace slag is a safe man-made raw material that helps conserve natural resources.
Ilya Guschin, NLMK Group Vice President, Sales, said: “NLMK Lipetsk has custom-developed a BF slag-based mix especially for DSK Avtoban’s road basecourse installation technology. Our company plans to actively pursue collaborations in road construction.”
