OMK Delivers Safety Pipeline Valves to Gazprom in Yamal
The United Metallurgical Company OMK has supplied nearly 300 units of safety pipeline valves to PJSC Gazprom's facilities located in Yamal. The products were manufactured at the OMK Armstal business unit Blagoveshchensk Valve Plant JSC in Republic of Bashkortostan. The supplied valves, according to the customer's requirements, are designed for operation in permafrost conditions: temperature load up to minus 50 degree Celsius and constant high humidity, as well as for high working pressure parameters of up to 10 MPa. For their manufacture, the technologists of the Blagoveshchensk plant OMK, together with the specialists of the specialized research institute, promptly developed a special steel grade capable of withstanding the specified loads.
Taking into account the complete production cycle of BAZ, from design to complex logistics, the contract was completed in the shortest possible time of one month. The valves delivered to Yamal took their place and allowed Gazprom to complete the project on time.
