"Turbogaz" resumes production capacity (PHOTOS)
This is the second year the company has been implementing the project of reconstruction and modernization of the foundry. It includes the overhaul of the melting equipment and purchase of new, high-performance molding lines for the manufacture of a wide range of steel and iron casting.
The main smelting department with five huge furnaces - each with a capacity of 6 tons of metal - resumes its work after 14 years of forced inactivity.
Currently, the first of the large melting furnaces in the shop has already been repaired. Now this induction furnace produces 6 tons of iron every three hours.
Only during 2013, 54 new jobs have been created here.
The company Director Mykhailo Kachur said that they teach young professionals and retrain workers for work in this department. For example, professionals who work directly with furnaces make 3.5 to 4.7 thousand hryvnias per month.
- The full recovery of the plant, including mixing stations and molding lines will increase production capacity to 70 million hryvnias of marketable products per year. However, the foundry modernization program will continue - we plan to replace equipment and increase production - the director of the "Turbogaz" company Mykhailo Kachur shared their plans.
After the first phase of the project, the company additionally mastered the range of products for the automotive and railway industries.
