Rimera Finalizes Shipments of Transmission Pipeline Equipment for SIBUR under First Major Contract

MSA plant, a Czech asset of Rimera Group, is continuing a successful series of valve shipments to Russia's biggest petrochemical company, SIBUR. The valves will be used in building a Western Siberian product pipeline to stretch for over 1,100 kilometers from Purovsk Condensate Refinery to Tobolsk-Neftekhim.
"As part of this first order that a Rimera plant has been awarded by this client, MSA is shipping a batch of 571 ball valves 2" to 28" in diameter, PN 100, 63. It will also include five fittings. It is a fairly large order by market standards. By the end of this month, MSA will manufacture a third and last batch of valves that will be shipped all the way to Western Siberia", says MSA Executive Director Vladimir Kononov.
Equipment manufactured by the Czech plant of Rimera is unique in many ways. The plant team custom-designed ball valves for underground installation with a purpose-built protective shield to protect the valves against mechanical damage. It is the first time that the Czech engineers have designed a product like this.
Russia is the biggest market for Rimera companies. Interim results show that this year's shipments to Russian consumers have exceeded 1 billion rubles.
In 2012, Chelyabinsk Pipe Rolling Plant (ChTPZ) Group and SIBUR signed a long-term contract for comprehensive deliveries of pipes with a three-ply outer polyethylene protective coating to be used in construction of the product pipeline to connect Purovsk Condensate Refinery and Tobolsk-Neftekhim. Products are shipped in several batches, with the order to be filled completely by the end of 2013.
