The certificate of conformance to the requirements of Customs Union Regulations On the Safety of Pressure Equipment applies to components, fittings, and assemblies of steam and hot water pipelines manufactured by Pipe Bends Plant to Technical Specifications TU 3113-033-74238272-2012. The certificate has been issued by the certification authority All-Russia Research Institute of Standardization and Certification in Mechanical Engineering (VNIINMASH) following a comprehensive onsite audit of production facilities of Rimera's plant, which included hydraulic testing of test specimens of products in the presence of VNIINMASH experts.
“Speaking of our key customers in the neighboring countries, they are Belarusian and Kazakh companies, such as Naftan, Grodno Azot, Minskenergo, and Central Asian Electric Power Corporation,” says Pipe Bends Plant Executive Director Leonid Malamud, adding: “Ongoing shipments of fittings to these customers are regulated by special permits, and since August 2015 all exports will be subject to mandatory certification in the standardization system of the Customs Union.”
Another Rimera Group plant, Izhneftemash, has obtained six declarations of product conformance, including three declarations received in 2014. The plant received its most recent declaration of conformance in May of this year for a mobile drive for a sucker rod pump.
Overall, Rimera Group is stepping up shipments to markets of Customs Union member states. In the last five years alone, revenue from product shipments by Rimera Group companies to customers in Belarus and Kazakhstan has grown by more than 2.5 times. Early next year, Rimera experts are planning to complete the same set of formalities in order to obtain the relevant Customs Union certificates for components of oil and gas pipelines and petrochemical product pipelines.
