    TMK tests new heat treatment line at Volzhsky plant
    9/5/2008
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
        TMKs subsidiary in the Volgograd Region Volzhsky Pipe Plant has successfully tested Italian made equipment installed as part of a new heat treatment line.

    The new heat treatment line is to be commissioned in September 2008 and will increase TMKs heat treatment capacity by 340,000 tonnes per year. The new line will treat seamless pipes for use in the oil and gas, and power generation industries.

    Heat treatment modifies the mechanical characteristics of the pipes by altering the structure of the steel or alloy, effectively enhancing customer value as treated pipes can meet the requirements associated with todays demanding operating environments. These high added value products can command a price mark up of up to 30%.

    As part of TMKs Strategic Investment Program, a new heat treatment line was put into operation at Sinarsky Pipe Plant earlier this year and another will be brought on line at Tagmet in September. Each of these lines has the capacity to treat 200 thousand tonnes of pipes per year. By the end of 2008, when the new lines are up and running, TMKs heat treatment capacities in Russia will exceed 1.4 million tonnes and further investments will bring capacity to 1.8 million tonnes in 2010.

    In addition to the heat treatment line, a new 200,000 tonne capacity finishing line for casing pipes will be added to Volzhsky Pipe Plants TPC-3 rolling shop. Equipment suppliers included German companies ITWH and EMAG and US-based Bronx.

    The TPC-3 pipe rolling shop will undergo further upgrading with the addition of a new casing coupling phosphatising line before year end. Hot rolling equipment will also be upgraded and modified to permit the use of round billets, allowing the shops capacity to be increased to 720,000 tonnes of pipes per year by 2009.
