Under the contract, Volzhsky Pipe Plant and Chelyabinsk Pipe Plant, both part of TMK, will ship large-diameter high-strength pipes with external insulation coating.
This collaboration is part of the national Program for the Development of the Oil & Gas Industry of Turkmenistan till 2030 and the program to boost bilateral trade between Russia and Turkmenistan.
Denis Prikhodko, TMK’s Director of Sales, commented:
- Central Asia, where major energy projects are being stepped up, is a priority market for TMK
- As part of cooperation with Turkmenistan, TMK’s plants have been successfully supplying pipe and tubular products for many years to the fuel and energy sector, and the power industry of the country
- A new contract for the supply of high-tech products to Turkmengas, the state-owned company responsible for power generation, transmission and distribution, will promote the development of Turkmenistan’s energy infrastructure and expand its export potential
- We plan to fully deliver under the contract as early as 2021
3 Japanese-made gas turbines with a total design capacity of 432 MW will be installed at the power plant, which is set to become the main source of electricity supply from Turkmenistan to neighboring Afghanistan.
