RusHydro Group plant in Khabarovsk cleared to make equipment for power plants

KHABAROVSK. July 14 (Interfax) - The Repair and Machine Plant of the Khabarovsk Repair and Assembly Company (KhRMK), a subsidiary of RusHydro , has received a certificate of compliance with the requirements of Eurasian Economic Union technical regulations (Customs Union technical regulations) that allows it to manufacture equipment for power facilities, KhRMK's press service reported.

"Considering the current situation with the shortage of equipment due to imposed sanctions this year, we are increasingly thinking about our own production. This is why a decision was made on the need to obtain this permit. Now we are the only ones in the Far East who not only have the right to manufacture the necessary product, but also both the technical and human resources for this," KhRMK CEO Alexander Katenev said.

The certificate allows the plant to make equipment that operates under heat and for repairs of core equipment at the power plants of the Far East Generating Company and other RusHydro Group companies.

The plant has already received orders from RusHydro subsidiaries in the Far East for water economizers, furnace wall tubes, ceiling superheaters, superheater sections and coils.

The plant sate idle in past years due to a lack of orders from power companies, with most of its production facilities mothballed, but now it is implementing a development program, purchasing and launching new equipment, the company said.

KhRMK is owned by Far East Energy Company , a division of RusHydro that supplies power to the largest regions in the Far East. KhRMK reported a net profit of 1.8 million rubles last year on sales of 3.2 billion rubles.
