As part of construction of a combined high-octane gasoline production unit (CHOGPU), at Antipinsky Refinery, the main production asset of New Stream Group
, the general contractor TEHINZHSTROY Construction Company LLC assembled a special-purpose crawler crane. It will provide structural steel and piping erection work at heights inaccessible to other equipment and on the compact construction site.
The SKG-631 crawler crane will be used at the final stage of CHOGPU construction and will allow carrying out work on the last "floors" of AI-92 and AI-95 automobile gasolines production unit. The main feature of the special-purpose equipment is the ability to lift bulk cargo weighing more than 60 tons to heights of about 70 meters.
As was noted by Dmitry Mazurov, the President of New Stream Group, CHOGPU construction is actively gaining pace after the particularly severe winter of this year, when specialists had to not only solve the pressing issues of installing the multi-ton equipment within a compact area, but also brave the elements and abnormal colds. 'At the moment, we managed to complete the construction and installation operations (CIO) on the main technological equipment of the CHOGPU. On the whole, construction is completed by 85%, as early as in the third quarter of 2017, Antipinsky Refinery is planning to start commissioning of the unit,' said Dmitry Mazurov.
