Mechel PAO one of the leading Russian mining and metals companies, launching a new facility for output of import-substituting multi-strand steel ropes at Beloretsk Metallurgical Plant. Equipment produced by Germany’s Sket Verseilmaschinenbau GmbH enables stranding 6-12 strand ropes up to 90 mm in diameter, while an extruder made by Austria’s Rosendahl may coat with polymer both separate strands and the rope as a whole. Plastic protects the ropes from external and internal abrasions, decreases the impact of impact loading and contact stress, shields them from aggressive environments and difficult climatic conditions and ensures a longer life for both the rope and other expensive parts. Polymer-coated ropes will replace their imported counterparts in mining and oil industries as well as engineering, bridge construction and shipbuilding.

Beloretsk Metallurgical Plant began implementing the project on producing import-substituting ropes in 2015. The project cost a total of some 511 million rubles. In 2016, the plant was granted a concessionary loan from Russia’s Industrial Development Fund for over 255 million rubles. The plant supplied the remaining half of required funding. In 2017 the project was listed among the Republic of Bashkortostan’s priority projects.

The facility’s annual capacity is 15,000 tonnes. Its launch has created 68 new highly productive jobs.
