Okskaya Sudoverf shipyard upgrades its equipment
As part of its modernization programme, JSC Okskaya Sudoverf (a company of UCL Holding) has acquired two КМ-120 milling machines with NC control having invested RUB 10.5 million.
Multi-purpose КМ-120 machines can be used for manufacturing of a wide range of components in different production areas including main production – processing of hull parts, tool-making — production of components for die and mold machines, mechanical repair – equipment repair and modernization. КМ-120 machines will let improve part feature accuracy and reduce the general production cycle including setting-up and part monitoring. Besides, one NC machine replaces several manually operated units. That will let minimize the fleet of machinery, which, in its turn, will result in energy cost reduction and operational process optimization.
The milling machines were put into operation in the end of September 2018 in the marine engineering workshop of Okskaya Sudoverf shipyard.
Okskaya Sudoverf Shipyard JSC is a modern shipbuilding enterprise and a subsidiary of VBTH division of UCL Holding specialising in the construction of oil tankers, medium-tonnage dry bulk carriers of mixed 'river-sea' sailing, containerships, special crafts and barges. In 2015, the Company became the second largest shipyard in Russia in terms of total tonnage of completed and delivered newbuildings.
