On September 8th, the Ryazan governor Oleg Kovalev opened a TechnoNICOL plant for the production of new Russian heat insulation materials made of rough polyisocyanurate foams.
As Construction.ru was told by the company’s press office, the production capacity of the new line is 30m m2 a year. Project investment is 1.7 bln rubles. Deliveries will be made all over Russia and the CIS.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, Oleg Kovalev said, “It is an important event for the region. Another high tech enterprise with a large capacity has been created in the Ryazan region. Its full capacity having been achieved, its products will replace imports. The plant will also export material. A number of options within the program of the Ryazan region’s sustainable development will enable the plant to gain market outlets”.
In his turn, TechnoNICOL CEO Vladimir Markov said: “We have invested 1.7 bln rubles in the project. It is one of the biggest plants producing PIR insulation in the world. Its technological line is the most powerful in the CIS. It produces 60 m of product per minute, almost two times as much as a similar European plant. Thus the opening of the plant is a new page in the history of Ryazan and Russian industry”.
The Ryazan PIR-insulation plant is equipped with a unique processing line, having no analogs in Europe. The new plant has created 50 additional jobs in the region. The plant has a scientific laboratory to check the parameters of products and to develop unique solutions to meet quickly changing market needs.
A scientific research center is planned for the creation and development of polyurethane-based products.
To remind you, PIR-plates are very popular abroad, e.g in the US market the share of insulation material made from rough polyisocyanurates foams for the insulation of flat roofs is 76%. The total share for PIR in Europe is 25.4% and 40% in the flat roofs segment. The consumption of such products by European constructors is growing by 3% a year on average.
