October 15, 2018 OKB “Spetstyazhproekt” completed a large-scale project for the transportation of equipment for LLC “Afipsky Refinery”.  The company delivered 56 pieces of equipment with a total weight of more than 6000 tons to the construction site of the refinery by sea, river and road transport.  The maximum load weight reached 735 tons, and the length – 60 meters.

They brought equipment from Italy, Spain, Holland, Germany, India and Thailand along the Black and Azov Seas, the Kuban and Ubin rivers.

The automotive part of the transportation of goods began from a specialized pier, built by the company’s employees in Achuev.

For the project “Afipsky Refinery” in the Group of Companies “Spetstyazhavtotrans” we have developed and manufactured a light, mobile system of stepped lifting with a lifting capacity of 800 tons.

Also, within the framework of the equipment delivery project, the dams of the reservoir were strengthened, specialized moorings and storage platforms were built, as well as a bridge over the Ubin River.

The equipment was transported along technological roads constructed by the company’s specialists in the Republic of Adygea and the Krasnodar Territory.  Then the cargoes followed the Afipsky-Kovalenko road, crossed the Ubin river along a specially designed bridge capable of skipping road trains weighing up to 1,500 tons and found themselves on the territory of the TsRPPK Afipsky NP3.  From here, the specialists had to transport the equipment through the railway and the A146 federal highway to unload them at the plant’s construction site.

Due to the impressive dimensions, the transportation of goods by road has required a significant amount of work to disable air crossings, to strengthen and build new technological roads in the Republic of Adygea and the Krasnodar Territory.

Work on the project began in 2016.  During this time, the guys really loved the Krasnodar region.

“We’re here like home,” they joke.

Employees of the Spetstyazhproekt OKB reconstructed social facilities in the Republic of Adygea and the Krasnodar Territory.  So, for example, in the village of Achuevo, experts put in order the territory of the memory complex to the wars that died during the Great Patriotic War and “reanimated” the bus stop, which had fallen into decay.

This is not all that has been done for the small village of Achuevo.

– People in the village live mainly due to fishing, but in order for the fish to come from the sea into the river, it is necessary to periodically clean the bar.  Naturally, such work is carried out once every two years as an anti-flood measure, but this is not enough for the fishing industry to flourish.  Therefore, unscheduled dredging works carried out by us are a real holiday for Achuevtsev, – said Vadim Orlov, Director of Equipment Transportation and Installation Projects

And in the “Kuban Institute of Sturgeon” at the request of the company, the sturgeon fry were grown.  1571 relict fish released into the Sea of ​​Azov.

The management of the Group of Companies “Spetstyazhavtotrans” thanks for the work done and congratulates all the staff on the successful completion of the transportation project for LLC “Afipsky Refinery”.
