Conversion & New Productions

At present due to the sharp decrease of the volume of defense orders, Votkinsk Plant has considerably increased its civil production output.

As a result new production plants were created - "Metalurg", "Machine-Building", "Nefteselmash" and "Tool Production"

The main directions of the conversion are: oil and gas machine-building, production of isothermal and refrigerator containers, refrigerator installations - stationary and mobile, metal-cutting machines and tools.

The largest share of the developing productions belongs to the oil and gas equipment. The Plant produces various oil field equipment:
  • pumps and pump units - sectional and centrifugal for injecting water
  • pumps - centrifugal, immersed, modular
  • wrenches - mechanical and automated with electric and hydraulic drives for underground repairs of oil and gas wells
  • pipe wrenches
  • elevators
  • swivels
  • packers
  • gates and wedge gate valves
  • thermocouple valves
  • pressure regulators
  • three-way gas cocks
  • air pressure regulators
  • spare parts for oil field equipment
Votkinsk Plant set up 4 joint ventures with companies from USA and Canada. These companies manufacture drill bits with diamonds, cleaning systems for drilling fluids, steam generators with cleaning systems, drilling pumps, mobile drilling complexes and other oil field equipment.

The share of the civil production of the Plant in 1996 was 38% of the total and that of the oil and gas equipment alone - 11.5%.
The overall increase of the production in 1996 was 112% compared to 1995.
The increase planned for 1997 is 120-121%.
The growth of the oil and gas production volume in 1996 was equal to 134% and the increase planned for 1997 is 137%.
