ММК showcases its shipbuilding steel potential at NEVA 2021 forum
At the forum, MMK, one of the leading suppliers for the shipbuilding industry in Russia, has a stand showcasing the company’s potential in shipbuilding steel production. MMK accounts for up to half of all supplies in this segment, and shipment volumes in recent years have reached 100,000 tonnes. MMK's main consumers are companies within the United Shipbuilding Corporation.
MMK's shipbuilding capabilities received a boost after the commissioning of plate Mill 5000 in 2009, which is capable of producing high-quality shipbuilding steel for various types of vessels. The steel produced by Mill 5000 is certified by Bureau Veritas (France), Russian Maritime Register of Shipping, Russian River Register, ABS (American Bureau of Shipping), Lloyd Register and Norway’s classification society Det Norske Veritas. In addition, MMK continually works to master new technologies and the production of new steel grades for shipbuilding. Notably, we are currently developing technology for the production of high-strength shipbuilding steel for Arctic structures with operating temperatures as low as -50˚C, used without restrictions for icebreaking ships, icebreakers and offshore structures.
