Mechel Steel Used to Build Moscow Metro’s New Stations
Mechel Group’s steel trading company Mechel Service, a Metal-Expo regular exhibitor has supplied Moscow Metro with over 4,000 tonnes of steel rolls since the beginning of this year. Most of those supplies, such as rebar, rolled flats and beams, were produced by Mechel Group’s Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant.
Supplies to Moscow Metro also include hardware, sections and strips. Cold-formed rebar B500 is used to make tubings, part of circular tunnel lining. The steel products are supplied to Tonnel stroy komplekt AO, a major contractor in charge of constructing new lines of Moscow’s underground. Mechel’s steel is used in building six stations of the Bolshaya Koltsevaya (Big Circle) line’s northwestern section. Those include Elektrozavodskaya, Sokolniki, Rizhskaya, Maryina Roscha, 800th Anniversary of Moscow Street and Lianozovo.
