The company decided to stop the pressing line for planned overhaul to reduce electricity consumption

Centravis, one of Europe’s largest suppliers of stainless steel pipes, has reduced production capacity to decrease the load on Ukraine’s energy system, which has been severely damaged by Russian troops’ shelling. This is stated in the letter for customers, posted on the company’s official website.

As a result of the last large-scale shelling of critical infrastructure by the aggressor, the company’s work was suspended due to a lack of electricity, but now production has resumed in a reduced mode.

“During the day of the attack, we had temporary power outage. Now the electricity supply is resuming, and we launched our finishing areas in both shops, so the most orders of November will be fulfilled,” said the sales director Artem Atanasov.

According to him, the authorities asked the company to reduce the load on the energy system of Ukraine. As of November 25, 2022, the company had enough electricity, so it should be provided to critical infrastructure facilities first.

“That is why we have decided to stop our pressing line on planned major overhaul on the 25th of November,” added the sales director.

As GMK Center reported earlier, Centravis intends to expand its production in the near future. After the ADIPEC conference in Abu Dhabi, the company notes the interest of world leaders in Ukrainian pipe products.

Also, in 2021, the company’s production volume was 19.43 thousand tons compared to 19.05 thousand tons in 2020. In January-May 2022, Centravis produced 5.5 thousand tons of products, which is 25.7% less than in the same period of 2021.
