Installation of the modern line instead of the obsolete equipment is a part of modernisation programme, started in 2007 to increase production efficiency and capacity. The installed equipment will produce solid-core panels of different size for panel construction. As a result, Zavod ZhBI-6 will be able to significantly improve the quality of products and increase its capacity by 20%, being able to produce the amount of reinforced concrete elements equivalent to 240 th sq. m of housing per year.
The new line will produce Euro’PA series - a popular product line of panel houses in the Moscow region. These houses are now under construction in the Istrinsky district (Novoye Nakhabino) and Balashikha in the Moscow region. Besides, they will be built in the Leninsky district, Reutov and Domodedovo. The new line will also produce reinforced concrete products of bigger size for solid ceilings and floors. Thanks to high flexibility of equipment the new line is able to produce the elements of different complexity and work in “just-in-time” mode.
