TMK ships pipe for 2018 World Cup stadiums

TMK has recently shipped a batch of seamless pipe for the construction of Mordovia Arena stadium in Saransk, which will host the 2018 FIFA World Cup matches. The contractor for the new stadium will receive 210 tonnes of 219 mm and 426 mm S440 grade steel seamless pipe.

Starting from 2014, the Company has supplied its products to 2018 World Cup stadiums. Specifically for use in stadium metal structures, Volzhsky Pipe Plant has launched production of seamless pipe made of high-strength S440 grade stainless steel. Seversky Tube Works, which is also part of TMK, supplied galvanised pipe for the outer steel frame of Spartak Stadium (now Otkritie Arena) in Moscow, which was inaugurated in 2015. The impact resistant seamless pipe made of 09G2S grade steel was used in the retractable roof of Saint Petersburg Stadium (Zenit Arena).

Overall, during the last three years, TMK has shipped over 7 thousand tonnes of pipe to 2018 World Cup stadiums, with seamless pipe for high-strength steel frames accounting for 80% of the supplies.
