Moscow - Mosflowline one of the largest producers of foam polyurethane piping systems in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States, has signed a contract for the supply of piping systems for heat networks in Armenia.
These piping systems will be used in the construction of modern buildings in Armenia, according to the sources of the company. The representatives of the project claim that this is the first time that this type of piping system for thermal insulation has been used in Armenia.
"This step is very important for the company and its partners as it will let it become the only Russian company in the area of foam polyurethane piping systems that supplies its products to the five countries of the post-Soviet Union space (not including Russia)," the representatives of Mosflowline said.
The start of the construction works is scheduled for the beginning of 2014, so the supply of the foam polyurethane piping systems should take place until the end of the year.
During the initial stage of development of the project, representatives from the contracting organisation attended the several plants that produce pre-insulated pipes for thermal insulations in Russia. After a series of negotiations the experts selected Mosflowline as the main supplier. However, the certain cost of the agreement was not disclosed.
Mosflowline sees Armenia as very attractive for future supplies and considers it to be an important area for development in coming years.
CJS Mosflowline was formed in 1994 by JSC Mosingstroy and Flowline Alaska Russia Inc. with the support of the Moscow government. Currently the company is one of the leaders in polyurethane foam piping systems in the central regions of Russia, with a strong position in other regions of the country.
