Purpose of the Environmental and Social Impact Assessments
The proposed project consists of debt financing to Pervouralsk New Pipe Plant (PNTZ, part of CHTPZ Group) located in Pervouralsk, Sverdlovsk Region, to build a steel mini-mill with design capacity of 950,000 tons per year to produce billets for seamless pipes.
This investment will allow CHTPZ Group to achieve vertical integration in seamless pipe segment, making it almost self-sufficient in billets for seamless pipe production. The project will replace CHTPZ Group’s outdated open hearth furnaces currently in operation at CHTPZ Group’s Chelyabinsk Tube Rolling Plant in Chelyabinsk.
The loan will also finance significant investments in energy efficiency improvements for both facilities of the Group, in Chelyabinsk and Pervouralsk, identified during energy audit commissioned by the Bank.
The new plant has been designed to meet Russian Federation and European Union Environmental Standards.
There is a project summary document available for this project.
