A Big Plant For Big Details

Posted on May 12, 2011 by team

There is a metal plant in Saint-Petersburg that produces details for hydropower and nuclear power stations. That is why its machine tools are simply huge with the size of a small house, as are the parts they make.

The plant occupies the enormous territory with endless workshops.
