The MKS-5000 Opening At Vyksa Metallurgical Plant

Posted on December 7, 2011 by

This time we’ll show you Vyksa Metallurgical Plant (VMP) which is located in the city of Vyksa in the Nyzhniy Novgorod Region. Founded in 1757, it is the most powerful pipe and train wheel producer in Russia. The main event of the recent days became the opening of the new ‘Stan-5000′ metallurgical complex (or ‘MKS-5000′).


Construction of the ‘MKS-5000′ began in 2008 and this fall they put it into operation. They invested over 1.5 billion dollars into the complex and by 2013 they hope to make domestic pipe producers independent of metal sheets supply from abroad.

The metallurgical plant in Vyksa is the main employer for the city’s population (60 thousand people).

Most of the city sights are somehow connected with it.
