Pokrov Plant of Concrete Goods produces concrete goods for Mosmetrostroy, a subway-building company, industrial engineering and housing construction.
The company was founded on May 1st, 1970 and in 2009 it was purchased by Mosmetrostroy. The plant today features up-to-date equipment to produce high quality concrete tunnel blocks of 5 types.
Let’s visit its carousel line first. The carousel line produces concrete blocks of three types.
This is where they make reinforcing cages for their concrete blocks.
Then each reinforcing cage goes into a special chamber to be filled with concrete.
A vibration stand.
They use scrapers to manually shape the surface of each block.
Then it goes into a curing pit.
