On 23 April 2019, during a working visit to the Udmurtian Republic, the delegation of Transneft, led by Vice President Pavel Revel-Muroz, visited the leading industrial enterprises and held a working meeting, with the head of the republic Aleksandr Brechalov participating.
The purpose of the delegation’s visit was involving the region’s enterprises in the manufacture of products for Transneft subsidiaries as well as expanding cooperation, as part of the import substitution thrust.
Participating in the event were heads of Transneft’s relevant business units, Director General of Transneft Kama Region Robert Galiev, as well as representatives of regional enterprises.
The delegation members familiarised themselves with samples of products manufactured by the regional enterprises: ZALA AERO (aircrafts), Bummash (non-standard equipment and metalwork) NITI Progress (welding technologies and equipment, metal processing technologies) and ETZ Vector (production of factory-assembled switchgear and transformer substations).
During the meeting, the participants discussed some solutions and prospects to further transition from using imported products to using domestically manufactured ones. The manufacturers were provided with information on the requirements for products purchased by Transneft, and on the procurement procedures.
“We visited enterprises specialising in the manufacture of products which could be needed by Transneft. There are opportunities for their participation in our programmes,” said Mr. Revel-Muroz. The head of the Udmurtian Republic Aleksandr Brechalov added that there are opportunities for further cooperation with regional enterprises in various partnership formats.
The meeting’s participants noted the successful interaction between a number of republican enterprises and Transneft subsidiaries. To date, major contracts have been signed with nine suppliers representing small and medium-sized businesses in Udmurtia.
As part of the import substitution programme, in 2018 – 2019, Transneft has held business meetings with representatives of seven constituent entities of the Russian Federation: the Republic of Tatarstan, the Chuvash Republic, Altai Territory, Tyumen, Vladimir and Yaroslavl Regions. Participating in those meetings were representatives of 101 entities.
The share of domestically made equipment used by Transneft reaches 93%: by 2020, its share will presumably rise to 97%.
