Commission Impossible

Following initial contact in 2008, the relationship between Spiroll and Vikon has gone from strength to strength. With Spiroll’s vast experience in hollowcore production and Vikon at the forefront of promoting modern precast technologies in Russia, the partnership showed great promise from day one.

The most recent beneficiary of this shared expertise is ZKPD-70, a construction company based in Nizhniy Novgorod, situated between Moscow and Kazan. ZKPD-70 recruited the services of Vikon following the acquisition of a contract to build 5,000 apartments in the city using precast frame technology and hollowcore slabs.

Vikon provided ZKPD-70 with the precast design of the buildings; and then detailed a package of production equipment necessary to manufacture the individual elements. This included prestressed beam and reinforced column moulds, a stair mould and universal casting beds for wall panels. With installation supervised by Vikon, a complete Spiroll hollowcore production setup was installed, including:

  • 3 x 90 metre casting beds
  • Hydraulic detensioning system and stressing abutments
  • 220mm Universal Extruder
  • Crosscut Saw
  • Wetcut Saw
  • Bed Cleaner
  • Concrete distribution skips

The machinery was commissioned over a 3 day period by a team from Spiroll with great results and achieving a high quality product from the outset. On the final day of the commissioning visit, Spiroll’s team were invited to attend a ceremony involving the placing of the first precast column on site. The local mayor and senior employees of Vikon and ZKPD-70 were also in attendance. The hospitality, particularly the now infamous  “Russian Table”, went down a storm!

The delivery on this project, from the initial precast frame design through to the fixing of individual elements on site, shows the level of service and support than can be expected in future turnkey projects involving Spiroll and Vikon, whether in Russia or CIS countries. This success will be built upon in new projects already underway with SKC Beton in Kazakhstan, Fedorchenko in Ukraine and USK in Russia. The common values of efficiency, quality and shared desire to bring modern precast technology to markets around the world will certainly stand the partnership in good stead for the foreseeable future.
