In a record time of "Ural Plant of gas centrifuges" (Novouralsk company Fuel Company of Rosatom "fuel elements") failed to reconfigure its production base for production of gas centrifuges new, ninth generation. In February, the first units went to the technological department of the Ural Electrochemical Plant.
Working with the design documentation and debugging process began in August last year. The last units of the eighth-generation plant stopped producing in late December. A little less than two months it took UZGTS professionals to solve all the problems by re-adjustment of the equipment, the development of a new range of parts, providing tooling and supply management. Essential role played by the fact that six months before the production of such centrifuges was launched at the Kovrov Mechanical Plant, which experts gave their experience.
