Indian Engineers train with Russia to hone heavy engineering skills


The Russian State Research Centre CNIITMASH (a subsidiary of ROSATOM State Atomic Energy Corporation) has completed six courses to train the Indian engineers in high-end skills ranging from ‘steelmaking to after-treatment of steel in power engineering and heavy engineering’.

These courses took place at the Center for General Engineering and Technical Education (TSOITO) in Ranchi (Republic of India), at the premises of one of the largest state-owned machine-building enterprises in India – Heavy Engineering Corporation (HEC) Ltd. As part of the 2015 Agreement between the CNIITMASH and HEC Ltd, 120 specialists have already been trained during three courses that was held during 2018. The remaining three courses for the Indian machine builders will take place in 2019. The final course of 2018 was attended by 20 Indian engineers and was called “Technology of casting blanks equipment for heavy and power engineering” and lasted for 9 days.

After completion of one of the training courses, Chairman and Manager of HEC Ltd. Avijit Ghosh sent an official letter to Vladislav Lurye, Head of the CNIITMASH delegation, thanking them for lecturing on the advanced training course named “Steelmaking and after-treatment of steel in power engineering and heavy engineering” that took place in autumn. These courses were attended by 21 representatives of mechanical engineering and metallurgy in India.

As per the press release issued by the ROSATOM, lecturer Vladislav Lurye said: “…The received information is required for work completion. The group of participants included regular engineers, however there was also a steel metallurgist, whose experience in managing the steel-smelting shop is 26 years. There were representatives of expert organizations, those who are responsible for future direction of Indian’s machine-building enterprises. I was extremely pleased to see how much each of them was involved.”

Heavy Engineering Corporation Ltd (HEC Ltd) is an Indian state-owned company operating in the field of heavy engineering. The cooperation Agreement between НЕС Ltd and CNIITMASH was signed in December 2015.

CNIITMASH is the developer of basic materials, technologies and products of power and heavy engineering, including the most important elements of the equipment of nuclear power units with VVER-1000 reactors, nuclear power plants of the new generation NPP-2006, hydraulic and gas turbines, power units of thermal power plants, powerful presses and metallurgical units.
