Investment activity is the main perspective of Belshina JSC development and inextricably linked with modernization, reconstruction and technical upgrading of running production.
Under performing modernization, Belshina JSC is implementing a number of big investment projects, planned for purchase of modern hi-tech equipment of leading global manufacturers. Such equipment has high automatisation level, significantly decreasing human factor presence. Herewith production efficiency greatly increases as through high efficiency of modern equipment, as through production operations high accuracy. As a result reject rate is decreasing, as well as maintenance costs, energy conservation and ecology issues are being dealt with, improvement of working conditions for service personnel.
In 2015 next main investment projects realization is complete on Belshina JSC:
• «Technical upgrade of Industrial & OTR Tire Plant». This project was realized in the period from 2011 to 2015. Capital costs 62,7 $ mil. USA. Project payback period 8,4 years.
The project is aimed at expanding a range as well as enhancing an output of wide-profile agricultural radial tires with low specific ground pressure for powerful mobile machines of national and foreign production.
• «PC&TBR tire plant. Developing the production of passenger car tires with rim diameter up to 20”». This project was realized in the period from 2013 to 2015. Capital costs 24,2 $ mil. USA. Project payback period 3,2 years.
The project is aimed at developing the production of the new range of passenger car and light-truck tires with rim diameter 15"-20", which meet the requirements of world market in line of goods, technical specifications and quality.
As a closing stage of realization, there’s one more investment project:
• «OTR Tire Plant Main Building. Establishing a production of all-steel radial tires with rim diameter up to 63 inches along with a mixing room renovation». The project realization period from 2013 to 2021. Capital costs 194,4 $ mil. USA. Project payback period 12,4 years.
The project is aimed at expanding a range as well as enhancing an output of giant OTR all-steel radial tyres to be mounted on super heavy-duty dump trucks, manufactured by BELAZ JSC, and mining transport equipment of foreign manufacture ( ‘Komatsu”, “Caterpillar” etc.) through developing the production of giant OTR all-steel tyres with rim diameter 49”-63”, designed to be operated on dump trucks with payload 90 – 450 tones.
High perspective development of Belshina JSC is the investment project:
• «Industrial & OTR Tire Plant Main Building. Establishing a production of all-steel radial tires with rim diameter 25-29 inches».
The project is aimed at expanding a range as well as enhancing an output of all-steel radial tires for articulated trucks, loaders and dozers, operated in open cast mines and a combined cycle, through developing the production of the new range of all-steel tires with rim diameter 25”-29”.
The estimated period of project realization – 2020.
Planned capital costs (excluding VAT) – 33,1 $ mil. USA.
For perspective investment projects realization, the Company has:
• production buildings and facilities needed;
