Open Joint Stock Company "Dnepropetrovsk Steelwork Plant named after I.V.Babushkin"
is one of the largest enterprises of former USSR in producing
The history of the plant begins from the end of the 19-th
century. There was a need of metal bridges in railway building
industry. So a separate bridge workshop was opened at the
base of Bryansk plant.
The Bridge shop was opened in 1890 at the plant named after
Petrovskiy, where in 1894 the first bridges were produced.
By the year 1930 the bridge shop already gave near 25 thousand
tones of product a year and it was separated in the independent plant of
metal structuress in submission of Steelbridge Trust.
At the beginning of 30-ies the plant considerably expanded its
fabrication floorspace as well as the modernization of
production was carried out, which let the delivery of
industrial design and bridges be increased to the ammount up
to 40-45 thousand tons a year.
The basic technological process at the plant was riveting.
The primary welding was used only at repairing works when
producing low-duty products.
In 1940 the plant began preparing to construction of welded span
of a big highway bridge across Dnieper river
in Kyiv cooperatively with the Institute of Electric Welding
named after Pathon using automatic submerger arc welding.
The most honourable orders of the plant for the time being
independent were the orders from Dneprostroy, Kuznetsk,
Stalingrad and Kharkov tractor plants. After the Great World
War II the plant manufactured more than 45 blast-furnace
assemblages and 35 open-hearth furnace assemlages; 25 rolling
mills, 15 chemical industries; 20 hydroelectric and thermal
power stations, more than 50 towers and turrets for radio- and
Nowadays the plant produced more than 45 complete sets of
blast furnace and 35 complete sets of open-hearth furnace;
25 roll-mills; 15 chemical industry enterprises; 20 hydraulic
and thermal stations; more than 50 masts and towers and so
The plant produced more than 5 million tones of metal constructions
when it was 70 years old.
During the years of its work the plant supplied more than 30 countries of the
World with its production.
Over the last 5 years the factory has made metal constructions bridges (the river Dnepr Zaporozhye, the bridge through an input in Harbour, the river Zapadnaya Dvina (Belarus), the river of Sozh (Belarus)), the Trading-entertaining centres ("Magellan" Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk, "Caravan" Dnepropetrovsk), shopping centres ("Ashan" Makeyevka, "Vienna" Chernigov), metal constructionsobjects of welfare appointment (Kiev), ofisno-otelnyj a complex "Hilton" (Kiev), ангарный a complex at airport "Внуково" (Russia), a warehouse complex «Logistical park», metal constructionsstadium "Metallurgist" (Dnepropetrovsk), metal constructionsmasts and towers a body - of radio stations, cellular communication.
In manufacturing of metal constructions the carbon cast steel,
low-alloyed steel and HSLA steel is used.
Our overhead cranes bearing power allows producing metal constructions
that weight up to 50 tones a hollow unit, and if its length is more than
12 meters, than it may weight up to 70 tones.
Dnepropetrovsk Steelwork Plant named after I.V.Babushkin is the largest well-known
