On June 28 in Naberezhnye Chelny at the press-frame plant the new line for the production of aluminum fuel tanks which will replace the supply of imported tanks from Austria was launched for the first time in Russia. ⠀
KAMAZ has decided to organize its own production of aluminum fuel tanks 2 years ago. The project was supported by the industrial development Fund and provided the manufacturer with a loan under the «Component products» program.
As a part of the KAMAZ project, it began production of aluminum fuel tanks with a volume of 200 to 800 liters. The capacity of the new production is 35 thousand tanks per year. The line is universal and allows to produce both aluminum and steel fuel tanks.
