By Jeila Aliyeva - Trend:
An enterprise for the production of sound and thermal insulation materials made of thin basalt fiber and mineral wool will be opened in Balkan region of Turkmenistan, Trend reports with reference to State news Agency of Turkmenistan.
An international tender was held for the purchase and installation of technological equipment of the enterprise.
The enterprise will be built in accordance with the decree of President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov dated February 20, 2020 "Construction of Industrial and Production Facilities of the Ministry of Industry and Construction Production of Turkmenistan in 2020-2023".
Thus, the construction of the enterprise will help to increase the production of building materials in the country.
The construction materials industry is developing in Turkmenistan. The metallurgical and gas-concrete plants in Ovadan Depe in the country’s Ahal province contribute to the diversification of national economy.
Turkmen enterprises also produce leer panels, reinforced blocks, expanded clay, prefabricated reinforced concrete products, ceramic bricks and facing slabs.
Large-panel housing construction plants, designed for manufacturing reinforced concrete structures for the construction of multi-storey residential buildings and cottage style houses, greatly increased their capacities.
The output volumes of ceramic bricks, rebars, metal profiles, plastic and fiberglass pipes has increased as well.
Turkmenistan’s rich natural resources make it possible to increase the production of expanded clay, the main component of which is argillite, which is extracted at the Yagman field in the country’s Balkan region.
