Ukrainian Slavutskiy Budfarfor Uses Riedhammer Kilns

October 6, 2011

Slavutskiy Budfarfor, a joint venture between Sanitec and Ukrainian private investors, has increased the output capacity of its plant in Slavuta, Ukraine, with a new tunnel kiln built by Riedhammer, a Sacmi Group company. The kiln, a 147-m long, 3.6-m wide TWS model, was installed, tested and started up last February, and provides a daily output of some 4200 pieces. The plant also includes a shuttle kiln from Sacmi Riedhammer. The nine-car HWS model is able to re-fire up to 1100 pieces per day.

The investment will reportedly allow Slavutskiy Budfarfor to increase its presence in the Ukrainian market, with further opportunities for expansion in the strategic “bridge zone” between the EU and the Russian market.
