A contract for 5 baling shears of 600 tons of cutting force, has been delivered in 2012 … That was the challenge launched by INTERPIPE in December 2011. It required no less than three visits to Danieli Henschel Service specialists’ team to define the exact shearing needs for their request. With the experience gained over 10 years in the CIS, these meetings where the rich exchange between professionalism and technicians INTERPIPE knowledge and experience Danieli Henschel, allowed us to stop the optimal choice for customer with CIV 600-8L I models (600 tons of cutting force press-shear, long box version, with optional bucket).

The call for tenders issued by INTERPIPE has received offers from more than eight companies, and in the final phase, Danieli Henschel was awarded. Danieli Henschel organized a trip to IEC for Ukrainian technicians on various scrap yards using similar press-shears in order to demonstrate that work in extreme weather conditions in no way affects the performance and productivity of Danieli Henschel equipment! This visit allowed the customer’s technicians to ensure the professionalism and quality Danieli Henschel, and ensure their support for the ultimate choice.

The final decision was taken mid-December 2011 and in January 2012, Danieli Henschel and INTERPIPE definitely validated this agreement by signing the final contract. From then on, everything has been implemented to allow delivery of the contract on time. The first four CIV 600-8 LI are now set up on their respective sites; the last one will be soon commissioned in Dnepropetrovsk. INTERPIPE already owned two baling shears CIV 500-8 and two CIV 1000-8 purchased in 2009 and 2010.
