Robots created material for the Moscow metro for the first time

For the first time in the history of the Moscow metro, «Aviamotornaya» and «Lefortovo» stations used an innovative material – fiberglass concrete, when decorating the lobbies of the stations of the Bolshaya Koltsevaya line (BKL). This was announced by the Deputy mayor of Moscow in the Moscow Government for urban policy and construction Marat Khusnullin in his Twitter account.

<p>"This is a high-tech material created by domestic experts. When creating it, a unique formula of concrete with fiberglass is used. In metro construction, we generally use all available technologies. it is important for us to make the stations comfort and safe for passengers, " Marat Khusnullin said.</p> <p>In total, almost a thousand panels with an area of more than 2000 square meters were made for decoration of stations. "During installation, the panel does not touch the wall of the station, but is installed using special mounting systems, leaving space for engineering communications. This is very convenient in operation, because for replacing the cable or repairing it will only need to dismantle the facing panel, " the Deputy mayor explained.</p> <p>The supplier of innovative material was the domestic factory called "Fibrol "(a resident of the Technopark of the concern "Krost"), which produced almost 1000 panels of fiberglass concrete with an area of more than 2080 sq.m. for decoration of the lobbies. This is the first use of elements from this material in the decoration of metro stations in the Russian Federation. The innovative material is manufactured with the help of robots in the industrial Park.</p> <p>Fiberglass concrete is a high-tech material with high levels of plasticity, strength and resistance to external influences. In Russia, this material was first used to create curved forms of the facade оf the Ice cave in park “Zaryadye”. Production technology, which is usually used in the automotive industry, thanks to industrial robots allows company to ensure the highest quality of products.</p> <p>"Innovative material is manufactured at the Moscow industrial park, using robots-conveyor production technology. Robotics is one of the main directions of development of modern industry, and Moscow manufacturers follow this global trend," said Alexander Prokhorov, Head Of the Department of investment and industrial policy in Moscow.</p> <p>About 800 standard sizes were used in the manufacture of panels, with the maximum height of the panel being 6 meters. The columns of underground lobbies, cash rooms and ground lobby are covered with panels.</p> <p>Panels are manufactured with tolerances that allow you to join huge products with virtually invisible seams. Hydrophobic and vandal-proof coating will preserve the original appearance of glass fiber concrete panels for many years.</p> <p>"For the first time, fiberglass concrete panels are used for decoration metro stations in Russia, which have technological properties for strength and durability," comments Andrey Sazonov, Director of the Industry Department of company Krost, the manufacturer, "a new unique material invented by domestic engineers and specialists, manufactured by industrial robots, is now being used at key sites in Moscow. The system for installing panels on reinforced concrete structures has passed all certifications and inspections and can now be used on any public objects in the territory of the Russian Federation."</p> <p>Recall that on January 2, Moscow mayor Sergei Sobyanin conducted a technical start-up of the Aviamotornaya and Lefortovo stations as part of an inspection of the entire second section of the Nekrasovsky metro radius. "Builders are actively working even on new year's holidays. Today is a big event, the completion of work on strategically important metro lines, " Sergei Sobyanin said.</p>
