Dnepropetrovsk tyre plant

In April 1956, the Institute was charged by order of the construction minister to carry out the overall design of the Dnepropetrovsk tire plant, applying pre-stressed structures in the project. The project became one of the Institute’s most important jobs. When designing the first tire plants, Institute specialists resolved many complex tasks, especially related to heating and ventilation. The plant was launched in 1961 and is still one of the country’s biggest tire manufacturers.
