Tajik aluminum plant

When designing the aluminum plant in Tursunzade in 1984–1990, Project Development Institute No. 1 applied innovative solutions: water-supply and sewage internal network pipes were first laid in seismic regions using rubber inserts in pipelines and sleeves in the walls, allowing for the axial and radial shifting of pipes. Today, the Tajik aluminum company accounts for a full 100% of Tajikistan’s total aluminum production volume.
