“Krasny Kotelshchik” Expands Cooperation with Don State Technical University
The Taganrog Boiler-Making Works “Krasny Kotelshchik” (TKZ) and Don State Technical University (DGTU) agreed about the new format of their joint work. The format was presented during the visit to the company of the University teachers and master’s students.
In 2016 the TKZ - DGTU joint project was implemented: the corporate academic department was established which offered exciting possibilities for the mutually beneficial cooperation. The purpose of this establishment was to raise the attainment level of specialists in the field of power plant engineering and to develop the training programs accounting for the Taganrog Boiler-Making Works profile.
Three years later it was decided to expand such cooperation. It has been agreed to carry out joint research works which will be of applicational significance to TKZ. The main condition is that the suggested solutions are to be cost-effective for the company, reduce the company expenses and enhance the quality of products.
Two topics are of priority. The first one is the surface welding for sealing surfaces of power valves. The second one is bending of heating surface tubes. Both DGTU research teaching fellows and TKZ specialists will work on these topics. It is also planned to involve the University engineering master’s degree program students in this research work. Such scientific study will form the basis of their thesis research paper.
