Ambulances for Kalmykia

On October 24, 2017 Republic of Kalmykia Head Alexey Orlov and CPC General Director Nikolay Gorban handed over the ambulances to the Republican Disaster Medicine Center. The ceremony also attended by Ruslan Nagayev, Kalmykia Minister of Health Care, and Mikhail Grishankov, CPC Deputy General Director, was held on Elista main square.
In total 9 ambulances were handed over on October 24, 2017, which were bought using the charity funds of the International Consortium: 8 Class B vehicles and a Class A vehicle for the total value of almost 20 M Rubles. As a note, the Class A vehicles allow to transport patients, who do not require emergency aid during the transportation, together with medical staff. Class B vehicles provide for an opportunity of rendering emergency medical aid by a physician (paramedic) team during patient transportation and monitoring their condition at the stage of delivering them to an inpatient medical institution.

Specialized vehicles are supplied with all necessary equipment: monitor defibrillators, 3-lead ECG, equipment for controlled ventilation and assisted respiration, pulse-oxygen machines, glucose express metering instruments and other instrumentation.
As a reminder, in December 2016 CPC Management together with the Republic Head handed over 15 ambulances for the total value of almost 21.5 M Rubles to Kalmykia medical institutions. At that time, the Republican First-Aid Station, Republican Disaster Medicine Center, Iki-Burulsky and Chernozemelsky District Hospitals received the specialized vehicles.
The CPC pipeline system is one of the largest investment projects with foreign capital in the energy sector in the CIS. The length of the Tengiz–Novorossiysk Pipeline is 1,511 km; it transports over two thirds of all Kazakhstan export crude, as well as crude from Russian oil fields, including the Caspian Region. CPC Marine Terminal is equipped with three Single Point Moorings (SPM) that allow to load tankers safely at a significant distance offshore, also amid poor weather conditions.
