ARGO mobile workshop - is a special-purpose vehicle based of the KAMAZ chassis used for solution of a wide range of tasks on repair and maintenance of technical objects, such as the linear part of major and local distributional pipelines, compressor stations, etc.
The mobile workshop (car workshop) is equipped with various systems designed for realization of repair and refurbishment works with pipelines.
The mobile workshop is equipped with a diesel generator (up to 100kW capacity) which is used for repair, welding, cutting and selection of metal defects.
The side-by-side position of the diesel-generator allows to use effectively the bode space for placement of a large number of equipment pieces. The convertible flaps-ladders provide convenient operation and an easy access to the equipment.
