The Turkmenabat Silk Production Association implements the programme on technical and technological modernization aimed at improving the efficiency of coconut production, increasing the export capacity of the enterprise.
Four innovative cocoon milling machines have been installed and adjusted. The new equipment was delivered from the People's Republic of China. The equipment is characterized by high productivity, low waste technology and high quality silk fiber output. According to the head of the cocoon winding plant, the new units will be put into operation this summer - by the beginning of the silkworm processing season.
Refined fabrics and carpets are produced at the enterprise. The surplus silk yarn and cocoon wool are exported.
In 2019, the association produced 380,000 square meters of high-quality silk fabric, 80 tons of yarn and over 110 square meters of silk carpets. This year the enterprise is planning to significantly exceed last year's figures.
