    Development Projects of Russia: Industry, Energy and Infastructure

    Post  sepheronx on Fri Apr 30, 2010 12:13 pm

    OBNINSK /the Kaluga Region/, April 29 (Itar-Tass) -- A new Internet site, that of the presidential commission on modernisation, went live on Thursday, Russia’s President Dmitry Medvedev announced at the meeting of the Commission for Modernisation and Technological Development of Russia’s Economy.

    “The site will cover all our activities we started a year ago,” he said.

    The president said he hoped the site - www.i-russia.ru - “will become popular and interesting”.

    ITAR-TASS

    With such a site, it will make it easy to monitor what is happening in the high tech sectors, and allow people to show either both criticism and or appreciation/ideas that could be beneficial.  Since it will also be a gathering point for business men, engineers and scientists alike, could help with development and financing.

    In my opinion, giving the companies the ability to have free web hosting and site creation, could also help (through sponsoring and communication). In such a case, can bring in money to both the web farm, and for the industries involved in the projects in the future Silicon Valley.

    Russia launches web site dedicated to modernization process
    15:19 22/07/2010

    The Russian authorities have launched a website dedicated to the achievements and goals of the country's modernization process, a major domestic initiative of Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.

    The ModernRussia.com site will detail the activities of Russian authorities, public organizations and businesses that aim to promote modernization.

    The website was created in cooperation with international PR agency Ketchum.

    The project organizers hope public discussions on the site will help the Russian government to overcome obstacles standing in the way of development and boost modernization.

    The government has also opened an account on the micro-blogging site Twitter, dedicated to the same issues.

    MOSCOW, July 22 (RIA Novosti)

    Russia opting for ‘fast reactors’ for fourth-generation nuclear power

    Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corpor-ation (Rosatom) has decided to focus on the development of fast neutron reactors (FNRs) to provide the Generation IV component of its future nuclear energy policy. FNRs are designed to burn uranium 238 (U-238) while conventional reactors, such as pressurised water reactors (PWRs), use uranium 235 (U-235) as their fuel.

    However, U-235 makes up only 0,7% of natural uranium, whereas U-238 accounts for the remaining 99,3%. Thus, most nuclear power today makes use of less than 1% of the energy available in uranium.

    FNRs also burn actinides (which include uranium and plutonium) as fuel – these are the long-lasting high-level radioactive by-products of nuclear fission in other reactor designs.
    (If they are not used as fuel for FNRs or reprocessed, actinides become the most difficult category of nuclear waste.)

    FNRs can be designed to produce more plutonium than they consume. Such FNRs are called fast breeder reactors (FBRs), which ‘breed’ fuel for other FNRs.

    FNRs thus maximise the use of uranium ore and, in their FBR form, allow the creation of a closed nuclear fuel cycle. An open nuclear fuel cycle requires a constant input of fresh uranium, but a closed fuel cycle greatly reduces this need, with FBRs producing fuel for other reactors, whose waste products, in turn, help fuel the FBRs and other FNRs.

    FNRs/FBRs are not new concepts and the world has some 400 reactor years experience in operating such units, but earlier versions suffered from some technical problems and were uneconomic in an era of very low uranium prices. But technology has advanced, and uranium prices have risen again.

    Rosatom points out that no less than 86,7% of the energy potential of Russia’s natural resources is contained in U-238, while coal contains 8,7%, gas 3,4%, oil 0,8% and U-235 a mere 0,4%. The Russian group also has some 30 years of experience in operating the sodium-cooled BN-600 FNR, which was preceded by the BN-350, BR-5/10 and BN-1/2 FNRs (the last operating during the 1950s). The BN-600 has a capacity of 600 MWe and provides power to the grid and is expected to operate until 2020. Rosatom is now busy with its next FNR, the 880 MWe capacity BN-800, which is expected to enter operation in 2014. However, over the next decade at least, Rosatom will continue to build PWRs (known as VVERs in Russia).

    Nuclear power contributed 16% of Russia’s, and 29% of European Russia’s, energy output in 2008. In terms of installed capacity, the national share of nuclear power was 11%. Total installed capacity was 23,2 GW, spread around ten nuclear power plants (NPPs) equipped with 31 reactors.

    Russia plans to increase the share of nuclear produced energy to about 23% of total energy production for the whole country, and to about 32% for European Russia, by 2020.
    The plan is to achieve this by commissioning 2 GW of capacity a year after 2013 through the construction of standardised nuclear reactors. With funding that is guaranteed, Russia should have 32,3 GW of new nuclear capacity by 2020 – with additional funding, this would rise to 38,1 GW – while 3,7 GW of nuclear capacity would be decommissioned.

    Rosatom is also one of the international companies interested in South Africa’s proposed new NPP programme. Like its competitors, it is offering this country a Generation III PWR design, namely the latest generation of its VVER-1000 reactor in the AES-91/99 NPP design. (The Russians have separate designations for reactors and for the NPPs). In 2003, the AES-91/99 design (including the reactor) was certified as complying with European Union standards by Finnish experts.

    South Africa has well-established relations with Rosatom. Techsnabexport (under the brand name Tenex), a subsidiary of Rosatom, has supplied South Africa with low-enriched uranium to manufacture fuel for Eskom’s only NPP, at Koeberg, near Cape Town. In more general terms, South Africa has cooperated with Russia in the nuclear sector for some years now and the two countries have a Joint Coordination Committee on cooperation in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy.

    In more general terms, South Africa has cooperated with Russia in the
    nuclear sector for some years now and the two countries have a Joint
    Coordination Committee on cooperation in the peaceful uses of nuclear
    energy.

    In addition to the money earned by building NPPs for other countries Russias economy will certainly benefit from a reliable supply of energy.

    As an aside the Australians are worried because they have an enormous amount of Uranium and export it widely, but one of their main clients is Japan, which seems to be reconsidering its policy on nuclear power.

    The Aussies refused to sell Uranium to the Russians on ethical grounds... perhaps they might reconsider... but if the Russians are turning to Fast Breeder designs they perhaps might not be so interested any more.

    The Tsunami in Japan and the Earthquake raise questions about NPP safety but the new concepts proposed by Russia for NPPs in ships that could be sailed to a remote region and connected to the local power grid to supply electricity without having to lay and maintain thousands of kms of cable perhaps offers an interesting option. Being an Island nation Japan could use ship based NPPs that sit in protected harbours, and with the threat of a Tsunami could be sailed immediately to deeper water when the wave heights will be minimal.
    Being ship based apart from a Tsunami these types of reactors would not be effected by even very serious earth quakes.
    It could be possible to have very long underwater cables out to deep water piers for the ships to dock and connect to the local power grid and in case of a storm have similar connections in a protected harbour... so the vessels spend most of their time moored offshore in deep water connected to the local power grid... the ship and the reactor manned all the time so that at short notice it can uncouple and in a storm sail into harbour and reconnect to ride out the storm in the safety of the harbour. Earthquakes would not effect it in the Harbour or out in deep water... the only potential problems would be Tsunamis and storms.

    In fact the safest place to locate them would be inland on lakes where there would be no serious threat of Tsunamis and of course being on water earthquakes would not effect them and even serious storms would not be enough to make a lake rough enough for the risk of losing the boat.

    Oops, my mistake.

    Apparently the Aussies changed their minds in early 2010 and are now agreeing to sell Uranium to Russia.

    Here is a quote:

    While exports to Russia will go ahead, Australia doesn’t allow uranium
    to be sent to India for energy use because the South Asian country
    hasn’t signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

    http://www.businessweek.com/news/2010-04-23/australia-will-allow-exports-of-uranium-to-russia-update2-.html

    "We've come to the conclusion that we can safely export uranium to
    Russia and it won't be diverted for military purposes," Smith said.

    http://gsn.nti.org/gsn/nw_20100319_4537.php

    I rather doubt their public reasons for releasing U to be exported to Russia as the Aussies are very Russophobic... It is most likely the political power of the mining industry in Australia that changed their minds as their mining industry is very powerful... probably why Gillard got into the drivers seat to be honest.

    Well Initially Aussie was go hung to sell Uranium to India after the Indo-US nuclear deal , later they changed their mind and added not signing NPT as their concern but then i suppose its their sovereign right on who should they sell their resources.

    Their supposed reason for not selling to Russia was that they thought the Russians would use it to make nuclear weapons.

    The reason everyone is interested in Aussie U is because it is plentiful and cheap so you can order big.

    Apparently the Howard government changed its mind and was going to sell to India but the Gillard government decided to block it when it got into power.

    I agree it is all their choice and they have the right to sell to whoever they want, but I think it is quite funny the double standard... I wonder what the Australian reaction would be to all the oil states deciding not to sell oil to Australia because of its poor human rights record.
    It wasn't till the 1967 Aussie census that they stopped counting Aborigines as flora and fauna...

    I think they have enough Plotonium to make nuclear weapons at one time they had 30 thousand nuclear weapons.

    And any uranium transaction that happen between NPT and non-NPT countries are under IAEA safeguard , so there is no way Russia or any other country can divert those to weapons use.

    Indeed but hopefully its not a bottle neck to India , India has largest reserves for thorium (suffiecient to provide energy for next 200 years ) and its 3 stage Nuclear program is suppose to use thorium in 3rd stage.

    At a time when the US is sucking up to India the aussies are giving you the finger... will those convicts never learn manners... Twisted Evil
    Of course even NZ has large amounts of Uranium on the East Coast of the South Island, but it is not worth mining yet. If Russia really does follow through with fast breeder reactors it will reduce waste problems and eliminate fuel requirements.

    Moscow - Kazan HSR got the approval at SPIEF  , Trains will run between 200-400 km/hr and will complete journey in 3.5 hrs

    Russia to develop high-speed railways


    On Monday President Vladimir Putin chaired a meeting on prospects for the development of high-speed railway communication in Russia. The head of the Russian Railways company (RZD) Vladimir Yakunin demonstrated to the president and the government a project on the construction of high-speed railways linking Moscow with Sochi, Kazan and Yekaterinburg.

    Although several directions for new high-speed railways are being studied, the Volga region looks one of the most promising variants, Rossiyskaya Gazeta wrote. Putin said this is an industrial region, where many people reside and which needs better communications with the capital. “Even a particular city is mentioned - Kazan,” the president said. There is one more opportunity - to link Moscow, Rostov-on-Don and Adler. In case of successful implementation of the project passengers will spend only 8 hours on this trip. However, the second direction will be on seasonal demand, while the route through the Volga region will be much in demand year round.

    Yakunin said ticket prices for high-speed trains will range from one to ten roubles per one kilometer depending on carriage classes, Komsomolskaya Pravda wrote. Until 2023 the Russian Railways company plans to build over 4,000 kilometers of high-speed rail lines (train speed will reach from 200 to 400 kilometers per hour) and around 7,000 kilometers of new lines with a speed from 140 to 200 kilometers per hour.

    Initially, the Moscow-St. Petersburg railway (the project was dubbed as HSR-1) estimated at over 1 trillion roubles was a priority, Kommersant wrote. A feasibility study was prepared, engineering and land surveys were conducted and talks with investors took place. But the project was postponed indefinitely. Elena Sakhnova of VTB Capital noted that railway communication between Moscow and St. Petersburg has already been at a rather good level thanks to high-speed trains Sapsan running between the two cities.

    The expert said it was inexpedient to invest 1 trillion roubles into this direction, even taking into account an opportunity to separate passenger and cargo traffic.

    “From economic and political considerations it was decided to start from the eastern direction. This section will link three cities, which will host the 2018 FIFA World Cup - Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod and Kazan. In theory, it can be built by 2018, this would be a breakthrough, 70 percent of the project will be financed by the government and 30 percent - by private investors,” the Izvestia daily quoted Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov as saying.

    In the future separate high-speed railway sections are expected to be built between Moscow and St. Petersburg as well as between Moscow, Rostov-on-Don and Sochi, the daily wrote. After these high-speed rail lines are launched, a trip from Moscow to Kazan will take just 3.5 hours and from Moscow to Sochi - 7 hours. For the moment Russian trains’ speed remains low, the average speed of a European train is two times higher than that of Russian one.

    Development and Modernization of Russia

    Post  sepheronx on Mon Jul 08, 2013 4:34 am

    I decided to start this thread as more or less as an index of various development projects either in the works, already built or in design as it is a good way to go back and check to see development, so that it is better to have a link rather than here-say because we may have lost the link altogether.

    Please, do not post stupid comments with no base to information. So in other words, provide links and reason please. As well, please try to diversify the information. Like where the links come from as well as provide other information about other industries, not just oil/gas...

    I'll start:

    Russia Republic Daegestan to Build a Satellite City

    In Dagestan, construction of satellite cities "Riviera". According to experts, this is the only object that includes a large number of social infrastructure. The project provides for the opening in the 4 schools, kindergartens, Republican Perinatal Center. As well as an indoor water park, the home of dance "Lezghinka" Theatre for Young Audiences, and even the circus. The city will be in an area of ​​300 hectares. The total amount of funds spent 150 billion rubles. Complete it in 2017.

    Orenburg Region Built Complex to Process Oilseeds

    The commissioning of new production facilities for processing of oilseeds soybeans, canola, sunflower and other oilseeds, scheduled in the Orenburg region, in Sorochinsk in the second half of the year.

    Construction of Far Eastern Region for Wood Processing

    In the Amur Khabarovsk Krai holding «RFP Group» continues the construction of the Far Eastern Center of deep processing of timber.
    Large-scale project involves several production sites. At the end of last year, there has already earned factory veneer sheets, with capacity of 300 thousand cubic meters year.

    In the future, the planned deployment of two objects - a factory for the production of lumber with a production capacity of 230 thousand cubic meters. m / year, and the start-line for the production of MDF based on the upgraded Amur dock (50 thousand cubic meters. m. / year).

    In Ulyanovsk Region, Built New Concrete Plant

    In the village of Sengilei Ulyanovsk region is building Sengileysky cement plant 1.25 million tons of cement per year.

    In the department of grinding raw gas cleaning continues with installation of double bag filter 2617BF1, 2617FN1 fan and ductwork. Made of fire-retardant paint metal. Installed ventilation equipment. Performs installation of flue gas from the gas turbine power plant to the grinding of raw materials.

    Agro-Food Logistics Centre Being Built in Dagestan

    17 billion rubles and 150 acres of land. In the Kizlyar district of Dagestan build agro-food logistics center.

    Construction of the first phase has already begun. It will be a meat-processing plant. Its capacity will annually process 540,000 tons of meat and large melkorogatogo cattle.

    Russia Makes its Quantum Leap towards its own Quantum Computer

    For the first time in Russian history, Moscow-based scientists have measured the status of a quantum bit, or qubit, which is an essential component in the quantum computing technology, news agency RIA Novosti reports, citing a source in the Russian Quantum Center (RQC).

    The measurements have been made in a lab run by MISiS, a leading Russian university of technology, as part of a joint research project with the RQC.

    1C Seeks Global Expansion

    1C, Russia’s largest publisher of enterprise software, has given a major face-lift to its franchisee partner network across the former Soviet Union and is putting together a strategy to expand beyond the well-tapped CIS markets, East-West Digital News, the international resource on Russian digital industries, reported late last month.

    According to 1C CEO Boris Nuraliev, the franchisee overhaul addresses the widespread and growing problem of incompetence that the publisher’s partners have demonstrated time and again in marketing 1C software products. The trouble was long exacerbated by the inadequacy of Russian legislation regulating franchising relationships prior to 2011.

    Orenburg To Build Solar Plant to Produce 30MW of Energy

    The Orenburg region in the South Urals and Hevel Solar, a Russian developer of solar solutions, have signed an agreement paving the way for jointly building a network of solar stations in the area with an aggregate installed capacity of 30MW, regional news portal Oren.ru reports.

    Hevel Solar is a JV between Renova, a sizable group of Russian industrial companies, and Rusnano, Russia’s nanotech giant.

    Russia pledges financial support for Irkutsk Pharma Cluster

    The Russian Government is ready to support the development of a pharmaceutical cluster in Siberia’s Irkutsk region, pharma news portal Remedium.ru reports.

    Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev reportedly said that earlier this month at a meeting with regional United Russia party leaders.

    “If you’re ready to invest, and ready to pursue it in earnest, we will make a supporting decision as we are committed to developing our own intellectual potential,” the premier said.

    Gold mining in Krasnoyarsk reached a record high

    Krasnoyarsk Territory in 2012 has achieved a record level of gold production.

    According to some data the government of the region, was recovered from the depths of 60 tons 204 kilograms of the precious metal. This is the highest figure in the 21st century. For comparison, in 2001 the region produced 19.6, in 2011 - 55.8 tons of gold.
    In general, in the Krasnoyarsk region has nearly 300 deposits of alluvial and bedrock gold, the distribution fund are 131 of them. Stocks of the precious metal in the region now exceeds one thousand tons.

    Renault has announced the continuation of investment in Autoframos

    Moscow, July 1 - AIF Moscow . Renault has announced the continuation of investment in the plant in Moscow, under an agreement between the company and the Government of Moscow.

    Lukoil has begun to install platform in Caspian Sea

    The support blocks are attached to the seabed by piles 20, each of which has a diameter of 2 meters. Piles hammered into the ground to a depth of 60 meters, which provides secure attachment platform, designed for the possible effects of extreme ice and waves.

    Trillion on high technology

    Rostekhnadzor revenue from exports increased by 17% and was more than the state defense order.
    In 2012, the revenue of the State Corporation Rostekhnadzor (export included) reached 931 billion rubles, which is 14% more than last year. Over the past three years, with the actual transfer of assets Rostekhnadzor, SC revenue almost doubled, while exports increased by 50%.

    Trillion in high-tech
    Rostekhnadzor State Corporation was set up in 2007, but in 2009 the state has transferred its 437 companies as a material contribution. A substantial portion of the assets was in poor condition: 17 companies not engaged in economic activity, 27 partially lost their property or had a significant risk of loss, 148 enterprises were in the pre-crisis and crisis state, 28 - in the process of bankruptcy. Finished products in 2009 were sold only 511 billion rubles.

    For 2012, revenues Rostekhnadzor doubled and amounted to 931 billion rubles, which is 14% higher than in 2011. In 2009, the Corporation received a total loss of almost 61 billion rubles in 2012 Rostekhnadzor net profit reached 38.5 billion rubles. Corporation tax deductions companies last year rose about 10% to more than 109 billion rubles.

    Look at link for more information.

    This bit is nice to hear: "Wages and salaries Rostekhnadzor showing steady growth over the past three years. Since 2009, it has grown by 60% - from 17 million to 27.7 million rubles in 2012. The level of wages in enterprises Rostekhnadzor almost 10% higher than the average in manufacturing."

    A corporation, with a million workers and having a massive revenue is very important. With its move towards high technology (communication and electronics), as well as energy, will make it one of the most important holdings in the world. Russia should take advantage of this company, and either start helping fund new facilities to modernize the old ones (it states that before consolidation, there were some companies that were not doing any real work and or not producing anything for the economy). As well, it would be a good way to start promoting and exporting Russian technology like MCST Elbrus processor. Once the Elbrus 4S is developed, it would be very competitive, seeing it is quite efficient even if it is not really all that fast.

    Very interesting! That would bring in a lot of specialized people, all at the same time, could create innovation and would be able to do so by not needing heavy hands of federal government.

    Wonder though if they will also enduldge in making composite materials with titanium like carbotanium?

    Thing is that projects like this one (as I see it) in Russia will greatly increase hi tech sector, machinery building, educating and employing many people in the process learning them to produce and construct and develop high value added products. Developments from Titanium Valley (which is not only oriented to titanium but all other metals and constructing materials) will find its application in various segments of Russian industry and life.

    When it comes to titanium, Russia is No.1 in the world.
