    Russia have large surplus of hydro power plants energy in Far East and export it to China. They don't need coal power plants in Far East, they have enough of hydro power plants potential and with building additional hydro power plants they could replace all thermo power plants in far east. There is also big potential for wind power plants.

    Actually as long as you burn it at high temperatures coal is not that "dirty".

    there are ways of burning it that reduce the amount of CO2 emissions.

    Coal is an abundant resource... just like wood chips, there is plenty of opportunity to apply modern technologies to make it cleaner and more efficient.

    Hydro electric is not perfect either... it covers vast areas of land in water, and is subject to droughts and flooding effecting generation and supply... you also have to have a suitable place for a dam that isn't too far from where consumers of the power live.

    Clean coal is just a marketing shill used by corporate energy empires to pretend they're actually doing something to help stop destroy our surroundings. More info here:http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Clean_coal


    The siberian airspace is one of the most toxic places in the world already. It can't afford another fossil puffing beast. This is an era where we should be putting only cleaner energy technology to use, not continue with past pollutant fuel, no matter how few percents "cleaner" it is.

    But you'll just continue to close your eyes on russia's major pollution problems and keep repeating "BBBBUUT *Insert major western fossil fuel project here* so we don't need to invest in clean energy sources".

    there is great amur river right on border between russia and china with lots of energy and there is not 1 dam built on it so far ,they should build joint venture hydroplants there first... russians have manpower and machines available since they finished old soviet projects in siberia (boguchan dam etc) , and repaired damaged sayano-shushensk hydropowerplant (largest in russia 6.500mw).
    -second you do have reversible hydroprojects where you pump water on higher ground- lake ,when you have surplus electricity ,and then use the drop of that water for production when you need electricity.

    Putting some hydroelectric generators in barents or sea of okhotsk would a much better step in the right direction. As well as the brilliant idea putting nuclear reactors of scrapped submarines to work on container ships... But its not profitable enough for the russian private energy giants and profit is all that matters these days.

    there is tremendous energy potential in okhotsk sea since its a tunnel for tidal currents ,russia could be a leader in tidal energy.
    it doesnt matter big powerplants were always state projects ,and best way to use surpluss money is to improve infrastructure or create something that will always produce cheap energy and energy is always needed.
    vast distances and high cost of superconducting cables still limits the use of this resourse.
    but amur river dams are a very viable project.

    BatTram, anyone? 'Badass' new Russian streetcar revealed (PHOTOS)



    Russian cities that want to develop their public transit systems will soon have a stellar option to buy. A sleek new black streetcar looks like something Darth Vader would pilot in Star Wars and promises new levels of comfort and safety to commuters.

    The R1, or Russia One, was developed by a subsidiary of Uralvagonzavod, a company best known for producing advanced Russian tanks. The prototype streetcar, or tram, is to be revealed to the public on Wednesday at the Innoprom-2014 tech expo, but the producer offered a sneak peak to Russian bloggers one day ahead.





    Unlike many foreign tram producers, the Russians favored angles and facets over curves. The R1 looks somewhat block-like, closer to Battlestar Gallactica than the Starship Enterprise. But thanks to black composite glass panels, red elongated lights and silver lines, the tram resembles a huge modern smartphone. Some of the designers dubbed it “an iPhone on rails.”



    The interior is meant to be both comfortable and durable. The designers sacrificed the number of seats, leaving only 28 per car, for making those seats cozy and giving more space to standing passengers.



    Several features will help using R1 in some of the harsher climatic regions of Russia. Grooved aluminum stepping boards will have built-in electric heaters utilizing energy recuperated during breaking to prevent icing in wintertime. The outer glass panels have special fitting for swift replacement. Electric batteries allow a tram cut from power lines to travel a further 50km autonomously.





    Blogger Ivan Solomin, who is a tram driver himself and was among those invited to test the prototype, has doubts about rear-view cameras that substitute side mirrors at R1. He believes they may not give an adequate rear view to the driver, lacking proper depth perception. But he also praised the driver cabin windows for giving a good direct view – about 10 to 15 percent better than tram models currently used in Russia, he assessed.



    The producer estimates that the series version of the tram will cost around 1 million euro and will have few changes compared to the prototype on display. A pilot project to introduce R1 to Russian streets will be launched in Ekaterinburg, Urals Region. The tram is promised to roll out en mass by 2017, when Russia is to host FIFA World Cup.

    Tram doesn't look too bad, and it looks like quality is there.  Besides, Uralvagonzavod is a private company thus they need to be competitive in order to stay alive, thus quality will be a factor.  In terms of functionality, well, I am not overtly impressed with the seating conditions as they look semi cramp, and having forward facing seats that can only fit one person, is a poor use of space.  If the tram is to be used in subways, which seems to be the case, then cramped space is not the way to go, efficiency (more people per cart) is the better route.  But, it does look impressive.

    I guess we will have to wait and see what will become of it.  As well, I believe this is being pushed for the international market more so than the domestic market.  So it could be good for developing countries building up their infrastructure lines.

    Regarding space, it seems to be common though in terms of a single seats: http://sdelanounas.ru/blogs/51223/

    Although, I still stand by my statement. At least the CTrain here in Calgary has dual seating for forward and backward facing seats. Our trains are from Siemans and they are usually garbage quality.

    Some positive Sino-Russian relation news I found on the Sinodefence forum:

    China, Russia to co-develop Zarubino Port

    Russia's Summa Group will work with Chinese companies on the development of Zarubino Port in Russia to attract more business from China, stated Alexander Vinokurov, Summa Group CEO, at the first China-Russia Expo.

    The project is implemented by FESCO Group (controlled by Summa Group). The first phase of the project will be operational in 2018, enabling the port to handle up to 500,000teu, 10M tonnes of grain and cargo every year.

    As an ice-free port located on the south of Primorsky Krai in Trinity Bay, Zarubino Port is only 18 km from the China-Russia border.

    It has attracted a lot of interest from Chinese investors, Vinokurov told local media.

    "The port is a logistics hub that will hugely benefit China and Russia," he said.

    On 20 May, Summa Group and China's Jilin Province inked a framework agreement on the co-construction of Zarubino Port. As for the co-operation between China and Russia, Vinokurov cited three key aspects: infrastructure construction in Russia's Far East area, agriculture trade, as well as transport and logistics.

    At present, China is Russia's largest trade partner, and the total trade between the two countries has nearly doubled, amounting to $89Bn in 2013 from $48Bn in 2007.

    China-Russia railway bridge paves new trade route

    HARBIN, Feb. 26 (Xinhua) -- There is high hope of boosted China-Russia trade after construction began on Wednesday of a railway bridge, the first of its kind, to span the two countries' border over the Heilong River.

    Designed with an annual cargo transport capacity of 21 million tonnes, the bridge will connect Tongjiang Port in northeast China's Heilongjiang Province with Nizhneleninskoye in Russia.

    China and Russia negotiated for five years on the project, which will be of great significance in connecting railway networks on each side.

    According to the final deal, the main Tongjiang-Nizhneleninskoye bridge spans 2,215 meters, with 1,900 meters in China.

    Lu Chunfang, vice general manager of the state-owned China Railway Corporation (CRC), which is in charge of construction on the Chinese side, said China plans to invest 2.64 billion yuan (431 million U.S. dollars) in the project, including the construction of the main bridge and an approach road stretching 31.62 km. The work is due to be completed in two and a half years.

    Foundation stone laying ceremonies were held on Wednesday on both sides of the river.

    Alexey Tsydenov, deputy minister of Transport for the Russian Federation, said when at the ceremony that the railway will pave a new way to tap economic potential. Russia will provide sound public infrastructure and encourage investment in the bridge.

    He said investment from the Russian side would exceed 500 million U.S. dollars.

    According to the CRC's project design, the bridge will allow a maximum train speed of 100 km per hour.

    Aleksey A. Maslov, head of the School of Asian Studies at the Russian National Research University Higher School of Economics, said there is urgent need for the railway link as a floating bridge, designed for temporary use, is put into use when the ice melts. It doesn't meet the requirements of growing cross-border trade.

    Trade turnover between China's border city of Heihe and Blagoveshchensk, capital of the Amur region in the Russian Far East, reached 1.09 billion U.S. dollars in 2013, up 32.7 percent year on year.

    "Many businessmen involved in bilateral trade have been waiting for the new bridge for years," Maslov said.

    Bulk cargo transportation between China and Russia via the border river currently relies mainly on shipping, according to Yao Xiangjun, a customs official in Tongjiang.

    He said China-Russia border railway transport is currently through two land ports -- Manzhouli in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and Suifenhe in Heilongjiang, where railways were built a century ago. Manzhouli Port handles the majority of the trade, which neared 20 million tonnes in 2013.

    Liu Ruxiang, deputy general manager of the China-Russia Ussuriysk Economic and Trade Cooperation Zone, said the new bridge would end requirements for cargo transport via the Siberia Region to detour to Manzhouli and Suifenhe.

    He forecast that the bridge will spur investment to set up industrial and logistic plants along the railway.

    Liu said the economic zone invested in by China in Ussuriysk, in Russia's Far East, has been the No. 2 taxpayer in Ussuriysk for three years.

    CHINA, RUSSIA TIES

    Jeffrey Mankoff, deputy director of the Russia and Eurasia Program of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, told Xinhua that cooperation between China and Russia remains intensive. China is crucial to Russia's plans to develop Siberia and the Far East.

    The railway bridge will help grow overland trade and transit between the Pacific, Euroasia and Europe, according to Mankoff.

    The high hopes for China-Russia trade echo those of top national leaders. Chinese President Xi Jinping made his first foreign trip of this year to Sochi in February to attend the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympic Games.

    Xi told Russia media that China-Russia cooperation has so far borne rich fruit in fields including trade and the economy, energy, advanced technology, people-to-people exchanges and international affairs, not only promoting the development and prosperity of both countries, but also helping safeguard international justice, stability and peace.

    Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said in his meeting with Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev in Beijing in October that he is confident the two countries will fulfill the 100 billion U.S. dollar trade target in 2015.

    Prof. Yuri Tavrovsky at the Moscow-based Peoples' Friendship University of Russia, said the biggest opportunity for bilateral economic cooperation may lie in Russia's Far East region, which is near China and currently Russia's major development focus.

    Russian Railways CEO calls for further development of ties with China

    SHANGHAI, July 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Railways (RZD) President Vladimir Yakunin called for further development of railway cooperation with China.
    “As trade and economic ties with the Asia Pacific countries develop, primarily with China, the development of the eastern network of Russian railways becomes increasingly important,” Yakunin said at the conference “Great Silk Road and Trans-Eurasian Belt” on Saturday, July 19.
    He believes that container transportation from land-locked northeastern provinces of China via the Russian Far Eastern ports to the south of China, Japan, the Republic of Korea and other countries could be one of the most promising areas of cooperation.
    Yakunin recalled the agreement on strategic cooperation between RZD and China Railway Corporation that was signed during President Vladimir Putin’s visit to China in May of this year.
    “Coordinated development of Russian and Chinese railways is an important condition for the expansion of foreign economic ties between other countries in Europe and Asia,” he said.
    In 2013, the volume of cross-border railway transportation with China increased by 2.2 million tonnes from the previous year, reaching 30.5 million tonnes. In the first five months of this year, it dropped by 7% (821,500 tonnes) from the same period of last year to 11.7 million tonnes, including export 10.8 million tonnes (down 5% or 557,300 tonnes) and import 784,500 tonnes (down 27% or 287,900 tonnes).

    The Hevel Solar thin-film solar module production site, the long-awaited joint project between Renova, a large group of Russian companies, and Rusnano, Russia’s nanotech giant, finally kicked off in Chuvashia, in the mid-Volga area, Regnum reported.

    The partners are said to have invested more than $550m in this factory in the city of Novocheboksarsk. Rusnano owns 49% of Hevel Solar, while Renova holds 51%. The site has helped create more than 200 local jobs.

    The launch of the factory has been pushed back several times. Original plans called for the launch in late 2011; the site was to have begun to work at full throttle in early 2012 already. The early plans were canceled as the deadlines were passing, and new deadlines were announced. The factory was then supposed to start operation in July 2013 and launch serial production four months later. Then it was November 2013 that was set as the ultimate deadline for the launch of trial production. Hevel failed again and promised to finally get the project off the ground in February 2014, with plans for commercial-scale production this past June.

    This endless string of push-backs has reportedly been attributed to difficulties with paperwork and complexities in obtaining permits.

    Excellent article on Russia's re-industrialization.

    Excellent article on Russia's re-industrialization. According to this Rostec article the Boris Yeltsin's 90's era of monetarist (or money-tsarist) austerity has caused Russia to recede it's production capacity to 1/25th of it's capability. In other words when Russia's fully re-industrializes with new superior domestic made machine tools, Russia's production capability in both civilian and military sectors will jump by a wide margin. Apparently they have at least 40 new advanced machine tool prototypes already:

    The revival of the machine tool industry

    The new infrastructure will not depend on foreign supplies



    Machine tool industry today is highly dependent on foreign supplies,  clustering is designed to solve this problem.

    Over the next three years, the Russian industry must master the production of complex components that were previously imported from abroad. This was stated by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin on the forum " TVM 2014 " . Active import substitution should occur in the machine tool industry as one of the most dependent on foreign supplies of domestic industries. Help solve this important problem can including the Development Fund for Industry, a decree on the creation of which Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed on September 2.

    During Soviet times, with tank-building  was an independent and highly developed industry. According to the Industry and Trade Ministry of Russia, the share of imports in the machine tool industry now exceeds 90%. For comparison: in heavy engineering - 60 - 80%, light industry - 70 - 90%, in the electronic industry - 80 - 90%, in the pharmaceutical and medical industry - 70 - 80%. " Indicator of 50-60% can be achieved In the case of a deliberate policy of import substitution. In some sectors will be able to get out even better performance " , - said Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Sergey Tsyb.

    Over the past 20 years, the domestic market has undergone Engineering Technology quantitative and qualitative changes, the volume of equipment decreased compared with 1991, more than 25 times. In the USSR, machine tools, as the basis for technological independence and technological industrial base DIC received privileged resources: the necessary equipment, materials and supplies. Research institutes sector were equal to the Research Institute of the defense industry under compensation of scientists and engineers, to ensure that R & D funding, etc.



    Today our country has practically ceased production of the main components for the production of machine tools and forging equipment (PAC). Machine tools with numerical control almost completed imported from Germany and Japan, CNC systems, sensors, measuring systems, robots, electrical and electronic products, hydraulic systems, etc. The main suppliers of components are

    According to the CEO of the company " Stankoprom " Sergei Makarov, one of the key problems in the industry is the backwardness of its own production base. Including lost the confidence of the Russian consumers to domestically produced equipment. Lost production culture and prestige of the machine-tool trades, and as a result, we have a shortage of qualified workers.

    " Age of equipment in all industries has considerable wear. Today, 75 - 80% of the park metalworking equipment used for more than 20 years. Since 1991, virtually no change of equipment was conducted or conducted by a factor of updates, no more than 1% per year. In the structure of machinery, presses and only 4.5% in operation less than five years - said Giorgi Samodurov, president of the Russian Association " Stankoinstrument " . - Machine Tool Degradation occurs primarily because of the lack of investment for a long time " . According to the expert, low attractiveness of the industry for domestic investors due to the very low level of profitability (2 - 5%), which is typical for high-tech industries. Foreign investors are not willing to invest in the development of domestic technologies that directly compete with their manufacturers. The only investor in the machine-tool industry, as well as for the defense industry, can only serve the state.

    The tax burden on manufacturers in many countries is much lower than in Russia. " Recently, our contacts with major construction companies operating in Russia inviting them to create a joint venture abut in this problem. They'd better find in our country intermediary to create with them supposedly a joint venture (usually on paper), to find a warehouse here and deliver equipment, finished products, call it made ​​in Russia and ensure yourself a good financial condition. All this is due to the imperfection of our defense mechanisms " , - says Samodurov.



    Clustering in the machine tool industry is still in its initial stage. Perhaps the first powerful cluster in the machine tool industry will be a group of " Stan " , which includes STANKOZAVOD Sterlitamaka, Ryazan, Ivanovo, Kolomna and, presumably, Saratov. Feature of this group is the presence of an integrator in the form of the banking system with the ability to attract resources for technical re-equipment, develop new products, to attract qualified professionals, etc.

    Subject to obtaining bank resources " shoot " can cluster in St. Petersburg. To do this, there are all the prerequisites: the presence of machine-tool industries, companies producing components, highly qualified staff, a significant number of defense enterprises.

    According to Sergei Makarov, " Stankoprom " is considering the establishment of joint enterprises of machine tool, in particular, clusters of machine tool and tool production facilities in several areas of CFD. In late August, " Stankoprom " signed a cooperation agreement with the administration of the Lipetsk region.

    Some support machine tool provided subroutine " The development of domestic machine tool and tool industry for the period 2011 - 2 016 years, " the federal program " National Technological Base " . Program will not only survive the machine tool enterprises, able to develop and manufacture prototypes of about 40 types of equipment. The second phase of the program - from 2014 and 2016 - provides for the development of R & D as well as a number of investment projects designed to re-equipment of individual enterprises. " In our opinion, it is necessary to significantly increase financial support for the machine tool and to provide him with benefits in various areas (subsidies payment of interest on loans, reducing or zeroing certain taxes, etc.). Significant support to the industry can have a government resolution of 24 December 2013 № 1224 on restrictions on the admission of foreign goods to the procurement for the needs of national defense and national security. It is only necessary to adjust the control over its execution, as a discipline of its implementation defense companies is very low " , - concludes George Samodurov.

    Overview of new production: October 2014
    + 20 new productions
    15 - with an investment of 1 billion rubles
    6 - with the participation of foreign investors
    16 - built from scratch

    This is what I will start to comment on for now on, as it is easier than doing it bit by bit. Some isn't mentioned, so I will also add in others.

    Tuapse Refinery, as the ugly duckling became a swan
    In Russia there is a stereotype in the country all production - an outdated legacy of the USSR. In fact, it is certainly not the case for the last 20 years, new businesses build mass. But I want to talk about more interesting example. About the refinery, which of old and inefficient for the shortest time became the most powerful of the South Russian refineries and now, literally, a world level. Practically, the ugly duckling became a swan. And this is a refinery in Tuapse.

    Construction of Moscow’s ‘Moskva-City’ Skyscraper Block to Wrap Up by 2018

    The construction around much of Moscow's International Business Center complex Moskva-City is nearing completion, with the complex set to become fully completed and operational by 2018.

    MOSCOW, December 8 (Sputnik) — Marat Khusnullin, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Urban Policy and Construction, said that the construction around much of Moscow’s International Business Center Moskva-City is wrapping up, and that the complex is set to be fully completed by 2018.

    “We have done a great deal over these past four years,” Khusnullin told Rossiyskaya Gazeta over the weekend following a regular inspection tour of the area.

    Khusnullin explained that in the four year period, several new highway connections were made with the center, three metro stations were opened, and 10 above-ground public transport routes were created. Khusnullin noted that these connections have connected the business center “with virtually the whole of Moscow.”

    A metro trip from the center of Moscow to Moskva-City now takes about 12-15 minutes, a connection has been made to the capital’s Victory Park Memorial Complex off Kutuzovsky Prospekt, and Khusnullin noted that by 2016 more connections will link the territory with two more metro lines, the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya (Yellow) Line to the southeast, and the Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya (Purple) Line to the northwest; the line will also link up with the second ring of the Moscow Metro, which is set to be completed in 2018. An additional road connection running parallel to Kutuzovsky Prospekt will be completed by 2016, shortening the drive between the business district and the MKAD, Moscow’s Ring Road freeway around the city which once demarked its outer border. In addition, the creation and extension of several other roads around the territory is set to improve the traffic situation. Finally, a second station of Moscow’s Little Ring Railway is set to open in the north of the complex, improving the area’s bulk transport infrastructure.

    Moskva-City, originally conceptualized as a complex for companies in the financial services industry, akin to London’s City of London tower block, has been reconceived more recently as a space for nonfinancial companies, as well as small and mid-sized firms. The territory houses numerous multinational companies operating in Russia, including General Electric, General Motors, Hyundai, IBM, and KPMG. However, in light of ever-growing amounts of available space, as well as the current international financial situation, the variety of businesses the complex hopes to attract has evolved. As Dmitri Granov, head of Moskva-City’s management, said earlier, “if before we were looking for international corporations, today we are looking for Russian companies, and small and medium businesses,” the New York Times noted. Today office space in the City costs about $6.90 per square foot per month, making it an attractive offering compared to an average of $7.75 for high grade office space elsewhere in Moscow.

    This year Evolution Tower, which has a unique, DNA-like double helix design, was completed. It was designed by the architecture and design firm RMJM Scotland Limited, which worked in collaboration with Russian architects and builders. The 48-floor, 169,000 square meter project is set to include office space, a shopping center, underground parking, a wedding palace and the Museum of the International Business Center.

    At 95 stories, Federation Tower East, set to be completed next year, will become the tallest building in Europe, surpassing the recently-opened Mercury City Tower, also part of the complex.

    Interesting. Shame the Russia Tower never got built. It actually made it onto the match programme cover of the UEFA Champions League Final.

    I wonder what Moscow City 2 will be like. And whether this will be a next gen version of Moscow City.
    Or whether the planned "offshore financial centre" of Moscow will actually be based there. Finally, I think "edge cities" ie cities built around Moscow will become important too.

    Compared to London's Canary Wharf/Docklands and things like NYC's old WTC, Moscow City has done very well, very quickly.

    In Perm for "Gazprom" created turbines cheaper and more powerful import


    The new gas turbine unit will compete with the one produced under license in the "REP Holding" on the basis of the US turbine General Electric. It will be cheaper than imported counterpart, and higher efficiency.


    UFA, December 9 - RIA Novosti, Ramil Salikhov. Perm designers' "OAO commissioned by" Gazprom "will release gas turbines instead of imported counterpart, which will be higher efficiency and less cost, RIA Novosti reported the press service of the Perm region.

    "" OAO won the tender of "Gazprom" on the development and delivery of a powerful gas turbine unit (STU). Capacity of the new installation will be from 34 to 40 MW. In the next decade, "Gazprom" plans to buy up to 200 such installations. To test the unit is planned in 2017, to start selling - in 2018, "- said the agency representative of the government of the region.

    The new gas turbine unit will compete with the one produced under license in the "REP Holding" on the basis of the US turbine General Electric. It will be cheaper than imported counterpart, and higher efficiency. If American turbine efficiency of 34%, then 39% will Perm.

    In addition, "" OAO in 2017 will provide "Gazprom" gas turbines with a capacity of less than 16-25 MW for the project "The Power of Siberia." The share of the Permian-scale turbines in the gas project is about 70%.

    The department noted that in May 2014 between the governor of Perm Krai Viktor Basargin and Chairman of the Board of OJSC "Gazprom" Alexei Miller signed a cooperation agreement. This is a project to expand the supply of high-tech products and development of Perm enterprises, research institutions and universities the company "Gazprom".

    More than 40 companies are ready to participate in the Kama region cooperation program and make the necessary "Gazprom" products: gas-compressor, tubing and petrochemical equipment, electrical equipment and cables, pipes and insulation materials, gas production equipment, LNG and more.

    Advance section of new Moscow-St Petersburg motorway to open in Moscow region

    MOSCOW, December 23. /TASS/. The advance section of a new motorway linking Moscow and St Petersburg opens in the Moscow region on Tuesday. It covers 43 kilometers of the route, from the fifteenth through to the fifty-eighth kilometer.

    Spokespeople for the Administration of the Russian President said the chief of administration staff, Sergey Ivanov, Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin, and Moscow Region Governor Andrei Vorobyov, officials of the state automobile road company Rosavtodor, and executives of the bridge construction group Mostotrest and VINCI group are expected to attend the official ceremony.

    The opening of even the first section of the M-11 road motorway will mean a considerable alleviation of transport problems for a number of towns and densely populated areas located to the northwest of Moscow City, like Khimki, Dolgoprudny, Skhodnya, and Zelenograd, which is administratively a remote district of Moscow.

    The new road also offers a much easier access to Sheremetyevo airport, the city’s largest air hub.

    The section will be toll-free until next summer when a fee of 4 rubles per kilometer is to be introduced.

    The state corporation Rosavtodor is the ordering customer in the project and the Northwest Concessionary Company co-owned by the French corporation VINCI and the Russian infrastructure group Mostotrest is the contractor.

    The overall cost of the M-11 project effectuated in the form of public-private partnership exceeds 70 billion rubles (about $ 1.3 billion), of which the state has provided 22.8 billion rubles.

    Connection of the M-11 motorway with the Outer Automobile Ring Road, which runs around the outer perimeter of Moscow City within its administrative boundaries prior to 2011, as well with the streets inside Moscow has required construction of new flyovers and interchanges

    M-11 toll road that will run more or less in parallel to the existing M-10 Rossiya federal road will match all the European standards in terms of safety and quality. It will cover a distance of 669 kilometers between Moscow’s Outer Automobile Ring Road and the St Petersburg Ring Motorway.

    Like the old road, new one will cross the territories of the of the Moscow, Tver, Novgorod, and Leningrad regions.

    Free port concept for Vladivostok to be finalized before end of 2015 - Deputy PM Trutnev

    VLADIVOSTOK, January 28. /TASS/. Vladivostok airport or the entire coastal area of Russia’s Primorsky Krai might be transformed into a free port zone. The final strategy of Vladivostok porto-franco is planned to be developed by the end of 2015, Deputy Prime Minister and Presidential Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev said on Wednesday.

    "We have a suggestion to convert the entire seaboard of Primorsky Krai into a free port zone. There are several revolutionary ideas, in particular, transferring the customs clearance zone [to another place] and declaring the entire territory of Vladivostok as a zone free of customs charges, if cargoes will be handled within the city boundaries," Trutnev said.

    The tools and mechanisms of the free port project would, to a certain extent, be in cooperation with advanced development areas and their tax and customs privileges, while the mission of the free port would be "to create attractive conditions on the territory, so that ships will put in here," Deputy PM added.

    The government gives three months for developing the Vladivostok free port strategy, after that it should be reconciled by certain governmental agencies.

    "I expect that we will definitely have developed this mechanism by the end of this year," Trutnev said.

    Previously, Russian President required to grant Vladivostok a free port status, which was a development of one of the main points of the Presidential Address to the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation on December 4, 2014.

    In 11 months of 2014, as much as 14.2 million tons of cargoes passed through Vladivostok seaport, according to Russian Association of Trade Sea Ports. The largest stevedore operating in the port is Vladivostok Trade Sea Port OJSC, a member of the FESCO group owned by Summa group.
