    So Omsk company Irtysh and Chinese company are setting up JV for manufacturing TV's in Russia. This comes after Toshiba moved from the market (they didnt manufacture in Russia but had 10% of the market).  So this is good news too.

    On the other thread the question about the impact of the ruble devaluation was raised. The above points to some of the fallout of this.
    High priced foreign goods vendors are squeezed out of the market and are replaced with cheaper domestic vendors. Nothing stops
    these domestic vendors from forming partnerships with foreign firms. I guess Toshiba couldn't be bothered with localizing production
    in Russia. Too bad for Toshiba.

    Toshiba tried to make the claim that they just didnt have the market. But 10% of the market is quite huge actually. So it is exactly as you said, the Russian/Chinese JV will replace that demand and even capturing 10% of the market is huge, and if they can export, even larger. It is apparently not a company but Chinese government is investing in it in Russia. And apparently public demand or investment (if I got the translation right). Another win for Russia imo.

    Rostov-on-Don airport may be opened morning March 21

    The deputy governor said about 300 square meters of the runway should be repaired

    ROSTOV-ON-DON, March 20. /TASS/. The airport in Rostov-on-Don may be opened before 9 in the morning on Monday, the region’s deputy governor Alexander Grebenschikov told reporters on Sunday.

    Head of Investigative Committee allows runaway cleaned from debris of crashed Boeing

    "We plan to open the airport before 9 in the morning tomorrow," he said.

    The deputy governor said about 300 square meters of the runway should be repaired.

    Earlier on Sunday, Minister of Transport Maxim Sokolov said the main work at the crash site now is carried out by experts of the Investigative Committee and of the Interstate Aviation Committee, who "should approve beginning of repairing work."

    "Today, during the daylight all necessary elements of the plane will be collected for a thorough analysis and for clearing out reasons of the accident," he said. "At about 6p.m. will begin works on the runway and also to restore the equipment, so that the airport could begin working on Monday morning."

    The minister said the damage to the runway was not dramatic and the repairing will take about ten hours.

    At the same time, technical flights have begun already - two planes without passengers on board have left Rostov-on-Don, and four more planes may depart, too.

    On March 19, at 3:42 a.m. Moscow time (0:42 a.m. UTC), FlyDubai’s Boeing 737-800 crashed at Rostov-on-Don’s airport during a second attempt to land in complicated weather conditions (strong side wind and rain). The plane served regular Flight FZ 981 from Dubai. The passenger jet with capacity for 189 passengers had 62 people aboard, including the crew. None has survived.

    The investigation looks into several leads: a pilot error, a technical malfunction, bad weather conditions, and others.

    The new engine KAMAZ P6

    First of all, it is worth noting the high percentage of localization of new KAMAZ P6. Currently, only 25% of the total number of parts and components are foreign purchase. Chief Engineer KAMAZ Fedor Nazarov said that among the foreign products are fuel equipment, which is unique in Russia do not produce, the turbocharger and the camshafts. Negotiations on these names with China, "a sanctions to ensure the stability of the product." KAMAZ also is working with local companies: for camshaft - with the Saratov enterprise "Hammer and Sickle", and is currently a partner Chelny plant.

    When the project started in 2013, according to Fedor Nazarov, it was planned that production will be carried out with use of nearly 100% of components from abroad. Who has made significant strides in this direction: the share of foreign products parts account for 25%. The pool of suppliers for the new engine is 90% of the companies with which KAMAZ works now. In KAMAZ has localized about 100 positions (for example, timing gears and the oil pan, work is underway for the production of pallet made of plastic), 290 - manufactured and will be manufactured at specialized Russian companies.

    Fuel system= injectors and high pressure fuel pumps.

    Without them it is not possible to compete on the US/Japanese/EU market , because that is required to satisfy the emission standards.
    Developőment of the fuel system require two-five years and 60-200 million $

    Then it is possibly good that they purchase it from abroad. I wonder if they may seek a foreign company to eventually open up production locally of those components?

    Russia should stop dicking around. If anything, it can build world class turbochargers. Recall that Russia makes jet engines that
    the Chinese have been unable to reverse engineer since the 1990s. Russian metallurgy is world leading. A freaking turbocharger
    should be a weekend project.

    We see in this case the sort of mess that is afflicting Russian industry. Thanks to comprador drunk Yeltsin and his regime Russian
    manufacturing was nearly destroyed. The Russian banking sector is still distorted thanks to Yeltsin era hives of monetarists who
    sabotage the Russian economy. In the case of turbocharger production what is needed is venture capital and collaboration with
    Russian research institutes. But such startup activity is extremely painful since the banks do not properly serve their roles.

    Well, I imagine that they import certain things in order to be able to export it as well. Russian cars are gaining traction in international sales.

    There is nothing wrong with using imports when it is advantageous. But having the capacity for domestic manufacturing
    of turbochargers is essential since it is a critical component of diesel engines. If Russia wants to be autonomous in
    diesel engine production then it cannot rely on imported turbochargers. And as I said, this is not an engineering challenge
    for Russia. It is a venture startup challenge.

    Developing high pressure fuel pumps and fuel injection systems truly is expencive and quite technologicaly demanding despite what one might thing, however 200 million is kinda way too much. Maybe if you include R&D plus all possible auxilary expenditures that would anyways happen.

    When its about diesel injection and distribution pumps Bosch is the world leader no question about it, half of the world actually does not have other word for high pressure fuel pumps than "Bosh pump", here everyone calls them that way.

    It is not just the pump, Euro six require more than five independent injection, same of them cubic mm size, so actualy the pump itself is not the most complicated/expensive, but the controling valves for the injector.
    Same company using pieso electric material to control the injection timing and volume.

    But the E6 is not magic, in the of road/marine applications every company happy to use twenty years old, or older technology (there is no emission standard for these).
    Cheaper, emission is not as good, but economy is OK.

    However to invest into automotive industry makes sense currently if the country willing to use cusotoms to protect the market.


    China has same serious overcapacity in the heavy duty truck business ,ahs enought overcapacity to manufacture turbo chargers and injectors to cover the demand of US & EU & Japan.

    It is Euro 2 standard mainly.

    Quite interesting development for LNG powered Freight Train http://sdelanounas.ru/blogs/78943/

    Gas turbine GT1h-002 and 2TE116-1428 locomotive with a freight train weighing 9,000 tons




    The first serial Russian locomotive that runs on liquefied natural gas (LNG) - gas turbine main innovation GT1h-002 - made a trip to the experimental section of Surgut - Voinovka Sverdlovsk railway. Gas turbine locomotive covered the distance of 700 km with a load of 9000 Tons without refueling. This is reported in the service of Public Relations and Mass Media LLC "Gazprom Transgas Ekaterinburg" (CTUs). After completing the route in his tank left about 2.2 out of 20 tons of fuel. This confirmed the possibility of exploiting gas engine technology in the northern direction of the Sverdlovsk Railway electrified organization without intermediate gas stations ", - reported the press service of the company.

    Putin establishes council for Russia’s strategic development

    The Russian president will head the new council, his deputy will become PM Medvedev

    MOSCOW, June 30. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has established a Council for the country’s strategic development and priority projects, according to the presidential decree posted on the Kremlin’s website on Thursday.

    The head of the Russian state will personally head the Council while Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev will be his deputy.
    17th Council in the Kremlin

    As Putin’s decree says, the Council is "a deliberative body" and has been established to ensure interaction among various levels of power "in the consideration of issues related to Russia’s strategic development and the implementation of priority projects."

    "The Council for Strategic Development and Priority Projects has been established for the purposes of improving the activity for the strategic development of the Russian Federation and the implementation of priority projects," the Kremlin press office said.

    The presidential decree to establish a new Council thus abolishes two other such bodies: the Council for the Implementation of Priority National Projects and Demographic Policy and the Council for Housing Policy and Better Affordability of Housing.

    Therefore, 17 such deliberative bodies have remained in the Kremlin instead of the previous 18 Councils, excluding the State Council and the Security Council.

    Idea origination


    President Putin announced the idea of creating the presidential Council for Strategic Development and Priority Projects at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum on June 17.

    According to the president, the Council should deal with key projects aimed at implementing structural changes in the economy and the social sphere and increasing economic growth rates, including the projects intended to raise labor productivity, improve the business environment, provide assistance to small and medium business and support exports.

    According to the presidential decree, the new Council is also assigned the task "to determine key parameters for drawing up the list of priority projects and programs in the basic areas of Russia’s strategic development."

    Council composition

    "The Council’s Presidium shall be formed to deal with the current issues of the Council’s activity," the presidential decree says.

    According to the decree, the chairman of the Russian government will be chairman of the Council Presidium.

    The Presidium "shall draw up the list of priority projects and programs and evaluate their implementation, and set up bodies for the governance of priority projects and programs," the decree says.

    The Council will hold sessions no less than once a quarter while the Presidium will convene at least monthly, the decree reads.

    Aside from Putin as the Council chairman and Medvedev as his deputy, the new deliberative body will include, in particular, presidential economic aide Andrei Belousov, Audit Chamber Head Tatiana Golikova, First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov, Deputy Prime Ministers Olga Golodets, Arkady Dvorkovich, Dmitry Kozak, Sergei Prikhodko, Dmitry Rogozin, Yuri Trutnev and Alexander Khloponin, Deputy Chairman of the presidential Economic Council and former Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin, Speakers of the upper and lower houses of Russia’s parliament Valentina Matviyenko and Sergei Naryshkin, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov, Economic Development Minister Alexei Ulyukayev, presidential envoys in Russia’s federal districts, representatives of the business community and experts.

    Council and the budget

    Russia’s draft budget for 2017 and for the three-year period should take into account the priorities, which the Council for Strategic Development will work out, Prime Minister Medvedev said.

    "After the Council’s session [in July], we’ll hold a session of its Presidium to discuss how to build this work and link the activity within projects with the new federal budget drafting," Medvedev said.

    Work within the implementation of priority projects should be taken into account in the process of drafting a new budget, he added.

    According to the premier, the Council will also formulate specific goals and indicators of the efficiency of priority projects required for the dynamic development of the Russian economy.

    "It will be necessary to work out together with regions, the business community and experts specific goals and indicators and, of course, projects, on which we’ll be working," the premier said.

    According to the premier, the priority areas should include efforts to create favorable conditions for small business, support exports other than raw materials, develop mortgage lending, housing rent, the housing and utilities sector and the urban environment.

    "And, of course, work will be continued on health care and education, the improvement of the situation in single-industry towns and the development of a modern network of roads," Medvedev said.

    Also, some additional projects may be developed to focus on labor productivity, the creation of highly productive workplaces, the improvement of controlling and supervisory work and the environmental activity, the Russian premier said.

    As Prime Minister Medvedev said at a government meeting, the Council for Strategic Development will hold its first session in July "to determine basic areas, on which efforts should be concentrated."

    Russian Gov't Approves Plans to Build 11 New Nuclear Power Units by 2030

    The Russian government approved on Tuesday plans to construct 11 new nuclear power reactors by 2030, including two commercial power units with fast-breeder BN-1200 reactors in the Urals and Russia’s first modern medium-capacity nuclear power reactor at the Kolskaya-2 nuclear power plant, it said in the decree published on its official website.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The list does not include the power units already under construction at Rostov NPP, Novovoronezh NPP, Leningrad NPP-2, floating NPP Akademik Lomonosov, Kursk NPP-2 and Kaliningrad NPP.

    Russia plans to build one BN-1200 reactor at Beloyarsk NPP and the South Urals NPP.

    Fast breeders, such as the cutting-edge BN-1200, a 1200-megawatt reactor, use a liquid metal heat-transfer agent as a coolant. Fast neutron reactors significantly minimize radioactive waste and expand the range of fuel used at nuclear power plants.

    According to the experts, the fast reactors are most effective when used as part of a dual-component system combined with thermal neutron reactors and not on their own.

    Only a few countries possess fast neutron reactor technology, with Russia leading in this field. Such reactors are believed to be able to significantly improve the safety of the nuclear power industry as well as making it more competitive.

    In 2015, Russia launched a controlled nuclear fission at the Beloyarsk NPP BN-800 fast breeder reactor using a liquid metal heat-transfer agent as a coolant, which is considered a prototype of the BH-1200.

    Also according to the plan, a nuclear power unit, comprising a facility to produce high-density uranium-plutonium neutron fuel and a fast neutron reactor with a closed on-site nuclear fuel cycle, called the BREST-OD-300, should be constructed by 2025. The power unit will be included in the Proryv (Breakthrough) project which is focused on developing technologies to close the fuel cycle.

    Russia’s first medium-capacity nuclear power reactor — the WWER-600 developed by Gidropress OKB — is expected to become operational at the Kolskaya-2 nuclear power plant in Russia’s north.

    Interest in small- and medium-capacity nuclear power reactors has increased in recent years and is driven both by a desire to reduce the impact of capital costs and to generate power away from large grid systems, especially in remote areas where it is difficult to deliver other types of fuel.

    It was reported earlier that the Kola Peninsula was selected as the location of the new power reactor because major investment projects will be implemented in this territory.

    In total, seven WWER-TOI (V-510) nuclear reactors are planned to be finished by 2030.

    According to the information provided by its developer Gidropress OKB, the WWER-TOI has a standard optimized and informatized design with the WWER reactor having an estimated output capacity of 1250 MW.

    Two reactors are planned to be build at Smolensk NPP-2, Nizhny Novgorod NPP, Kostroma NPP and one at Tatar NPP.

    First international flight arrives from Minsk at Moscow's newest airport

    Zhukovsky International Airport was officially opened in May

    MOSCOW, September 12. /TASS/. Moscow’s fourth and newest international airport in the city of Zhukovsky in the Moscow region, has received its first flight from the Belarusian capital of Minsk, a TASS correspondent reported.

    An official at the airport told TASS that the flight was conducted by the Belarusian national airline, Belavia. The Boeing 737-300 aircraft with 133 passengers onboard landed at the airfield, and 88 passengers are expected on the return flight.

    "Belavia planned to use an Embraier 175 aircraft for flying to Zhukovsky, but due to a higher demand for tickets it replaced it with airliners with a larger seat capacity," the official said.

    Zhukovsky International Airport was officially opened in May. Currently, Minsk is the only international destination one can fly to from the new airport.

    Earlier an official with Belavia told TASS that the Belarusian air carrier will continue flights to Minsk also from the Domodedovo airport.

    According to the data on the Belavia website, a flight to Zhukovsky International Airport will cost nearly half that of a flight from the Domodedovo airport. For example, on September 12, the cheapest price for one of the five flights to Minsk via Domodedovo was 50-85 euros while the same flight via Zhukovsky costs 30 euros.

    Earlier, several Russian air carriers stated their intention to launch flights from the Zhukovsky airfield, among them are Ural airlines, Yamal and Wim-Avia. They have already received licenses from the interdepartmental commission at the Transport Ministry to conduct regular international flights from Zhukovsky. The air carriers plan to fly to Austria, Germany, Bulgaria, Hungary, China, Czech Republic as well as Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan.

    A Yamal Airline official told TASS that the air carrier plans to start flights from the Zhukovsky International Airport in October.

    Spetsstroy, the Russian government national construction agency to be disbanded. The Vostochniy FUBAR was the last straw apparently for VP. The Military will take over control of it's own Construction activities by mid 2017.

    RZD launches new passenger service between Moscow, Berlin

    For time being, the trains will be cruising twice a week




    MOSCOW, December 17. /TASS/. Russia’s state railway corporation RZD is launching new trains between Moscow and Berlin. The first such train under the brand name Swift is to start from Moscow’s Kursky railway station on Saturday at 13:05 Moscow Standard Time.

    The operator of the upgraded service is the Federal Passenger Company, an RZD subsidiary. For time being, the trains will be cruising twice a week, leaving Moscow on Saturday and Sundays and Berlin, on Sundays and Mondays.

    They will make stops in Smolensk, Orsha, Minsk, Brest, Terespol, Warsaw, Poznan, Rzepin, and Frankfurt an der Oder.

    The coaches manufactured by the Spanish company Patentes Talgo S.L. are equipped with a system for an automatic changeover of the width of mounted wheels. This enables to slash considerably the time that trains spend in Brest during the replacement of mounted wheels for the 1,520 mm ‘Russian’ track gauge with the ones for the 1,435 mm European track gauge.

    As a result, the travelers will spend 20 hrs 14 mins en route between Moscow and Berlin instead of the 24 hrs 49 mins they have been spending so far.
