    Russian Titanium Valley

    Post  sepheronx on Fri Jul 12, 2013 4:07 pm

    Special Thanks to Viktor for pointing out this project to me



    Wiki on Titanium Valley

    Titanium Valley is a planned special economic zone in Sverdlovsk Oblast in the Urals Federal District of Russia, which will focus on creating titanium products for the aircraft, automotive, shipbuilding and medical industries. It will be created around the world's largest titanium producer, VSMPO-Avisma.[1] The Russian government plans to invest at least 40 billion rubles ($1.29 billion) for the project.[2]
    The purpose of the special economic zone, to be located in the city of Verkhnyaya Salda, is to give enterprises the opportunity to develop and produce value added products in the region and bring international partners to the zone.[2] A total of 20 companies will participate in the project, and it is expected to create 20,000 jobs in the city.[1] The participating companies include VSMPO-Avisma, Arvi, SR Systematics, MAG[disambiguation needed], and United Aircraft Corporation. Companies operating in the zone will enjoy preferential tax treatment,[3] and Governor of Sverdlovsk Oblast Aleksandr Misharin has stated that he expects the incentives to enable the companies to produce globally competitive products and create new jobs.[4]
    While visiting the region, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said on 13 November 2010 that a decree for creating the special economic zone will be signed in two weeks.[2] Titanium maker VSMPO-Avisma has already spent $700 million in preparation, and Russia's leading pipe producer ChelPipe has also already spent over $630 million into modernizing its facilities.[5] Foreign companies considering to create production facilities in the zone include Rolls-Royce Group and Goodrich Corporation.[1]
    The "Titanium Valley" project is part of Russia's ongoing effort to modernise and diversify its economy, one of the main programs of Dmitry Medvedev's presidency.[2]
    Titanium Valley is a special economic zone of industrial type, located in Sverdlovsk region. Priority directions of the SEZ are: titanium metal products, machinery for all industries (production of means of production, manufacture of components), construction materials, and chemical industry. The special economic zone is located in Verkhnyaya Salda - 40 km away from Nizhni Tagil and 180 km away from Ekaterinburg. One of the largest producers of the semi – processed materials from titanium alloys, designed for the airspace - “VSMPO – AVISMA” is located nearby. That is what defined a choice of the name for the special economic zone.

    From Economy.gov.ru

    Sverdlovsk Region, Titanium Valley
    Titanium Valley Special Economic Zone is located in the territory of Sverdlovsk oblast.

    • mechanic engineering,

    • mechanical processing,

    • aircraft engineering,

    • chemical industry,

    • pharmaceutical industry,

    The main transport, engineering and social infrastructure facilities will be created at the expense of the regional budget, as well as at the expense of off-budgetary sources.

    Latest News I Could Find

    MOSCOW, May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Russia has plenty of natural resources to offer to the global market, but recently the country started promoting its new and exciting product – consumers. With population topping 140 million people, Russia has always been an attractive market, subject to the poor economic climate and other barriers. In 2012 and 2013, however, Russian government formed 'special economic zones' – business and industrial hubs aimed at creating 'entry points' for global companies that incorporate production capacity, abundant natural resources, labor pool, infrastructure, tax incentives, and access to the consumer market.

    The Titanium Valley, one of the 'special economic zones' is located in the Urals, Russia's industrial and mining heartland. The region is home to the world's largest titanium production facilities; titanium is an essential material widely used in aircraft manufacturing and other industries. The special economic zone, by attracting major Russian and Western aerospace corporations, is creating a unique industrial hub similar to Seattle. Major aerospace companies, like Boeing, VSMPO-AVISMA, and other companies became the residents of the Titanium Valley.

    In a roundtable hosted by the economic zone's management in Hannover during the 2013 Hannover Messe, Titanium Valley's CEO Artemiy Kyzlasov said that the hub is becoming an entry point into Russia for multinational corporations: "It has tax breaks and customs relief, optimization of logistics and excellent skilled labor potential. We are not only interested in investment in the region, but rather in a system for integrating international manufacturing in the region's infrastructure, with every new special economic zone resident creating benefits for the other residents, developing and enhancing the production chain. Both the regional and federal governments support this. You could say that we are building an aviation and manufacturing Hollywood here, where all the industry players – directors, actors, models, screenwriters – are concentrated in one area, educating one another."

    doing so, Russia intends to become transit country of Chinese and Japan goods on their way to EU and vice verse making big money in the process while at the

    same time developing Far East infrastructure.

    Trans-Siberian Railway getting new lease on life

    Same thing can be said about Northern Sea route. As ice melts it is becoming more and more attractive to shipping companies to use this route and Russia is expanding port and cargo/logistic to accommodate ever-increasing shipping.

    It will take years for it to show profits though. Many of these industries either just opened or are going to open up in the next few years, so by 2020 we may see a major change.

    Dvorkovich: RZD's investment may increase by 1.5 times

    http://www.itar-tass.com/c16/809961.html

    The investment program of Russian Railways in the medium term could rise by 1.5 times. This was stated by Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich at a meeting on the development of the steel industry. "In general, RZD's investment may increase by about 1.5 times over the medium term", - he said.

    In June, the newspaper "Vedomosti" reported on the government to reduce the sentence of Railways investment program up to 2018, from 5.7 trillion to 2.7 trillion rubles. These funds will be sufficient to fund key projects monopoly - the construction of port infrastructure, and the development of the Baikal-Amur and Trans-Siberian Railway. The sources of finance, the Government proposed the use of the National Welfare Fund, Pension Fund, the budget, as well as equity and debt Railways.

    Through the issuance of infrastructure bonds to finance the planned upgrade of locomotive fleet, the construction of railway lines to the Elga coal deposit, branches Mezhdurechensk - Taishet and construction of bypass Krasnodar.

    At BAM and Trans-Siberian Railway planned to send 260 billion from the budget. The remaining costs will fund a monopoly at the expense of equity and debt.

    In the investment program does not include the costs of high-speed railway. Only highway Moscow - Kazan will cost 928 billion rubles. This was announced at the end of May, the head of Russian Railways Vladimir Yakunin. 650 billion rubles of this amount is expected to be allocated from the budget.

    Railways introduced the investment program for 2012-2020 in June last year. How, then, said the vice-president of the monopoly Vadim Mikhailov, the company is willing to finance only 3.8 trillion rubles of this amount. The government opposed the allocation of budgetary resources, pointing out that the company has a 100-percent state participation itself is capable to attract borrowed funds.

    November 12, 2012 the Russian government approved the overall Railways investment program for the period up to 2015 in the amount of more than 1 trillion rubles . Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said at the time that the investment budget of Railways in 2013 - more than 400 billion rubles, and for three years - more than $ 1 trillion. "This money will be spent on the development of the railway infrastructure, security services, the improvement of transport accessibility for citizens and rolling stock. Course, the money is not enough to solve the problems facing the industry. We expect that the program as a whole will be more ambitious take into account the needs of the economy in a dynamic and innovative development of railway transport, "- he stressed.

    Kaliningrad Amber Factory




    Which produces amber jewelry
    In ancient times a small amber jewelry worth more than the young slave, because the delivery of stone to Rome along the Amber path was difficult and dangerous. Up until modern times amber was mined by hand - in places where the deposits of "sun stone" comes to the surface. It was only in 1781, on the Baltic coast near the village of Palmniken (now Amber) was laid the first mine of amber extraction industrially. Its depth was about 30 meters - the height of a ten-modern home. Later became amber mine open pit quarries.


    Half a million spiders
    After the Great Patriotic War of Königsberg region (East Prussia) went to the Soviet Union and was renamed Kaliningrad region. In 1947, on the basis of the deposit was created PalmnikenskogoKaliningrad Amber Factory. work began with the restoration of the old German quarry flooded at the end of the war. And in 1949, the plant produced 309 tons of "sun stone", which corresponds to the weight of 22 T-34 tanks.

    In the late 50's. Kaliningrad amber began to extract hydro way: the top layer of rocks that do not contain anything of value, bilge pump, and the lower the pipeline went to the factory.
    Over time, the old field Palmnikenskoe fail. In 1972, work began on the sand beach nearby area. Its development was saved from total collapse plant, because here the cost of production was much lower. In an average year is unloaded 500-600 tons of stone. Work on the sand beach area stopped only December 14, 2003
    Since its start, the Kaliningrad Amber Factory not only was shipping raw amber, but also produced jewelry.
