    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).

    Long-overdue thin-film solar site launched in Chuvashia
    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.

    Development Projects of Russia: Industry, Energy and Infastructure - Page 6 Empty Excellent article on Russia's re-industrialization.

    Post  magnumcromagnon on Sun Oct 19, 2014 4:50 pm

    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

    Development Projects of Russia: Industry, Energy and Infastructure - Page 6 RIAN_02460320_HR_ru_588

    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.

    Development Projects of Russia: Industry, Energy and Infastructure - Page 6 14_IMG_8813

    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.

    Development Projects of Russia: Industry, Energy and Infastructure - Page 6 1_DSC_8382_944_588

    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.

    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.

    Russia to launch economic projects in Far East in 2015 — presidential envoy

    The government carried out enormous work to prepare the projects aimed at spurring the region’s social and economic development, Deputy Prime Minister Yury Trutnev said

    VLADIVOSTOK, February 2. /TASS/. The Russian government will start implementing economic projects in the country’s Far East in 2015, Deputy Prime Minister and Presidential Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Yury Trutnev said on Monday.

    The government carried out enormous work to prepare the projects aimed at spurring the region’s social and economic development, Trutnev said.

    "We engaged, first of all, in preparing a framework for development: we elaborated legislation, worked on the budget for the allocation of budget funds. The implementation of specific economic projects will begin already this year," the government official said.

    "Work will begin on creating advanced development territories and new enterprises," Trutnev said following a meeting with governors of Far Eastern regions in the Pacific port city of Vladivostok.

    "The Russian Far East is today ahead of all other federal districts in Russia by the growth rates of industrial production. At the same time, we need to work well on further accelerating rather than slowing economic growth rates," the vice-premier said.

    Industrial output in the Russian Far Eastern regions grew by 5.9% in 2014, the best result among all federal districts in Russia, Trutnev said. "The industrial production index totaled 5.9% in the region. This is the first place among the federal districts," the presidential envoy said.

    Russia’s advanced development territories

    The Russian Far East and single-industry towns will enjoy tax incentives to boost their social and economic development, according to a law on advanced development territories passed by the State Duma, the lower house of Russia’s parliament, in late December.

    The law stipulates that advanced development territories will be established for a term of 70 years, which may be prolonged, if necessary.

    Within three years after the law comes into force, advanced development territories will appear in the Russian Far East, and also in single-industry towns with the tensest social and economic situation included in the government’s list.

    Subsequently, advanced development territories may be established in other Russian regions.

    Advanced development territories will offer privileged terms for entrepreneurial and other activity. Specifically, the law stipulates reduced rent rates, priority connection to infrastructure facilities and free customs zone procedures.

    Advanced development territories in towns that inherited single industries from the Soviet period will be offered special legal frameworks relating to tax incentives, state control and reduced social security tax payments.

    Russia expects foreign investors in any spheres of the economy but will prioritize projects in power engineering, ship-building and infrastructure development, Trutnev said earlier.

    Discussions are going on to set up a Hungarian bus manufacturing plant in Russia
    Hungarian and Russian businessmen discussing ways to form a joint venture to manufacture Hungarian designed buses in Russia told the CEO and owner of Evopro group Csaba Mészáros to MTI.
    The president said Russian Nano Composite Technology Centre (NCC) and Evopro was in discussion to form a joint venture to manufacture Evopro developed buses in Russia. Moscow city government might provide loan to the joint venture, and it also promised to buy at least 200 Evopro buses in the next ten years.
    Interfax-Kazakhstan news agency reported on Tuesday that the Hungarian company also planning to build an Evopro bus manufacturing plant in Western Kazakhstan; the company currently holding discussions on setting up a joint venture agreement with Uralskargoremmas group of Kazakhstan.
    Evapro is planning to introduce a prototype of the Evapro bus based on Russian standards at the Yekaterinburg fair on July 12, 2015 said the president of the company
    The Hungarian company designed a unique lightweight bus made of composite and associated materials.
    Russia composite center to produce FRP buses
    The first batch of 50 buses will be produced in 2015.
    Production of composite modules via vacuum infusion, RTM, and long fiber injection will be powered by the Nanotechnological Center of Composites, and the bus parts will be sent to Hungary for final assembly, including installation of engine, chassis, gluing in glasses and installation of other elements.
    "A modular approach allows the production of wide range of vehicles in the most cost-effective way, from compact and manoeuvrable buses and trolley buses, which could be compared to mini-buses, to capacious multi-section buses and trolley buses,” said Csaba Meszaros, president of Evopro Group. “Apart from properties of the body, clients will be able to choose type of propulsion system: a bus can run on diesel, CNG or electricity.”
    Not clear how much production will be at each site, possibly the RU and Kazakh sites could even cooperate...?

    This is the site of the Hungarian company which does engineering work & subcontracting in broad areas: http://www.evopro.hu/eng

    That was my same thoughts, German elites can't have it both ways, the Chinese investment advantage comes from the fact that there's rarely any political strings attached to their deals, hence why I hope China wins the tender...

    The arrogance... I remember how all these CEOs were talking about "respecting the rule of law" when the sanctions hit Russia. Now that there's a 5,7 billion dollar investment they are suddenly interested. The Germans expect Russia to simply bend over and take it with a smile. How is the training facility coming along in Russia which was supposed to be built by Rheinmetall? Yeah that's what I thought.

    The Russians can exploit Siemens' interest. Force Siemens to localize the production of the high speed trains by AT LEAST 50%. If they don't like it then they should be told to stick that deal where the sun doesn't shine. I fully agree that the Chinese should be given preference.

    Other great news from Russia: http://sdelanounas.ru/blogs/62099/

    Kazan (Tatarstan) just opened a brand new factory for producing composite materials (carbon fibre). Major points:

    -Production of composite materials in Russia will increase by fourfold thanks to this new factory.
    -In 2025 this factory alone will be able to cover 7% of global demand.

    It seems to me that Kazan is one of the fastest growing cities in Russia with high tech. industries.

    I know I should be updating this thread more, as there is always news in regards to new major enterprises/factories in Russia (none of the news touch basis on the small manufacturers or medium ones (rarely) because they don't get the same media attention as the large ones do), but I was getting tired of being the only one posting here.  So I will keep updating every now and then when the bigger news comes.  Which one is today:

    Came into operation 59th plant RUSNANO
    In Volgograd a plant portfolio company RUSNANO JSC "Nikomag for the production of nanostructured magnesium hydroxide (effective flame retardant),high-purity magnesium oxide (used in the manufacture of transformer steel and rubber products) and magnesium chloride used in the oil and gas extraction,production of building materials and the de-icing of structures and mechanisms of various materials.
    This is the 59th RUSNANO project in the field of nanotechnology industry. The plant's products has high potential for import substitution and demand on the global market.
    Company ZAO "Nikomag, part of the group "NIKOCHEM", is a joint project of the company "Kaustik", RUSNANO and Sberbank of Russia. The total project budget is 3.8 billion of which the share of RUSNANO — 1.3 billion rubles.
    By the time of plant design capacity, the release of magnesium hydroxide will be 25 thousand tons per year, magnesium oxide — 30 thousand tons per year.

    Very important, as Russia is one of the largest producers of electrical steel but relied heavily upon importing the magnesium oxide and magnesium hydroxide for the development of electrical steel, and now this plant will produce it all at home.  Since Russia is dramatically growing in exportation of electrical equipment and other energy equipment, this is huge news and could generate a ton of money.

    Russia's Asian Pivot: Vladivostok Free Port to Bolster Russo-Asian Ties

    Russia opens its arms to Asia, notes Australian scholar Salvatore Babones, referring to the Kremlin law, establishing a "free port" in Vladivostok; the legislation will come into force on October 12, 2015.

    Russia's unique geographical position allows the country to develop political and economic ties with both Europe and Asia. So far, the Kremlin has signaled it is determined to use this unbeatable advantage facilitating the development of the Far East region: on July 13, 2015 Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a legislation establishing Vladivostok Free Port.

    "As Europe increasingly turns inward (and away from Russia), the countries of northeast Asia are turning ever more outward. Asia may turn out to be much more receptive to Russian business than Europe ever was," Associate Professor of Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Sydney Salvatore Babones noted.

    Indeed, the Russian city of Vladivostok which is located 4,000 miles away from Moscow is much closer to the East than to the West.

    The Kremlin's project provides the locals with significant tax advantages and makes the Far East region especially attractive to foreign investors, particularly from China, Japan and South Korea.

    It is worth mentioning that in 2012 Moscow spent around $20 billion to bolster the region's infrastructure in preparation for the 2012 APEC summit.

    In accordance with the law, the free port will operate for 70 year-period, bringing together 15 cities located near Vladivostok in the Primorsky region. The legislation also envisages possible extension of this time period.

    Key advantages for the free port territory include the free customs zone, a favorable tax regime, and most notably a simplified visa regime. The law stipulated that the Vladivostok Free Port project is aimed at developing the region's infrastructure, manufacturing competitive goods for the Asia-Pacific markets, as well as improving the living standards in the Far East region.

    The Vladivostok Free Port will comprise four zones, namely an industrial zone, a scientific-promotional zone, a tourist zone and port and airport.

    "A visa on arrival — even if only for a week — will do much to improve Russia's prospects of integrating its Pacific territories with the rest of northeast Asia," the Australian scholars noted.

    According to Babones, a simplified visa regime "will make it easier for schools, universities, and businesses of all kinds to attract international visitors and international staff." The looser visa regime will bring in foreign management specialists and technical consultants.

    "Head offices will be able to visit the local branch without advance warning. Businesspeople will be more willing to relocate to Russia if their families can visit anytime," Babones noted.

    The move will also contribute a lot to Russia's openness to the world, the scholar believes.

    "The Russian Far East, 4,000 miles away from Moscow and sitting at the juncture of China, Korea, and Japan, may be the best place for Russia to open first," Salvatore Babones concluded.

    It is huge. So far 3D printing has been mostly about creating plastic parts. If they can control the metal crystal structure to
    assure the strength of the turbine blades then they have gone far. I can see a layered formation approach becoming superior
    to the casting process of the past. Pouring metal into a mold and having it cool has the problem of non-uniform cooling from the
    outside which creates micro-fractures and compromises the strength of the part.

    What would be really cool is printing CPUs. The laser etching system being developed with Rusnano funding is in this category
    of technology.
