    I think this dark red or brown colour is actually good contrast to white snow, so it will be visible from safe distance. In night time it will be for sure well enlighted to be seen from safe distance. Noone want to colide with NPP.

    And with something this cool you want it to stick out.

    Well, I think it would be kinda hot... Twisted Evil

    I expect a sort of pier to attach the vessel to land with it sitting out in the water that includes power cables and water pipes to carry electricity and hot water to the port settlement...

    I would expect it also is covered in lights so its presence is not mistaken or forgotten.... just so the local boats don't run in to her or her pier...

    Murmansk Region’s first advance-development territory welcomes new residents


    The new residents are companies Rolt Nord Service and UMPTEK, which implement the ski cluster projects


    MURMANSK, May 16. /TASS/. Two new residents with projects worth 58.5 million rubles ($950,000) joined the Kirovsk advance-development territory in the Murmansk Region, the city administration’s press service said.

    "The advance-development territory in Kirovsk was organized about a year ago," the press service quoted Kirovsk’s Head of Administration Sergey Svinin as saying. "In 2017, three companies began working there, and another two residents have joined the territory in 2018."
    Service and explosives

    The new residents are companies Rolt Nord Service and UMPTEK, which implement the ski cluster projects. Their investments would make 58.54 million rubles. The projects will offer 88 new jobs.

    The earlier residents are at different stages of implementing their investment projects. One of the companies, called Kompleks, working on complex utilization of ammunition, has prepared necessary paperwork. Another company, Reman, is still working on paperwork for a service center. A resident Nitro Sibir Zapolyarye has finished building a facility, where it will produce emulsion explosives - the company has practically reached the projected capacity.
    Benefits for residents

    Kirovsk’s official told earlier, the territory’s residents enjoy certain advantages. First of all, tax benefits. They have to pay much lower social and income taxes, may be not liable for land and property taxes.

    At the same time, the residents, seeking preferences, have to meet certain conditions. For example, investments in a project should be not less than 5 million rubles ($80,800) during the first year and should offer at least 20 new jobs. Another condition is the project should be absolutely new. However, the official said, many businesses would want to become residents, and thus the city would initiate making changes to the list of requirements.

    The general concept for Kirovsk’s development consists of two directions - a tourist cluster and a service center for mining equipment.

    Mountains are waiting for tourists

    According to the regional government, the Khibiny tourist-recreational cluster is the biggest tourist investment project in the Murmansk Region. It is a public-private partnership. Private money is invested in recreational and cultural facilities, while the budget’s investments are in infrastructures.

    The project has received the federal support. Private investments will make 75%, and three-quarters of the remaining sum will be allocated from the federal budget and the rest - from the regional budget.

    The opening and key project in making the Khibiny tourist-recreational cluster was the ski center in Kirovsk, where investments in the cableway are more than 500 million rubles ($8 million). The cableway serves 2,400 people an hour.

    The ski complex is still under construction. Soon, there will appear an ice arena, a leisure center and a spa hotel.

    Service center

    The developing mining industrial cluster in Kirovsk will have a big service center for the equipment, which the region’s mining companies - more than ten - are using. As the mining companies in the Murmansk Region use similar equipment, and the production is growing, the market of equipment services is rather stable. Besides, Kirovsk is situation in the Kola Peninsula’s center, the city’s labor and energy costs are attractive for a center of the kind.

    The project will also attract small and medium businesses to production of equipment, technologies and services for the mining industry. The project thus will localize the mining equipment’s service, making the process more effective.

    The floating nuclear power plant "Academician Lomonosov" arrived in Murmansk

    As reported on May 19, 2018 by the Department of Information and Public Relations of Rosenergoatom Concern, the world's only floating nuclear power plant, "Academician Lomonosov", was successfully moored in Murmansk, on the FSUE Atomflot (a subsidiary of Rosatom). Thus, the first stage of the towing of the nuclear ship from St. Petersburg, where its construction was conducted, to the place of its main basing - to the city of Pevek (ChAO) was successfully completed.

    Historical moment. Last night Crimea Bridge welcomed the first trucks!

    "The 19-kilometer-long bridge, connecting the Crimean Peninsula with Russia’s mainland, was unveiled in May, becoming the longest one in Europe.

    The first trucks, loaded with milk, meat products and construction materials, arrived in Crimea via the brand-new Kerch Strait Bridge, the information center "Crimean Bridge" reported on Monday.

    At midnight, the authorities lifted truck restrictions on the new section of the A-290 highway along the Crimean bridge that had been introduced for the high holiday season.

    Over the first eight hours, more than 700 trucks went across the bridge.

    "Among the first to pass from the mainland to the peninsula were refrigerated trucks with milk and meat products, as well as semis with building materials. Cars with products for the wine-making enterprises of Crimea drove in the opposite direction," the report said.

    All railroad pillars of the Crimean Bridge are now finished (Nov.12, 2018). 307 structures and over, 160 000 tons of metallic structures.

    "Titanic work has been carried out. Thousands of piles for these supports are submerged to a great depth: in some areas — more than 100 meters. Difficult soil and frequent storms strongly complicated work, but were able to do qualitatively and in time".

    The land around it doesn't seem to be getting much use anyway... you could easily put in some spuds and some corn, so the solar panels are not in the way really.

    The not so arable land with permafrost soil could still host 'Green Skyscrapers', and could partner with countries to produce food for countries and grab niche markets with little difficulty and backlash from local farmers in foreign countries. I could see countries like India, Egypt, Venezuela, Turkey, etc. partnering where much of the produce is bought by said countries, and given to poorer citizens of those nations threw good will and subsidy programs, to support strategic national stability. Take Egypt, the whole Arab Spring turmoil was largely caused by the nullification of their bread/grain subsidy. The Egyptian govt. could definitely get behind this program.

    Russia's Nornickel To Invest Over $12Bln To Boost Production - President

    NOVO-OGARYOVO (Moscow Region) (UrduPoint news / Sputnik - 10th December, 2018) -The Russian mining and metallurgical company Nornickel intends to invest more than $12 billion to develop production over the next five years, the company's head, Vladimir Potanin, said on Monday.
    "We are currently implementing a fairly unprecedented investment program: over the next five years, we will invest more than $12 billion to boost production. It is very important, as for many years we have been guided by the strategy of maintaining current production volumes," Potanin said at the meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    Along with nickel and copper, the company is close to produce the record volumes of palladium and platinum, which are in high demand in the market due to the tightening environmental requirements, Potanin pointed out.

    He added that the task of maintaining the current volumes of production was becoming increasingly challenging due to decreasing concentration of metal in the ore, however the new investment program would help the company to switch to the strategy of growth.

    According to Potanin, the program is expected to step up metal production by 20-25 percent, while the volume of extracted ore will have to be increased by 50 percent.

    How the New Silk Roads are merging into Greater Eurasia

    Russia is keen to push economic integration with parts of Asia and this fits in with China's Belt and Road Initiative

    Development Projects of Russia: Industry, Energy and Infastructure - Page 11 2017-05-22T073255Z_1591215509_RC1E38802780_RTRMADP_3_CHINA-SILKROAD-TRAIN-960x576


    The concept of Greater Eurasia has been discussed at the highest levels of Russian academia and policy-making for some time. This week the policy was presented at the Council of Ministers and looks set to be enshrined, without fanfare, as the main guideline of Russian foreign policy for the foreseeable future.

    President Putin is unconditionally engaged to make it a success. Already at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum in 2016, Putin referred to an emerging “Eurasian partnership”.

    I was privileged over the past week to engage in excellent discussions in Moscow with some of the top Russian analysts and policymakers involved in advancing Greater Eurasia.

    Three particularly stand out: Yaroslav Lissovolik, program director of the Valdai Discussion Club and an expert on the politics and economics of the Global South; Glenn Diesen, author of the seminal Russia’s Geoeconomic Strategy for a Greater Eurasia; and the legendary Professor Sergey Karaganov, dean of the Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs at the National Research University Higher School of Economics and honorary chairman of the Presidium of the Council on Foreign and Defense Policy, who received me in his office for an off-the-record conversation.

    The framework for Great Eurasia has been dissected in detail by the indispensable Valdai Discussion Club, particularly on Rediscovering the Identity, the sixth part of a series called Toward the Great Ocean, published last September, and authored by an academic who’s who on the Russian Far East, led by Leonid Blyakher of the Pacific National University in Khabarovsk and coordinated by Karaganov, director of the project.

    The conceptual heart of Greater Eurasia is Russia’s Turn to the East, or pivot to Asia, home of the economic and technological markets of the future. This implies Greater Eurasia proceeding in symbiosis with China’s New Silk Roads, or Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). And yet this advanced stage of the Russia-China strategic partnership does not mean Moscow will neglect its myriad close ties to Europe.

    Russian Far East experts are very much aware of the “Eurocentrism of a considerable portion of Russian elites.” They know how almost the entire economic, demographic and ideological environment in Russia has been closely intertwined with Europe for three centuries. They recognize that Russia has borrowed Europe’s high culture and its system of military organization. But now, they argue, it’s time, as a great Eurasian power, to profit from “an original and self-sustained fusion of many civilizations”; Russia not just as a trade or connectivity point, but as a “civilizational bridge”.

    Legacy of Genghis Khan

    What my conversations, especially with Lissovolik, Diesen and Karaganov, have revealed is something absolutely groundbreaking – and virtually ignored across the West; Russia is aiming to establish a new paradigm not only in geopolitics and geoeconomics, but also on a cultural and ideological level.

    Conditions are certainly ripe for it. Northeast Asia is immersed in a power vacuum. The Trump administration’s priority – as well as the US National Security Strategy’s – is containment of China. Both Japan and South Korea, slowly but surely, are getting closer to Russia.

    Culturally, retracing Russia’s past, Greater Eurasia analysts may puzzle misinformed Western eyes. ‘Towards the Great Ocean’, the Valdai report supervised by Karaganov, notes the influence of Byzantium, which “preserved classical culture and made it embrace the best of the Orient culture at a time when Europe was sinking into the Dark Ages.” Byzantium inspired Russia to adopt Orthodox Christianity.

    It also stresses the role of the Mongols over Russia’s political system. “The political traditions of most Asian countries are based on the legacy of the Mongols. Arguably, both Russia and China are rooted in Genghis Khan’s empire,” it says.

    If the current Russian political system may be deemed authoritarian – or, as claimed in Paris and Berlin, an exponent of “illiberalism” – top Russian academics argue that a market economy protected by lean, mean military power performs way more efficiently than crisis-ridden Western liberal democracy.

    As China heads West in myriad forms, Greater Eurasia and the Belt and Road Initiative are bound to merge. Eurasia is crisscrossed by mighty mountain ranges such as the Pamirs and deserts like the Taklamakan and the Karakum. The best ground route runs via Russia or via Kazakhstan to Russia. In crucial soft power terms, Russian remains the lingua franca in Mongolia, Central Asia and the Caucasus.

    And that leads us to the utmost importance of an upgraded Trans-Siberian railway – Eurasia’s current connectivity core. In parallel, the transportation systems of the Central Asian “stans” are closely integrated with the Russian network of roads; all that is bound to be enhanced in the near future by Chinese-built high-speed rail.

    Iran and Turkey are conducting their own versions of a pivot to Asia. A free-trade agreement between Iran and the Eurasia Economic Union (EAEU) was approved in early December. Iran and India are also bound to strike a free-trade agreement. Iran is a big player in the International North-South Transport Corridor (INSTC), which is essential in driving closer economic integration between Russia and India.

    The Caspian Sea, after a recent deal between its five littoral states, is re-emerging as a major trading post in Central Eurasia. Russia and Iran are involved in a joint project to build a gas pipeline to India.

    Kazakhstan shows how Greater Eurasia and BRI are complementary; Astana is both a member of BRI and the EAEU. The same applies to gateway Vladivostok, Eurasia’s entry point for both South Korea and Japan, as well as Russia’s entry point to Northeast Asia.

    Ultimately, Russia’s regional aim is to connect China’s northern provinces with Eurasia via the Trans-Siberian and the Chinese Eastern Railway – with Chita in China and Khabarovsk in Russia totally inter-connected.

    And all across the spectrum, Moscow aims at maximizing return on the crown jewels of the Russian Far East; agriculture, water resources, minerals, lumber, oil and gas. Construction of liquefied natural gas (LNG) plants in Yamal vastly benefits China, Japan and South Korea.

    Community spirit

    Eurasianism, as initially conceptualized in the early 20th century by the geographer PN Savitsky, the geopolitician GV Vernadsky and the cultural historian VN Ilyn, among others, regarded Russian culture as a unique, complex combination of East and West, and the Russian people as belonging to “a fully original Eurasian community”.

    That certainly still applies. But as Valdai Club analysts argue, the upgraded concept of Greater Eurasia “is not targeted against Europe or the West”; it aims to include at least a significant part of the EU.

    The Chinese leadership describes BRI not only as connectivity corridors, but also as a “community”. Russians use a similar term applied to Greater Eurasia; sobornost (“community spirit”).

    As Alexander Lukin of the Higher School of Economics and an expert on the SCO has constantly stressed, including in his book China and Russia: The New Rapprochement, this is all about the interconnection of Greater Eurasia, BRI, EAEU, SCO, INSTC, BRICS, BRICS Plus and ASEAN.

    The cream of the crop of Russian intellectuals – at the Valdai Club and the Higher School of Economics – as well as top Chinese analysts, are in sync. Karaganov himself constantly reiterates that the concept of Greater Eurasia was arrived at, “jointly and officially”, by the Russia-China partnership; “a common space for economic, logistic and information cooperation, peace and security from Shanghai to Lisbon and New Delhi to Murmansk”.

    The concept of Greater Eurasia is, of course, a work in progress. What my conversations in Moscow revealed is its extraordinary ambition; positioning Russia as a key geoeconomic and geopolitical crossroads linking the economic systems of North Eurasia, Central and Southwest Asia.

    As Diesen notes, Russia and China have become inevitable allies because of their “shared objective of restructuring global value-chains and developing a multipolar world”. It’s no wonder Beijing’s drive to develop state-of-the-art national technological platforms is provoking so much anger in Washington. And in terms of the big picture, it makes perfect sense for BRI to be harmonized with Russia’s economic connectivity drive for Greater Eurasia.

    That’s irreversible. The dogs of demonization, containment, sanctions and even war may bark all they want, but the Eurasia integration caravan keeps moving along.

    Hellevig delivers, again:

    With Putin Russia is Finally Getting Proper Roads – The Progress is Impressive

    https://www.awaragroup.com/blog/impressive-progress-of-russian-roads/

    Russia has since the 19th century been notorious for the poor quality of its roads, so much so that there is a malicious saying asserting that the country has two major problems: fools and roads. Looking at the European Union of today, we must note that on the first parameter Russia clearly has taken a giant leap ahead (if they ever lagged behind), but the quality of roads still leaves much to be desired. But thankfully there has been immense progress in this respect, too, and with Russia’s newly adopted grand national plan on development of the countries road network the picture might within a few years change altogether.

    From 2000 to 2018, the expressway coverage increased sixfold, or with 2050 kilometers.

    After his reelection in March 2018, Putin ordered a further push in road building resulting in a grand national plan to develop Russia’s road network by 2024 with nearly $100 billion in investments.

    These investments will by 2024 bring some 5200 more kilometers of expressway (most of that by 2022), bringing the grand total to 7,600 km. The Putin presidency will then by 2024 have seen a 20-fold increase of this crucial road infrastructure.

    A national program on improving road safety and quality has seen some two thirds of all Russia’s roads considerably improve from 2016 to 2018.

    In connection with the national program on road development 2024, the government has set new targets on improving the second tier roads, roads between regional centers and roads within urban agglomerations. This foresees a complete modernization of some 39 thousand kilometers of the interregional roads and modernization of 85% of the roads within the 104 largest urban agglomerations.

    Siemens reviews accelerating localization of gas turbine production in Russia



    MOSCOW, February 19. /TASS/. German concern Siemens is reviewing the possibility of reducing the time required to bring localization level of a 187 MW gas turbine with to 100% by 1-1.5 years from the previously planned 2024, Siemens CEO in Russia Alexander Liberov said in an interview with TASS.

    "As I said we already have 2000E turbine with a 187 MW capacity localized by a little more than 60%. We are ready to localize it by 70% by 2020 and by up to 100% by the end of 2024. Moreover, we are now considering the possibility of reducing this period - perhaps by a year, by 1.5 years. We are currently actively reviewing it," he said.

    Thus, localization of a gas turbine with a 187 MW capacity can be increased to 100% in the second half of 2022 or in 2023.

    At the same time, Siemens tentatively estimated investments in bringing production to Russia of a gas turbine with 187 MW capacity to 100% at tens of millions of euro until 2024.

    "I’m not ready to give the figures, because now we are in the process of settling and negating with partners. But this includes tens of millions of euro until 2024, Liberov said.

    Liberov noted that in order to make a decision on increasing localization, a number of issues need to be addressed. They include ensuring that all power equipment fully localized in Russia falls under the new modernization program of thermal power plants, regardless of the origin of the company that produced it; and that Russian companies that will supply Siemens with gas turbine componentshave relevant competencies.

    "We are currently in talks with several Russian companies to speed up the turbine localization process to 100% earlier than announced 2024. Increasing the localization level from 70% to 100% includes localization of the most technologically complex part of the turbine. To do this, Russian supplier companies must have relevant developments, and they must prove their competence at the appropriate level," he added.

    The first time steam above both cooling towers: After issuing a license yesterday for power startup of Novovoronezh II-2 (the right unit), one of ROSENERGOATOM's newest nuclear reactor units with VVER-1200 V-392M (AES-2006/92), the staff begun immediately with the required steps to do so. In the next days, the reactor will be powered up between 35 and 40% of full power and then will be connected to the power grid of Russia for the first time!

    That's pretty strange. An article about Russia on CNN website which has no mention of Crimea, sanctions, US elections or even Putin himself!  confused

    https://edition.cnn.com/travel/article/russia-china-cable-car-scli/index.html

    The world's first cross-border cable car will travel from Russia to China in under 8 minutes





    I suspect CNN's news director is about to be fired for reporting positively about Russia tongue
