    Rostec reports financial gains amid moves to diversify portfolio


    Russian technology holding company Rostec on 30 July reported revenues of RUB1,642 trillion (USD26 billion) in 2018, generating a 7.8% net profit margin.

    Civilian and high-technology products accounted for about two-thirds of this total, reflecting a state-led objective to diversify its production portfolio.

    Rostec CEO Sergey Chemezov informed Russian President Vladimir Putin that net profits increased by almost 6% to exceed USD2 billion. Civil products accounted for about 30% of revenues with a 1.5% year-on-year increase, which is ahead of targets for Rostec to diversify from its historic reliance on defence production.

    Offshore reactors could be cheaper, safer and more flexible, proponents say, making them a useful weapon against climate change. Critics are incredulous.

    Planned construction of thermal power plants on new Russian experimental gas turbines of high power

    According to the newspaper Kommersant, in Tatyana Dyatel’s article “Domestic turbines are being tested in Kashira. The Ministry of Energy has chosen a place for a large thermal power plant,” the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation believes that the construction of a gas thermal power plant is the least expensive option for building a thermal power plant (TPP) on new experimental turbines capacity of 1.4 GW in the Kashirsky district of the Moscow region. The CAPEX of this project, according to the ministry, will be about 100 billion rubles. Market Council estimates the total market load at 200 billion rubles. With alternative placement options, the project will have to be split into two or three small stations, which raises the total CAPEX of the project by about 30%.

    Moscow ring railway plan approved in 2017, completed in 2019. On time and on budget.

    Putin makes a point about keeping fares affordable for people earning minimum wage. The gears start turning.

    That is what a real leader should be. Not some condom for lobbyists and special interests.

    Nice.

    Another thing that is good about it is that it requires production of Solar Panels... which is a good thing, which should make them cheaper.

    Over time, experience will allow them to develop more durable panels that keep working at better efficiency for longer which is also good...

    BTW if you see an advert for "window cleaner" in either of those regions that seems to offer rather good wages and conditions check the fine print and the address before you sign anything.... Twisted Evil

    Все комплектующие электростанции произведены в России, в частности гетероструктурные солнечные модули произвел завод «Хевел» в Новочебоксарске.

    The solar panels deployed by these projects are Russian made (by Hevel) and are the high efficiency (over 20%) heterostructure types. So these projects are
    stimulating Russian industry and technology advancement.

    Somebody should start screeching about corruption and waste of pensioner money. Russian companies cannot be allowed to prosper.

    The panels used are from Havel which is a Russian company who makes solar panels. Plus, they have higher efficiency than even western panels from countries like mine (Canada)

    I can hear the gnashing of teeth in Washington from here..

    Doubly so... not only are they not using oil which undermines the basis of wealth for a lot of very rich people in the US, they are also not using US solar panels either so I can see a ban on importing Russian solar panels being added to the agenda for the next round of sanctions.

    They have already put sanctions on Chinese solar panels that worked out too cheap for US makers to compete... imagine... those evil Chinese and Russians investing money to develop solar technology with the obvious express purpose to hurt legitimate US businesses like Chevron and Exxon etc etc...

    Good for Russia and good for the planet.

    BTW there is a BBC documentary called Vic Reeves in Russia or some such title, and they emphasised the far east with all the Chinese there working Russian land.... hint hint Chinese invasion... hint hint... no mention of the fact that that is just like foreign investment by China around the world... they actually own farms here in New Zealand, and AFAIK they can't own land in Russia without being Russian citizens.

    He constantly complained about all sorts of things which all seemed to be Russias fault.

    Amusingly he complained about police harassment... which I think some RT reporters in Britain would find hilarous... I mean why would officials in Russia be unhappy to see a British camera crew and documentary team in their region of the country... they are so positive and friendly towards Russia and Russians.

    Ironically the guy even says that the average Russian is great but the police and officials are following them everywhere and are being obstructive.... boo hoo.

    He didn't mention Russia does not want to end up like Libya or Ukraine with documentary crews and conservationists from the west being so bloody helpful... they are certainly happy to protect and assist terrorists in Russia like Chechens and Georgians...

    The land is owned by Russians themselves and Chinese companies lease the lands.  Those workers live in their own little shelters on the leased land. It's no different than foreign workers working in the middle East and living in compounds.  Difference is it's Chinese companies who operate the leased lands.

    As for police this or that or whatever you said about following people around - that doesn't happen.  That simply is a flat out lie by the BBC.

    What's funny is that they are allowed to travel around Russia and say this nonsense and freely move on out too. Which contradicts everything they say.

    The rest what you said doesn't make sense nor does it follow logic. Of course they won't mention about liberation because if they did, it would give away the idea that Russia is going to be invaded like Libya. Or the fact that everyone in Russia is aware of the events in Libya and Ukraine and are not in favor of listening to foreigners.

    It's better to watch Graham Phillips instead.

    I posted this in the New Technologies thread because it is related to technologies the Russians have that the west does not, like extracting useful U235 from DU fuel cores, but also fast neutron reactor technology.

    It has important implications for the future of Russian energy... perhaps in 10-20 years the west will demand a limitation or ban on oil or gas to "save the Planet" so clean green technologies that are renewable and clean are needed... solar and wind and hydro are relatively clean but not particularly reliable.
    =====================================================================================================================
    Anyway, I found this article which is rather interesting and amusing... it seems the Russians are going to start importing German nuclear waste again and there are protests coming especially from the west.

    On the face of it I thought... why is Russia taking on that shit, they should let Germany deal with its own rubbish... but this article convinced me otherwise and it is because of the technology knowhow in Russia that it actually makes sense.

    As far as Germany is concerned this depleted Urainium is useless waste, and toxic enough to want to get rid of, but as this article states Russia has the ability to extract useful uranium isotopes from this DU, but also their new reactor types that are called fast neutron reactors... sometimes called breeder reactors... can use depleted Uranium fuel rods and placing them near the pile or reactor core can be recycled into nuclear fuel that can be sold back the customers like Germany... who will pay Russia to take back when it is spent as DU and Russia can place it in their reactors generating electricity for themselves to refuel it up to sell back... the ideal sort of recycling that is worth a lot of money.

    Russia has a large amount of DU that can be converted into valuable fuel rods it can sell and then get paid to take back when they are spent..... it is brilliant.

    https://topcor.ru/12178-zachem-rossija-skupaet-nemeckij-obednennyj-uran.html


    Here is English translation:

       Why Russia is buying German depleted uranium
       Last week in our country, a wave of protest rallies. Cause of popular discontent was the resumption of German imports to us depleted uranium. People don't agree with the fact that Russia is gradually turning into "radioactive burial ground." In this case, the protesters do not believe the assurances of "Rosatom" that no danger is actually there.

       The week before the pickets "defenders of environment" held in Germany. It is worth Recalling that 10 years ago a similar situation led to the termination of the transaction on the import of the German "nuclear tailings" in Russia.

       But why "Rosatom" resumed "radioactive cooperation"? And so if it really dangerous? For the answer we turn to physics.


       The fact that on its territory, our country imports is not entirely waste. Raw material for the production of nuclear fuel is uranium ore, production of which is conducted in the mines. The latter contains the isotope U-235, which subsequently produced fuel for nuclear power plants.

       However, the content ratio of the isotope in the ore is too low (0,7%). The solution to the problem was the enrichment of uranium, a byproduct of which is depleted uranium considered waste. But despite the "status" of substances, it also contains small amounts of U-235.

       Our country has a technology that is able to extract from depleted uranium quite a lot of valuable isotope. In fact, "waste" this product is only for Europe due to its technological ignorance.

       In the end, it becomes clear that Russia accepts Germany is not waste, but valuable raw material for recycling. At the same time, we send back "doobogascheny" uranium, for which the income received.

       After the above processing, we are left with depleted uranium, to enrich no one can not. At the same time, it does not represent a radiation hazard, but contains fluoride, which can contaminate the environment. This and "under pressure" the activists.

       However, not everyone knows that the substance we are not buried in the ground. It is stored in special metal containers and now in Russia is over 1 million tons of such waste.

       Similarly, depleted uranium stored in other countries with developed nuclear power. And most importantly, that no one, except Russia, does not know what to do with it.

       The main "trump card" of our country is a Breakthrough project, work on which is underway since 2011. It involves the creation of new nuclear technologies based on closed nuclear fuel cycle using fast neutron reactors. The successful implementation of the ambitious project will open up before mankind a new era, as all the accumulated nuclear waste can be used for energy.

       According to preliminary estimates, the aforementioned "reserves" will be enough to provide the whole planet with electricity for the next 3000 years. Thus, the revolutionary technology will be only in Russian. In fact, as a significant part of the accumulated waste.

    They have footage of being stopped by the police and being followed.

    Considering the bullshit the BBC publishes and broadcasts about Russia, I think the FSB and the Police would stupid to ignore such groups of people... people who basically supported Chechen terrorists and now terrorists in Syria like the white helmets are people that need to be monitored.

    They will bitch and moan and complain about Russia and Putin whether they do it or not so it simply makes sense to keep and eye on them.

    Best option is to have vesti or someone else follow them and also film. So there is footage on all ends.

    The problem is that if Russian film crews go to places like Britain, they often get arrested and they certainly get followed too...

    note the difference in reporting the exact same story:


    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6450575/Russian-TV-spies-caught-secret-UK-army-psychological-warfare-unit.html

    Or this:


    Loved this bit that wasn't in the British version of events however:

    https://www.rt.com/uk/445404-russian-journalist-spy-uk-base/


    “I approached an entry checkpoint and introduced myself… said that we wanted to talk,” Siraziev said, noting that neither he nor his cameramen were hiding and that he’d contacted the Defence Ministry’s press service earlier but received no reply.

    Siraziev’s actions would normally look like something a typical journalist would do. However, the British military seem, somehow, to have seen it in an entirely different way.

    The British article makes it sound like it was a James Bond master villain that has been stopped, but also named and shamed with an image of the reporters ID and the licence plate of his car being published... I wonder how western media would feel about their private IDs and personal information being published on line.... oh... don't have to wonder... rights regarding personal data protection and even the European convention on human rights should make such a thing a clear violation of this guys rights.

    How about if he, in his capacity as a reporter put the ID details of western reporters or police officers that questioned him on the news...
