    Rosatom's total order book amounted to $ 300 billion

    http://www.interfax.ru/business/467654

    It includes contracts for the construction of 30 nuclear power units in 12 countries, has 10 power units are negotiations

    Moscow. September 18. INTERFAX.RU - The order book of the corporation "Rosatom" includes contracts for the construction of 30 nuclear power units in 12 countries, has 10 power units are negotiations, said the head of the corporation, Sergei Kiriyenko met with Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

    According to him, the total portfolio of $ 300 billion and will grow.

    During participation in the conference of the IAEA "Rosatom" I have held talks with all partners. "What is important is not just the interest is preserved, the interest is growing ... We have in the past few years, the order book increased by 5.5 times. We have a date in the order book of 30 nuclear power units in 12 countries and in talks more than 10. I'm afraid to jinx it, we are now simultaneously in five countries, there are negotiations, discussions, "- said Kiriyenko.

    The head of "Rosatom" noted that in recent years the corporation has not lost any open tender. "Wherever announces an open tender, we have won these tenders. In fact through these tenders portfolio grew 5.5 times. Now it turns out that a full portfolio of orders - more than $ 300 billion, and it continues to grow. And our task in the coming years him to continue to increase strongly, "- said Kiriyenko.

    He also noted that cooperation in the nuclear sector allows us to develop relations between the two countries for a long time, since only the construction units takes from 7 to 10 years, and then continued service stations guarantee a job which are for 60 years with the real possibility of their work to 100 years.

    The volume of 10-year-old portfolio of foreign orders "Rosatom" in 2020 could rise to $ 150 billion from $ 101.4 billion at the end of 2014, according to a presentation of the state corporation in August.

    Lastochka High-Speed Train Launched Between St. Petersburg and Vyborg

    Lastochka trains operate on Oktyabrskaya Railway along two routes: St. Petersburg-Veliky Novgorod-Bologoye and St. Petersburg-Petrozavodsk.

    St. Petersburg (Sputnik) – The Lastochka high-speed train made its first journey from St. Petersburg to Vyborg on Wednesday.

    The Lastochka electric train was designed by Germany’s Siemens on the Desiro platform for commuter operation on Russian railroads. Its maximum speed is 160 km. per hour and its operating temperature ranges from 40 C to minus 40 C. Russian Railways chose Lastochka trains, which run today in several regions, for transportation during the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi.

    “The Lastochka trains are a breakthrough. They have raised passenger service to an entirely new level in terms of both speed and comfort,” Acting Governor of the Leningrad Region Alexander Drozdenko said at the ceremony of launching the commuter train.

    He said that for 1.5-2 months the cost of a ticket on a Lastochka train will be the same as on its predecessor.

    Head of the Oktyabrskaya Railway Oleg Valinsky said that experts are considering the possibility of launching Lastochka train service to Volkhov, Gatchina and Sosnovo.

    Lastochka trains operate on Oktyabrskaya Railway along two routes: St. Petersburg-Veliky Novgorod-Bologoye and St. Petersburg-Petrozavodsk.

    A number of Lastochka trains run by Russian Railways were manufactured by Siemens. Now Uralskiye Lokomotivy (a joint venture of the Sinara Group and Siemens) has started their production. The first Russian train was produced in May. In all, Russian Railways ordered 1,200 cars for Lastochka trains. The project provides for 80 percent localization by 2017, but the partners are already ahead of schedule.

    I've been wondering... How bad is the Russian infrastructure overall in 2015? Because I keep hearing about this stereotype that Russian infrastructure is absolutely terrible (which is certainly not true by global standards/averages). Some statistics/comparisons? How much has it improved since... let's say 2005? I'd imagine it's quite a bit better. And you can certainly see articles (on this very page Very Happy) and official announcements stating how new roads are being built etc., but how is it really going to improve overall at this rate by 2025 or so?

    You keep hearing this from the hate-filled anti-Russian propaganda spigots in the western media.

    See Austin's post of the Lastochka commuter train. It goes 160 km/h. We have nothing like this in
    Canada. The two main Canadian cities, Toronto and Montreal, are linked by a joint freight and passenger
    rail line where train speeds do not exceed 120 km/h. If they ran trains on dedicated passenger rails at
    150 km/hr it would take just over 3 hours to cover the distance. Instead it takes 4 hours plus time
    for stops. There isn't even a proper express train between the two cities. All trains make stops along
    the way.

    kvs , Russian Fastest Train is Sapsan its top speed is 250 km/hr upgradable to 350 km/hr
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sapsan

    Sapsan set records for the fastest train in Russia on 2 May 2009, travelling at 281 km/h (175 mph)[7] and on 7 May 2009, travelling at 290 km/h (180 mph).

    I honestly don't know how it is for the rest of Russia. Of course there are many projects and even some mega-projects on the way around Russia, but then other infrastructure might be left alone and just continue to age, only we wouldn't know about it. The only solution is to visit and see for yourself.

    I can tell you about St. Petersburg though. So in the past 10-15 years or so we've had:
    - Construction of the Ring Road & dam system to alleviate traffic and flooding
    - Beautification of the centre for the 300-year old city anniversary celebrations
    - Construction of a big new airport terminal, reconstruction of the older ones
    - Ongoing construction of the Western Diameter (highway toll road to Finland and Moscow)
    - Construction of the Ust-Luga cargo port
    - High-speed Sapsan rail services to Finland and Moscow, new trains for both commuter and inter-city services, renovation of all railway stations in the city and construction of many smaller rural stops and platforms
    - Beautification of several municipal residential areas of the city (with mixed results depending on local authorities), construction of playgrounds, kindergardens, outdoor sports facilities, etc...
    - Slow process of renovations of old residential and general-use buildings in the city centre
    - Construction of a lot of housing (last year was the highest pace since 1987), office buildings, business complexes, shopping centres
    - Construction of a new Ice Palace stadium, ongoing construction of a new Football stadium
    - 1-2 new metro stations, renovation of a few others, ongoing construction of a new metro line and a couple more stations
    - Renovation and upkeep of almost all roads in the city, partial reconstruction of rural road network in proximity to the city
    - Considerable progress on alleviation of traffic jams; removal of many tram lines from the centre and introduction of new high-speed tram lines further from the centre, new junctions, bypasses, bridges constructed
    - Ongoing and constantly changing, never-ending reconstruction of a small island in the centre hosting several warehouse buildings dating back to Catherine the Great times
    - High-speed internet everywhere, fast food, coffee chains, restaurants too
    - Improved tourist infrastructure - more tours and sights, a lot of new hotels and hostels, more English language support and signs
    - Plans for the construction of an Airport Express train service/line, that never seem to materialize

    Still need:
    - Beautification and better cleaning of residential areas, they still look fugly
    - Bicycle tracks and highways
    - Water taxis & buses
    - Some new or renovated schools, haven't seen one from the outside that doesn't look like a Soviet-style jumble of prefabricated concrete blocks
    - Increased pace of renovation of buildings in the city centre
    - Pollution reduction from truck traffic going right through the middle of the city to/from the port zones
    - Ferry terminal looks fugly
    - Reconstruction of the masses of Soviet-era housing blocks outside the city-centre (that most of the population live in), that are already 2 decades past their expiry date

    one good way would be to use cng in cars ,compressed natural gas - methane which russia is no1 in reserves for- public transport ,buses ,and taxis, and better recycling technologies and culture - that can be much improved.
    i dont see bikes going strong its very cold for very long out there.

    Russia’s Baltic Shipyard to commission power unit for world’s first floating NPP in 2016

    This is the Russian industry’s serious contribution to the Arctic region development

    ST. PETERSBURG, December 7. /TASS/. A floating power unit, which the Baltic Shipyard in northwest Russia is building, should be commissioned in September 2016, Vice-Premier Dmitry Rogozin said at a forum on the Arctic development on Monday.

    The power unit is designed for the world’s first floating nuclear power plant (NPP) Russia is building, the vice-premier said.

    "A floating power unit is under construction: this is unique innovation technology, which has evoked the interest of many countries, including the states far away from the Arctic region," the vice-premier said.

    "We should commission the 600 MW power unit in September next year," Rogozin said.

    This is the Russian industry’s serious contribution to the Arctic region development, the vice-premier added.

    The Project 20870 Academician Lomonosov floating power unit is a non-self-propelled vessel with two KLT-40 nuclear reactors on its board and is designed to provide electric power for Arctic areas and desalinate sea water.

    The power unit is expected to operate for a period of up to 40 years, given that its reactors are regularly re-charged every 2.5-3 years.

    The floating power unit will be operated by the vessel’s constant crew of several dozen people.

    The Academician Lomonosov floating power unit, which the Baltic Shipyard is building, is expected to operate in the town of Pevek in the northeastern Chukotka Autonomous District.

    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
    Development Projects of Russia: Industry, Energy and Infastructure - Page 8 SP0zykR
    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 $

    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.
