The project of Japanese greenhouses in Khabarovsk was the first production launched by a foreign resident in the territory of advanced development. The combination of strong support from regional authorities, the presence of a key Russian partner in the face of an industrial park and modern technologies implicated in Japanese diligence and capital, created a unique in strength and exponential story. It would seem that these are just cucumbers and tomatoes. But the project, and this is the main thing, is not only the present in the form of beautiful and environmentally friendly products on the Khabarovsk shelves. He has a future: after passing the first object to the Khabarovsk TOR, the resident will be ready to turn in the second stage of the greenhouse complex by the autumn, doubling the volume of production, and calculating the prospects of the third one.
 
To provide residents of the Far East with products of the highest quality, produced with the use of advanced technologies with the participation of foreign investments - it seems that this is the ideal formula for any project within any territory of advanced development. The first one was realized in Khabarovsk, in the eponymous TOR, and this is the merit of so many people. 

In February 2015, JGC Evergreen LLC was registered in Russia. The company's capital was formed from three sources. The Russian partner of the project was the Energoimpulse + company founded in 1995, known for the supply of electrical equipment for projects that are significant for Khabarovsk: the Platinum Arena sports complex, the bridge across the Amur, and the center of cardiovascular surgery. Japanese partners include JGC Corporation, Japan's first engineering contractor, and Dogin Dosanko No. 3 Limited Investment Partnership, which supports high-tech projects for small and medium-sized businesses. Each of the three partners has invested in the project what is strong.

Energoimpulse + is one of the co-owners of the Avangard industrial park, the first industrial park in Khabarovsk, so the company was able to offer a convenient site for the project, to which at that time the infrastructure was already connected, and its services as a contractor for the installation of electrical equipment. JGC Corporation has already built several Greenhouse greenhouses in Japan, therefore it had experience in applying information and communication technologies, robotics and other latest developments in the greenhouse industry. Finally, "Dogin Dosanko No. 3" provided the project with funding, which required a lot: first of all, the greenhouse complex, which occupied 2,5 hectares of land, as a result, 556 million rubles were invested.

"The presence of such an investor, of course, is the hallmark of our industrial park, creates a favorable image of the company when negotiating with new residents. On the other hand, the developer of the industrial park provided the site with all the necessary engineering infrastructure: an 11 km gas pipeline was built, internal power grids were laid, water supply and sewerage systems have been built, as well as internal roads. In a word, everything you need to conduct production activities. And the fact that JGC is implementing its project in the industrial park proves the ability of our site to create a favorable environment for foreign investment, " - says the executive director of the industrial park Denis Gros.

"At the first stage, the Agency for Investments and Development of the Khabarovsk Territory provided our company with serious support in the implementation of the project. We began to cooperate with the agency in 2014, and throughout the entire period of preparatory work it provided comprehensive information, consulting and organizational support in market research. , legal consultations, as well as the organization of meetings with representatives of the business community.All this undoubtedly served as one of the grounds for making a positive decision on the implementation of an investment project in the Khabarovsk Territory, - says the Deputy General Director of the resident company Vladimir Albrant. to express to the Ministry of Investment and Land and Property Policy of the Khabarovsk Territory, which continues to provide assistance in solving complex issues. "

Thanks to the well-coordinated work of all partners and the support of the authorities, the Evergreen greenhouse complex was built in just six months: work on the construction site began on July 1, 2015, and already on December 29, the first plants began to be planted in greenhouses. Several contractor companies, both Russian and foreign, took part in the construction. The main contract was concluded with the "Greenhouse Technologies" company, which was directly involved in the construction of structures. The adjustment and installation of the automation was carried out by Dutch specialists. 

“We opted for Dutch technology because Holland proved to be the most experienced manufacturer of high quality greenhouses. All equipment in our greenhouse is Dutch-made, with the exception of the seedling chamber, which we brought from Japan. As we say in Japan:“ Good sprouts bring a good harvest, ”explains Igarashi Tomoyuki, CEO of JGC Evergreen LLC. In greenhouses, a microclimate that is comfortable for plant growth is constantly maintained. Processes such as feeding and watering plants, maintaining the required temperature, humidity and illumination are fully automated. At the same time, operators monitor all indicators around the clock. The Dutch Priva system is used to control the automation. The system is programmed individually for each greenhouse, in accordance with its characteristics.

Evergreen now produces two varieties of cucumbers, Meva and Kibriya, and four varieties of tomatoes, including the finest cherry tomatoes. The products are packed in original branded bags. On Khabarovsk shelves, these are very popular and always scarce products. The vegetables of the first harvest were sold in markets and shops like hotcakes. And the resident company does not intend to stop at what has been achieved: the already begun construction of the second stage of the complex will double the volume of production. 

"It can be considered a great victory that the company JGC Evergreen started construction of the second stage of greenhouses with an area of ​​25 thousand sq.m in June," says Denis Groš. "Although the project is being implemented by the same company, the decision to start the construction of the second stage was taken solely based on the experience of the last two years, which means that this experience is positive. " "Construction is planned to be completed in October this year, and the first crop in new greenhouses of the second stage should be completed by the new year," he continues.- The project for the development of the greenhouse complex of JGC Evergreen also includes the construction of the third and final stage with an area of ​​50 thousand square meters. , in which the Japanese strawberry will be grown.We very much hope that nothing will prevent the company from realizing its plan to the end.
