Modesty is not a threshold

EastRussia talks about the investment projects in the Far East, which will receive state support

Modesty is not a threshold

The Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev, at a meeting with the Deputy Prime Ministers, said that a list of investment projects in the Far East that would receive state support had been approved. According to the prime minister, the macro-region is focused on the mechanism for the formation of territories of advanced social and economic development. He said that he had signed a decree on the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East: now they have the right to create and control the process of creating these territories, according to the website of the Russian government. “In addition, an order has been signed that approves the list of investment projects in the Far East, all of them will receive state support,” the Prime Minister noted.

Struck by the hands

This list of investment projects was formed following a meeting of the government subcommittee on February 12. Recall that six positions were approved then: the construction of the Inaglinsky GOK (Yakutia), the construction of a transport and transshipment complex for transshipment of coal in Vanino (Khabarovsk Territory), the development of coal mining at the Ural deposit (Khabarovsk Territory), the development of gold mining in the Selemdzhinsky District (Amur Region ), construction of a mining and metallurgical plant at the Ozernovskaya gold-grain deposit (Kamchatka Territory), the first stage of the Taezhny GOK

Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Government, Plenipotentiary of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev thanked the head of government for supporting the subcommittee's proposals. “Six investment projects will be implemented with a total volume of private investments of 127 billion rubles. At the same time, it must be said that 52 billion (40%) have already been invested by investors. The volume of planned public funds is 16,8 billion. As a result of the implementation, 2025 billion rubles of tax revenues will be received by 89,5, that is, budget investments will pay off five times over this period, "Trutnev emphasized.

“I hope that these new enterprises will be truly created, new jobs will appear and, accordingly, the income base of the entire Far East will increase,” Medvedev summed up.

Priority Projects

At the moment, as Trutnev clarified, eleven investment projects in the mining and metallurgical industry, in the field of animal husbandry, the development of transport and logistics infrastructure, the fishing industry, agriculture, the chemical industry and the construction industry are in high readiness.

Project №1

Construction of a transport and transshipment complex for transshipment of coal in the Muchka Bay of the seaport of Vanino in the Khabarovsk Territory. Investor - Sakha (Yakutsk) Transport Company LLC (Sakhatrans, structure of Volga Group).

Construction time: 2015-2020 years

Volume of private investments: 19 billion rubles, of which 2,49 billion rubles have already been spent.

Required budget investments: 3,28 billion rubles.

· Public and non-public railways - 2,5 billion rubles.

· External power supply networks of 110 kV (transformer substations and transmission lines) - 745 million rubles.

· Water pipeline TPK Sakhatrans - 26 million rubles.

The terminal will be a link in the logistic chain for transporting coal from the deposits of Yakutia (Denisovskoye, Chulmakanskoye, Lokuchakitskoye and other deposits) through the port of Vanino to the Asia-Pacific countries. The government of the Khabarovsk Territory approved the initiative of Sakhatrans LLC to include the terminal within the boundaries of the port special economic zone.

In fact, the implementation of this project was started back in 2005 by Sakhatrans, which was not part of the Volga Group at that time. The new terminal was an important link in the plans for the development of production assets in South Yakutia and was supposed to ensure the export of products to Asian countries. Then it was supposed to build a terminal complex on a plot of about 200 hectares. The first stage was supposed to provide transshipment of 6,2 million tons of coal, 6 million tons of iron ore concentrate, 1 million tons of lumber in containers by 2015. The second stage for transshipment of 9,3 million tons of coal, 8 million tons of iron ore concentrate, 1,5 million tons of lumber in containers was planned to be launched in 2020. In 2012, 30% of Sakhatrans shares were acquired by a consortium of Volga Group and Gunvor from the main owner of Bixcut Holdings. It now accounts for 40% of the authorized capital of the company.

In February, Deputy General Director for Logistics Volga Group Alexander Pochtary made a statement in which he reported difficulties with the implementation of the investment project. The reason for this was the sanctions imposed on the owner of the company, Gennady Timchenko, as well as the fall in the ruble exchange rate. So, because of the devaluation, it was necessary to abandon the supply of expensive German equipment and consider an option with a more budgetary Chinese. In addition, Western financial institutions Deutsche Bank and Hermes insurance company can not participate in the project due to sanctions. Russian loans have become extremely expensive due to the stabilization measures of the Central Bank, and to work with Chinese banks and insurers, government guarantees are required that should be given to Russian banks cooperating with Chinese banks.

The mechanism for supporting investment projects has not yet been tested. “In addition, not very large sums are provided for this mechanism. This year - no more than 50 billion rubles. And our project alone costs 100 billion rubles. Also, the resolution spells out government guarantees, which amount to 25%. In connection with the fall of the ruble, this is also not enough. It is required to increase such guarantees up to 50%, "- said Alexander Pochtar.

Project №2

Comprehensive project for the development of coal mining and coal preparation in the Khabarovsk Territory. Investor - Urgalugol OJSC (structure of SUEK OJSC).

Construction time: 2011-2016 years.

Volume of private investments: 23,7 billion rubles, of which 15,9 billion rubles have already been invested.

Required budget investments: 2,37 billion rubles.

· Bridge over the Chegdomyn River - 22 million rubles.

· Construction of railway tracks for the Chegdomyn concentrating plant - 26 million rubles.

· Reconstruction of railway tracks at Chegdomyn station - RUB 83 million.

· Power transmission line and substation - 78 million rubles.

· Bridge over the Urgal River - 28 million rubles.

The project involves the development of the Pravoberezhny open-pit mine and the construction of an enrichment plant with a capacity of 9,1 million tonnes of coal per year at the Urgal coal deposit. As the Governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Vyacheslav Shport stated earlier, Urgalugol is a supplier of about 2 million tons of coal for five existing Far Eastern CHPPs and the projected CHPP in Sovgavan. In addition, the village of Chegdomyn, where the headquarters of the enterprise is located, is included in the list of single-industry towns that claim state support.

The working group on the modernization of single-industry towns (as part of the government commission for economic development and integration), headed by VEB deputy chairman Irina Makieva, visited Chegdomyn in late February. The authorities of the region presented their own project of creating an industrial park around the city-forming coal enterprise. Makieva said that the project can count on federal financial support for the construction and modernization of engineering infrastructure.

“Local businesses are very actively involved in the project, they are ready to enter the site of the industrial park. They need to finalize their business plans, after which we will have an understanding of what own funds this or that investor has, what engineering infrastructure new enterprises will need. Based on this, financing will be allocated in stages, ”Makieva noted.

Project №3

Inaglinsky ore mining and processing plant (Inaglinsky GOK) in South Yakutia. Investor - Kolmar Management Company LLC (joint asset of LoneState Assets Ltd, Gunvor, Volga Group).

Construction time: 2011-2017 years.

Volume of private investments: 22,87 billion rubles, of which 2,65 million rubles was invested.

Required budget investments: 560 million rubles for the construction of a 110 kV substation of the Inaglinsky GOK with the approaches of the 110 kV overhead line.

The project includes the Inaglinskaya mine and the Inaglinskaya mining and processing plant with a coal production and processing volume of 3 million tons per year; production of coke concentrate - up to 2,5 million tons per year and will begin in 2016. In November last year, the construction of a railway track from the Chulbass station to the Pogruzochnaya station of the Inaglinsky GOK began, as well as a 110 kV high-voltage line with the Inaglinskaya substation. General Director of Kolmar Management Company LLC Sergey Tsivilev said, Construction will be completed as early as 2015 year.

The construction of the railway, according to the head of the district, will be carried out by the republican enterprise "Railways of Yakutia". The construction of the power transmission line is carried out by the Neryungrienergoremont enterprise. “The transport scheme is very convenient and the presence of ports closest to the Neryungri region and railway crossings contribute to the development of the region and focus on the economy of Southeast Asia", - considers the head of the Neryungri region Andrey Fitisov.

Project №4

The first stage of the Taezhny mining and processing plant (Tayezhny GOK) in South Yakutia. Investor - CJSC MMC Timir (a joint venture between EVRAZ Group and AK ALROSA).

Construction time: 2015-2017 years.

Volume of private investments: 12,2 billion rubles, invested 4,8 billion rubles.

Required budget investments: 1,62 billion rubles ALROSA

· Additional development of the Taezhnaya railway station - 997 million rubles.

· Single-circuit power transmission line with a length of 7 km and a step-down substation PP-110/10 kV - 623 million rubles.

At the first stage of the project, it is planned to extract 3 million tons of ore per year, at the second - 6 million tons per year. "In 2015, we must complete the development of design documentation for the development of the first stage of the Taezhnoye deposit with a production capacity of 3 million tonnes of ore and start construction. And in 2017 to put the facility into operation", - the technical director of the company Igor Korotaev reported at a meeting in the government of Yakutia.

We add that in February the government of Yakutia and MMC Timir signed an agreement that provides for tax holidays within the framework of the law on greenfields. This requires the enterprise to obtain the status of a regional investment project (RIP). The benefits will apply for a period of ten years from the date of the launch of the GOK at the Taezhnoye field. A company can receive full exemption from income tax to the federal budget within ten years from the date of receipt of income and a five-year exemption from it to the regional budget. Over the next five years, the tax will be 10%. Within ten years from the date of receipt of income, the project can also receive mineral extraction tax benefits.

Project №5

Development of gold mining in the Selemdzhinsky district of the Amur region. The investor is the GC "Petropavlovsk" (Petropavlovsk plc).

Construction time: 2010-2019 years.

Volume of private investments: 36,5 billion rubles, of which 23,7 billion rubles were invested.

Required budget investments: 5,6 billion rubles for the 220 kV Fevralskaya-Rudnaya overhead line with the Rudnaya 220 kV substation.

The implementation of the project, which started four years ago, is impeded by a shortage of electricity. “We have already built factories in the Selemdzhinsky district, we produce about 8 tons of gold, but further development, increasing production is impossible without power supply,” noted Pavel Maslovsky, General Director of the Petropavlovsk group of companies. Today the Selemdzhinsky district is powered by the Fevralsk-Koboldo high-voltage transmission line, whose load is 100%. The needs of new industrial facilities exceed the capabilities of this line by a third.

“The project with a deadline for implementation already at the end of 2016, by 2017, will increase the volume of gold production plus to the existing ones up to 4 tons. This is about 3 thousand new jobs and about 3 billion rubles in taxes. The project makes it possible to see the prospects for expanding gold mining in general in the Selemdzhinsky region, as well as to use power lines for the Ogodzhinsky coal basin and to supply the population with sustainable electricity, ”said Oleg Kozhemyako, Governor of the Amur Region.

Let us add one more important point - the Petropavlovsk company itself is in a difficult financial position and only last week received the consent of the majority of shareholders to restructure its bond debt for $ 310 million.

Project №6

Construction of a mining and metallurgical plant for the extraction and processing of ore of the Ozernovsky gold ore deposit in the Kamchatka Territory. Investor - OJSC Siberian Mining and Metallurgical Alliance (OJSC SIGMA).

Construction time: 2009-2017 years.

Volume of private investments: 12,2 billion rubles, 2,48 billion rubles spent.

Required budget investments: 1,26 billion rubles for the construction of 64 km of access road category III-in to the Ozernovskoye field.

The plans for the development of the deposit provide for the extraction and processing of 250 thousand tons of ore per year within the first stage of the plant (the start is scheduled for 2016), up to 2,6 million tons within the second stage. In March last year, the authorities of the Kamchatka Territory assigned the project the status of especially significant for the region. Sberbank is ready to finance the construction of the first stage of the facility in the amount of $ 140 million. The corresponding memorandum was signed in the summer by Evgeny Titov, Chairman of the Far Eastern Bank of Sberbank of Russia, and Dmitry Przhibelsky, Deputy General Director of SIGMA. “The project has great prospects, and they multiply when solving issues in the field of energy and logistics,” says Mr. Przhibelsky.

Project №7

Advanced development areas:

TOP "Khabarovsk", Khabarovsk Territory, city of Khabarovsk

Number of residents: 8

The volume of private investment: 28,52 billion rubles.

The volume of budget investments for infrastructure: 1,8 billion rubles.

In the initial version, it was supposed to create the Rakitnoye ASEZ near the settlement of the same name near Khabarovsk. However, in this case, it would be impossible to participate in the project of the most interested investors, whose assets are located in the city district. This, in particular, is the TechnoNIKOL Corporation, which is building new facilities for the production of thermal insulation. In 2015, the second line for the production of stone wool with a capacity of 45 thousand tons per year will be launched at the Bazalit-DV plant, owned by the company, in Khabarovsk. 20% of new volumes will be sold to China. 1,47 billion rubles were invested in the expansion of production.

According to Irek Allayarov, the head of the Mineral Isolation Direction of TechnoNIKOL, joining the TOP will make it possible to comprehensively resolve issues of energy supply for future enterprises. “In addition, preferential taxation will allow more active investment in new production. In general, I would like to note that the TOP project initiated by the Ministry of Development of the Far East is a very timely and correct approach that will help to comprehensively resolve the issue of the development of the entire Far East, ”the corporation representative said.

OJSC "Khabarovsk Airport", which is looking for a co-investor for the development of the commercial zone of the air hub (Air City project), can also become a resident of the TOP. It is planned to create a hotel complex, an exhibition center, as well as logistics facilities. In addition, the modernization of the passenger terminal is planned in partnership with Japanese Sojitz Corp.

The Singapore Baoli Bitumina Singapore announced its readiness to create production facilities within the borders of the TOP. The relevant memorandum was signed by representatives of the company and the Ministry of Color Industry during the Krasnoyarsk Economic Forum. It is planned to build a plant for the production of products based on bitumen, including for road and railway construction, waterproofing bridges and structures. Also, the plant can produce moisture-proof and roofing materials.

The amount of investment is estimated at $ 50 million.

A logistics center in the TOP "Khabarovsk" or "Komsomolsk" is ready to create China South City, with representatives of which the delegation from the Khabarovsk Territory met in February.

Project №8

ASEZ "Komsomolsk", Khabarovsk Territory, the city of Komsomolsk-on-Amur

Number of residents: 5

The volume of private investment: 15,23 billion rubles.

The volume of budget investments for infrastructure: 1,2 billion rubles.

According to Alexander Pekarsh, General Director of Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aviation Plant OJSC (KnAAZ OJSC as part of the Sukhoi Corporation), the plant has agreements with two potential residents of the TOP. These are GK Energia (power engineering) and the machine-tool company MTE KOVOSVIT MAS (part of the Russian MTE Group). The possibility of producing composite materials and alloys, and in the future - tools and machine tools is being considered.

Sergei Zhukov, vice-president of the Skolkovo Foundation for the development of activities in the Far East, who recently visited Khabarovsk, did not rule out the possibility of manufacturing components for the space industry in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. He linked such an opportunity with the commissioning of the Vostochny cosmodrome this year.

Project №8

ASEZ "Nadezhdinskoe", Primorsky Territory, the city of Artem

Number of residents: 3

The volume of private investment: 6,73 billion rubles.

The volume of budget investments for infrastructure: 3,2 billion rubles.

The core of the advanced development area is the Nadezhda Industrial Park, within which the Aquaresursy group of companies (through its subsidiary Inkom-DV) is implementing a transport and logistics complex (dry port) project for 27 million tons of cargo per year. The dry port will be able to handle wagons and vehicles for their sorting, storage, followed by the formation of ship lots for shipment from the ports of Primorye.

Around the logistics center of the center on the site of the TOP is planned to accommodate more than 200 industrial enterprises. Cargo for them will also pass through a dry port.

The intention to participate in this project, as well as in the TOP "Khabarovsk", was announced in the GC "Nevada" (owns a chain of hypermarkets "Samberi", as well as self-service stores in the Khabarovsk Territory, Jewish Autonomous Region and Primorye). “We are going to invest 2 billion rubles in the development of production in these two TOP. Perhaps we will not even limit ourselves to this amount, it can be a lot of money, ”said Yuri Yegorov, President of the Nevada Group. According to him, each hypermarket of the company already has its own production of finished products and semi-finished products, it is planned to increase the volume of production. The launch of new projects in the TOP will reduce costs. “As agriculture develops and chilled meat appears, we will purchase it. Already now we can say that we are creating demand for farms for pork, beef, lamb, giving the farms the opportunity to work under a firm secured order, ”explains in“ Nevada ”.
