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

Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev at a meeting with vice prime ministers said that a list of investment projects in the Far East has been approved, which will receive state support. According to the prime minister, the stake in the macroregion is made on the mechanism for the formation of territories of advanced social and economic development. He said that he signed a resolution on the Ministry of Regional Development: now they have the right to create and control the process of creating these territories, the website of the Russian government says. "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 said.

Struck by the hands

This list of investment projects was formed following the results of the meeting of the government subcommittee 12 February. It should be recalled that six positions were approved at that time: the construction of GOK Inaglinsky (Yakutia), the construction of a transshipment complex for transshipping coal in Vanino (Khabarovsk Territory), the development of coal mining in the Ural field (Khabarovsk Territory), the development of gold mining in the Selemginsky District (Amur Region ), the construction of a mining and smelting complex at the Ozernovskaya Zolotokudrom deposit (Kamchatka Krai), the first stage of the Taiga Mining Plant.

Deputy Prime Minister of Russia, plenipotentiary representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District, Yury Trutnev, thanked the head of the government for supporting the proposals of the subcommission. “There will be implemented six investment projects with a total amount of private investment 127 billion rubles. At the same time, it must be said that 52 billion (40%) has already been invested by investors. The amount of planned public funds is 16,8 billion. As a result of the implementation, 2025 billion rubles in tax collections will be received before 89,5, that is, budgetary investments for this period will pay off fivefold, ”Trutnev stressed.

“I hope that these new enterprises will be created for real, new jobs will appear and, consequently, the revenue base of the entire Far East will increase,” Medvedev concluded.

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 trans-shipment complex for transshipment of coal in the Muchke Bay of the Vanino seaport in the Khabarovsk Territory. The investor is OOO "Sakha (Yakutia) Transport Company" ("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.

· Railroads for general and non-public use - 2,5 billion rubles.

· External power supply networks of 110 kV (TP and LEP) - 745 million rubles.

· Water pipeline TPK Sakhatrans -26 million rubles.

The terminal will be a link in the logistics chain of coal transportation from the fields of Yakutia (Denisovsky, Chulmakansky, Lokuchakit and other deposits) through the port of Vanino to the countries of the Asia-Pacific region. The Khabarovsk Krai Government approved the initiative of Sakhatrans LLC to include the terminal in the boundaries of the port special economic zone.

In fact, the implementation of this project was started in 2005 by Sakhatrans, which was not at that time the Volga Group. The new terminal was an important link in the plans to develop the mining assets of South Yakutia and had to ensure the export of products to the countries of Asia. Then it was supposed to build a terminal complex on the area of ​​about 200 ha. The first stage was to provide transshipment of 6,2 million tons of coal, 6 million tons of iron ore concentrate, 1 million tons of sawn timber in containers to 2015 year. The second stage for transshipment of 9,3 million tons of coal, 8 million tons of iron ore concentrate, 1,5 million tons of sawn timber in containers was planned to be launched in 2020 year. In 2012, 30% of Sakhatrans was acquired by a consortium of Volga Group and Gunvor from the main owner of Bixcut Holdings. On its share now it is necessary 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, this mechanism is not very large amounts. This year - no more than 50 billion rubles. And our project alone costs 100 billion rubles. Also in the resolution are written down the government guarantees, which constitute 25%. In connection with the fall of the ruble, this is also not enough. It is required to increase such guarantees up to 50%, "Alexander Pochtar noted.

In addition, the village 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 business is very actively involved in the project, they are ready to go to the site of the industrial park. They need to finalize their business plans, after that we will have an understanding of what means an investor owns, in what engineering infrastructure new enterprises will need.

Today Selemdzhinsky region is powered by the high-voltage transmission line "February-Koboldo", whose load is 100%. The needs of new industrial facilities exceed the capacity of this line by a third.

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

We add one more important point: the company Petropavlovsk itself is in a difficult financial situation and only last week received the consent of the majority of shareholders to restructure the bonded debt by $ 310 million.

In March last year, the authorities of the Kamchatka Territory awarded the project with a status of a particularly 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 relevant memorandum was signed in the summer by the Chairman of the Far Eastern Bank of OAO "Sberbank of Russia" Evgeny Titov and Deputy General Director of OJSC "SigMA" Dmitry Przhibelsky. "The project has great prospects, and they are repeatedly increased when solving issues in energy and logistics," - says Mr. Przhibelsky.

Project №7

Advanced development areas:

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

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

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

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.

The logistics center in 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

TOR "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 the Director General of Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aircraft Plant (KnAAZ OJSC as part of the Sukhoi Corporation) Alexander Pekarsh, the plant has agreements with two potential residents of the PDA. These are Energy Group (power engineering) and the machine tool company MTE KOVOSVIT MAS (part of the Russian MTE Group). The possibility of producing composite materials and alloys, in the future - tools and machine tools.

Vice-president of the Skolkovo fund for the development of activities in the Far East Sergey Zhukov, who visited Khabarovsk recently, did not rule out the possibility of manufacturing components for the space industry in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. This opportunity he associated with the commissioning of the spaceport Vostochny this year.

Project №8

TOR "Nadezhdinskoe", Primorsky Krai, 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 territory of advanced development is the Nadezhdinsky industrial park, within which the Akvaresursy group of companies (through the Inkom-DV subsidiary) implements the project of the transport and logistics complex (“dry port”) 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 parties 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 Khabarovsk TOR, was announced in the Nevada Group of Companies (owns a network of Samberi hypermarkets, as well as self-service stores in the Khabarovsk Territory, the EAO and Primorye). "We are going to invest in the development of production in these two TORs for 2 billion rubles. Perhaps we will not even limit ourselves to this amount, it can be a lot of money, "- said the president of Nevada, Yuri Yegorov. According to him, in every hypermarket 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 the agriculture develops and chilled meat begins to appear, we will acquire it. Already now we can say that we form the demand for farms for pork, beef, lamb, enabling the farms to work under a solid secured order, "they explain in Nevada.
