Two years of idling in the Primorskiy plant for the production of SF6 insulated switchgear: will the change of the customer help out the crisis

In the town of Artyom, Primorsky Krai, the plant for the production of gas insulated switchgear - complete switchgears with gas insulation - has been idle for two years. The reason for the downtime of Hyundai Elektrosistemy LLC, built before the APEC summit as an example of successful investments in the Russian Far East, is the lack of orders for the production of the main part of electrical equipment from the UES Federal Grid Company.

When deciding to build a plant, FGC UES and Hyundai Heavy Industries signed a long-term contract for the supply of electrical products with localization of production in Russia. However, according to JSC FGC UES itself, the problem lies in the unresolved issue of duties on GIS components. “Now the rate of customs duty for finished GIS is 0%, for GIS components - from 5% to 20%. This procedure complicates the development of import substitution and the growth of production volumes of domestic equipment ", - notes FGC.

Back at the end of 2013, Hyundai Electrosystems LLC, with a request to provide the plant with tax benefits due to the lack of customers, turned to the deputies of Primorye (at the end of 2013, the LLC received 132,763 million rubles of net loss). However, the problem remained unresolved.

Perhaps the problem will be able to find a positive resolution when changing the customer from JSC FGC UES to JSC Russian Grids.

Rosseti reports that they are considering the possibility of concluding a long-term agreement on the organization of GIS with the South Korean Hyundai Heavy Industries, but now with the proviso that the cost of the equipment will depend on market conditions.

Until the end of 2018, the companies of the group will need 525 GIS - Rosseti notes. For example, GIS of South Korean production has already been used several times at the facilities of Rosseti, in particular at the Olympic facilities in Sochi. The grid infrastructure of New Moscow may become a new project requiring GIS.
