Two new projects approved by Supervisory Board

The Russian company "Solar Systems", owned by Chinese Amur Sirius, is planning to build in the SEZ "Alabuga" a plant for the production of polysilicon solar panels. This is a relatively new technology, thus panels produced according to this technology surpass by their characteristics previously produced solar panels. Recently polysilicon cost has dropped significantly, allowing its mass production.
"Solar Systems" is considering to build in a number of Russian regions solar power plants that lately will get state support according to federal legislation. At the same time, these measures require equipment production localization not less than 70% and also set tough sanctions for failure of scheduled power plants commissioning dates.
In this regard, "Solar Systems" needs to build as soon as possible its first Russian plant to produce solar panels – the company wants to launch production in the SEZ "Alabuga" in July 2016. Production output is 330,000 units per year with installed capacity of 100 MWt. The investment volume of the project is 5.67 billion rubles, including 5 billion rubles of the company's own funds. Annual tax revenues will amount 430 million rubles.
The President of the Republic of Tatarstan and the Supervisory Board members supported the project "Solar Systems", Rustam Minnikhanov requested to support the company in a prompt passage of all necessary procedures in the Ministry of Economic Developmentof the Russian Federation.
The second new project, considered today by the Supervisory Board involves the construction of a plant for the production of plastic packaging and plastic automotive components. Investor is a company "Mir Upakovki", which already has a main factory in St. Petersburg, processing about 1,000 tons of raw materials per month, and a plant in Krasnoyarsk processing 130 tons of raw materials per month.
In the SEZ "Alabuga" the company would like to produce not only polymer packaging, but also automotive components made of polymers. At the initial stage the resident in early 2015 plans to locate a production in rental premises in "Synergy" industrial park and simultaneously run the construction of a plant in the SEZ. The initial planned investment is 1.6 billion rubles, in the future construction of the plant will be carried out at the generated cash flow. During 10 years, the company plans to increase processing of polymers in the SEZ "Alabuga" from 250 tons per month to 2,000 tons per month, total cost of the project is 4 billion rubles.
As was noted during the presentation, "Mir Upakovki" is working together with Tatarstan polymer producers - "Nizhnekamskneftekhim" and "Kazanorgsintez" provide two thirds of all polymer supply. Thus, the plant in the SEZ "Alabuga" will bring production closer to raw materials.
Members of the Supervisory Board of the Special economic zone "Alabuga" also voiced for the project.
"Alabuga Motors" – a resident of the SEZ since March 2014, initially planned to produce special equipment for motor vehicles. The Supervisory Board has considered the request of the company to supplement the agreement by the permit to assembly Chinese cars. As mentioned by the company representatives, this will allow to diversify its business and reduce risks. «Alabuga Motors» is ready to start semi knock-down cars assembling of several brands, particularly Dongfeng in January of 2015 and within two years to go further by combining this with welding and painting car bodies. This request was supported by the Supervisory Board of the SEZ.
Finally, LLC "East Bolt Yelabuga" - supplier of bakery products for "McDonalds" - requested the allocation of a new and a larger plot of land in the SEZ due to some changes in project implementation.
