Perm Engine Company: reclaiming territory

On December 9 Perm got a visit from general director of the United Engine Corporation Vladislav Masalov. He visited with the governor of the Perm region Viktor Basargin. The reason for the conversation was evaluating the organization of the new production capacity at the Perm Engine Company.

The results of the meeting were agreements on beginning procedures to transfer to the region the plot of land that at present is on the balance sheet of the Russian Ministry of Defence (the territory is a former military installation in the Motovilikhinsky district on the Vostochny bypass). After the transfer to the region, construction will begin on a new factory facility (planning for the manufacturing facility is currently underway).

Vladislav Masalov, general director of the United Engine Corporation,

"At present the United Engine Corporation is implementing a program of technical retooling. This affects the Perm Engine Company, and so by order of the Russian ministry of industry and trade Denis Manturov we have worked out two possibilities  reconstruction of PMZs existing facilities, and moving the factory outside of the town. At present there is active discussion of the second suggestion: materials are under perusal of the Ministry of Trade, and we are hoping that the plan will be approved. In my opinion, it is the right choice and in the long-term will be the more efficient one.

Sergey Popov, managing director of Perm Engine Company:

"The Perm regional government is planning for us to act as the anchor builder for new facilities (all together 200 hectares, and we only need 40 for the plant): the main part of the facility is proposed under the creation of the technopolis. There will be small manufacturing companies which will work in cooperation with our plant. Regarding timescales, planning work will take all of 2014 and half of 2015. And from mid-2015 we will be able to start construction. We are giving a max of five years for construction. In 2017-2018 we will have sharp growth in volume, and without the launch of this capacity PMZ will end up in a difficult situation in terms of fulfilling state defence contracts.
