Maryino and Group of Companies “Sevcable” Signed a Cooperation Agreement
The group of companies “Sevcable” plans to set up production in Maryino Industrial Park. According to expert evaluation, investments into the new plant may amount to RUB 2-3 billion.
On August 28, the developer of Maryino VTB Development and the group of companies “Sevcable” signed a cooperation agreement, featuring a possibility to accommodate production facilities to make cabling and wiring on the territory of Maryino Industrial Park. This agreement is bringing into life the deal made by “Rosskat” and “Sevcable” companies at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2017.
According to Artem Pidnik, CEO of GC “Sevcable”, experts assess the amounts of investments into a new plant’s setting up at about RUB 2-3 billion. He emphasized that it would be possible to announce a more precise amount of investments after approval of project requirements and design specifications for construction of new production facilities, approximately in October, 2017. At the moment, the enterprise is engaged in joint design of superconducting materials and use of composite materials in cabling and wiring products with “Rosnano” company and plans to expand the range of products at the expense of manufacturing not only cables but also other electrotechnical products.
Currently, GC “Sevcable” jointly with “Rosskat” company determine production facilities, technologies and the area of the land plot required for the new plant. At the moment, the group of companies “Sevcable” occupies the area of 14 hectares in Kozhevennaya line of Vasilyevsky Island, however, thanks to implementation of the Lean Manufacturing Program and updating, they’ve managed to decrease the required facilities down to 10 hectares. “We plan to use only the state-of-the-art world-class technological equipment at the Maryino venue, because of that the required production area should decrease as well as the area of the land plot. We’re sure that the new production site will become the first step to setting up a plant satisfying the Industry 4.0 requirements”, says Mr. Pidnik.
“We want this project to become a successful example of a plant’s transfer from the so-called ‘grey belt’ of the city to an industrial park, where it will be comfortable for production to develop. Land plots in Maryino are fully provided with road and transport infrastructure. The city planning documents were finalized and approved. All that allows after the deal for purchase of the land in the industrial park is made, to immediately start plant designing and fully bring the project into life in 1.5—2 years. Because of that I’m absolutely sure that “Sevcable” will manage to keep the time-limits, and we will help with that,” comments Alexander Parshukov, JSC VTB Development Director for investments.
We remind you that Maryino is the only in St. Petersburg industrial park in the greenfield format. The first stage of the project is 97% filled in. In 2015, the first manufacturing enterprise – the plant of Finnish paints and coating producer Teknos – started operation on the territory of Maryino, in May 2016, the plant of Russian-French DIPO auto parts company was commissioned. On May 24, 2017, the logistic complex of the “Admiral-Terminal-SV” group was opened. “yo-AUTO”, “Diesel-Energo” and “TechnoEXIM” are among the residents of the project.
