UEIP implements non-nuclear business development project on available production sites

March 21, 2014. Ural Electrochemical Plant (UEIP) is now actively implementing its project called Production Site Topology that is part of a new strategy adopted by TVEL, a fuel company. The strategy is aimed at leadership in the non-nuclear, yet promising, segments of industry. The idea is to locate new production facilities on the premises of currently unused and soon-to-be-available production sites at UEIP (some 34,000 sq m altogether), the company’s press service refers to the Project Curator Andrei Fedorov’s report as stating.

To ensure speedy communication with the potential site residents, a database of available production sites has already been created, and typical rental and electric power supply contract-signing procedures have been developed. In addition, talks were held with the potential residents; the latter have also been shown the facilities. The plant is currently working on how to provide access to its guarded premises for outside businesses.

‘We offer attractive terms to investors: extensive infrastructure, including asphalt roads, railways leading up to Sverdlovsk Railways network, and plentiful electric and heating power supply. The plant’s being close to the city and its transport network a well as its scientific and industrial cluster are also important. Plus, all this comes at a rather low rent and 24/7 security surveillance,’ Fedorov said.

The founding fathers of the project predict this will open up wide horizons for large-scale development of non-nuclear businesses on the available sites, where all the energy, infrastructure, and cadre potential lies in store. Put together, these factors will result in job retention for the residents of Novouralsk and more efficient use of the existing resources.
