December 18, 2014. Sverdlovsk Region’s large enterprises received 101bn RUR worth of investments in the first half of 2014, which was 12.4% more than a year earlier, Governor of Sverdlovsk Region’s Information Policy Department reports.

Over a half of this sum (57bn RUR) was invested in the processing industries and in the enterprises involved in production and distribution of electric power, natural gas, and water.

Investments were also on the rise in the healthcare and social welfare sector: these reached 2.4bn RUR, which was 1.5 times more than a year earlier. For one, an increase in investment was required because of putting up an innovative rehabilitation technologies clinic in Nizhniy Tagil.

Over a half of investments in the fixed assets of large enterprises (15bn RUR) were directed to metallurgical companies. This mostly has to do with the construction of a rolling mill at Kamensk Uralsky Foundry Plant and the reconstruction of a pipe-rolling facility at Seversky Pipe Plant.

Quite a bit (4.8bn RUR, up 65% on last year) was invested in enterprises producing vehicles and transport machinery such as Ural Locomotives and Uraltransmash.
