The Chusovoy Cement Plant Receives the Status of a Priority Investment Project

On Wednesday, November 6th the cement plant project in the city of Chusovoy, Perm Krai with an annual capacity of 300,000 tons becomes a priority investment project. The status allows the investor — “Karier” company — for land lease on favorable terms.

The decision was made at the Council on Entrepreneurship and Improving the Investment Climate under the Governor of Perm Krai. On top of preferential payments, the investor also gained administrative support of the local government.

“Colleagues claim they will build a plant and produce types of cement necessary for our industry, but are not available in the Perm Krai. And what’s also important is they promise a more environment-friendly production process,” says Governor Maxim Reshetnikov.

“Karier” is licensed for the extraction and primary processing of limestone and clay. The company promises to become a competition for existing cement producers.

“The bulk of cement production in the Perm Krai is split between only two enterprises today. New players on the market will encourage manufacturers to improve product quality and lower prices,” says CEO of “Karier” Yury Startsev. “The new enterprise will use the advanced dry production method instead of the obsolete energy-intensive wet method and also use energy-efficient solutions, and technologies that minimize negative environmental impact.”

An investment project worth 2.3 billion rubles implies the creation of a full-cycle plant with 300 employees. Investor intends to start works on the site in the second half of 2020. The cement plant is expected for commissioning in 2023 with a planned capacity of 300,000 tons by 2024.

According to Yuri Startsev, a residential building for employees with 100 apartments should be built in the village of Polovinka not far from the production site of the future enterprise.

The main consumer of Chusovoy plant products should be Yury Startsev's “New Ground” company, which is one of the country's largest developer of underground structures with the annual revenue of about 3.5 billion rubles.

The annual capacity of 2 million tons makes Gornozavodskcement plant of the AKKERMANN Group the largest cement producer in the Perm Krai. Among other plants in the region is the Pashi Metallurgical and Cement Plant producing alumina cement.

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree to provide 78 hectares of land in Chusovoy for industrial needs on October 1 this year. The cement production project was designed several years ago.
