SHCHELKOVO, Moscow region, August 25 (Itar-Tass) —— A satellite making plant will be built in the Moscow region, regional Governor Sergei Shoigu said.
The governor ordered land to be allocated for the project in Shchelkovo and plans for connecting the plant to power mains to be prepared by December 15, 2012.
“We would like it [the plant] not just to be here but to work comfortably. These questions have to be solved by December 15,” Shoigu said at a meeting with Gazprom Space Systems officials.
The company’s Director-General Nikolai Sevastyanov told the governor about the construction plans and said that land had been allotted for the project in Pereslavl but it would be better to open the enterprise in Shchelkovo which already has the company’s telecommunication centre and specialists.
The plant will make six satellites a year, which will allow Russia to reinforce its space capabilities in orbit.
Shoigu ordered a town with all infrastructure, including a kindergarten and a school, to be built for the plant personnel.
He also thinks that Gazprom Space Systems could compile a forest cadastre in the Moscow region. “We need facilities in our region to be monitored constantly and promptly. If you can compile a cadastre of all land from the legal point of view, we will place an order with you. If you confirm that you can do it within six months, we will be more than happy,” Shoigu said.
