Basalt fiber factory to be set up at Petrozavodsk industrial site

Basalt fiber factory to manufacture continuous basalt fiber and basalt reinforcing rods for road construction will be a resident of the future industrial site in Petrozavodsk. What is more, it is planned to establish a house-building plant and other production facilities at the same site.

Irina Miroshnik, the mayor of Petrozavodsk, says that the municipal and regional authorities are not going to be restricted with local investors. Thus, they invite entrepreneurs from all regions of Russia to take part in the project. At present, the design works are completed and MEP systems are being installed on the territory allocated for the construction.

Another basalt fiber factory may be established in a Karelian city of Kondopoga, in the Priority Development Area. In spring the request was filed to create the Priority Development Area in the city.

Last year the project «Organizing the production of continuous basalt fiber (roving) and road geotextile grids” was presented in Karelia. It was Trading House “Anteko” that presented the project, which was recognized as important for the region development.
