Electroshield launched the construction of a new plant worth over RUB $1 billion. The plant for the manufacture of transformers is to be launched by the end of 2016.

The construction of the new building with a total area of 18,000 square meters is taking place on Zavodsky Highway. Warehouse, production and administrative facilities of the plant will be located in this area. Electroshield-Samara, which is 100% owned by the French holding company Schneider Electric, plans to attain production capacity of 800 dry transformers per year within the first 12 months of operation. The key differences that will set these transformers apart are lower price ranges and shorter production time. It is difficult to estimate the payback period for the new plant in Samara, but company management is confident that the product will be in high demand among clients. Here is what the President of Electroshield-Samara Eric Brisset told Business FM:

“These transformers are used for power distribution, and any infrastructure can use them. Say, there is some building, a new plant that requires energy – an airport or train station, for example. All of these investments will be in demand in Russia. There are also major companies that transfer electric power in Moscow or nearby regions. The oil market also needs them, so these transformers will be in high demand.”

In spite of the crisis in Russia, French businessmen are placing their bets on the Samara plant. Eric Brisset continues:

“Strategies are designed for several years, especially in Russia. The most important thing is that these transformers are in demand on the market. The market requires innovation and import substitution. It doesn’t matter whether or not we are in a crisis. So it’s best to start investing, which is why we placed our bets on Samara, on Russia, and are already starting construction work.”

The meeting was attended by Chairman of the Board of Directors of Electroshield Samara and Senior Vice President of Schneider Electric Russia’s Energy Division Joachim Dams, President of Electroshield Samara Eric Brisset, and Samara’s Minister of Industry and Technology Sergei Bezrukov.
