Optovolokonnye Sistemy (Optic Fiber Systems), a RUSNANO portfolio company, is likely to set up a joint venture with Japan’s Sumitomo Electric, RUSNANO said in a news release summing up the results of RUSNANO’s head Anatoly Chubais’ visit to Japan.

Specifically, key parameters of a roadmap outlining prospective cooperation between the two companies were thrashed out at a meeting with the management of Sumitomo Electric.

Meeting participants also reaffirmed their intention to examine the possibility of adding a second launch facility to Optic Fiber Systems’ plant to manufacture preforms – a key raw material for optical fibers. The parties also did not rule out the possibility of setting up a joint venture in 2016.

In addition to Optic Fiber Systems, Sumitomo Electric may partner up with RUSNANO in such other spheres as electronic data transmission systems, server data storage networks, local and long distance telephone services, the news release indicates.
