In 3–5 years, the German Scheffler plans to localize production of bearings in the Ulyanovsk Region, as Maksim Shakhov, the Company’s Executive Director, told reporters on Monday.

“Very large bearings are used in wind generators, and we have plans to localize the production of such bearings in the future. <...> I think that the localization process will go at a rapid pace; it is about the next three to five years,” he said. Mr. Shakhov added that the relevant negotiations are in progress with Fortum and Rostec.
