Two new greenhouse complexes with an area of over 17 hectares will be constructed in the Russian region of Stavropol. According to the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia, the projects have been discussed on a session of the regional Coordination Council for Development of Investment Activity and Competition.
“The Council’s members approved the projects and recommended them for further consideration to the head of the region,” the press office reports.
The investment project, implemented by “Dolina Solntsa” company, for construction of the first phase of a greenhouse complex in the Predgorny district is estimated at more than 2,3 billion rubles. A total area of the facility will amount to 2,3 billion roubles.
Resource-saving technologies of protected ground vegetables production will be applied at that greenhouse facility. Investor intends to create over 100 jobs at the enterprise with an average wage of 34,000 rubles.
A strategic partner of the project is “Belaya Dacha” Group of Companies, which will ensure 100% of products’ outlet. Not only traditional tomatoes are planned to be raised there, but also a crucially new line for the region is expected to be developed – cultivating ruccola and spinach.
As a director general of the company Vitaly Gurfinkel put it, its production technology is unique for Russia and was borrowed from Spain. It has already been tested and the results show that under Russian conditions this technology allows to raise lettuce in protected ground on a year-round basis.
