New contractors for the second phase construction of Cosmodrome Vostochny and the town of Tsiolkovsky might be selected by a tender in coming months, Interfax news agency reports on Tuesday.
The Federal Russian Space Agency retains its responsibilities as a coordinating customer, however, the Russian Construction Ministry is expected to become a direct customer of the second phase of the town of Tsiolkovsky and social infrastructure facilities.
“The Construction Ministry being a relative governmental body is supposed to put out tenders and select contractors for the social infrastructure building. Civil specialists with a corresponding experience in the housing construction are likely to win the tenders. Meanwhile, the Special Construction Agency of Russia (Spetsstroy) has strong chances to win a tender for the building of a ground-based space infrastructure”, - says the source.
