Russia's Amur Region builds US$7.4 million feed plant
Russia's Amur region has started building a combined feed plant in the city of Belogorsk worth RUB230 million (US$7.4 million).
The local administration said in a statement Wednesday (Oct 10), as cited by RIA Novosti that the plant's maximum design capacity will amount to 57,000 tonnes of combined feed annually.
"The launch of the first stage of the plant and elevator is scheduled for September 2014. The plant will meet the needs of Nikolsk poultry farm in the Amur Region and supply feed to partners. The enterprise will be able to produce at least 15 tonnes of feed per hour. The project envisages two elevators with capacities of 10,000 and 20,000 tonnes," the statement said.
"Our products are intended for Russia's Far East as well as the other regions of Russia. The project will be supported by the budget and the government of the Amur Region," the local Governor Oleg Kozhemyako said.
