  • ["Creditors of the local Severny Zavod plant have approved the plan of exterior management, Tatyana Kazakina, the enterprise's exterior manager, said on Tuesday. The plant stopped manufacturing its main product, S-300PMU surface-to-air missile system, seven years ago, Kazakina told the Military News Agency. The government relieved the plant from obligations to produce military equipment on November 27, 2000. Nevertheless, 80 percent of the enterprise's production capacities are still subject to mobilisation. According to Kazankina, the first stage of the plan aims to restore the plant's creditworthiness. Its debt, without taking into account fines, makes RUR156m (USD5.36m). It will be repaid by means of selling the enterprise's property, such as a recreation centre and kindergartens. Preliminary estimates show that about RUR163m (USD5.6m) can be gained this way. Besides, the enterprise will double the area of its premises put up for rent to 50,000 square metres. It is also hoping to get RUR60m (USD2.06m) as state compensation for the plant's conversion. The second task of the plan is to adapt the enterprise for manufacturing civil-purpose products, Kazakina said. Severny Zavod is planning to make Pegas minibikes, fire-extinguishers, gas-bags, ice-axes, etc. There is also a project of setting up an assembly centre for Mishka compacts. The enterprise will continue, however, to manufacture military-related products. For instance, it is planning to build a shop for repairs of combat equipment that it earlier produced" (Agentstvo Voyennykh Novostey 29 May 01).]
