Agreement on the creation of a mining cluster and the construction of a deep-water port of Indiga was signed
On the platform of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs an agreement was signed on implementation in the Nenets Autonomous Okrug (NAO) and the Komi Republic of the integrated infrastructure megaproject "Creation of national mining cluster with construction of Indiga deep sea port and Sosnogorsk - Indiga railway line in the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation". This was reported by the press service of the NAO administration.
"When there are ongoing attempts to isolate Russia from the world trade routes and world markets, we rely on the Arctic region, which gives us a unique opportunity to keep Russia's place in the world economy and create alternative routes for the movement of goods," - said the president of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs Alexander Shokhin.
The agreement provides for the creation of a transport, energy and telecommunications infrastructure for the reproduction of the mineral resource base, the development of mineral deposits and the development of mining projects in the Nenets Autonomous Okrug and the Komi Republic, as well as ensuring the access of railway communication to the Northern Sea Route through the deep sea port of Indiga.
According to the project, the port's cargo turnover at the initial stage will be 8 million tons, and by 2030 it will reach more than 80 million tons of cargo per year. The development of the Pizhma deposit and the creation of the seaport of Indiga with the Sosnogorsk-Indiga railway line are envisaged by a number of strategic documents of the regional and federal levels.
The deep-water ice-free seaport of Indiga is a priority investment project for the development of the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation and will become one of the base points of the Northern Sea Route (NSR). The railway line "Sosnogorsk - Indiga" is a strategic transport artery for increasing the traffic of the Northern Sea Route, reproducing the mineral resource base, ensuring the exploration and exploitation of deposits, as well as increasing the extraction of resources in the Komi Republic and the Nenets Autonomous Okrug in the interests of the socio-economic development of the territories of the Arctic zones of the Russian Federation. The Pizhemskoye titanium deposit is located in the Ust-Tsilemsky district of the Komi Republic, is the largest in Russia and the world in terms of resources and reserves of titanium and quartz raw materials, and is also unique in the presence of valuable associated minerals (iron, zircon, gold, diamonds, rare-earth metals).
GC "Rustitan" is a Russian mining holding, formed for the purpose of developing and developing the mineral resource base in the interests of providing the domestic industry with high value-added commercial products based on titanium and quartz raw materials.
