VIS Group becomes the concessionaire for the Khabarovsk Ecotechnopark project


OOO RusEcoGroup, the parent company of VIS Group's environmental and housing and utilities division, was the only participant in the concession for the creation of the Khabarovsk Ecotechnopark. The project provides for the construction of a municipal solid waste (MSW) sorting facility with an annual capacity of 220,000 tons. The modern technologically advanced eco-technopark, created within the framework of the Ecology National Project will ensure the sorting of 50% of waste generated in the Khabarovsk Territory.

The concession agreement provides for the design, financing, construction and operation of MSW sorting facilities and was concluded for a period of 25 years. Investments in the project are estimated at 1.4 billion rubles. The new complex will serve an area with a population of over 617,000 people.

The agreement on project implementation was signed in 2020 following a tender announced on a private concession initiative. The Ministry of Housing and Communal Services of the Khabarovsk Territory acts as the public partner on behalf of the regional government. The project was initiated by the private investor.

“For VIS Group, joining the project to create an eco-technopark in the Khabarovsk Territory is another step in the implementation of the strategy to create an environmental division. We have gained experience in several regions and are working on a number of projects that meet the goals of the national Ecology project and the reform of the MSW management sphere. Today, partnerships have been built with federal structures in charge of the industry, including the Russian environmental operator. It is necessary to work out the issue of facility locations together with the grantor and to begin their design after the allocation of the land plot. According to our calculations, design and construction may take under three years,” said Konstantin Pulikovsky, Chairman of the Board of Directors of RusEcoGroup.

Today, VIS Group's environmental and housing and utilities division includes a regional MSW management operator and a major carrier, and a concession is underway to agree on the final parameters for the creation of two 800,000-ton MSW sorting complexes in the Novosibirsk region.
