The implementation of the project for the production of sheet metal and tinplate in the Vitebsk region was discussed at the meeting with Vladimir Semashko, Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Belarus, in Miory.

Currently, railway communications have been put into operation, pile works have been completed for the foundations of the workshop building and equipment warehouse, and the work on the manufacture of foundation grids and construction of housing for factory workers is continued within the project. There are also works on the construction of infrastructure facilities to the plant.

Thus, the RUE "Vitebskenergo" is building and reconstructing the substation "Miory" with the re-commissioning of the 110 kV overhead line. The construction and erection works on the access road construction and drilling works on the arrangement of artesian wells were also implemented at the site. In addition, LLC "MMPP-groups", an investing company, started working on deliveries of the main process equipment under the contract with SMS groupGmbH (Germany).

The implementation of the investment project is under the constant control of the leadership of the State Committee on Science and Technology of the Republic of Belarus. Regular meetings are held on the implementation of this project with the participation of interested government bodies and investors.

It should be noted that with the commissioning of the plant in Miory, it is expected to create 670 new jobs, some of which will be filled by residents of the district. In addition, the social infrastructure will be also actively developed. Residential houses, a shopping and entertainment center and kindergartens are expected to be built. In general, it is expected to invest about 250 million euros in the project for the production of sheet metal and tinplate in the Vitebsk region.

White tin with the thickness of 0.1 mm will be produced at the plant.

Only one plant in the world can provide such a thickness (most modern factories provide the thickness of 1.4 mm). The release of the first production is scheduled for September 2018, and the designed capacity is expected to be reached in December 2019.
