Technopolis new Russian electronics


Holding GS Group creates a "western Zelenograd": in the Kaliningrad region from the ground is being built with private funds electronics city center "Technopolis GS» — a unique combination of Russian production and design centers microelectronics, electronics and related industries.  

In the country's history, perhaps, there is only one good example of this urban development in the interests of the electronics industry: growing up in place of forests and wetlands near Moscow, Zelenograd, for his half a century bringing together the best resources of the Soviet Union in the field of electronics and its supporting branches of science and technology.

Yes, in the modern history of Russia there are precedents bookmark technological innovation city and for the development of high-tech and high-tech industries: it is "notorious" Skolkovo, and incipient Centre for Electronics in Troitsk, and "Potemkin village" Innopolis in Tatarstan, and clusters / SEZ Tomsk, Mordovia, etc. But most of them anyway is inspired and financed with the participation of the state (and this inevitably gives rise to burden the "bureaucracy" and "the attendant phenomena"), and is aimed not so much on the actual electronics and more on a variety of high-tech and fashion now "nanotechnology". In addition, these "policies" as a rule, are based on already existing structures (centers, institutes, businesses, towns or urban areas).

In this sense, erected holding GS Group in the Kaliningrad Region "Technopolis GS», besides that is created entirely by private investment and in fact in the "open field", from scratch, and it aims at the development of electronics, with its free market. And this is especially true in today's era, when every person on Earth has produced more than 10 billion silicon transistors — even more than the nails. A material for the production of high-purity silicon microelectronic planned to produce from … waste production of rice …

The purpose to the projector "Technopolis GS», as claimed by its creators — the creation of a new effective pole innovative development of Russia through the close interaction of Russian science and economics, as well as the creation of conditions for the sustainability of talented young Russian professionals for the benefit of the country.

"Technopolis GS» is created in the free economic zone in the Kaliningrad region free from buildings and woodland area near the City Gusev, Oleg Gazmanov homeland and actor Vladimir Vdovichenkova (up to 1946 is — a major administrative center of the East Prussian city of Gumbinnen leading story from time immemorialC the middle of the XVIII century. He even was part of the Russian Empire, and in June 1812 there was a guest Napoleon Bonaparte I).

The area developed territory technopolis is 230 hectares, and the total investment in the project (up to 2017) — more than 25 billion rubles. In created in Technopolis electronic industry cluster includes the construction of seven high-tech industries, 5 of which have already been built and work. The development plan of the project suggests that "Technopolis GS» will be one of the leading centers of scientific and technological development in Europe.

Technopolis will create new jobs: not less than 1500 mainly manufacturing (electronics) and about the same in the service sector. Already, the number of employees in the company and more than 2,000 people in the near future will be increased by almost half. Given that the population of Gusev is about 30 thousand people, "Technopolis GS» may well become one of the core components, the important factor is the construction at the Technopolis housing and public infrastructure.


Initiator, the general investor and executor of the project — the domestic holding GS Group, owned by Russian individuals.

Brand GS Group is relatively new on the market, but in fact it is a long-known player rebranding of the telecommunications market and a major producer of electronic equipment — the corporation "General Satellite» (General Satellite, GS). Products and technological solutions GS Group are used in particular in the Russian satellite broadcasting projects "Tricolor TV" and "NTV-Plus" as well as abroad.

Founded in 1991 in St. Petersburg, with sales and service of satellite broadcasting for the then nascent market in Eastern Europe, satellite television, by 1995, the company, due to successful marketing jobs abroad and on the domestic market, has become the exclusive provider of telecommunication equipment well-known foreign companies to broadcasters in Eastern Europe, as well as a major integrator in the field. In 1996, priority is given to high technology areas, the company is the sole supplier of subscriber equipment for the project "NTV-Plus" and is actively developing the federal market.

In 1999, the engineering stands out in a separate department, and offers its own assembly line of satellite TV set-top boxes under the brand Humax. In 2002, to promote the ongoing development and support in the global market open overseas units, the company becomes the largest state in the territory of present global distributor and integrator of satellite equipment.

In 2004, the engineering department develops the first GS subscriber television receivers with its own software, the production of which is located in Shenzhen (China). In 2005, the company became the main technical contractor of the Russian operator "Tricolor TV" with a subscriber base (at the moment) more than 12 million people. The company has received numerous awards at the shows, it was a reputable international industry association AEPOC.

Since 2008, the company creates its own electronics manufacturing in the SEZ Kaliningrad region and the fact gives the start of the investment project "TehnopolisGS". This is — the start of a new development strategy of the company, and within which highlighted three main areas of activity:

  1. Development of own production in traditional and in new areas for the company.
  2. Search for and implementation of breakthrough solutions in technological innovation.
  3. The creation and implementation of their own broadcast of "turnkey" for all types of broadcast television around the world.

In 2010, the company was the first in Eastern Europe launches 3D-broadcasting. In June 2013 the company conducts telestranslyatsiyu format Ultra HD.

The headquarters of the holding GS Group is located in Zug (Switzerland), and Russia (operating) headquarters — in St. Petersburg. Subsidiaries and divisions are located in Russia, the UK, Estonia, India, China, Pakistan, Cambodia and other countries. More than 3,500 people are employed in various projects of the holding in Russia and abroad.

Of recent high-profile achievements of GS Group may be noted running television broadcasting project in Cambodia with an investment of $ 15 million and half a million strong subscriber base, the opening competition for start-ups venture capital investment (Business incubator) and release digital TV receiver on the Russian microprocessor own design. In the process of implementation (2013-2014 gg.) Are international broadcasters projects in Southeast Asia, Pakistan, Indonesia and Bangladesh have a capacity of more than 10 million subscribers. Total investment GS Group to foreign broadcasters projects in the coming years will be about $ 300 million (about 10 billion rubles. — Compare with the more than 25 billion investment in Russian projects holding).

Technopolis GS: a new stage

In 2013, an international holding company with multiotraslevoy Russian history GS Group begins a new stage in the development of the "Technopolis GS». Under th
e brand name "Technopolis GS» advancing their own production and scientific expertise in the field of microelectronics and nanotechnology, the ability of venture investment and sustainable development model "innovative small city" in accordance with the basic principles of the most GS Group:

  1. use of their own breakthrough technologies;
  2. long-term investments in research and development;
  3. focus on creating products with high added value;
  4. the introduction of eco-technologies that increase the efficiency of the production process and reduces the negative impact on the environment.

"Technopolis GS» unites the industrial zone, a research center, a business incubator and a living area with a well-developed social infrastructure. This will create the conditions for self-domestic talented young professionals and raise to a qualitatively new level of development and manufacture of electronics in the North-West region of Russia.

The structure of "Technopolis GS» is planned to include:

  • industrial area: a large-scale production of the Russian innovative products in the field of electronics and related fields;
  • Research Center — a platform for the generation of new ideas, developments of Russian specialists;
  • business incubator and venture capital fund to build long-term business growth conditions on the basis of the draft Russian and foreign creative teams;
  • educational center for training technopolis;
  • living area: gated European-level cultural and entertainment facilities.

At this point in the "Technopolis GS» already has six high-tech industries

Construction of the remaining facilities is expected to begin in the near future.

GS Nanotech

Center at international level for development and production of microelectronics and nanoelectronics GS Nanotech (JSC «GS-Nanotech") is:

  1. a leading technology center in the Russian microelectronics with a total area of over 3,500 square meters;
  2. "Clean rooms" Class 10000 — 700 square meters. m;
  3. array packages more than 10 million chips per year, with the topology 45/28/22 nm;
  4. for the encapsulation of the circuit boards — 200 sq m a year;
  5. create a center for nanotechnology research and application of research results in new types of electronic components.

GS Nanotech — is currently the only company in Russia that provides services to external customers encapsulation of chips (including the latest). In July 2013 came on center Planned production and capacity (1 million chips per month.). At this point, they need to provide chips for television receivers "Tricolor TV" and "NTV-Plus", produced at the plant in the neighborhood of the same holding company DTN.

The budget of the project to create a center of 4.2 billion rubles. GS Group partner on this project (delivery of the equipment, the organization of the production process) became the European manufacturer of memory chips Portuguese company Nanium (In the past — Portuguese unit global brand of memory Quimonda) With experience in this field for over 14 years. In Nanium also was trained workers GS Nanotech.

In addition to the production of chips (chip encapsulation) in the GS Nanotech organized its own design center, which is engaged in the development and distribution of chip orders to the appropriate chips. Area Engineering Research Center — 3200 m. m, the area of industrial building — 3,000 square meters. m All production equipment is installed in cleanroom class ISO 6 (Class 1000) or ISO 7 (Class 10,000) — their area is now 700 square meters. m, but can easily be doubled (e.g., in the case of arrival at the large external customer chip array packages).

Production capacity is planned with a large margin: While domestic orders (work at a nearby factory DTN) make up a significant share of the production orders GS Nanotech, but the company is clearly aimed at the export market. Since the 2015 GS Nanotech is scheduled to be on the level of production of 14 million chips per year.

GS Nanotech Center is located in the trendy "title" building officials now calling card around the technopolis.

Behind the building — shop other businesses holding in front of him — the open field, where, in fact, is expected to build a housing estate and infrastructure of the village.

Interim results Thus, in the framework of the "Technopolis GS» already really established and is developing a cluster of electronic and microelectronic industry in the westernmost Russian, aprbiruetsya model of innovative development of the small town of Russia, which can later be used for the economic recovery of other small cities in the country.

Create new jobs in the region, conducted a comprehensive regional economic development, the improvement of social infrastructure, creating conditions for the development of innovation.

It is important that the work is carried out effectively only commercial investor (holding GS Group) with Russian roots (of course, the "moral" support of the administration of the region — a free economic zone).

In 2010, the "Technopolis GS» visited the high government delegation led by Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov, who said in part: "There is a private business — well done: they are without federal support, with, of course, Kaliningrad authorities (then headed by Georgy Boos. — Ed.) have created a company and develop it successfully … This is not a screwdriver assembly, and production of a completely different quality because all the stuffing — chips, software and hardware management system of this instrument board — created our Russian company. "

In September 2011, the inter-regional conference in Cherepovets innovative project "Technopolis GS» was presented VV Putin, later technopolis projects were commended the chapter "RUSNANO" Anatoly Chubais and Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Zhukov.

Completion of the construction of all facilities of "Technopolis GS» scheduled for 2016.

The benefits of electronic industry cluster "Technopolis GS»
