"Scientific-Research Institute of Semiconductor Devices" (NIIPP) launched serial production of LEDs in the project for the construction of the plant in Tomsk LED lamps.
This was announced on Thursday by the chief engineer of the Institute Vladimir Kovalenko.
NIIPP included in the holding company (integrated structure) in the area of microwave technology, semiconductor devices and materials under the control of "Russian electronics." The company intends to build a factory of LED lights in the full cycle of the Tomsk special economic zone (SEZ), the construction of the plant is due to start in 2012, the launch is scheduled for 2013. The cost of the project — 6.5 billion rubles. According to Kovalenko, the plant will set up a full production cycle, from growing crystals to manufacture LED lamps.
"We are currently designing the plant, at this stage, invested hundreds of millions of rubles. Already established legal entity, a land plot, purchased the equipment. In NIIPP went serial production of small lots of LEDs on the equipment that is located here. That is, the development of the technology is the manufacture of light-emitting diodes ", — said Kovalenko.
According to him, after the launch of the plant output will exceed 100 million LEDs per year.
"We plan to launch the second year of the plant to produce 110-120 million light-emitting diodes on a year and half a million lights. Consumers will be like in Russia and abroad. This market is abysmal, "- he said.
Earlier it was reported that the advisory council for technology-innovative special economic zones (SEZ) at Ministry of Economic Development in December 2010 awarded the status of a resident, LLC "Center for Basic LED technology — Tomsk" ("daughter" of "Russian Electronics") for the development, design and production materials and designs of lighting products based on light-emitting diodes with an investment of 5.3 billion rubles. It was later re-evaluation of construction, cost of equipment specified. As a result, the project cost has increased to 6.5 billion rubles.
In May 2010, the management of "Roselektronika" stated that the company will create three basic introduction of LEDs in the center of St. Petersburg, Moscow and Tomsk, which will form the basis of the Russian LED industry.
JSC "Russian electronics" was formed in early 2009 on the basis of state holding company "Russian electronics."
Currently, "Russian Electronics" as a holding and management company consolidates potential of about 80 enterprises of electronic industry. The company specializes in the design and manufacture of electronic products, electronic materials and equipment for their production, as well as microwave technology, semiconductor devices and materials.
