Tomsk Region And Gazprom Evaluate Import Substitution Roadmap Implementation
The visit of the gas holding delegation to Tomsk started with getting acquainted with new products of Tomsk industrial enterprises and R&D products of the universities. The delegates visited the largest machine-building enterprises in the region: Vakhrushev Tomsk Electromechanical Plant and research, development, and production company Micran. The parties discussed cooperation perspectives in new directions, having paid attention to providing reliable supplies and terms of production of equipment for subsidiary companies of the holding.
At the national research Tomsk Polytechnic University, the specialists of PJSC Gazprom looked at the scientific potential and new research and technology products of the university. For example, an import-substituting self-propelled crack detection complex for quality control of welded seams on pipes has already been certified in the voluntary certification system INTERGAZCERT, and now it is being set up for mass production. Based on the contract for research and development and engineering development works with the company Gazprom Transgaz Tomsk, the scientists at the Tomsk Polytechnic University are developing an experimental prototype of a hydrogen generator by conversion from natural gas.
At the session in the follow-up of the meeting, the deputy governor of the Tomsk Region in industrial policy, Igor Shaturniy, discussed the perspectives of broadening the use of Tomsk industrial goods with the representatives of PJSC Gazprom.
The participants of the meeting noted, that the growth of the volume of procurement was possible thanks to the widening range of Tomsk production and its high quality. The merchandise of Tomsk enterprises on the facilities of PJSC Gazprom is successfully solving the task of import substitution while competing with world brands. Sixty-two articles of Tomsk production from thirteen enterprises have already been included in the united registry of material and technical resources of the holding, and the pitches from twenty-four more enterprises in ninety-three types of import-substituting products are being considered. In 2021 twelve enterprises of the Tomsk Region received certificates of INTERGAZCERT.
