Oleg Kozhemyako will help Dalnegorsk Mining and Chemical Company BOR by subsidizing the energy tariffs, DEITA.RU reports. An assignment was made by the Acting Governor of Primorsky Krai on November, 19 after meeting with the Mining and Chemical Company BOR staff in Dalnegorsk. Kozhemyako has also inspected the production.
The employees of the company expressed their dissatisfaction with the low salaries. In addition, people mentioned that the company was picking its own pocket because competition with China and other countries is extremely high and difficult to sustain. At present the debts of the company on electricity and taxes are more than 1 billion rubles.
Oleg Kozhemyako noted that the company needed a necessary support.
According to Kozhemyako, the authorities have various ways to solve this problem. The experience of Blagoveshchensk Shipbuilding Factory and Sakhalin mines can help. The Acting Governor of Primorsky Krai Oleg Kozhemyako suggested to minimize losses and reach a small profit. In opinion of the acting Governor of Primorye subsidizing the energy tariffs, improving production and providing bank guarantees through a loan can help.
Kozhemyako also noted that the owners of Dalnegorsk Mining and Chemical Company BOR were currently not in Russia. So it is not possible to negotiate with them now. But he promised to think how he can help. As an option - to act as a creditor in exchange for shares. Now the common task is to save job places and production.
