At the Prancor LLC, which has been operating since 2009 as part of Technopolis, in 2012 the Center for the Production of Carbon Nanostructured Material (CNM), also known as nanotubes, will be opened. The fields of its application are very diverse: from paint and varnish and galvanic coatings to additives in various construction materials.

The delegation’s members were particularly interested in the most advanced in Russia Center for the Development, Research and Production of Microelectronics GS NANOTECH, the opening of which is scheduled for September 2012. The fifth Technopolis plant will include the assembly and testing of multi-chip microprocessors with a manufacturing topology of up to 45 nm in PBGA and PQFN cases. The best Russian and European specialists were involved in the work at the new enterprise.

“In my opinion, the General Satellite Corporation’s Technopolis project is a model through which the Kaliningrad region can be one of the technological leaders in the Russian Federation.
