The Vaskiny Dachi research center on the Yamal Peninsula will receive new equipment for monitoring permafrost in 2018, Artyom Khomutov, leading research associate at the Institute of Earth’s Cryosphere of the Tyumen Research Center at the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Siberian branch, told TASS.

“The summer of 2017 was not as unusually warm as in 2016, but the active development of the processes changing the appearance of tundra landscapes did not slow down. Cavities on slopes continued expanding in the center of the Yamal Peninsula because of the melting of widely spread underground ice deposits. Owing to the support of the Russian Arctic Exploration Center and the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Area’s Department of Science and Innovations, the Vaskiny Dachi research center received fully equipped living containers for the temporary residence of researchers. In the spring of 2018, more container housing and equipment will be sent to the station for researchers studying snow cover,” TASS reported quoting Khomutov.

He said studies conducted in the spring of 2017 revealed increased content of chlorine in lake water.

“This requires additional and more detailed research and new samples. In addition, we continue studying gas emission craters. Further work on this project financed by the Russian Research Fund is aimed at creating a theoretical model of crater formation and assessing its likelihood in central Yamal in the future,” Khomutov explained.

Several craters have been found near the Bovanenkovskoye deposit on the Yamal Peninsula since 2014. They were all flooded. Such craters are created by underground gas emission. Last summer researchers found another two craters — one some 34 km away from the village of Seyakha and the other about 20 km from the village of Yaruta.

Construction work for the Pharmasyntez company hormonal drug plant will start in the region soon. This project is an import-substitution one in the purest sense, as this area of Russian market is currently dominated by foreign companies. 97% of hormonal drugs used in Russia are purchased abroad. There are no such projects implemented or being implemented, not only in our country but also in the entire former Soviet Union.

Investments in the plant construction are estimated at 3.3 billion Rubles; its launch is scheduled for 2020. The company intends to produce about 30 kinds of hormonal drugs here.

In 2015, at one of the meetings with Vladimir Yakushev, Governor of the Tyumen region, the company presented its future project for reconstruction and modernization of YugraPharm plant purchased by the company in Tyumen. A modernization of IV solutions workshop was performed in short order. The volume of production increased threefold. In addition, a solid dosage form workshop was opened at the plant, a warehouse and water treatment facilities were reconstructed and the production of type II diabetes treatment drugs was established. The product range was expanded and the amount of employees in the Tyumen company branch was almost doubled.

The next stage of the company development was the decision to implement an audacious project for hormonal drug production. At the end of 2017, Governor Vladimir Yakushev and the President of GK Pharmasyntez signed a Cooperation Agreement between the Tyumen region government and the company for implementation of this investment project, extremely significant for the Russian Federation and the Tyumen region. The most advanced production is being established, employing the cutting-edge global technology subject to the requirements of Russian and international GMP standards.

“Both import substitution and introduction of new technology are among our priority directions. The regional government is interested in emergence of new investors and is ready to provide them with integrated governmental support. We are extremely open for domestic investors as well, should they wish to expand production and create new enterprises and sectors of regional industry,” said the head of the region.
