Czech investments in gas bottle production in Belarusian Orsha
– A Czech investor has invested about €9 million in starting the production of gas bottles in the city of Orsha, Vitebsk Oblast, representatives of the Orsha District administration told BelTA.
The new enterprise OOO Cylinders Bel was registered as a resident company of the free economic zone Vitebsk in late 2017. It occupies spare premises of the Legmash factory and specializes in making import substitutes such as steel seamless gas bottles able to handle pressures of up to 300 atmospheres for industrial and medical gases, fire-extinguishing systems and food industry. The enterprise intends to reach the designed output capacity by 2023.
The project's implementation has created 45 jobs and satisfied the domestic demand for import-substituting products. More than 90% of the products it makes will be exported.
The enterprise will be solemnly inaugurated on 5 November.
