The investor is Ovoshchi Chernozemya, which is the part of Ecoculture Holding. The overall project budget totals to 24 bln RUB. The new enterprise will create 1128 job opportunities. The first greenhouse cucumbers will be yielded in October 2017. Project completion is scheduled for 2019. The greenhouse complex will be the largest in Europe, totally automated. In general, by 2020, the area size of the holding greenhouses will reach 468 ha, with investment as of 120 bln RUB: Eco-culture intends to build 60 ha of greenhouses in the Moscow Region, 80 ha in the Tula region, 85.6 ha in the Lipetsk region, 100 ha in the Stavropol Territory, 60 ha in the Voronezh Territory and in Kazakhstan.

First phases in the Sverdlovsk region and Chuvashia are expected to occupy 10 ha each, further expansible, with modular technology applied. The Chuvashia site is already defined, documentation filing is underway. The approximate investment amount will account for 25 bln RUB. The main crops to be produced by Renova are cucumbers and tomatoes, with design capacity as of 75 k tpa.
Agro-Region Company, which builds the mushroom farm in the Zaraisky area of the Moscow region, intends to start construction activities in June 2017. By the end of the year, the pre-commissioning activities will be launched. The commissioning of the enterprise is scheduled for February 2018, with reaching the project capacity by the end of the next year. The first phase is the construction of the mushroom farm as of 12 k tons and manure manufacture as of 37.5 k tons. Project cost is estimated at 2.3 bln RUB, 350−380 mln RUB of which will be reimbursed by the Moscow authorities. The second phase stipulates for the construction of mushroom and vegetable processing facility 300 mln RUB worth. The construction will be launched in the late 2018, after the CAPEX being reimbursed.
The complex is designed on an area of 4.5 ha, with first phase comprising 1.5 ha. The annual output capacity of the first phase will total to 1.2 k tpa of cucumbers and 200 tons of greenery.
