“Atomredmetzoloto traditionally provides various kinds of assistance to the areas where it is present. Here families of many of our employees live, children grow up, they may come to work for our enterprise in future, and because of that social responsibility is one of the components of the company’s activities. ARMZ has come to Bauntovsky Evenkiysky District in earnest and for long. It is exactly here that a modern center of Russian uranium extraction is formed for providing nuclear and energy security of our Motherland”, Alexander Glotov emphasized.
The first projects have already been determined. The uranium extracting enterprise also assists in training professionals in the Bauntovsky subsidiary of the Ulan-Ude Engineering and Pedagogical College.
“The State Corporation has never kept apart from support of the region where it is present. A cooperation agreement was concluded by the government of the Republic of Buryatia and State Corporation Rosatom already in December, 2012. JSC Khiagda became a member of the consolidated group of Rosatom taxpayers as a part of this agreement, which allowed to increase deductions to the republican budget. The most part of the said funds is directed to solution of infrastructure problems of Bauntovsky District, and construction of a bridge over the Vitim river in the village of Romanovka became the most serious project. The agreement with JSC Khiagda will help us to go on with improvement of the people’s quality of life”, Nikolay Kovalev, the district head, emphasized.
