  • Availability of skilled workforce for deployment of innovations and product line management

Auto components


  • The region provides more affordable land parcels for manufacturing in comparison with neighboring regions

  • Skilled workforce in Pskov is more affordable than in neighboring regions.

  • It’s the only industrial SEZ nearby, thus providing promising opportunities for investors. All other SEZs that specialize in manufacturing of auto components are located near Moscow or other automotive clusters.

  • Access to the EU market, while the manufacturing is based Russia.

Growth potential

  • Currently, the Pskov region produces lifting and handling equipment, car electric motors, relays, insulated wires and cables, galvanic cells and batteries, etc.

  • The close proximity to such manufacturers as Volkswagen, Toyota, Ford, Hyundai, etc. located in the traditional centers of St. Petersburg and Moscow should create opportunities for supply of raw materials and components.

  • The proximity to European countries facilitates sustainable foreign trade and raw materials supply.


This SEZ specialization is associated with perspective polymer cluster (a cluster of polymer processors) in Moglino SEZ. The anchor tenant of the cluster is Titan-Polymer Plant LLC (Pskov), developing industrial complex for production of PETF pellets (polyethylene terephthalate pellets) and BOPET films (biaxally oriented polyethylene terephthalate film).

The cluster will contribute to the development of related industries of radio electronics, fibers and threads, nonwovens, flexible packaging, printed products, plastic products. It will involve small business into cooperation

Utility equipment


  • Access to established demand markets in the Pskov and neighboring regions.

  • Local fuel (e.g. peat and wood chips) may stimulate demand growth. The Pskov region produces over 44 million cubic meters of timber per year, including 1.4 million cubic meters of coniferous trees. In addition, there are 329 deposits in the Pskov region with reserves of 500 million tons of peat with 40% relative humidity.

  • Lower production costs compared to other regions may attract large domestic companies to invest in Pskov.

  • The industry gives the Pskov region the following opportunities:
    • The current industry presence in the Pskov region can be expanded under regional industry programs.
    • High concentration in other regions of Russia.
    • Future equipment renewal (about 80% of utility equipment is worn out) will lead to high demand on utility equipment in the Pskov and neighboring regions

Development opportunities in the region

  • Currently, the Pskov region produces industrial and central heating boilers, heat generators, polyurethane pipes, etc.

  • The proximity of the region to the main markets of the European Union and the traditional centers of Moscow and St. Petersburg is favorable for raw materials import and export of finished products.
