Bashkiria plans to increase production of NEFAZ buses by one third

In Bashkiria, the production of passenger buses at PJSC NEFAZ is planned to increase from 2 thousand to 3 thousand units per year by 2024. This investment project for the production facilities development, as well as the creation of an industrial technopark in the republic, became the key items of the working trip of the Prime Minister of the Government of Bashkortostan Andrei Nazarov to Naberezhnye Chelny, where he visited an engine plant, an automobile plant, a scientific and technical center, and ZF KAMA.
During the meeting with the General Director of KAMAZ PTC Sergei Kogogin, options were considered for creating an industrial technopark in the city of Tuimazy at the unused property complex of TZA PJSC, as well as the development of production facilities for the production of passenger transport at NEFAZ PJSC in Neftekamsk.
It was decided that the technopark in Tuymazy will belong to the republic by 49% and KAMAZ PJSC by 51%. This will create new industries, jobs, and revenues to the budget of the republic. Other enterprises will also be able to become residents of the technopark.
As part of the investment project, during which it is planned to develop production capacities to produce NEFAZ passenger buses, it is planned to update their model range and increase production to 3000 vehicles per year. These indicators should be achieved by 2024. The forecast for the volume of sales at the end of 2021 is 2,000 units. The amount of investment at this stage is 4 billion rubles.
“PJSC KAMAZ is a strategic partner of Bashkortostan. We are facing serious tasks that need to be solved in close cooperation,” Andrei Nazarov said.
