A space satellite manufacturing plant will be built in the town of Shchyolkovo, just outside the Russian capital, Moscow Region Governor Sergei Shoigu said on Wednesday.

“It will be a new production facility,” he said, adding that a research hub will also be created there.

The plant will build about six communication and observation satellites a year, Shoigu said.

It will provide about 1,000 jobs and will be “environmentally clean,” the governor added.

He offered no timeline for the construction but said a land plot for the site was to be provided before December 15.
