In Dubna, the go-ahead has been given for the construction of a cancer equipment manufacturing facility

June 2017. On 28th June within the Dubna Technology and Innovaton Special Economic Zone, the ceremonial laying of a capsule took place marking the beginning of a project to build Russia’s first factory producing medical equipment for radiotherapy.

PETRusCo is developing the project design documentation for the factory building, over a territory of 2,230 m2. The factory will be the dedicated location in the Russian Federation for the manufacturing of linear accelerators - radiotherapy equipment to treat malignant growths using radiation.

For the manufacturing of the accelerators, 80% American technology and 20% components produced in Dubna will be used. Locating production in Dubna will from the very earliest stage reduce the cost of equipment by 30% in comparison with similar imports, and will at the same time increase accessibility of technology and services to the population.
