Today we are amongst others developing 3 solar projects with 185 MW, 2 biodiesel plants with 140 000 tons and a starch wheat processing factory, total value €625 million.
Besides these large projects, we develop also a range of smaller projects in specialty food production and agriculture, with investments from about 1 million Euro and up.
MDT was set up at the end of 2014, as a result of merging several companies, which have been active since the beginning the 1990#s in Ukraine, Hungary and Russia.
The company specialises in infrastructure, agricultural and food production projects. Agriculture and food production in particular are booming because of the sanctions. This gives our investors much higher returns and values than similar projects in Europe.
MDT are working with Russian as well as European industry and private investors. We are especially working with private investors and family offices, who are now increasingly interested in participating in our projects, as they normally do not have any possibility to directly participate and profit from such economic developments today in Russia. According to the Prequin Infrastructure and Alternative Investor Outlook for 2016, 42% of investors that invest directly are looking to increase this
type of exposure and none are looking to decrease their direct allocations. These tendencies we feel very much as interest and requests for investments are continuously increasing.
Therefore, we also invest into the development of our firm’s staff, which are a group of specialists in project development, trade and finance, all with long standing experience in the Russian as well as international business. The challenges that lie ahead in 2016 for MDT concern finalising some
of the financing pools for our projects. For the achievements of our work, we have recently been awarded the 2016 Distinguished Entrepreneur Award from the National Foundation for Business Development, which has been set up by order from President V. Putin in 2015.
