In this thread you can post pictures and/or info of industrial zones in your country. By industrial zones I mean, clusters of factories, oil refineries, ports.. you get the idea! Don't post skyscrapers or commie blocks, although you can post pictures of industrialized parts of you city. You may also post pictures of economic zones in construction, but please don't post announcements that haven't been materialized.

I'm going to start with OKTA the oil refinery north of Skopje.

Here in Bulgaria we have some gigantic commie legacy here and there. The largest ones:

Lukoil-Neftohim, the largest rafinery in the Balkans:



Kremikovci, another commie giant. Enormous metallurgic complex with 7-8000 people employed. The biggest source of pollution in the Sofia region :(



One of the coal power plants of the Marica-Iztok complex:



NPP "Kozloduy"



And we have newer industrial zone growing in the recent years, like this one near Plovdiv (image from early construction days)



Or like that in my hometown, Ruse which is U/C:




Anyway, I think that the Russians have much more impressive images to share of their industrial zones..

Sounds like the Polish rust belt and Katowice is the Polish Pittsburgh.

Welcome to Aviation Valley in southeastern Poland, famous for its aerospace industry and pilot training centers. This region has a heavy concentration of aerospace industry, scientific research centers, as well as educational and training facilities. Aviation Valley is one of the best places in Central Europe for the development and fulfillment of aerospace projects.



The exceptional highlights that Aviation Valley offers:

* 100 Years of aviation history
* 70 years of history in the aircraft industry
* 90% of Polish aerospace industry output
* Cost effective work force and production costs
* Over 16,000 experienced and dedicated employees
* University of Technology with a strong Aerospace Engineering Faculty
* Investor friendly environment
* Centrally located international airport
* Major highway linking southeastern Poland to southwestern Poland and Germany to be completed within the next few years

These are only some of the many benefits which speak clearly on behalf of Aviation Valley.



The Aviation Valley Association was started on April 11, 2003, as a non-profit organization, as a means to furthering the rapid development and growth of the aerospace industry in southeastern Poland. This historic decision was conceived by a group of leading aeronautic producers, suppliers and businessmen. Significant funding for the Association has been provided by Pratt & Whitney, a world leader in the design, manufacture and service of aircraft engines, space propulsion systems and industrial gas turbines.

The objectives of the Aviation Valley Association:

1. The organization and development of a low cost supply chain.
2. The creation of favorable conditions in order to enhance the development of aerospace industry enterprises in this region.
3. The further development of aerospace research, aptitude and skill.
4. The cooperation with universities of technology, which would promote new ideas and scientific research within the aerospace industry.
5. The promotion of the Polish aerospace industry.
6. The protection of enterprise and businesses in the aerospace industry.
7. The influence on the Polish government’s economic policy towards the aerospace industry and its domain.



The Aviation Valley Association currently represents 50 companies within the region, with several others in the process of applying for membership. The number of 100 members is expected to be reached within the next few years. Our most important short and medium term goals are:

o to improve the existing manufacturing base.
o to create a strong and reliable network of subcontractors and a low-cost supply chain.
o to attract foreign investment.
o to develop a relationship with other European centers of the aerospace industry.
o to promote joint cooperation of the industry with universities of technology, and research centers.

The long-term objective of the Aviation Valley Association is to transform southeastern Poland into one of Europe’s leading aerospace regions, which would be able to provide a diverse cross section of products and services for the most demanding clients.
