Everyone will be able to get acquainted with the products of portfolio companies at the RUSNANO stand in the exhibition of Caspian Technology Forum. Russia’s largest producer of solar panels Hevel will show visitors the development of their own research center—photovoltaic cells with efficiency of solar flux conversion of more than 20%. At low cost of production, they combine the advantages of thin-film and silicon technology, are not subject to light-induced degradation and can be operated for more than 20 years.

Perm manufacturer of oil-production equipment Novomet will introduce energy-efficient electric-centrifugal submersible pumps. Nanoscale coating of tungsten carbide, titanium and aluminum oxide, chromium and molybdenum is used in the manufacture of slide bearings and pump stages—it gives them high corrosion and hydroabrasion resistance, as well as reduces energy consumption by 20-30%.

Novosibirsk project of RUSNANO—OCSiAl will demonstrate not only their products—single-walled carbon nanotubes, but the actual methods for their use: long-lasting lithium-ion batteries, durable carbon and aluminum composites, electrically conductive rubber, concrete, cement and some other materials modified with nanotubes. In spite of high quality, the cost of carbon nanotubes by OCSiAl is 50 times lower than the cost of their equivalents, which opens up the possibility of their mass application in industry.
