MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Vitaly Prokopyev, correspondent of the State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company Sakha, and operator Viktor Rukavishnikov visited the metalworking workshop of IK-1. Here they saw how, on a special device for cutting materials, convicts carry out a full cycle of work on processing, cutting and welding metal, as well as painting containers for collecting waste with an anti-corrosion, weather-resistant paint coating. They work quickly and efficiently, which guarantees a long service life of products.
The production process is led by the chief engineer of correctional colony No. 1 Serik Basygariyev. During a dialogue with a correspondent, he said that the institution has considerable experience in working with third-party organizations: convicts produce metal products, clothing, furniture and souvenirs.
The convicts in their comments said that they received the specialty of a welder, having studied at vocational school No. 317 of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia. While working, they help families and pay off debts on claims, and are confident that after being released from prison they will be able to find work, as they have practical skills.
In addition to the points for separate collection of municipal solid waste already installed in the territory of Yakutsk, garbage containers are successfully manufactured at the plant. Members of the film crew of the State TV and Radio Broadcasting Company “Sakha” were able to attend the loading of ready-made containers for the Yakutsk Municipal Service, whose deputy head Stanislav Novikov noted the quality of the finished products at their relatively low cost. In addition, he said that representatives of the Service and the regional operator for the treatment of municipal solid waste in the central zone of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) visited correctional colony No. 1, where they got acquainted with the technology for manufacturing containers directly at the site.
It should be noted that the production of metal containers is also established in correctional colonies No. 3 and No. 6 of the Federal Penitentiary Service, where contracts with municipal customers and medical organizations are successfully executed, which contributes to the creation of additional jobs for convicts.
