AHR held the first major auctions for the sale of the property of the Russian Railways in 2013

On the 27th of May the Auction House of the Russian Federation (AHR) conducted on its electronic trading platform Lot-online an auction by the order of the “TransWoodService” Company – a subsidiary structure of the “Russian Railways”

The movable and real property of the Aursky Treating Plant was put up for auction. The price of the sale was 44.9 million rubles.

Address of the object: the town of Aur of the Smidovichsky District of the Jewish Autonomous Oblast, Zavodskaya ul., 1 (railway line Izvestkovaya-Volochaevka).

 The winner of the auction will obtain into ownership a real estate property with the total area of about 14.5 thousand sq.m., and also the movable property of the enterprise.  Apart from that according to the contract with the Russian Railways the right of sublease of the land plot on which the buildings are located also passed to the winner.

At the moment the enterprise is not functioning, however the real estate property – the buildings, warehouses, workshops, shop floors, garages, transportation routes and engineering objects – is all in working condition. The ideal use for the existing capacities would be for a woodworking plant.

“We have agreed with the Russian Railways that their non-core assets would be sold both on the classical and electronic trading platforms of the Auction House of the Russian Federation. In this case an auction on the Lot-online was an optimal way of realizing this asset. We are confident that it is a sale on the Internet that is particularly effective when we are dealing with property in remote regions. The busy clientele of the electronic trading platform of AHR and the considerable volume of transactions that are daily made on this platform guarantee in this case an effective sale of the assets. By now we have sold on the Lot-online property to the amount of 29 billion rubles” (general director of the Auction House of the Russian Federation, Andrey Stepanenko).

At the moment we are working through the possibility of selling objects of the Oktyabrskaya Railway in the Priozersky and Vyborgsky Distticts of the Leningrad Oblast.
