MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The company is expected to sign a contract with the Roscosmos state corporation, according to the procurement data.
Within the framework of the contract TsENKI should construct "fueling-and-neutralization" units to fuel space tug used in different modifications of Soyuz-2 space rockets and manned cargo spacecrafts.
Vostochny has been under construction since 2012 and is expected to reduce Russia's dependency on the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan, which is on lease to Russia until 2050. Russia carried out a maiden space launch from the Vostochny cosmodrome on April 28. It involved a Soyuz-2.1a light class space rocket with three research satellites.
