Exploring an Abandoned Capacitor Factory in Russia. The abandoned capacitor factory located at Dno town, Russia. During the 1980s, due to the specifics and demand, the plant switched to the production of electrical products.
The photos were taken by Comdig Urban Exploration Group. They are photographers and explorers based in Russia. The Comdig has been documenting urban decay, industrial abandonments, and rural decomposition since 2010.
The capacitor factory “Keramite” produced products for the enterprises of the Soviet military-industrial complex — capacitors and insulators for the electronics industry. During the 1980s, due to the specifics and demand, the plant switched to the production of electrical products, but it was still part of the structure of the Soviet military-industrial complex. The main product range was ceramic fuse cases, ceramic tubes, small-sized ceramic products, and various types of insulators and capacitors for the electronics industry.
On the area of 5.2 hectares, which the plant occupies, there are the main building of the ceramic center No. 1 and center No. 2, a mechanical repair section, an energy and plumbing section, a transport workshop, and other buildings.
At this stage of time, the plant is completely abandoned but guarded by a watchman with a bunch of dogs, dogs also live in a large workshop. The watchman sits at the checkpoint. The fence around the factory is wooden, with holes in several places. As of now, it is mostly empty, some of the buildings have machine tools, the offices have furniture and other remnants of the interior and documentation.
The abandoned capacitor factory located at Dno town, Russia. Dno is a town and the administrative center of Dnovsky District in Pskov Oblast, Russia, located at the intersection of the Pskov–Bologoye and St. Petersburg–Vitebsk railways, 113 kilometers (70 mi) east of Pskov, the administrative center of the oblast.
