Geocache Description:

[LV] Mikro slēpnis atrodas visai interesantā vietā starp Sarkandaugavu un Rīgas elektromašīnbūves rūpnīcu. Piekļuvei var izmantot makšķernieku taku no D puses vai laivu. Augšā jākāpj nekur nav, bet pārāk viegli arī nebūs (sevišķi slapjā laikā).


Pēc Otrā pasaules kara beigām Rīgā bijušā Provodnik rūpnīcas korpusos tika nolemts izveidot pasažieru elektrovilcienu elektroiekārtu ražotni. Tā dibināta 1946. gadā kā Rīgas elektromašīnbūves rūpnīca (RER).

Līdz 1990. gadiem RER galvenā produkcija bija: elektroiekārtas piepilsētas vilcieniem, vagonu apgaismošanai, elektroiekrāvējiem un tramvajiem, kā arī celtņu elektrodzinēji, spararata ģeneratori, zemsprieguma ierīces, sadzīves ierīces (tai skaitā veļas mašīnas Rīga, centrifūgas Centa), metālkeramikas izstrādājumi.

Līdz ar Latvijas neatkarības atgūšanu strauji samazinājās pieprasījums pēc RER produkcijas. Daļa ražošanas tika slēgta, daudzi darbinieki atlaisti. 1993. gadā rūpnīca reorganizēta kā valsts akciju sabiedrība, bet 1999. gadā - privatizēta. (Wikipedia)

[EN] Micro cache is hidden in an interesting place between Sarkandaugava river and Riga electromechanical factory. You can access it using a path from South or by boat. You won't need to climb up anywhere but it's still not too easy, especially in wet weather.


Riga Electromechanical Factory (RER in Latvian) was created in place of the old Provodnik factory after ending of WWII.

Up to 1990s it was producing electric components for trains, electric forklifts, electric motors for cranes, generators, low voltage devices, household appliances (including washing machines "Riga" and tumble dryers "Centa"), and metal ceramic goods.

With restoration of Latvia's independence, the demand for RER products plummeted. Parts of manufacturing were closed down and many people laid off. In 1993 the factory was reorganized as public company and in 1999 it was privatized.
