COMSOL, the leading provider of multiphysics simulation and analysis software, announced the opening of a new office in Moscow, Russia. The new office provides sales and support for the growing community of COMSOL Multiphysics® users in Russia. Services include local sales, technical support, training sessions, and on-site workshops, seminars and customer visits.

"Russia is known for its strong school of physics and mathematics,” says Evgeny Kuznetsov, managing director of COMSOL LLC. “This has helped the country to obtain leading positions in knowledge-intensive industries, including rocket engine design and nuclear power stations. Oil and gas is another example of a sophisticated industry in Russia where multiphysics modeling can significantly improve efficiency and help develop new technologies—from exploration to distribution and beyond.”

Egor Vtorushin, researcher at the Novosibirsk Technology Center of Baker Hughes, expresses his excitement about the new office: "We use COMSOL Multiphysics software and the AC/DC Module for the numerical simulation of electromagnetic logging. We welcome the opening of the COMSOL office in Russia and look forward to interacting more closely with their technical support and sales teams.”

The opening of the Russian office comes at an auspicious time for COMSOL, as the Application Builder and COMSOL Server™ were recently released with COMSOL Multiphysics version 5.0. “We are investing in our rapidly growing user base,” says Farhad Saeidi, president of COMSOL AB. “The Application Builder will make simulation applications available to a wider audience, while the high-tech community in Moscow will be key for establishing a dedicated COMSOL user base in Russia. Our customers in Russia and their entire organizations will be able to benefit from both the local office and the software’s new tools right away.”

Upcoming events in Russia include seminars in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk, and Kazakhstan.

“Moscow is the heart of Russia,” concludes Kuznetsov. “The new COMSOL office will bring the company’s innovative, vibrant, and cutting-edge corporate culture closer to local users. This will improve the quality of services, making COMSOL Multiphysics even more valuable for engineers, researchers, and developers."
