More than "Afromaxes"

VEB.RF can finance eight projects of the shipbuilding complex in Primorye

During his visit to Primorye, Igor Shuvalov, Chairman of the State Development Corporation of VEB.RF, visited the Zvezda shipyard in Bolshoy Kamen, where serial production of Aframax tankers began. There he said that the corporation will consider eight more projects aimed at the development of the shipbuilding complex.

More than "Afromaxes"
During the Eastern Economic Forum, contracts for the construction of two vessels of the Afromax type, new to Russia, were signed by VEB Group, PJSC NK Rosneft, OOO ZSK Zvezda, and Sovkomflot Group. At the end of October 2018, the supervisory board of VEB decided to approve the deal, and in November Rosneft announced the start of serial production - cutting of metal for the second vessel began on Zvezda.

“Supporting this industry has a progressive impact on the development of many related industries, which is a key task of the VEB group as a development institution. Currently, eight projects are being considered by VEB.RF aimed at developing the shipbuilding complex in Primorsky Krai, the potential volume of participation of the VEB group exceeds 200 billion rubles. The launch of projects will increase tax revenues, will create new jobs, improve the quality of life, ”said Shuvalov.

What specific projects were discussed, Igor Shuvalov did not specify, but it is known that the Primorye authorities are betting on the development of shipbuilding. At WEF, in September 2018, agreements were signed on the construction of new shipyards. One of them is with the St. Petersburg company Pella, which intends to engage in the construction of fishing, research and port supply vessels. After reaching the design capacity, the shipyards will sail to seven ships a year. Now they are looking for a suitable site in Primorye. The second is with the participation of the Republic of Korea and Japan. The project is implemented on the basis of the Slavic Shipyard in Khasansky District. Korean partners are ready to share technologies, Japanese will be the main investor. Will produce, including small and medium tonnage fishing vessels.

But the shipbuilding complex "Zvezda" remains the favorite of the seaside shipbuilding. Now, in addition to Afromaks, here they are building the first of a series of multifunctional ice-class supply vessels. It is planned to launch it in the 2019 year. Now on the stocks is the formation of the body. The length of the vessel, designed for 49 man crew, will be 106 meters, width - 22, height - 11 meters. Supply vessels are designed for a wide geography of navigation, they can deliver cargo to offshore drilling platforms, pass through ice, tow ships and offshore facilities, and participate in rescue operations. Total "Star" will build four such ships.



Currently in the portfolio of SSC orders over 30 contracts, including a small-capacity icebreaker, Arctic shuttle tankers, a passenger ship and other projects.

The next step, which will allow Zvezda to expand the line and begin construction of drilling platforms, supertankers, gas carriers, will be the commissioning of a dry dock that is comparable in size to the plant itself. Its length is 485 meters, width - 114, height - 14,5 meters. According to the original plans, it was planned to complete its construction in 2022, but in September, when the first concrete was poured into the foundation, the head of Rosneft, Igor Sechin, spoke about a three-year reduction in terms.

Scientific and technical support for the construction of the dry dock is provided by scientists from FEFU, they will explore the soil foundation, carry out tests of steel reinforcement, find the appropriate composition of concrete.

In addition to visiting the plant, the team of the VEB group also visited the construction site for residential buildings for future employees of Zvezda in the Big Stone. Two houses on 68 apartments have already been commissioned and settled there, an entire block is under construction in the Sixth microdistrict. Contest procedures were held and a contractor for the construction of residential buildings was selected in two other microdistricts. In total, up to 2023 of the year it is planned to build about five thousand apartments, fully meeting the workers' housing needs. The possibility of expanding the participation of the Development Fund for the Far East (VEB Group) in housing projects aimed at providing apartments for IC Zvezda is being considered. FRDV together with DOM.RF implement this project on the instructions of the President of Russia.

1780 people are currently working at the shipyards, and 2024 will work for 7500. In order to provide the enterprise with personnel, a “Center for vocational training of the FCS“ Zvezda ”is being created in the Big Stone. It is planned that there will be trained up to 300-400 people per year. Also, on the basis of the Bolshekamensk Far Eastern Shipbuilding College, the shipyard employees opened training courses in the most popular specialties.
