"Goliath" for the "Star"

Shipbuilding plant in Primorye is preparing to receive specialists and build supply vessels for drilling platforms

"Goliath" for the "Star"

Last weekend, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Rogozin visited the Zvezda plant, located in the town of Bolshoy Kamen, Primorsky Territory. The Deputy Prime Minister got acquainted with the progress of the state defense order and the construction of a large-scale shipbuilding shipyard, where it is planned to build tankers with a displacement of up to 350 thousand tons, ice-class ships and offshore oil platforms.

The future of the superworld

Rogozin's visit to Zvezda began with a visit to the hull-processing unit being built for the superyard. Long sheets of metal will be brought here, which will be cut on machine tools and turned into various structures - beams, micro-panels, flat and volumetric sections. After that, the ship will be assembled on the slipway. Representatives of the plant say that in the future everything should be produced at Zvezda, including the filling of ships.

Now crane equipment is being installed here - some are already installed, two more beams come from Nakhodka by the sea, but they linger: the plant expects to receive them when the ice melts in the sea.

Technological equipment began to arrive in 2011-2012 years and was delivered to the enterprise almost completely. The metal will be converted into sections of vessels: in the first years it is planned to process up to 45 thousand tons of metal, and in time - up to 90 thousand tons. In addition, the slipway will allow processing about 150 tons of metal - it will be possible to bring elements from which the ships will be collected.

According to the director of "Zvezda" Yuri Filchenok, the first work in the block will begin in September. “In the fourth quarter of this year, we are obliged to start testing the technology. That is, the first iron will appear there in September, and we will already start cutting metal. For about a whole quarter, this is the end of 2015, we will be working out technologies together with specialists from supplying plants. These are people from the west of Russia, from Germany and South Korea, ”he said.

The shipyard will make metal sections from which it will be possible to assemble almost any vessel. At first, most likely, the ships at the plant will be partially assembled and transported to the dry dock for assembly. Later, Zvezda is planning to design a semi-submersible platform that will allow ships assembled in Bolshoy Kamen to be launched here.

In addition, a Goliath gantry crane with a lifting capacity of 1,2 thousand tons will be built here. It will make it possible to assemble volumetric sections for ships weighing up to 145 thousand tons. The factory is proud to say that "Goliath" will be visible even from Vladivostok (the distance between the two cities in a straight line, across the Ussuri Bay, exceeds 35 kilometers).

According to the director of "Zvezda", the production line of vessels that will be built by the superyard has been prepared and approved. “We are talking about the construction of ice-class vessels to support exploration drilling on the Russian Arctic shelf,” said Yuri Filchenok. “These are vessels that provide exploration drilling platforms with everything you need - drilling fluids, drill pipes, crews who work there. Until now, such ships were built in Finland, Norway and other countries of the world. We plan that Rosneft will order the first group of four vessels this year. The production program, which has already been approved, includes drilling platforms. The first vessel will most likely be supply vessels, because there is the most serious need for them. One drilling platform is served by 14 vessels. And today most of these ships have to be chartered abroad. "

The director of the plant believes that the main issue to be settled is personnel. It is planned that residents of Primorye (mainly from Bolshoy Kamen) and other regions of Russia, as well as South Korea and China will work at the superyard. The ratio of local and visiting workers is 60% and 40%.

The workers of the enterprise will not be left homeless. “For now, we are planning to use the existing fund of hostels, and then we will focus on the housing that needs to be built,” Filchenok commented. - This year someone will be renting an apartment, we have a small fund of service housing. After that, first of all, it is planned to build a microdistrict for 350 apartments. In general, we have prepared sites for the construction of about 2,5 thousand apartments. According to the governor Vladimir Miklushevsky, the regional budget includes the necessary funds for schools and kindergartens. "

In addition to service housing, it is planned to build a mortgage. According to the plant director, the average salary of a qualified enterprise specialist allows you to participate in such programs.

Another important aspect of the shipyard's work is the training of specialists. Students and future specialists with higher technical and economic education will be trained on the basis of the Far Eastern Federal University, which has sufficient federal funding for this, and some other specialized universities. Quite a lot of young people study in the framework of targeted programs from the Far Eastern Shipyard "Zvezda" and some other enterprises that are part of the structure of the Far Eastern Center for Shipbuilding and Ship Repair.

Strategic project on the great water

After Dmitry Rogozin's visit to the block of hull-processing industries, the delegation that arrived at the plant retired for a meeting. The Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation noted that now one of the most important tasks is the formation of a single state order for all shipbuilding. “The point is to form a single state order for all shipbuilding - not only of defense importance, but also civil, passenger, to bring together all our plans to create offshore equipment, marine equipment, icebreaker fleet, calculate everything by years and in any case do not allow the transfer of these orders outside the country. It is better to slow down the development of offshore fields, but do everything at home, - Rogozin said. "The money should stay in your own country."

The Deputy Prime Minister recalled that in March the deadline allotted to Rosneft, Gazprombank and USC for the approval of the business plan, financial model and network schedule for the construction of the first stage of the Far East shipbuilding and ship repair center, including the creation of an engineering center, determination of volumes and sources financing. In addition, he noted, in March, the Ministry of Economic Development should summarize all plans for a consolidated order for offshore equipment and submit corresponding forecasts to the government.

“This project is truly strategic not only for the Far East, it is strategic for our entire country. We do not have such factories yet. Here we have open water, the great Pacific Ocean, so, of course, we will discuss this issue in the government, and not in the distant future, but tomorrow, roughly speaking, to find funds to fully load the enterprise with work by the end of this year, to prepare him to ensure that from January 2016, XNUMX, he began concrete plans to create the necessary marine technology, "- said Dmitry Rogozin. Recall, on his behalf, the issue of including the Big Stone in the list of priority development areas is being considered.

Further, behind closed doors, the progress of construction of the Zvezda shipbuilding complex, the financial support of the project and the progress of the state defense order were discussed. Yuri Filchenok slightly lifted the veil of secrecy over the progress of the state defense order. “As far as military ship repairs are concerned, the Zvezda shipyard is loaded for the next 15 years, and we have only one problem - we are given exactly as much work as we are able to do,” the director of the enterprise commented. “If we could do more, we would do more work. One of the important tasks is to ensure, within the next 10 years, a comprehensive modernization of the production of the ship repair complex, which will make it possible to more efficiently carry out the repair of nuclear submarines of the Pacific Fleet. We are fulfilling the tasks that the Pacific Fleet sets for us ”.


Last year, the Zvezda plant celebrated its 60th anniversary. The company began its activity with the repair of small vessels and, with the growth of production volume, annually introduced new hulls. In the late 1950s, the plant began repairing diesel-electric submarines and surface ships of the Pacific Fleet. Since that time, Zvezda's main task has been to maintain the combat readiness of the Pacific fleet.

Over the 60 years, more than 600 warships and naval auxiliary ships were repaired, 13 diesel and more than 50 nuclear submarines (NPS) were serviced, more than 40 NPS were utilized.

In October 2013, a criminal case was opened in the Pacific Fleet over the fact that the cost of repairing warships was overstated. Officials of the Zvezda plant became his defendants. According to the investigation, the damage from theft at the plant exceeded one billion rubles, seven criminal cases were initiated. In Primorye and Moscow, the property of the defendants was arrested, their names were not disclosed.

In total, in recent years, more than 30 violations of legislation on state defense orders have been identified at the enterprise.
