Russian President Vladimir Putin held a meeting on the development of civil shipbuilding

Today at a meeting on the development of civil shipbuilding in Primorsky Krai, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the development of shipbuilding is of particular importance, as it gives impetus to many related industries.

"The production of modern, competitive ships is of particular importance for the country," the head of state said. "This is not only an indicator of the technological, production, and personnel potential of the shipbuilding industry, but also a serious incentive for the growth of related industries and suppliers - mechanical engineering, metallurgy and the sector of applied scientific research," he is convinced.

Putin recalled that the shipbuilding cluster in the Far East should become a large industrial center that will manufacture and service vessels of different classes, primarily for the domestic market of the Russian Federation.

"There is such a request from domestic buyers, which means that new shipbuilding capacities will be in demand," the president said.

Plans for the development of the Russian shipbuilding industry should be synchronized with the investment programs of large customers. “Today, large-scale projects are being launched in the Russian fuel and energy complex, in transport,” Putin recalled. “And our plans to commission new shipbuilding facilities should be synchronized with the investment programs of large Russian customers.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin believes that, if necessary, Russian shipbuilders can enter into alliances with world manufacturers. "Where it is necessary, it is necessary to adopt foreign experience," Putin said. "Enter into technological alliances with the world's leading manufacturers."

(DSME, a division of the Daewoo concern). In 2012, the Korean side withdrew from the project, and USC at the end of 2013 ceded a package of 75% minus two shares of DTSSS to the consortium "Modern Shipbuilding Technologies", created by Gazprombank and Rosneft. In 2014, the construction cost of the shipyard was estimated at 111,7 billion rubles, and the start-up phase - 60 billion rubles. The new site is expected to start operating in 2018 and will begin production of marine technology and equipment for exploration, production and transportation of hydrocarbons - in particular, tankers with a displacement of up to 350 thousand tons, gas carriers with a capacity of up to 250 thousand cubic meters. m, ice-class vessels, special vessels with a launch weight of up to 29 thousand tons, elements of offshore platforms for the development of Arctic shelf oil and gas fields. After commissioning, the shipyard is expected to employ 6 people.

According to the annual report, the revenue based on the results of 2013 amounted to 6 billion 179 million rubles. The number of employees at the end of 2013 is 4 thousand 183 people.
