Putin expressed dissatisfaction with the fact that the package of orders for the shipbuilding complex “Zvezda” was not formed - Manturov

President Vladimir Putin instructed in the near future to determine the sources of financing for the construction of the Zvezda shipyard, said Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov following a meeting with the President on the development of civil shipbuilding.

A consortium of investors headed by Rosneft will have to decide on this issue, and “the state should provide maximum support in the implementation of this project,” added Manturov.

The minister added that funding of this project from the budget is possible. According to him, budget financing of "Zvezda" will begin only in 2016, its volume will be about 12 billion rubles. “This, in fact, should be a replacement for those short loans that were provided by Gazprombank to maintain the actual dynamics of construction,” added Manturov.

The first stage of shipyard construction is planned to be completed in 2016, the minister said. When asked whether tankers and supertankers will be built on it, Manturov said that this is possible only after the construction of a dry dock, which is not included in the first stage.

According to Manturov, Putin expressed dissatisfaction with the fact that a package of orders for this shipbuilding complex has not been formed until 2018 for civil projects. “Our companies, which are interested in ordering ships of this class, should complete this work, which has been going on for over a year, as soon as possible,” Interfax quotes him.

The topic of providing the enterprise with qualified personnel was also discussed. The minister noted that in order to resolve this issue, a special neighborhood would be built around the enterprise, in which employees from other regions would live.
