A shipyard in Primorye will give 10 thousands of jobs

On Saturday, August 30, Dmitry Rogozin and Acting Head of Primorye Vladimir Miklushevsky visited the Zvezda plant, where the largest shipyard in the Far Eastern Federal District is being created. The total investment in this project will be about 112 billion rubles.

The construction of a single shipbuilding complex is expected in the Bolshoy Kamen and Five Hunters bays. Two platforms for medium-tonnage and large-tonnage shipbuilding will be built in the Big Stone. In the Bay of Five Hunters in the third phase of construction will build an offshore shipbuilding site.

- The Far East is an unlimited access to the big ocean. Of course, we will develop such enterprises as the Zvezda plant and other enterprises in the Far East and Primorye, with an eye to the fact that in today's difficult conditions, Russia should not restrain itself in matters relating to the country's military and national security, ”said to journalists Dmitry Rogozin.

The first phase of construction is completed in 2016. The second and third phases are scheduled for 2015-2018 years. Production start-up is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2016.

- The combination of private public partnership, civil shipbuilding and military shipbuilding is the two legs on which the plant can stand steadily, fulfilling civil and military-defense orders. The main problem is people. Machine tools can be bought, started, but the people needed in shipbuilding in the Far East are not enough. If we talk about plans for the development of the enterprise until 2025, we will need an additional 10 thousand more workers. In order for them to appear, they need to be educated from local personnel, invited from other regions, says Dmitry Rogozin.

In addition to enhancing the economic potential and development of the transport, engineering and social structure of the cluster, one of the main tasks will be to attract highly qualified personnel to the shipbuilding industry. The average salary of shipyard workers is 43 thousand rubles.

According to the acting governor of Primorye, Vladimir Miklushevsky, for Primorye the emergence of a shipbuilding cluster is a very important project.

- As such, there has never been any shipbuilding in the region. But steps have already begun to appear on the way to this - the first tanker was launched in Nakhodka, patrol ships and small tankers began to be made at the Eastern shipyard in Vladivostok. This project should consolidate the trend of shipbuilding. This will ensure the emergence of new jobs with high wages and taxes for Primorye, which will allow the development of the social sphere and infrastructure in the region, - said the acting head of the region.
