V. Shport: 75 percent of mining vessels have a maximum and above normal operating time

On the eve of the Governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Vyacheslav Shport spoke at a meeting on the development of the fishing industry, which was held in Magadan by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

V.Shport believes that in order to update the fishing fleet in Russia, it is necessary to develop a mechanism for state participation in financing the construction of such vessels at domestic shipyards, for example, in the region’s shipyards, the regional government website reported today.

According to the governor, more than 75% of production vessels have a maximum and over-standard service life. "Most enterprises are unable to independently solve the problem of renewing the mining fleet due to the lack of their own working capital. The cost of building one large-tonnage vessel is on average more than $ 100 million. The current state support measures have not yet given the desired effect," the website says Shport's words.

He stressed that in the current situation it is necessary to develop a mechanism for financing the construction of fishing vessels at domestic shipyards with mandatory state support. "An acceptable financial instrument is leasing, for its effective use it is necessary to create a leasing company with the participation of the state, specializing in the construction of a fishing fleet. Shipbuilding enterprises of the Khabarovsk Territory are able to fulfill such orders," the governor noted.

The Amur and Khabarovsk shipyards operate in the Khabarovsk Territory. They are part of the Far Eastern Shipbuilding and Ship Repair Center (a subsidiary of USC). They can build corvettes, hovercraft, rescue tugs, and fishing vessels. Earlier, Shport stated that the level of utilization of factories now ranges from 10 to 25% of capacity. For the normal operation of the shipbuilding industry in the region, their load by 2020 needs to be increased by 5 times.
