Zvezda shipyard in Primorsky Krai intends to complete the construction of the largest dry dock in Russia in 2020, three years ahead of schedule. This was reported by the press service of the Far Eastern Center for Shipbuilding and Repair. Recently, a batch of lifting equipment - gantry cranes - was delivered to the facility.

The constructed dry dock is a unique hydraulic engineering structure that will allow the construction of ships with virtually no restrictions on the tonnage and launch weight of the hull. In September, a Goliath gantry crane with a lifting capacity of 1,2 thousand tons was installed on its site, which together with gantry cranes makes up a complete set of crane equipment for the dock.

Shipyard project includes construction 97 objects. Moreover, of the 16 objects of the first stage, a part has already been commissioned. 14 objects of the second stage will also appear, the implementation of which is proceeding at a faster pace. 

Zvezda Shipyard will specialize in the construction of Arctic vessels. First of all she will build five gas carriers for the Arctic LNG-2 project of NOVOTEK, where South Korean Samsung Heavy Industrial will act as its technological partner. Recently visited the site of the future plant Indian business delegation and discussed with the Russian side the possibility of placing orders for shipbuilding.
