    Russian PM holds meeting on import substitution and Far East development issues (photo)

    On December 18, RF Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev held a joint meeting of Government Commissions on Import Substitution and on the Socioeconomic Development of the Far East and the Baikal region, the Government’s press center says.

    According to Dmitry Medvedev, their work has been deliberately combined so that import substitution could be discussed by focusing on the Far Eastern shipbuilding industry.

    “We’ll have to develop numerous shelf deposits in the Arctic and the Far East. Therefore oil and gas companies need a lot of modern vessels and other marine technology. Shipbuilders are seeking a stable, guaranteed market for their products in order to feel more confident as they face tough competition from our nearest neighbours. In this case, the sector will have every chance to saturate a considerable segment of the domestic civilian shipbuilding market and to effectively assert itself on the global market”, Dmitry Medvedev said.

    Before holding the meeting, the Prime Minister visited the Far Eastern Shipyard ‘Zvezda’.

    The project on creation of Shipbuilding Complex Zvezda at Bolshoi Kamen bay is focused on construction of large capacity vessels. The project is a constructed-from-scratch type with renovation of some facilities located within the development area. It will include the construction of all the production facilities and infrastructure and procurement of the production technology for the best functioning of the new enterprise. The shipyard facilities will feature the latest production equipment, robotic work cells, machine-driven and automated lines, standard jigs and fixtures, and IT systems to support the high-tech production and the use of machines and automation to ensure  a high quality and commercially successful product. 

    When completed, the Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex will be able to build tankers with a displacement of up to 350,000 t, LNG carriers of up to 250,000 cubic meters, ice class vessels, specialized vessels with a launch weight of up to 29,000 t, offshore platform units, and other types of ships.  

    The new shipbuilding complex should be built by 2018 in three phases. Financing of the first phase is valued at RUB 77 bln, the second phase (2018-22) – RUB 42 bln, the third phase (2022-24) – RUB 26.5 bln. The project’s total value - RUB 145.5 bln including RUB 60 bln to be allocated by Rosneftegaz, RUB 3 bln to be provided for subsidizing of interest rates, with the rest to be covered by a consortium of investors. Zvezda will be able to build large capacity vessels upon completion of the third phase.

    Shipbuilding comlex Zvezda is being created in Bolshoi Kamen within the framework of the Far Eastern Shipbuilding and Ship Repair Center (United Shipbuilding Corporation). When completed, the Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex will be able to build tankers with a displacement of up to 350,000 t, LNG carriers of up to 250,000 cubic meters, ice class vessels, specialized vessels with a launch weight of up to 29,000 t, offshore platform units, and other types of ships.
