In his opening speech Dmitry Rogozin said that the ambitious construction project is in full swing now.
“Creation of a shipyard for construction of Arctic class vessels will let stop pulling of the funds out of the country and will allow for implementation of large scale, I would say great, plans on development of the Arctic shelf accounting for up to 80% of the country’s gas fields,” said Dmitry Rogozin.

The Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex is being built by a Consortium of Rosneftegaz, Rosneft and Gazprombank on the basis of the Far Eastern Shipbuilding and Ship Repair Center. Pilot work load for the Complex is provided by Rosneft, which made an exclusive agreement with FESRC to place all orders for new marine equipment and vessels with its facilities, as well as contracts for the design, construction and delivery of two multipurpose ice-class supply vessels. The new 100 meter-long ships will be able to operate in the most severe conditions for Rosneft offshore projects in the northern seas. In addition, two more supply vessels will also be built.
