    NIBULON shipyard increased volumes of meta lprocessing in 2018

    NIBULON shipbuilding and repair yard says it has increased the volumes of metal processing. In 2018, it processed 6.4 thousand tons of shipbuilding metal. This is the largest volume of metal processed since the beginning of its operation. The company proudly reports: the shipyard has processed more than 22,000 tons of products from Ukrainian metallurgical companies in five years.

    Such an active implementation of the company's shipbuilding program is a positive signal for Ukrainian metallurgists. NIBULON’s fleet is built of Ukrainian metal to fly the Ukrainian flag on the Ukrainian waterways. In the near future, it will consist of 100 vessels.  By the way, last year NIBULON started transporting Ukrainian metal products by rivers, thereby increasing the list of its cargoes.

    It would be impossible without the large-scale reconstruction of NIBULON shipbuilding and repair yard. It enabled the shipyard not only to significantly increase the volume of metal processing, but also to complete the cycle of its processing almost on its own (involving third-party organizations to perform some specific operations). It is a unique shipyard with such production capacities in Ukraine. It is about inauguration of a metal processing workshop with the state-of-the-art equipment from the world’s leading manufacturers, an assembly and fabrication workshop  capable of producing about 4,000 tons of metalware per year, and the reconstructed slipway to 140 m (it allows the shipbuilders to construct and maintain 140-m vessels). In November 2018, NIBULON shipbuilding and repair yard received a new high-capacity cane from Liebherr-MCCTEC Rostock GmbH (Germany). The portal slewing LPS180 crane with a lifting capacity up to 42 tons will integrate the new assembly and fabrication workshop and the building berth. And it will bring it to a new level.  

    The operation of NIBULON shipbuilding and repair yard, one of the few shipyards constructing complete modern vessels, grows each year. Ukraine’s modern fleet is constructed here. The shipyard launches a new vessel almost every month.  

    Last year, it launched 8 vessels. Each of those vessels was the company’s unique record. On March 3, 2018, NIBULON launched the first 100-m vessel of the B5000 project from the reconstructed slipway of NIBULON shipbuilding and repair yard. This launching inaugurated a new stage in the history of NIBULON shipbuilding and repair yard. Another stage of the shipyard renovation was finished, namely the reconstruction of the slipway that envisaged the construction of two additional launching ways. This enables the shipyard to construct complete vessels of 100 m long and perform their maintenance.

    In May 2018, the shipyard launched a unique multipurpose seagoing vessel of the T3500 project. It is one of the most modern vessels built at NIBULON shipbuilding and repair yard. T3500 project vessels are the first vessels of this class that have been launched in Ukraine in 13 years! In September 2018, on the occasion of the 229th anniversary of Mykolaiv, NIBULON presented Mykolaiv citizens with an incredible water show of the T3500 project tug. The show received a large number of positive comments and applause.

    NIBULON’s fleet numbers 71 vessels, and we will not stop at what has been achieved. This year we will construct eight more vessels. Our goal is to construct the fleet in order to transport 4 million tons of grain per year by rivers. In the coming days, self-propelled dredger pontoons will be put into operation. The shipyard is constructing the first 140-m vessel – a self-propelled P-140 project vessel with two cranes and a cargo capacity of 10,000 tons and productivity of 18,000 tons per day. Four POSS-115 project tugs will have been put into operation by the beginning of navigation. Thus, NIBULON’s fleet grows according to the company’s production program. It will consist of 80 vessels at the end of 2019.
