Seven vessels will be constructed by the Onega Shipbuilding and Ship repair yard. Keel laying of the first two vessels took place in June and December. At the moment, hull work is underway.

    Initiation of the MSC certification process, digitalization of operational processes, and creation of 113 new vacancies — are among important annual projects that characterize Company’s growth and development.
