Rosneftegaz to invest RUB 60 bln into modernization of Zvezda

Rosneftegaz (primary shareholder of Rosneft, 100% federally owned) plans allocation of RUB 60 bln for the modernisation of the Zvezda Far Eastern shipbuilding complex (Primorsky Territory), Vladimir Putin said at the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok.

“Rosneftegaz has sufficient resources; the critical task is to ensure their efficient use. Rosneftegaz resources are an effective mechanism. I proceed from the fact that the funding of the entire modernisation programme at the plant, which amounts to 146 billion rubles, is a joint commitment of Rosneft and Gazprombank. This is a preferential resource that allows for an in-depth restructuring of the plant and the creation on its basis of a modern civilian shipbuilding cluster, the production of marine technology and equipment for the exploration, production and transportation of hydrocarbons. I would like to acknowledge all our foreign partners who made the decision to take part in this project”, Vladimir Putin said. 

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.
