(Boris Kabakov, Director, Shipbuilding and Marine Facilities Department, RF Ministry of Industry and Trade - On construction of Zhatai Shipyard in Yakutia )
- It is a great day for Yakutia and for the entire Lena Basin. The bulk of the Lena fleet was built in the Upper Lena region but there is no shipbuilding there any more, except for Zhigalovo. Kachugskaya and Osetrovskaya shipyards ceased to exist, Kirenskaya REB (former Kirensky ship repair yard) does not build ships any more ... With the launching of the shipyard (Zhatai Shipyard – Ed.), the problem of fleet renovation can be solved.
