CONSTRUCTION OF ZVEZDA SHIPBUILDING COMPLEX
The Far Eastern Yard Zvezda in Bolshoi Kamen Bay hosts an ongoing pilot project, the construction of one of the most advanced shipyards in Russia.
The project envisages the development of a shipyard, the Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex, specialized in construction of large ships, and the deployment of its production facilities.
The project is a constructed-from-scratch type with renovation of some facilities located within the development area. It will include the construction of all the production facilities and infrastructure and procurement of the production technology for the best functioning of the new enterprise. The shipyard facilities will feature the latest production equipment, robotic work cells, machine-driven and automated lines, standard jigs and fixtures, and IT systems to support the high-tech production and the use of machines and automation to ensure a high quality and commercially successful product.
On completion of the construction project, the Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex will be able to construct tankers with a displacement of up to 350 thousand tons, LNG carriers up to 250,000 cubic meters, ice class vessels, specialized vessels with a launch weight up to 29,000 tons, offshore platform units, and other types of ships.
