"Goliath" for the "Star"

Shipbuilding plant in Primorye is preparing to receive specialists and build supply vessels for drilling platforms

"Goliath" for the "Star"

Last weekend, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin visited the Zvezda plant, located in the city of Bolshoy Kamen Primorsky Krai. The Vice Prime Minister got acquainted with the implementation of the state defense order and the construction of a large shipbuilding shipyard, where it is planned to build tankers with a displacement of up to 350 thousand tons, ice-class vessels and oil offshore platforms.

The future of the superworld

Rogozin's visit to the "Star" began with a visit to the block of hull-processing industries being built for the super-superstructure. Long metal sheets will be brought here, which will be cut on machine tools and turned into various structures - beams, micro-panels, flat and three-dimensional sections. After that, the ship will be assembled on the slipway. Representatives of the plant say that in the future on "Star" everything must be produced, including the filling of vessels.

Now crane equipment is being installed here - some are already installed, two more beams come from Nakhodka by the sea, but they linger: the plant expects to receive them when the ice melts in the sea.

Technological equipment began to arrive in 2011-2012 years and was delivered to the enterprise almost completely. The metal will be converted into sections of vessels: in the first years it is planned to process up to 45 thousand tons of metal, and in time - up to 90 thousand tons. In addition, the slipway will allow processing about 150 tons of metal - it will be possible to bring elements from which the ships will be collected.

As the director of the "Star" Yuri Filchenok, the first work in the block will begin in September. "In the fourth quarter of this year, we are obliged to begin working out the technology. That is, the first iron will appear there in September, and we will start cutting the metal. For about a whole quarter, this is the end of 2015, we will work out the technology together with the specialists of the supplier plants. They are people from the west of Russia, from Germany and South Korea, "he said.

At the shipyard from metal will be made sections, from which it will be possible to collect almost any vessel. At first, most likely, ships at the plant will be partially assembled and transported to a dry dock for assembly. Later on, "Zvezda" plan to design a semisubmersible platform, which will allow it to launch the vessels assembled in the Great Stone.

In addition, there will be built a gantry crane "Goliath" with a carrying capacity of 1,2 thousand tons. It will allow to collect voluminous sections for vessels weighing up to 145 thousand tons. The factory is proud to say that the "Goliath" will be seen as much from Vladivostok (the distance between the two cities in a straight line, through the Ussuri Bay, exceeds 35 kilometers).

According to the director of "Zvezda", the production line of vessels that will build a super-ship has been prepared and approved. "We are talking about the construction of ice-class vessels to provide exploration drilling on the Russian shelf of the Arctic," said Yuri Filchenok. "These are ships that provide exploration drilling platforms with everything needed - drilling fluids, drill pipes, crew watches that work there." So far, such vessels have been built in Finland, Norway and other countries of the world. We plan that Rosneft will order the first group of four vessels this year. In the production program, which has already been approved, there are including drilling platforms. The first vessel, most likely, will be supply vessels, because they have the most serious need. One drilling platform is served by 14 ships. And to date, most of these vessels have to charter abroad. "

The director of the plant believes that the main issue to be settled is the personnel one. It is planned that the residents of Primorye (mainly from the Great Stone) and other regions of Russia, as well as South Korea and China will work at the super-surf. The ratio of local and visiting workers is 60% and 40%.

Employees of the enterprise will not be left homeless. “For now we are planning to use the existing fund of hostels, and then we will focus on the housing that needs to be built,” Filchenok commented. - This year, someone will rent an apartment, we have a small fund of official housing. After that, the first plan is to build a neighborhood on 350 apartments. In general, we have prepared sites for the construction of about 2,5 thousand apartments. According to Governor Vladimir Miklushevsky, the necessary funds for schools and kindergartens are included in the regional budget. ”

In addition to service housing, it is planned to build a mortgage. According to the plant director, the average salary of a qualified enterprise specialist allows you to participate in such programs.

Another important aspect of the shipyard's work is the training of specialists. Students and future specialists with higher technical and economic education will be trained on the basis of the Far Eastern Federal University, which has enough federal funding for this, and some other specialized universities. Quite a lot of young people study in the framework of targeted programs from the Zvezda DWZ and some other enterprises that are part of the Far Eastern Shipbuilding and Ship Repair Center.

Strategic project on the great water

After the visit of Dmitry Rogozin to the block of hull-manufacturing enterprises, the delegation, who arrived at the plant, retired to the meeting. The Deputy Prime Minister noted that one of the most important tasks now is the formation of a single state order for all shipbuilding. "It is a question of forming a single state order for all shipbuilding, not only of defense significance, but also civil, passenger, to bring together all our plans for the creation of offshore equipment, naval equipment, icebreaking fleet, calculate all by years and in any case Do not allow these orders to be taken out of the country. It's better to brake the development of offshore fields, but do everything in our own way, "Rogozin said. "Money must remain in your own country."

The Deputy Prime Minister reminded that in March the deadline for Rosneft, Gazprombank and USC expires for approval of the business plan, financial model and network schedule for the construction of the first stage of the Far Eastern Shipbuilding and Shiprepair Center, including the creation of an engineering center, determination of volumes and sources Financing. In addition, he said, in March the Ministry of Economic Development should summarize all plans for a consolidated order for offshore shelf equipment and submit relevant forecasts to the government.

"This project is really strategic not only for the Far East, it is strategic for the whole of our country. We have no such kind of factories yet. Here we have open water, the great Pacific Ocean, so, of course, we will discuss this issue in the government, and not discuss it in the distant future, and tomorrow, roughly speaking, find the means to fully load the enterprise work by the end of this year, Its to ensure that from January 1, 2016, he started concrete plans to create the necessary marine equipment, "Dmitry Rogozin stressed. Recall, on his behalf, the question of including the Big Stone in the list of territories of advanced development is being considered.

Next, behind closed doors, the construction of the Zvezda shipbuilding complex, financial support for the project and the progress of the state defense order were discussed. The veil of secrecy over the progress of the state defense order was slightly raised by Yuri Filchenok. "With regard to the provision of military ship repair, the Zvezda DVZ is loaded for the next 15 years, and we have only one problem - we are given exactly as much work as we are able to do," commented the director of the enterprise. "If we could do more, we would do more work." One of the important tasks is to ensure, during the next 10 years, a comprehensive modernization of the ship repair facility, which will allow more efficient repairs of nuclear submarines of the Pacific Fleet. We are fulfilling the tasks that the Pacific Fleet is setting for us. "


Last year, the Zvezda plant celebrated its 60 anniversary. The enterprise began its activity with the repair of small vessels and, with the growth of production, annually introduced new buildings. At the end of the 1950-ies, the plant began repairing diesel-electric submarines and surface ships of the Pacific Fleet. Since that time, the main task of the "Star" was to maintain the combat readiness of the Pacific fleet.

Over the 60 years, more than 600 warships and naval auxiliary ships were repaired, 13 diesel and more than 50 nuclear submarines (NPS) were serviced, more than 40 NPS were utilized.

In October 2013, a criminal case was opened in connection with the overestimation of the cost of repairing warships in the Pacific Fleet. Its officials were officials of the plant "Star". According to the investigation, the damage from thefts at the plant exceeded one billion rubles, seven criminal cases were opened. The property of the defendants was arrested in Primorye and Moscow, their names were not disclosed.

In total, in recent years, more than 30 violations of legislation on state defense orders have been identified at the enterprise.
