Three more ships will be built at the seaside shipyard "Star" for "Novatek"

VEB.RF will finance the construction of three more tankers for Novatek. The cost of the vessels will be 35 million euros. According to the chairman of the state corporation Igor Shuvalov, this is an important deal that supports domestic shipbuilding and domestic companies.

In December 2018, the supervisory board of VEB.RF approved a construction loan in the interests of Rosneft of an Arctic tanker-shuttle for the transport of liquefied natural gas. The loan amount amounted to 18,5 billion rubles. The vessel will also be built on the Zvezda complex in Primorye.

According to the press service of the Ministry of Eastern Development, earlier, construction of two large-capacity oil tankers on the Zvezda was approved. According to Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, such support for the shipbuilding industry has a positive effect on subcontractors: jobs are created, infrastructure appears, residential neighborhoods are built, the urban environment is improving.

Earlier this year, it became known that Novatek and the Zvezda shipyard agreed to build 14 Arc7 ice-class gas carriers for the new gas liquefaction project Arctic LNG-2.
