Representatives of the Amur Shipbuilding Plant confirmed the information that the company is behind the ferry schedules for the Vanino-Kholmsk line. The delivery dates of the first ferry were transferred to 2020 year, and the second - to 2021 year.

In response to a request from EastRussia, the press service of the Komsomol plant reported that the deadlines had to be shifted due to problems with procurement, as well as subsequent contracting and issuing materials for design from foreign suppliers of main shipboard equipment.

“Economic sanctions applied to the United Shipbuilding Corporation in general and to the Amur Shipbuilding Plant in particular, significantly hamper the progress of work. The refusal of foreign suppliers, among which, for example, Wärtsilä, to work directly with the PES forced the shipbuilders to resort to the help of intermediaries, which significantly delayed the process of picking the construction and caused a significant loss of contract time, ”the response says.

Now the plant has concluded supply contracts for all large ship equipment. Some deliveries are already underway, for example, ready to be installed on a ship shaft line. As noted in the PEA, the supply of some components for its installation is a matter of several days, until the end of May, the equipment for installation will fully arrive at the plant.

In late July, the plant intends to launch the hull of the first ferry to Sakhalin. Now preparatory work is under way before the descent. According to the schedule, it should take place from 24 to 29 in July, and will depend on the water level in Amur. According to the chief builder of the plant, Yury Lysenkov, the blocks of the ferry built on the slipway are fully connected. For the plant, the construction technology on the open stocks was not quite ordinary, but this did not prevent the construction.

Under the contracts, the plant will deliver the ferries at the end of this year, but at the end of the first quarter one ferry was not ready and on 20%and the second is less than 10%. Each ferry costs 4,9 billion rubles. STLC ordered them for money received from the budget and the Fund for the Development of the Far East.
