VLADIVOSTOK, November 24 (Itar-Tass) — One of Russia's best ship-repairing entrerprises will appear in the maritime city of Bolshoi Kamen (big stone), First Vice-Premier Igor Shuvalov said on Thursday during a meeting with the residents of that city.
Shuvalov said the city-forming enterprise -- the ship-repairing yard Zvezda (star) already now is "one of the highest-capacity shipbuiding enterprises in the country" and "a basic one for filling State-placed order of the Ministry of Defence".
"Apart from filling defence orders, the enterprise must also work for the civilian sector. There is a relevant project for that. The project will be implemented jointly with South Korea. The plant has already set up a large construction site: work there is in full progress and many jobs have been created. The coming three to four years will see the need for about 3,000 other workers. Many of them will arrive together with their families. This means that the need will also arise to establish infrastructure," Shuvalov pointed out.
The Russo-South Korean large-scale project is being implemented in Bolshoi Kamen: to build a new modern shipbuilding yard on the basis of the Zvezda plant.
The Zvezda-DSME will be Russia's only shipbuilding plant for the manufacture of large-tonnage vessels with a displacement of up to 300,000 tonnes and the scope of metal worked amounting to 220,000 tonnes. The yard is to be put into operation towards the end of 2013. The future shipyard already has a number of customers, among them such large companies as Rosneft.
