    Shipbuilding Plant in Azerbaijan
    31.07.2009

    In Azerbaijan, will be built shipyard, including the manufacture of warships.

    "Azerbaijan is negotiating with foreign companies for construction in Baku shipbuilding factory, modern standards", - said President Ilham Aliyev at a government meeting on the basis of socio-economic development in the first half. The Head of State noted that he had already selected a foreign investor to finance the construction of such an enterprise. At the same time, he said, the project must involve state-owned oil and investment company. "We need to make sure that construction began as early as next year and completed in a short period of time. This should be the plant, which will be any court, including for military purposes," - said Aliyev.

    Awesome stuff, interesting how that patrol boat and corvette are all Western/Israeli technology too, Azerbaijan looks to be getting a good deal with the Israelis.

    What's the shipyard scheduled to produce? Anything larger than those corvettes? (I'm guessing they are < 10 ton displacement)

    So are there three Typhoon cannon mounts... 12.7mm mini mount. 23mm and 30mm?

    The photos above clearly show the 23mm model.

    It is based on the Zu-23 which suggests the 23 x 152mm high velocity round.

    It's currently producing the fast patrol boat & OPV designs of Israel Shipyards, while the Saar S-72 is proposed.

    The 23mm version is mounted on the fast patrol boats, while the 30mm version will be mounted on OPVs.

    The fourth Azerbaijani border guard ship of the Israeli project OPV 62

    As reported on the official website of the President of Azerbaijan, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev visited the Center for Construction and Repair of Ships of the Coast Guard of the State Border Service of Azerbaijan in the Baku settlement of Turkan on August 24, 2017, where he got acquainted with the fourth completed construction of the second class S-204 border patrol ship at this enterprise Israeli project OPV 62 (also used the designation Saar 62, the Azerbaijani designation type Tufan). Almost finished building, the ship was on a slip in pre-launch readiness and then was launched. Then the President of Azerbaijan took part in the ceremony of laying the OPV 62 project in the slipway of the Center, which was in the initial stage of construction of the sixth ship (the fifth ship of this project was in the same building under construction).
