    Zelenodolsk received an order for 5 more project 22100 coast guard ships, for FSB use in the North primarily. The lead ship of the class was laid down in 2012, and should be launched this year.
    These are the biggest ships built by the shipyard, at around 3000 tons.

    The state-owned United Shipbuilding Corporation, or USC, might undergo a radical restructuring in an attempt to lift itself out of a slump of consistently poor performance.

    The majority of enterprises in the corporation are routinely unprofitable, with many of them losing more than 500 million rubles ($15.5 million) each year, according to a report to be reviewed Friday at a conference of the Russian government's Marine Council, Kommersant reported.

    The reasons behind the company's stagnation are many and systemic: its facilities are worn out, renovation is slow, production is 20 to 50 percent more expensive than making ships abroad and takes up to twice as long.

    USC’s new strategy states that to facilitate growth, the company will require investments totaling one trillion rubles ($31 billion) by 2030, with 20 percent of that sum coming from the federal budget.

    The company’s plan hopes to increase profits from the current 160 billion rubles a year to 500 billion rubles a year by 2030.

    The plan says USC will need to completely overhaul its operations to do so, abandoning regional subholdings in favor of five new production divisions — three military and two civil.

    This restructuring would see such cornerstones of Russian shipbuilding as St. Petersburg's Baltic Shipyard and Admiralty Shipyard shut down and their operations moved to other existing facilities.

    The strategy, developed by recently appointed USC head Vladimir Shmakov, is completely the opposite of that taken by his predecessor Andrei Dyachkov, who pursued decentralization through the transfer of authority to regional sub-holdings and the construction of new shipyards.

    Dyachkov was fired in May following censure from Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, who is head of the Marine Council and oversees the defense industry.

    Individuals familiar with the topic said Shmakov's strategy could face opposition from Rogozin, who favors the development of new facilities.

    Russia's United Shipbuilding Corporation ready to build Mistral-class warships

    MOSCOW, September 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) will be able to build, if necessary, the Mistral class helicopter carriers for the Russian Defense Ministry, USC President Aleksei Rakhmanov said on Wednesday.

    He said the Baltic Shipyard has already made two stern sections for helicopter carriers the final assembly of which is made in France.

    “We can work, we know how to do this,” Rakhmanov said, adding that the hull construction makes only 25 - 30% of a helicopter carrier cost “at best.”

    “It’s quite a feasible task,” the USC chief said, referring to the prospects for the construction of Mistral class warships in Russia. “I don’t see any special challenge here, because we are roughly aware of what should be done,” he added.

    “The possibility of making orders for two more Mistral ships is a question to the Defense Ministry,” Rakhmanov said.

    Paris on Monday said it cannot deliver the first of two Mistral helicopter carrier ships to Russia.

    Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin remarked, that if France decided to transfer the ship to somebody else, it would be unlawfull as one third of that ship is Russian-made.

    “The stern section of Mistral was made at Baltic Shipyard in St. Petersburg. That is why if they want to keep the ship, we will have to tear away its stern section and get it back to use it in other ships,” Rogozin said.

    French President Francois Hollande said France had not suspended or cancelled the deal with Russia, but the delivery of the ships would depend on how the situation develops in eastern Ukraine which has been gripped by violence and fighting between militias and government troops for months.

    Hollande said these conditions were not currently in place there and if the situation deteriorated further, France would delay the delivery again.

    Earlier, he assured Russia that his country would fulfill its obligations and hand over the first ship as scheduled but the work on the second one would depend on Moscow’s position on the Ukrainian crisis.

    President Vladimir Putin said France will have to return the money paid for the ships if it refuses to deliver them.

    Russia and France signed the €1.2 billion ($1.6 billion) contract for two French-built Mistral-class helicopter carriers in June 2011.

    Under the contract, each Mistral ship has to be built by France within 36 months. The first of them, the Vladivostok, was to arrive in St. Petersburg from Saint-Nazaire, France, in December 2014.

    The second ship, the Sevastopol, is to arrive in St. Petersburg in November 2015 to make a voyage to the Pacific Fleet and join it in the second half of 2016.

    The Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex is expected to manufacture tankers with a displacement of up to 350 thousand tons, LNG carriers, ice class vessels, specialized vessels, and offshore platform units in 2020.

    After 2020 this could be a good place to start production of military aircraft carriers...

    Sarcasm... or you finally unbunched your panties... hard to tell.

    I am guessing Sarcasm as those panties were right up in there... careful that sand could come out as marbles...

    IMHO Shipbuilding was hardest hit by the post-USSR collapse , it will take the longest time to recuperate fully. It would be wise to inch a deal with Chinese to build ship frames and load it with new Russian tech. In any case , they are more reliable than French due to full strategic independence.

    That article reeks of crap... The Russian naval industry is continually restrengthening, and shouldn't rely on foreign ships... Besides, the 054A would slot right below the Gorshkov, making it compete with the indigenous and arguably superior Grigorovich. - It would be a downgrade... Its only advantage is its lower cost, but you get what you pay for!

    They claim the Gorshkov is "lacking funding and inadequate facility technology"!

    "Russia has been a mentor to China as it builds up its national defense technology. Now that the Chinese student has outpaced the Russian teacher, "there is no shame" asking for assistance from China, the report said." - Outpace? - Sure. Create better products? - Now way in $#%&!

    "China's Type 054A frigate, codenamed Jiangkai II by NATO, is a perfect fit for the Russian navy for many reasons. First of all, the model was designed and built with help from Russia's leading shipmaker, the Northern Design Bureau in St Petersburg. Second, the ship is equipped with weapons and electronic facilities that are designed according to the specs of samples, allowing the parts to be interchanged conveniently. Third, the advanced war ship meets Russian's demands for powerful weapons, invisibility, adaptability and endurance. Finally, the Type 054A frigate worked well with Russian flotillas well during the Russia-China military drill in May, which shows its capability to work side-by-side with Russian ships."

    These guys must be kidding... 

    1) Sure, it was partly designed by NDB, but what good is that when it is an export! - NBD wouldn't give them anything that Russia's fleet doesn't have...

    2) Most ships nowadays are modular, including the future Russian frigates...

    3) Powerful weapons? - All Chinese made versions of Soviet technology!

    That being said, zg18, you are correct... Scoring a deal where China *only* builds the hull etc, and Russia is the one in control of R&D would be a win-win for both countries. Russia gets the ships that it wants, at a lower cost, in less time, without compromising its other naval projects. While China, gets a paycheck and work.....

    What do you expect? It`s expected that Chinese will brag about if someone thinks in Russia that Moscow should order from Chinese shipbuilding.

    There is no denying that great progress has been achieved but also there is no denying that some programs are very slow , it would be prudent just in case to order cheap and quick delivery platforms from China and fill it with new Russian systems.

    The problem with getting the Chinese to build hulls for the Russian Navy is that if they are building them what are Russian shipyards going to be doing?

    Surely investing in a foreign company... no matter how friendly and reliable is just exporting money and expertise at the expense of the local industry.

    St Petersberg showed it could build a hull as quickly as the French and on time... where is the problem?

    BTW did you actually read the link provided?

    It is a chinese website claiming the Russian Navy wants to stop making ships and start buying Chinese ships instead... and you guys don't find that a little suspicious?

    Wantchinatimes is not a Chinese paper, they're a Pro-Taiwanese paper based in Canada and I think the head editor is the infamous Andrei Chang (the female equivalent of Gordon Chang I bet), it's like calling a Pro-Ukrainian newspaper based in Canada a "Russian newspaper".

    No no noooooo..... The idea is to have Chinese naval yards assist the Russian ones so that the Russian naval yards can focus more on other projects and be *quicker* as well. For example, Gorshkovs could be "made in China" while other ships need the attention etc. It will help boast their economy, while being cheaper for Russia...

    ^^^^^^^^^^^

    They could do it even quicker at a lower cost. Rather than having a couple Gorshkovs getting built, you could have 10 more being built without over-over-loading the Russian naval industry.

    Sketchy link to say the least, but Magnum said it for me...

    CHina building warships for Russia will be bad for Russia image... world wide.. it could damage their sales
    to India for example that buy many RUssian warships. Russia instead better build more shipyards ,they will need it..
    Things between Russia and US will only go more tense as time pass.. and Russia needs to expand and modernize
    its defense industry , so that they can develop much more faster planes ,tanks and warships. Is totally unnaceptable
    that for example Syria paid Russia for a dozen of mig-29 back in 2007 and tanks and that 7 years later Russia have failed to deliver them.. Same with India.. India had lots of problems with RUssia delays.. Algeria had problems with the quality of Russian hardware.. all those things damage the Image of Russia as a reliable vendor. Russia should have enough Industry to fulfill orders withing just one year to any frigate or combat plane they are ordered.

    Once again..... The idea is to have China build the ships that Russia can't build because of their load. This would allow Russia to receive many more ships, sooner, and at a lower cost. - In return, China gets the work and money. This wouldn't hurt their image at all, because like I mentioned earlier, it would just be "extra ships".

    Shipbuilding complex "Zvezda" will attract 10 thousand new workers

    Ship-building complex is created on the basis of the factory "Zvezda" - the only in the Far East, specializes in the repair, refurbishing and modernizing ships nuclear missile submarines.

    VLADIVOSTOK, July 2 - RIA Novosti. Under construction in Primorye shipbuilding complex "Star" will attract 10 thousand new employees, according to the regional administration with reference to the governor of the region Vladimir Miklushevsky.

    "The complex will allow us to develop production, create new jobs, improve the tax base. Ten thousand is planned to attract professionals to work: some of them - residents of Primorye, part - the newcomers. They need to build housing with developed social infrastructure," - said Miklushevsky.

    He stressed that today there are four options for the future of housing professionals. One of them - the federal program "Housing for Russian families," the second option - the creation of cooperatives of shareholders, which allows you to build housing cheaper by 30%. It is also possible to build departmental housing. And planned construction of a kindergarten for 240 places to the 2018-2019 years.

    Plant "Zvezda" in Big Stone is a leading enterprise on repair of submarines of the Pacific Fleet and the only one in the Far East, specializing in the repair, refurbishing and modernizing ships nuclear missile submarines. Now here comes the creation of the shipbuilding complex "Star".

    The first phase of construction of the shipyard ends in 2016 (it is allocated 45 billion rubles), the second and third stages - in 2018. Start of production is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2016. It is expected that the complex will be engaged in the construction of ships for the development of hydrocarbon deposits on the Arctic shelf.

    1. In the reporting year, the main work on the SDO segment were conducted in the Premier League "Irkutsk" Project 949A head. Number 619 [modernization project 949AM within state contract from 05.04.2013 № R / 1/2/0117 / GK-13-DGOZ] and submarines "Ryazan" 667BDR project manager. Number 376 [on-condition repair under the state contract from 26.08.2011 № R / 1/2/0526 / GK-11-DGOZ with the initial maturity date in 2013.]. In accordance with the decree of the Russian Government recognized the Company the sole executor of the state defense order in part to repair the deep modernization of submarines [probably submarine project 949A].
    2. Completed repairs of "Tomsk" Project 949A head. Number 663 on the main state contract [is unclear what is meant - state contract from 27.11.2009 № 714/13/27 / EC / 1339-09 for the repair of a technical extension of overhaul life of 3.5 years, or government contract from 18.12. 2012 number P / 1/2/0722 / GK-12-DGOZ to identified during repair work extra cost 499 million rubles. with maturity date in October 2013.].
