The Nevsky Shipbuilding and Ship Repair Plant (part of the USC) restored the armored fire VPB-3 (Izhora Tower) and transferred it to the Breakthrough Siege of Leningrad Museum-Reserve.
In October 2021, the team of the Russian Railways search squad (SPb GBU TsPVM Dzerzhinets) approached the museum-reserve “Breakthrough of the Siege of Leningrad” with a proposal to donate to the museum a relic of the battles for Leningrad – an armored firing point VPB-3 (“Izhora Tower” ), found on the territory of the Kirovsky district of the Leningrad region.
The tower had damage and losses, including from a long stay in damp ground. Serious restoration was required, which was carried out by the Nevsky Shipbuilding and Ship Repair Plant in the course of many years of patronage. On the basis of historical drawings, the plant’s specialists created a layout plan for restoration work, performed sandblasting, painting and other restoration work.
On the eve of the 77th anniversary of the Great Victory, the VPB-3 point took its place of honor in the exposition of the Breaking Siege of Leningrad museum among many other exhibits, which were also restored by the plant’s specialists.
