The Nevsky Shipbuilding and Ship Repair Plant (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) celebrates its 110th anniversary November 6th.
Founded in 1913 as the Shlisselburg ship repair workshops, the company established the repair of state-owned steamships, dredging vessels and other movable equipment of the district. In 1936, the Shlisselburg ship repair workshops were already carrying out large-scale ship repairs and were transformed into the Shlisselburg ship repair plant of the 2nd category.
In 1941, the factory team began work on converting civilian ships into warships. During the years of evacuation, the plant sent large quantities of military products to the front, while at the same time the plant workers mastered military specialties. After returning from evacuation, the plant was transferred to the first category and became known as the Nevsky Shiprepairing and Shipbuilding Plant of the North-Western River Shipping Company.
In 1952, the plant began serial shipbuilding – the creation of motor ships of the Leningradets series. The construction of oil tankers and barges for transporting sand was also mastered. Since then, more than 360 ships of various classes and purposes have left the slipways of the Nevsky Shipyard.
Today the company specializes in the construction of all types of vessels: tankers, dry cargo ships, tugs, service and crew ships, technical fleet and support fleet vessels.
Over the past ten years, the plant has produced a number of high-tech products. These are multifunctional ice-going vessels of projects MPSV07 and MPSV12, unique in their equipment and technical capabilities, two cargo-passenger ferries of project PV22, and a medium sea tanker of project 23130 “Akademik Pashin”.
The current order portfolio of the Nevsky Shipyard includes three series of ships. The plant has accumulated a significant level of competence in the production of ships and ships, which allows it to expand its product line.
