Zvezda Shipyard Deepening Project Receives Approval

Russia’s General Board of State Expert Review (Glavgosexpertiza) recently issued a positive assurance based on engineering survey results and design documentation for the new phases of the ZVEZDA shipbuilding construction project.

The project includes rebuilding of a deep-water pier, Shallow and Southern embankments of the shipyard which is being built in Bolshoi Kamen, on the coast of the Ussuri Bay.

The reconstruction work will include deepening of the embankments for future docking and outfitting of launched vessels, as well as the laying of shore power lines and connection boxes/receptacles, installation of a 32-tonne overhead traveling crane, a distribution transformer substation with floodlight towers.

Shallow water embankment is a 189.2 meter long and intended for docking, outfitting of vessels and mooring tests of ships launched with water displacement of more than 3,500 tonnes. The 141.27 meter Southern embankment was designed for short-term mooring of support vessels of the shipbuilding cluster.

Upon completion of rebuilding of the embankments that were built back in 1961-1964 the structures will be used to support the construction of sea-going and special vessels.
