Zvezda Shipyard receives its new crane equipment
Rosneft says Zvezda's Shipbuilding Complex has taken delivery of another batch of crane equipment for hydraulic engineering facilities for the shipyard.
Three tower cranes have been transported to the shipyard by water.
Two luffing jib cranes of 50/10 tonnes in capacity will be mounted at the deep-water pier while one crane with a fixed length jib of 70 tonnes in capacity will be installed at the outfitting quay No 1. The cranes will be used for assembling and outfitting works, Rosneft says.
A batch of crane equipment for hydraulic engineering installations, three cranes and a container loader were delivered to Zvezda at the end of December 2020, as stated earlier.
The shipyard has a unique fleet of crane equipment, including two Goliaths of 1,200 tonnes, each fitted with smart automated control systems, with units of different lifting capability and purpose.
On the orders of Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex is being built by the Rosneft-led Consortium.
At the moment, the order portfolio of The Shipyard reaches 50 vessels (59 vessels including options). Rosneft, which placed an order for 28 vessels, provides the Shipyard's pilot throughput.
The product line of Zvezda will include vessels with a displacement of up to 350 tonnes, marine platform parts, commercial cargo vessels, specialty vessels and other types of marine equipment of any complexity, characteristics and function, including those not previously manufactured in Russia due to the lack of launching and hydraulic structures needed.
