Zelenodolsk Shipyard launched two vessels on the eve of the Russian Navy Day – sea-going tug MB-12 and anti-terror boat Grachonok, told the yard's press service to Central Navy Portal.

The shipyard effectively executes this year's production program building ships both for Russian Navy and for export.

According to plans coordinated with Russian Navy command, patrol ship Dagestan is supposed to pass trials and join Caspian Flotilla in the current year. It is the first ship armed with the newest multipurpose missile system Caliber-NK. The ship is almost ready for towage to Novorossiysk Naval Base via inland watercourses; Dagestan will leave the shipyard in the nearest days.

Sea-going tug MB-12 for Northern Fleet was launched on July 30. It is the first tug of this kind built under modernized Project 745MB. Right after that, the first serial anti-terror boat Grachonok (hull number 982) was launched from the yard's slipways. Construction of Project Buyan-M small-size missile ships is actively going on. The hull of the lead one – Grad Sviyazhsk – has been almost completed and is being filled with equipment. The second ship – Uglich – was laid down on July 22; keel-laying of the third hull is scheduled on Aug 30, the Republic of Tatarstan Day.

Alongside with defense orders, Zelenodolsk Shipyard builds passenger vessels and river-sea class tankers. Launching ceremony of the first Project A-145 fast-speed passenger vessel will be held on Aug 16. The ship is designed for passenger transportations during Winter Olympics 2014 in Sochi.
