Keel laying of the Project 23120 logistic support ship Elbrus for Russian defense ministry will take place on Nov 14, 2012 at Severnaya Verf shipyard in St. Petersburg.

That event will close the list of activities associated with the shipyard's centenary. One hundred years ago, on Nov 14, 1912 the Putilovskaya Verf was established as an independent shipyard.

Through the 100-year long history, the yard has built over 250 surface warships with overall displacement over 500,000 tons for national navy and for export, and almost 300 commercial ships.

History of the Severnaya Verf shipyard is indissolubly tied to the history of St. Petersburg (in Soviet times, Leningrad). Workers of Putilovskaya Verf took active part in life of the pre-revolutionary city. During the Great Patriotic War, the shipyard named then the Zhdanov Leningrad Shipbuilding Plant did not stop production even for a minute. In the second half of 20-th century, that was Severnaya Verf who provided Soviet/Russian Navy with the most up-to-date ships.

Presently, in 21-st century JSC Severnaya Verf shipyard is still the leader of Russian shipbuilding industry. Backlog of the yard's orders till 2020 exceeds RUR 200 bln; the shipyard employs about 4,000 persons. On occasion of the shipyard's jubilee, the gun on the Petropavlovskaya Fortress in St. Petersburg will make a noon shot on Nov 12. The "jubilee shot" will be made by Alexander Ushakov, Director General of JSC Severnaya Verf.
