Having celebrated its 100-th jubilee on Nov 14, Severnaya Verf shipyard is workloaded with contracts up to 2020, said the shipyard's director Alexander Ushakov.
"Speaking of naval shipbuilding, we have enough work up to 2020. So far, we must implement current orders. In the future, we would possibly face the most advanced projects. I've seen presentation of new Project 20386 corvette developed by Almaz design bureau, a destroyer and a new nuclear-powered cruiser, as well as participated in demonstration of an aircraft carrier for Russian Navy", said Alexander Ushakov. "For prospect, Almaz bureau has project of a harbor defense corvette and so forth. So, I'm sure that Severnaya Verf will definitely have new orders and will definitely take part in tenders and construction of the most up-to-date ships for our country", he concluded.
According to Ushakov, Severnaya Verf is one of the few Russian shipyards certified to build nuclear-powered ships. "If defense ministry decides to realize the nuclear-powered destroyer project, most likely the ship will be built at our shipyard", added the director.
