The shipyard's backlog of orders now has grown to RUR 55-million. Revenue of Baltiysky Zavod Shipbuilding Ltd in 2012 is evaluated as RUR 12.7-billion (in the last year – RUR 1.3-billion).

"Primarily, we need qualified arc welders, assemblers of shipboard systems, crane operators and chippers", she said.
