Nordic Yards at Russia's Top Shipbuilding Fair
Tuesday, September 24, 2013

"Russia is and will remain an essential market for us", stated Vitaly Yusufov, owner and Managing Director of Nordic Yards. "Since their foundation our shipyards in Wismar and Warnemünde have built 400 vessels for the Russian market alone, and nearly 120 featuring ice class 1A or higher."

Currently there are a number of Russian contracts in the Nordic order books. For example yesterday, September 23, construction of two ice-breaking rescue and salvage ships ordered by Russia's Ministry of Transport in December 2012 started at the Nordic Yards shipyard in Wismar. After delivery in 2015 they will be used for patrol and rescue operations on the northern Polar Sea route. This August Rosmorport, Russia's state shipping company, commissioned Nordic Yards to build a deckhouse with high-tech facilities and equipment for the world's largest conventional icebreaker. In addition Nordic Yards cooperates closely with the Krylov State Research Center, the shipbuilding research institute in St. Petersburg. In April 2013 the two partners signed a cooperation contract at the Hanover Fair.

The biennial NEVA Trade Fair with its congresses on the subject of shipbuilding, shipping and offshore projects always attracts a large international public to St. Petersburg. The largest trade fair of its kind in Russia provides Nordic Yards with an ideal platform to present to potential customers its expertise and reference projects from the offshore oil and gas sector as well as Arctic operations, together with innovative projects such as LNG carriers. Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's Minister of Economics Harry Glawe has announced that he will be visiting the Nordic stand on September 24.
