The Baltic Shipyard (Baltiysky Zavod)
Zavod is situated in the western part of St. Petersburg, on Vassilievsky
Island, at the outlet of Greater Neva. The enterprise is specializing
in complex high-technology large ships, including nuclear-powered ones.
In the past, these were mostly warships;
nowadays, Baltiysky Zavod has a number of interesting projects to offer
to the Russian and international civilian market. These are icebreaking
transport ships, nuclear- and diesel-powered floating power stations,
offshore supply and service ships, floating desalting plants.
almost a century and a half, Baltiysky Zavod embodies the latest scientific
and technological achievements in the construction of highly sophisticated
and unique ships. It holds a monopoly among the Russian shipyards in the
construction of surface ships and ships with a nuclear power plant. From
the beginning the yard was oriented towards building ships for the Russian
Navy. Lately the construction of civil ships has become our prime goal.
Nowadays Baltiysky Zavod has established a reputation as a reliable supply
source of commercial ships among owners all over the world. Chemical carriers,
floating power supply units, icebreaking ships for offshore oil/gas fields
support are the priority projects for the yard. Baltiysky Zavod is largely
self-sufficient and currently employs over 6000 employees. It consists
of the following productions: shipbuilding, marine machine building and
metallurgical. Besides, an in-hose Design Center, Material Procurement,
Quality Assurance and many other departments support the shipbuilding
process. The yard produces ship's equipment and various mechanisms not
only for its own ships under construction but for other Russian shipyards
