The total tonnage of the surrendered fleet also increased significantly. However, the number of delivered orders fell by 8%, to 94 vessels. The reduction is observed in the civilian segment, even taking into account orders, the delivery date of which has been repeatedly postponed. At the same time, 2021 may show an even greater increase in the cost of delivered orders. Experts note that this is the groundwork of the past years, and do not rule out a drop in volumes in 2022.
The Russian market of shipbuilding and shipbuilding with a tonnage of more than 50 tons decreased by 8%, to 94 ships delivered.
About 90 small vessels and boats (with a tonnage of less than 50 tons) were also built. According to the results of 2020, there is an increase in the total cost of ships and ships delivered compared to 2019 by 67%, to 229.5 billion rubles. The total tonnage increased by 59%, to 542 thousand tons.
At the same time, the number of delivered orders decreased in civil shipbuilding by almost 18%, to 62 units, and in military construction it increased by 18%, to 32 ships.
As noted in the study, the shipbuilding segment has partially increased due to the fleet, the delivery date of which has been repeatedly postponed. For example, part of United shipbuilding Corporation (USC) Sevmash passed the nuclear submarine with ballistic missiles “Prince Vladimir”, “Severnaya Verf” (part of USC) gave the Navy Corvette “Rumbling” and the frigate “Admiral Kasatonov”, Baltic “amber” (enters in OSK) passed a large landing ship “Peter Morgunov”. Shipbuilding in 2020 provided about 34% of the number of orders delivered, and in total tonnage-only 13%.
In addition, in mid-December, Zvezda (managed by a consortium of Rosneft, Rosneftegaz and Gazprombank) handed over to Rosnefteflot the lead tanker Aframax Vladimir Monomakh with a deadweight of 114 thousand tons and a cost of about 31.3 billion rubles.
Thus, at the end of the year, Zvezda took the first place in the rating of shipyards in terms of total tonnage and the second place (after Baltzavod) in terms of the cost of ships delivered, according to the InfoLine study.
In civil shipbuilding, dry cargo ships (17 units built), barges (13 units) and special vessels of the service fleet are the leaders in the number of ships delivered.
Due to the orders of previous years, 2021 can also be very positive, but from 2022 we can expect a significant drop in the volume of ship delivery.
