The Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex and the Shipbuilding and Composites company will become the key producers of the Primorye industrial cluster in the field of shipbuilding and ship repair.
This was discussed at a meeting led by the deputy chairman of the government of the region Nikolai Stetsko.

In his presentation, the Minister of Industry and Trade of Primorye, Serey Kalitin, stressed that the main prerequisites for the creation of such a cluster are the availability of production facilities and competencies in the field of shipbuilding and ship repair, educational and scientific base in the region, as well as demand for the construction and repair of ships, the development of production of products and components.

“Our goal is to attract investments into the industry and increase production volumes, develop the production of products and components for shipbuilding and ship repair in the region, including those appearing in various import substitution lists. In addition, when forming a cluster, we take into account the need to expand existing and form new cooperative ties not only between enterprises in the industry, but also with the inclusion of enterprises in other fields, receiving state support,” the minister said.

According to him, the industrial ship repair and shipbuilding cluster in Primorye is going to be launched in 2024.
