The main reason for construction of a new complex is that, on the historically existing site with the waterway depth of 4 m on the Neva River one can build ships with a length of up to 50 m, and the waterway depth of 6 m at the site of a new shipyard allows building marine vessels with a length of 50-100 m.
The Government of Leningrad Region signed an agreement on regional support of this project, as its realization will attract investments amounting to 6 billion rubles and create at least 1,200 new highly technological workplaces, an increase in industrial output from 4.7 billion rubles in 2016 to 17 billion rubles in 2019.
CEO of Pella Gerbert Tsaturov
Pella produces technical vessels - marine tugboats, rescue vessels, service and auxiliary boats, supply and servicing vessels for servicing boats in both ports and waters. In total, around 120 tugboats were supplied to all regions of Russia and exported elsewhere.
In 2016 a new shipyard was opened, which allowed for the construction of at least eight 50-100 m long fishing boats and marine vessels per year. Currently, this is the only compact shipyard in Russia.
