Development of shipbuilding industry
Let me address to you in that way. Because it is
just in that way that the concern "UKRPROM1NVEST" always builds
up relations with all our Clients and Partners. The major investor
thereof is Ukrainian Industrial and Investment Concern named as
"UKRPROMINVEST", and owing to this fact the above enterprise became
one of the principal shipbuilders in Ukraine nowadays, Me, I was
at the head of Ukrainian Industrial and Investment Concern "UKRPROM1NVEST"
before being elected as the People's Deputy of Ukraine.
And though today I am working on a permanent basis in the Supreme Soviet
of Ukraine as the Chairmanof Subcommittee for Securities, Share and
Investment Markets attached to Committee for Financial and Bank Activity,
even now I feel myself as a part of this so wonderful team. That's why
it was especially very pleasant for me to get such proposal as to prepare
introductory article to this booklet. It is already for a long time
that nobody is surprised at one thing: in Kiev, so far from the sea,
on the riverside of the old "grey" Dnieper, ocean-going ships and vessels
are under construction. Formerly, in the ex-Soviet Union, according
to the strategy of industrial development, the most powerful shipbuilding
plants have been located at the rivers, in the middle of the country's
territory - e.g. in Gorky city (now it is Nizhny Novgorod), in Khabarovsk,
Komsomolsk-at-Amur, Zeienodolsk and others. A decision referring to
the development of powerful industrial shipbuilding sector in Kiev,
at the plant "Leninska Kuznya", has been taken about 40 years ago. The
time has shown that such decision has become viable, very correct, accurate
and active. The industrial policy of the plant has been always oriented
to the following: constant modernization of production , search for
new technologies, cooperation with several dozens of scientific/research
entities and design bureaus available in Kiev, and the latter is aimed
at the checking of new technical solutions . All above contribute to
a stable development of shipbuilding production.
has been established with such well-known and world-recognized institutions
as below given:
Institute of Electric
Welding named by academician Paton, Institute of Power and Capacities,
Institute for Problems of Founding, Hydrodynamics Institution, Institute
for Materials Study, Institution for Chemistry of Surfaces, Hydroacoustics
Institution, scientific/research Institute "Kvant", and other organizations
located in Kiev and in other recognized centres of shipbuilding industry.
It's already in our times that all shipbuilding workshops have been
modernized; up-to-date assembly/welding equipment, cleaning units, systems
for primer application and equipment to cut shipbuilding steel have
been mounted. Ships and vessels constructed at our shipyard are equipped
with the advanced installations and units produced by the world-known
leaders in manufacturing of radio communication equipment, navigational
means, fish-finding technique, fishing gears; we mount as well the best
units of Ukrainian production, and first of all those ones manufactured
at the enterprises after conversion process, which have been recognized
officially and received corresponding Certificates. The hightened requirements
to our plant as to metropolitan enterprise had a wholesome influence
on a growth of general engineering level, staff training, creative industrial
organization. It's because of all above that the plant "Leninska Kuznya"
was not lost among the giant factories of the national shipbuilding
industry located at sea - we mean such cities as Nickolaev , Kherson,
Kerch. The creative work as to the making of perfected specimen and
samples is always connected to research of the most rational structure
of management and industrial organization. Mastering of the straight-line
flow method of building the vessels with the so-called forced rhythm,
development of special method for the serial vessels to simulate their
sea trials in a full scope permitted to construct the ships with minimum
expenses and very high quality. A created technical potential of the
plant gives the possibility to construct vessels and floating facilities
of any destination and dimensions, taking into account the largest capacities
of locks and bridges at the river Dnieper. Because of all above, a construction
of sophisticated vessels and facilities with high technologies for 1
kg of structures was always considered as mostly reasonable just here,
at the building berthes of Kiev shipyard "Leninska Kuznya". The plant
possesses a significant experience in the building of fishing freezer
trawlers and tuna ships, automated dredges, chemical tankers, antisubmarine
ships, scientific/research vessels, geological survey vessels. That's
why that special structures for underground, for construction of dwelling
houses of monolitic concrete and others are ordered just here. It is
thanks to a long-term persistent work that the plant has earned its
good name, and this name is now a visiting card for the new Clients.
It's especially important taking into account a very high price of the
vessels and the time required for their construction. A positive credit
policy of the company, ability and skill to cooperate with large credit
institutions, including the foreign offices, ability to accumulate and
to use the vast financial resources with efficient results, to observe
the terms of the vessels construction led to such a situation that last
years the majority of the Clients for our ships and hulls are from the
foreign countres. We meet the most exacting requirements referring to
the vessel's building under the supervision of world-known Classification
Societies: Lloyd's Register from England (LRS), Germanischer Lloyd (GL),
Bureau Veritas (BV), Maritime Register of Shipping-with all of them
we have rather long experience of cooperation. The interests of our
Clients and quality of production are of priority here. That's why the
plant management esteems that the priority direction of their activity
should be cooperative approach to the newbuildings for our foreign Customers.
So, plant management accepts positively wishes of the Clients to involve
companies from their countries with the aim to fit out vessels and ships.
Reorganization of management
was carried out with the permanent aim to keep and raise technical equipping,
technical reequipment, involving of highly-skilled specialists - all
this permit to propose below listed ships and vessels constructed at
the Kiev shipyard "Leninska Kuznya" with a guarantee, with a high quality
and in a short period of time:
- Fishing freezer trawlers, carrying refrigerating vessels for the
fisheries of Ukraine, Russia, CIS and other foreign countries, including
the vessels built on the basis of already developed and mastered new
project 12800, and also new designs of vessels NoNo 5025M, 50016, 50018,
- Fish-protecting and fish-finding vessels.
- Scientific/research and geological prospecting vessels on the basis
of project No 5025M.
