President Vladimir Putin was informed that Rosneft would build a metallurgical plant in the Far East to provide rolling stock for the Zvezda shipyard. This statement was made by the head of the company Igor Sechin. The plant will require investments of $ 2.2 billion, at the output it will provide a capacity of 1.5 million tons of steel and pipe products, of which only a quarter will be processed by the shipyard itself. Earlier, the Ministry of Industry and Trade denied the profitability of this plant, while metallurgists objected to it altogether, considering the project economically ineffective and redundant. Writes about this “Kommersant”. The plant will be located near the Sukhodol Bay near the Bolshoy Kamen Bay, where Zvezda is located. The feasibility study was prepared by the Chinese MCC International Incorporation. The new steel production will also require the construction of additional power facilities. The Zvezda shipyard should become the first in the country to build large deadweight vessels, including oil tankers and gas carriers. The plant will use the large-block assembly method
