Severnaya Verf Bags Major Shipbuilding Contract for Russian Navy

Official keel-laying ceremony of the Project 20385 lead corvette Gremyaschiy took place at Severnaya Verf’s slipways on February 1st. The project was developed by Almaz design bureau and is a modernized version of the Project 20380.

Combat capabilities of the new Project 20385 corvette outclass those of European and Russian analogs.

The ship is armed with Uran strike missile system, 100-mm gun mount, air defense system, tactical data system, sonar, trailed antenna, and deck-based helicopter Ka-27. The corvette has low underwater noise and sonar jamming levels. By virtue of special architectural and design solutions, the ship’s secondary radar and infrared signatures are considerably reduced.

Displacement of Project 20380 corvettes is 2,000 tons, length is over 100 meters, max speed is 27 knots, operating range is 4,000 miles. Among main advantages there are multifunctionality, compactness, low signature, high level of automation and integration of control systems.

The frigates of Project 22350 were designed by Northern Design Construction Bureau in 2003-2005. Total displacement of a Project 22350 ship is 4,500 tons; length is 130 meters; beam is 16 meters; draft is 4.5 meters; speed is 29 knots; crew is 210. Armament: 130-mm gun mount A-192; 8 anti-ship missiles 3M55 Onyx; 8 Medvedka-2 ASW missiles; 24 missiles of Uragan SAM system; Ka-32 helicopter.

At present, Severnaya Verf is building four Project 20380 corvettes, two Project 22350 frigates, and a Project 18280 special communication vessel for the Russian Navy.

Given the successful gathering last June of our 1st Port Finance International Mexico & LATAM, PFI will be holding the 2nd Mexican & LATAM PFI Forum.

This conference is a meeting point to understand Mexicans ports current and future opportunities and find solutions to challenges.

Mexico’s port development and operations is currently thriving, with great opportunities of product and service provider companies to access high value opportunities.

Mexico’s Infrastructure investment has grown from 3% of GDP in 2000 to nearly 5% in 2012.

A National Program has been launched, devoting nearly £65 billion to help modernize and develop four leading ports, construct ten specialized terminals and grow Mexico’s cargo handling capacity by 60%.

There has been a £2.9 billion investment into expanding the port of Veracruz which will increase the port’s terminals from 18 to 28 and enhance its cargo capacity to 116 million tons.
