One of the new contracts that filled up Zaliv shipyard’s port-folio became the contract for construction of the floating dock with the total weight of 1217 tons for the company from Portugal. Signing of this contract finely blends the diversification politics of the shipyard as far for the present moment this type of products is highly demanded on the world market of newbuildings.
Financing of this project was undertaken by one of main financial partners of Zaliv JS Bank “Finance and Credit”. Total amount of financing constituted 2,5 mln. Euro.
It worth notifying that timely opening of credit line allowed Zaliv to secure steel delivery for this order in the full scope within the end of current year. Owing to this the steel cutting will start prior to the New Year holidays with the advance of production schedule. Such successful start will permit completion of works over construction of this order within the scheduled time frames ending on April 30, 2012.
Zaliv expects that work with the new Customer from Portugal will become one more of prospective directions in marketing strategy of the shipyard.
