Today we carry on negotiations on the third and next platforms. We hope to receive orders also from Russian companies, said OAO PO Sevmash Director General Nikolay Kalistratov.

Automated design system was implemented, complex welds manufacturing procedures, large sections mounting procedures were developed to build MOSS CS-50. Such engineering solutions allowed completing platform pontoons with equipment, as well as assembling the whole structure afloat within 3.5 months. It is an optimal period for carrying out such operation at Russian shipyards.

We are sure that Sevmash can build not only platforms with free deck but also complete drilling platforms, noticed Norwegian president of Moss Maritime AS Per Herbert Christensen.
