General Director of "TK “RM-steel" Alexei Venediktov, shared his impressions:
- SMM is the leading exhibition in the field of shipbuilding. It is possible to see the whole color of world shipbuilding. For the most part, it's civil and commercial firms. Manufacturers of military products in the minority here, but nevertheless they are present.
I was surprised that in the shipbuilding market there are new countries, such as India, Bangladesh, and Malaysia. This presence is despite the inclusion of China, which is actively developing and begins to build complex ships.
- How do you assess the situation in the market of commercial shipbuilding prevailing today?
- Currently, the Russian shipyard is loaded mainly with the construction of military and specialized courts. Basically, it's orders related to the implementation of the federal program.
In Europe, there are active constructions of new units of the fleet, including the modern icebreakers, fishing and rescue vessels, support vessels, and others. There is active construction in Italy; there is building boat-dock for the transportation of nuclear reactors. In the final stage is the construction of two ro-ro ships and fishing vessels in Croatia. They are building ships in Germany and Finland.
