This will become the basis for establishing of the first high-tech shipyard in Russia. As part of the project, in order to ensure modern standards of industrial and environmental safety, the plant's infrastructure will be updated.

In parallel, together with the St. Petersburg State Marine Technical University, at the plant an integrated digital production information system will be created that will unite all shipyard divisions and transform their business processes in order to effectively manage the construction of vessels. Besides, the preparation of the personnel for work in digital production will be carried out.

It is planned that after carrying out modernization and digitalization of the enterprise, its productivity will increase by several times, and the high-tech shipyard project can be repeated at other enterprises in the shipbuilding industry of Russia.
