In English it is possible to study contents of article below:

Development of transport infrastructure of the Crimean peninsula and first of all the ferry line port Caucasus – port Crimea now appears among prime national objectives. Really, the crossing is one of the main components for passazhiro-, tovaro-and goods turnover of Sevastopol and the Crimea in general. Many kilometers turns on ferries are built even in the winter. Therefore, shipping and ship repair in the Crimea is a question of life support.

Work in similar conditions imposes special freight of responsibility on the profile enterprises, it is necessary to carry out mobilization of all production and personnel resources. But on the other hand, perhaps, it will also be the main advantage of the Crimean enterprises before Russian: a responsible approach to each customer, fight for each client.

By such principle work of the Sevastopol shiprepair  yard “Yuzhniy sevastopol” is based.

Shipyard “Yuzhniy” is on the water area of the Sevastopol sea fish port in the Kamishovaya bay. Navigation in port lasts all the year round. Depths on an entrance to port from 20,0 meters, on the water area from 20,0 meters to 6,0 bays prevailing in the southern part. The water area of ship-repair yard “Yuzhniy” is located along southeast part of the Kamishovaya bay. Length of the mooring line makes 820 meters and 142 meters of the floating positioned moorings near a floating dock.

In an asset of the enterprise there is a floating dock with a loading capacity of 8500 t and with a working length of 139 meters, the floating crane with a loading capacity of 100 t, and also portal cranes with a loading capacity of 10, 15, 20 tons. The plant has opportunity to make repair of courts weighing up to 100 tons. Besides, at plant there is own uninterrupted power supply that is actual for the Crimea ship repairers.

For decades of work of the enterprise more than 200 courts were repaired, modificated and converted. Among the executed orders appear: two passenger boats with a capacity up to 200 people for service of coastal sea lines, two trawlers of coastal fishing 18 meters long, four railway ferries (with a capacity from 25 to 50 cars), and also the car-and-passenger ferry (capacity of 300 people and 34 cars). Also vessels for transportation of coal with change of overall dimensions were converted.

As we already noted, now the special place in activity of the enterprise is taken by repair of car and railway ferries which carry out a cargo transportation on a ferry Crimea port — Caucasus port and in the directions — Russia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Georgia.

In 2013 shipyard handed over the passenger ferry “Nikolay Aksyonenko” which the Crimea port – Caucasus port works at a ferry today.

In June, 2014 the shipyard finished works on modernization of the Sevastopol ferry which also joined the courts transporting on a railway ferry Crimea port – Caucasus port.  Passenger-and-freight ferry “Sevastopol” has opportunity for single transportation of 290 passengers and 34 units of motor transport.

Acted as customers of works and both private shipowners, and large shipping companies from Russia, Ukraine and other CIS countries, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and other regions of the world act.

For today the staff of shipyard makes 300 people of highly skilled and working and technical experts. At large volumes of repairs or conversion of ships contract organizations which are worthy proved in the market.

Many customers, to the Crimea events of 2014, preferred the Kerch and Sevastopol enterprises for repair. In many respects, of course, being guided by the smaller cost of works, than at the Russian colleagues. The situation was a little replaced and now among advantages of the Crimean enterprises “price” changes on “an advantageous geographical position” or “optimum dates of performance of works” etc. The competition is necessary serious. But shipbuilders of the Crimea look at it with optimism.
