World record set by technological college Nevsky Shipyard (SNSZ), which is part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC). For the first time in the world here successfully implemented completely fill composite hull displacement of nearly 1,000 tonnes.
"The achievement of engineers and shipbuilders SNSZ hit not only in the Guinness Book of Records, but also to all the specialized international publications as an important milestone in the development of non-metallic hull technology in shipbuilding", — Said on Saturday the president of "USC" Roman Trocenko, summing up the corporation’s participation in the Fifth International Maritime Defence Show in St. Petersburg.
In turn, the general director of "SNSZ" Vladimir Seredoho said that the record was in the shop, where we are working on the housing project trawler 12700 commissioned by the Russian Navy.
