JSC United Shipbuilding Corporation is the leading shipbuilding company in Russia, created in 2007 in line with the decree of the President of the Russian Federation. The holding includes over 40 design and engineering bureaus, specialized research and scientific centres, shipyards, ship repair and machine building enterprises, which compose the consolidated majority of the Russian shipbuilding complex.
USC’s enterprises operate in all of the port and transportation hubs of the country from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok and from Severodvinsk to Astrakhan. Practically all the combat ships being built or developed for the Russian Navy and for the export are the fruit of labour of the USC Group’s design bureaus.
The biggest task, which the USC is facing in commercial shipbuilding is to satisfy the needs of the domestic companies in icebreakers, research, search and rescue and auxiliary vessels as well as in a variety of maritime equipment to explore the continental shelf.
