At stage of preparation to implement the shipbuilding program, the building sites and launching arrangement for launch of the ships hulls length up to 105 meters from shore have been created. The annual capacity of the ship assembly production was not less than 1200 tons of steel. The first-class engineers, shipbuilders and workers from abroad, including several dozen assemblers, welders and pipefitters from Vietnam were attracted to carry out such program. Furthermore, complete reconstruction of dock facilities has been implemented with the purpose to get an opportunity of simultaneous construction of not less than 4 – 5 low tonnage ships with main dimensions of length - up to 56.0 m, width - up to 8,2 m, and draft - up to 3.0 m.
