Director General for the Severnoye
Design Bureau

Severnoye Design Bureau Joint Stock Company

The Severnoye Design Bureau, a leading company designing surface ships in Russia, was founded on 22 April 1946. Throughout the Bureau's more than 65-year life a team of highly qualified naval architects was formed there that is capable of solving the most complicated tasks in the area of designing ships and vessels.

The Bureau has worked out more than a hundred designs of ships and vessels of different purpose ranging from 500-ton patrol boat to 26,000-ton heavy nuclear-powered cruiser, and from whaling boat to bulker. In general, more than 550 ships and vessels with the total displacement of about 1.5 million tons have been built by the Bureau's designs. All of them are notable for their seaworthiness, reliability and operation economy. Some of the vessels were exported.

Within the last 20 years the Severnoye Design Bureau has developed designs of refrigerator vessels, trawlers, passenger vessels (SWATH vessel inclusive), environmental vessels with systems of water and atmosphere ecological monitoring, vessels for collection and integrated processing of waste oily water and solid wastes, a hospital vessel. The Severnoye Design Bureau takes part in the Russian Navy Revival programme. More than 20 pilot projects have been worked out and offered on approval.

The ships and vessels designing process in the Bureau is most up-to-date and distinguished by use of new computer aids and software.

The Bureau has all the licences and certificates required for development of weapons and military equipment, namely: warships, boats, ships of special purpose, supply vessels, associated hardware and propulsion plants elements.

The scientific and production potential of the Severnoye Design Bureau allows it to meet all the challenges of designing war ships and commercial vessels.
