KHERSON "PALLADA": UNIQUE COMPOSITE DOCKS AND NET INCOME INCREASED 25 TIMES

UKROBORONPROM Kherson State Plant "Pallada" ended 2017 with 233 million UAH of net income. The unique production of composite floating docks allowed the plant to enrich the budgets of all levels by 60 million UAH taxes.

For comparison, in 2014, the enterprise received only 9 million UAH of net income. But systematic work of UKROBORONPROM management and effective talks of “Pallada” leadership at international exhibitions allowed to increase this figure almost 25 times in just 3 years.

Last year “Pallada” transferred the dock "ERENEOS" – the first composite dock certified by the American Bureau of Shipping for the first time in the history of Ukrainian shipbuilding industry and the Bureau – to the customer. This dock is already operated by the Port of Limassol, Cyprus.

"ERENEOS" has a carrying capacity of 7100 tons; the length of the deck is 120 meters, which exceeds the length of the football field; immersion depth is 12.2 meters. The hull is made from heavy marine concrete, and its conning towers – from ship steel. This combination of materials allows reducing the operating costs of the dock by 2-2.5 times, compared to similar steel docks.
