Concern of Medium and Small Tonnage Shipbuilding JSC
The Interregional Investment Bank (MIB) controls the Kaliningrad-based Yantar shipyard through the Concern of the Middle and Small Tonnage Shipbuilding (KSMK), which also controls the Vympel and Amur shipyards. The Medium- and Small-Tonnage Shipbuilding Concern (the Russian acronym KSMK) is involved in the implementation of state policy of reforming Russia's defense industry. The Russian President, the State Council of the Russian Federation and the Russian Government set a task of beginnig reforms in Russia's defense industry complex and establishing integrated research, production and financial structures capable of fulfilling the state defense order and supplying modern types of armament and military equipment in Russia's complex economic conditions. The Concern of Medium and Small Tonnage Shipbuilding (KSMK) Joint-Stock Company was founded under Russian Government Resolution No.713 «On Federal Target Programme «2002-2006 Reformation and Development of the Military Industrial Complex» of 11 October 2001.
The Medium- and Small-Tonnage Shipbuilding Concern and its enterprises give a good example of the viability of these structures. The Concern was established by the Almaz Central Marine Design Bureau (Russia's leading architect of small and medium tonnage ships); the Khabarovsk Shipbuilding Plant; the Amur Shipbuilding Plant; the Yantar Baltic Shipbuilding Plant; the Sredne-Nevsky Shipbuilding Plant; the Vympel Shipbuilding Plant; and the Interregional Investment Bank. The Concern closely cooperates with the Russian Shipbuilding Agency; the Ministry of Defense; the Federal Border Guard Service; the Rosoboronexport Federal State Unitary Enterprise; the Ministry of Emergency Situations; the State Customs Committee; and the State Committee for Fishing.
The Concern specializes in the development, construction and modernization of ships (boats), vessels and shipboard systems. It concentrates on optimizing the use of production capacities of shipbuilding plants; integrating their information, technological, export and intellectual potential; supporting the fulfillment of the state defense order; and providing for managerial coordination and corporate cooperation at the integrated infrastructure level.
The Concern's enterprises build a wide range of small- and medium-displacement ships (vessels) for the international and domestic markets. They offer submarines, the Projects 266M, 266ME and 10750 minesweepers, the Projects 12418, 12421 and 12300 missile-gun boats and the Projects 14310 and 12150 patrol boats. Their civil products include tugs; diving, fishing, firefighting and research vessels; dry cargo ships; tankers; oil-producing sea platforms, etc.
The KSMK enterprises have been contracted by the Federal Border Guard Service to launch production of the Project 14310 Mirazh border-guarding patrol ship, Project 12150 Mangust patrol boat, Project 12310 Ogonyok river border-guarding gunboat, Project 14170 Terier patrol boat and Project 6457S Sprut environmental patrol boat. Joint large-scale efforts to qualitatively reinforce the sea fleet of the Federal Border Guard Service for biological resource protection in Russia 's economic zone eventuated, in June 2002, in the signing of the General Agreement on mutually beneficial cooperation between the Federal Border Guard Service and the KSMK.
