The Nevskoye Planning and Design bureau [also known as PKB Nevskoye, Neva Design Bureau and the Nevsky Design Bureau] is Russia's primary designer of large surface vessels. Currently, the bureau became part of United Shipbuilding Corporation JSC as a subsidiary. Work has included design of heavy aircraft carriers & largelanding ships, as well as civlian tankers, bulk cargo carriers andcar carriers transporting ships. Founded in 1931, Nevskoye is the oldest institution for naval architecture in Russia.

Neva PKB is the oldest in the country, the Bureau of surface naval shipbuilding. It is organized by the January 18, 1931 order of the Central Board of the All-Union Association of Shipbuilding Industry "Soyuzverf". The aim of the new company was the central design and development work for the military shipbuilding in order to expedite the revival and further development of the Naval Forces of the Red Army, as it was then called our Navy.

Today PJSC "Neva PKB" - a leading design bureau Russian shipbuilding industry, prime contractor for the design and provision of documentation, construction, repair, maintenance, refurbishment and modernization of the largest and most sophisticated warships ocean areas - aircraft carriers and large amphibious ships and naval Aviation and technical facilities and landing equipment, air-technical unit ground testing and training facility of naval aviation.

Before the Great Patriotic War, the Project Officebuilt more than a hundred ships, which allowed not only to renew and replenish much of the Baltic and Black Sea fleets, but also lay the foundations for the creation of two new ones - the North and the Pacific. In the period 1946-1950, based NPKB (at the time - CDB-17), created a new design groups: CDB-53 (now - Northern PKB), ICBC and CDB-16 (in 1974 became part of the SPMBM "Malachite"). Since 1950, the Office was focused on the creation of light artillery cruisers, and with the termination of their construction performed work on the design of ships and vessels oceanic nuclear missile fleet, including - for the development of new weapons and rocket and space technology.

Since 1958 NPKB started creating anti-submarine -cruisers "Moscow" and expeditionary oceanographic ships (with 1966 - Tracking ship) types of "Siberia" and "Chazhma", since 1963 - a large landing craft type "Voronezh Komsomolets" and "Ivan Rogov", since 1964 - the floating rocket-technical bases (PRTB), since 1966 the floating command and measurement points to ensure the development of "Cosmonaut Vladimir Komarov" of the cosmos, since 1968 - the heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser type "Kiev" "Admiral Kuznetsov", and others. in total in 1931-1991 GG 45 project offices, 16 plants in 10 cities throughout the country, has built more than 300 ships and vessels of various classes and purposes.

Creating the best of them, it received the Lenin Prize (1977) and ten Stalin State Prizes (1942-1981), awarded hundreds of employees NPKB orders and medals of the USSR and Russia. The merits of the collective in the creation and development of new technology Bureau awarded awarding the Order of Lenin (1977) and the October Revolution (1984), and the award of the Commemorative Naval Flag (1982).

Ever since the mid-1970s, the Bureau took the leading position in the domestic shipbuilding surfaced on the use of computers in the design and maintenance of building ships. Implemented and mastered modern computer software production based on network hardware and software with the latest networking technologies of information processing in the corporate information system.

Since 1992, due to the sharp reduction in the Navy orders NPKB takes an active part in international projects on military-technical cooperation with foreign countries.

In 2009, a contract was signed for the development of documentation for the establishment of Goa (India) ground test and training facility equipped with runway-equip vaniem for naval aircraft. Completion of the construction, testing and commissioning of the complex carried out in late 2013.

Neva PKB fulfilled BDK project (large landing ship) 11711. The Nevsky Design Bureau, which specializes in designing aircraft carriers, amphibious ships, naval aeronautical equipment, and naval-aviation simulator equipment, was ready in 2015 to build a second Indian aircraft carrier. Located in St. Petersburg, the Bureau has been actively involved in designing Indias indigenous aircraft carrier, the Vikrant. A Mistral replacement was being designed by the Nevsky Design Bureau in St. Petersburg. Known as the Priboy-class helicopter carrier, the ship would be smaller than Lavina, displacing only 14,000 tons.

Office performed the conversion project TAVKR "Admiral Gorshkov" aircraft carrier for the Federal State Unitary Enterprise "Rosvooruzhenie". Plant-builder was determined OAO "PO" North-mashpredpriyatie (Severodvinsk). The ship commissioned in 2013 and successfully operated the Indian Navy. From the President of the Republic of India Bureau received gratitude.

The Neva Design Bureau is ready with plans to construct a second aircraft carrier for the Indian Navy. Nevas plans include either the design of the ship as a whole, or several of its individual components. Russia has received an offer to participate in the tendering process for such a ship, Sergei Vlasov, general director of the Neva Design Bureau, told RIA Novosti 18 December 2015.

The Design Bureau was actively involved in the building of the first national (built in India), Indian aircraft carrier, the Vikrant, which was launched on June 11, 2015. The Indian media earlier reported that the second national aircraft carrier, the Vishal, is likely to be a nuclear- powered vessel with a displacement of around 65,000 tons, and will be able to carry 50 aircraft.

Rosoboronexport said in 2015 that Russia would agree to participate in building a new aircraft carrier, if such an application does come from India. The Indian side is choosing partners to participate in the design of their new aircraft carrier. The Russian side has received a request to participate in the corresponding tender. Our company can offer everything; the entire ship as a whole and/or its component parts. We are very interested in co-operation with India, said Vlasov.
