On October 15-17, 2019 the Delegation of the Shipbuilding
Cluster of Nizhny Novgorod region visited the Azerbaijan
State Marine Academy (Baku).
It was decided to organize a trip for representatives of "deck"
and "electric" directions, as well as companies produce such
types of vessels as little known to Azerbaijani colleagues
and to future shipbuilding engineers.
Companies in the delegation and topics of presentations:
Fleet - line of hovercraft vessels.
SeaTech - sea hydrofoils,
design technologies, philosophy and principles of work
performance with equipment manufacturers.
Ship Building Ship Repair - design, manufacture,
delivery and maintenance of deck, lifting and crane
VID - the concept of power supply of the ship, the
integrator of all components on sections of the electrician,
navigation, communication, automatics. The final product of
the integrator is a working system based on its own main
switchboards, other electrical distribution devices, and a
boatmaster's control panel. The level of modernity and
complexity of the tasks to be solved was demonstrated on the
basis of unique technical solutions of the power supply
system and control of the ship power plant of the Neptune
floating dock (proj. 28140)
broadcast system, installation and
adjustment of wheelhouse equipment and the EcoRadar oil
spill control and detection system, which is relevant for
the Caspian Sea.
SV Sphere - achievements in the field of ship
automation on the basis of successfully operating systems
of the Neptune floating dock. The
hardware and software protection technologies for the dock
during the entire docking cycle, starting from the vessel
entering the floating dock and setting it on keel blocks,
including the operations of submersing, rise and removing
the vessel from the dock, have proven their reliability and
effectiveness over 5 years of operation.
MRS Electronics - presentation of the whole range of
the company's products. Particular interest was aroused by
developments in the field of fire protection.
SudoSvet – marine lighting manufacturing. The company
received a proposal for the supply of lighting equipment for
tankers and ferries under construction in Azerbaijan.
The focal point of the presentations was to demonstrate the
principle that suppliers and manufacturers of equipment,
participating in the design engineering process,
significantly reduce the time and improve the quality of

Guests who came to Baku to discuss cooperation with the
Azerbaijan Caspian Shipping Company made interesting
presentations for teachers and students of the Academy
specializing in ship design.
Petr Ezhov, CEO of Sea Tech Ltd, in his detailed
report gave exposure to the history of cooperation with
Azerbaijani partners, noting that Sea Tech actively
participated in the development of the floating dock "Neptune"
for the ASCO.
At present, for the development of various projects with
the Caspian Research Institute of Shipping, strong working
partnership has been established. Foundation of a new
training laboratory of CADMATIC software in ADDA for modern
design engineering system is a good example of such
It was reported that the enterprises and manufactures of
the Shipbuilding Cluster of the Nizhny Novgorod Region
produce 60% of the Russian shipbuilding products. In
accordance with nowaday trends, the direct participation of
manufacturing companies in the design of ships and the
supply of project-compatible equipment for the shipyard will
speed up the construction process as a whole and reduce the
cost of the vessel.
The presentations of heads of companies specializing in
this field of shipbuilding were of special interest for
students. Guests answered numerous questions and expressed
satisfaction from communication with young specialists.
In the course of the meeting with the Academy’s
management were also raised more topics, such as: - development of modern education guidance, stands,
simulators and exerciser; prospects of cooperation between the Marine Academy and
Nizhny Novgorod State Technical University and VGUWT, which
is also a member of the shipbuilding cluster.
At the end of the visit to Baku, the specialists of the
Russian Federation and Azerbaijan held a practical seminar
and analyzed the technology of joint work on the example of
the CADMATIC Marine Solution system, which is approved
standard CAD in Azerbaijan.
We profoundly thank the management and administrative
office of the Nizhny Novgorod Shipbuilding Cluster for their
