New USC President and His Future Plans

New USC President and His Future PlansLast Tuesday, a meeting was held at the presidential residence Bocharov Ruchei, the results of which can seriously affect the development of the entire Russian shipbuilding industry. The country's leadership decided to make some personnel changes, and also gave several instructions to the new authorities of the industry.

A few weeks ago, on May 6, the former president of the United Shipbuilding Corporation A. Dyachkov resigned, and the vice-president of the corporation V. Bindas was temporarily appointed to replace him. At a meeting on Tuesday, Russian President V. Putin called the name of the new USC President. The head of the corporation will be Vladimir Shmakov, who previously worked as the first deputy general director of Uralvagonzavod. In the near future, Shmakov’s candidacy will be approved by the board of directors of the corporation, and he will begin to fulfill his duties.

The new president immediately announced his plans for the near future: he intends to visit the leading enterprises of his industry, as well as plants of related industries in order to familiarize himself with the state of affairs in them. Shmakov believes that USC activities should be in line with the plans of the leading buyers of its products, which the management of the shipbuilding corporation will consult. In his work, Shmakov is going to apply the experience of crisis management obtained during the work at the previous place.

The first task for the new president of USC was the instruction of V. Putin, according to which the corporation should conduct an inspection of the programs for the re-equipment of shipbuilding enterprises within three months. According to the president, it is necessary to create a program for managing the costs of enterprises, as well as to audit all the contracts concluded. In addition, by the 1 of September, USC management will have to prepare and approve the development strategy of the shipbuilding industry, developed in accordance with the relevant state program.

The president called the mobilization of all resources and capabilities to accelerate the transfer of ships to customers, including the Ministry of Defense, as one of the main tasks for the new shipbuilding leadership. Since the re-equipment of the naval fleet significant amounts are allocated, then shipbuilding, according to Putin, should deliver the required equipment on time. At the same time, the quality and cost of products should completely suit the customer. As for the current problems with deadlines, etc., the president demanded a report with a description of all existing shortcomings and suggested ways to address them.

In addition to the construction of warships, USC is also involved in civil projects. According to the president, the increase in Russia's presence in the Arctic and other regions of the planet depends on this part of the work of the United Shipbuilding Corporation. It is necessary to develop projects of icebreakers, drilling platforms, etc. marine technology for various purposes. For effective work in this direction, USC must combine efforts with the main operators of the new special equipment. For this reason, Putin instructed the United Shipbuilding Corporation, Rosneft and Gazprom to establish contacts to develop a plan in accordance with which new civilian vessels will be created.

During the meeting, the new USC President, V. Shmakov, outlined the main features of the organization’s work in the near future. The first task of the corporation is to update the material part of the navy and maintain it in a combat-ready state. In addition, the corporation will carry out full maintenance of equipment during the entire period of its service. Shmakov considers the civil shipbuilding industry to be no less important, which will also receive increased attention. At the same time, the new president of USC noted that the construction and maintenance of an atomic icebreaking fleet could be considered as another important part of future work.

Shmakov will follow the progress of the project to create a new shipbuilding plant on the basis of the Far Eastern enterprise Zvezda. This industrial complex will become the largest industrial enterprise in the Far East. After commissioning of all production facilities (2020 year), Zvezda will be able to build civilian vessels of various classes with a displacement of up to 250 thousand tons. It is planned to build tankers, icebreakers, gas carriers, offshore platforms, etc. at the berths of the plant.

In addition to visiting shipyards and related enterprises, the new president of USC intends to take a number of administrative measures. It is necessary to create a set of measures to optimize the management of the corporation, to refine all the technological and administrative processes for the implementation of strategic tasks, as well as to increase executive discipline. To do this, it is necessary to conduct a full analysis of all cases and, based on its results, take appropriate measures. Shmakov believes that the future work on the removal of shipbuilding from the crisis will be similar to the processes that took place at Uralvagonzavod earlier. The tank-building enterprise has already passed the way from crisis management to stable operation and the same will happen with USC.

In the course of removing the corporation from the current decline, other personnel changes are possible. The new president of USC did not rule out that a careful examination of the state of the organization could be followed by dismissals and reshuffles. It is too early to say who exactly will lose their seats or get other positions, but already now Shmakov does not exclude the possibility of such decisions. Such rearrangements, if they will, will be included in the list of measures, the purpose of which will be to optimize the work of the management of the corporation and its member organizations.

Following the meeting with the president, an important statement was made by the Minister of Industry and Trade, D. Manturov. According to him, in order to prevent the meeting of deadlines under one or another contract, in the near future, USC will work on the new system. If the shipbuilding corporation cannot complete the order on time, a part of the subcontracted work will be transferred to foreign companies. The main work at the same time will remain the responsibility of the USC itself. Such an approach to speeding up the construction of ships will be one of the measures to take the United Shipbuilding Corporation out of the crisis.

The appointment of the former Deputy General Director of Uralvagonzavod as the head of the shipbuilding industry was a real surprise. Earlier, other candidates were proposed for this position, with most of these people related to the fleet or the shipbuilding industry. However, in the end, a specialist from another industry was put at the head of the USC. Probably, this choice was made taking into account the previous experience of V. Shmakov. The team, in which until recently the new president of USC worked, previously managed to pull the only Russian out of the crisis pit tank plant. Now he has to do this with another organization no less important for the country. Time and performance indicators will soon show whether the choice of the new head of the United Shipbuilding Corporation was right.

      I don't know how to react

      but the fact that dramatic changes are needed in the USC is already recognized at a high level, since the grandiose military construction program (shipbuilding) prescribed in the State Defense order is bursting at the seams and the blame for this lies with the former USC leadership (this is not the case with the Mistral) signed contracts to manage

      about 20 corvettes until 2020, as we were rubbed in 2004, it’s no longer worth talking about - they would be built!

      but the guys do not start by connecting Mr. Rogozin

      here is my post yesterday, in time for the appointment of the new head of USC

      Rustam Today, 03:56 ↑
      Serdyuchka say? And all sorts of Mistral

      What is it? Do USCs need to give more money? Or do contracts at real prices not suit them? or maybe it’s time for the leaders of the shipbuilding industry to optimize production, invest in new technologies as they do on the same Irkut and will cost be lower? Develop energy-saving technologies, automate production? Start finally paying a normal wage to workers

      And Rogozin, of course, defends the interests of the defense industry generals (it is necessary to cut the GOZ) - for them it’s not enough, the trouble is, what kind of contract is signed and big forfeits (thanks to Sukhorukov at the time), but the time is running out now, the trouble is somehow we used to build ships of 8-2 tons per year for 4 years, when in Europe and the United States such tonnage is lowered in 2-3 years

      Well, nothing, but the Mistral was a thorn in the eye, it was not possible to snatch that - we would build 21000 tons of 10 years, and we asked for more and more

      yes, regarding Mistral, everything will be fine there and in September there will be a launch of the first ship - you’re better comrade Rogozin, take a trip to the DCNS shipyard and take random people from USC with you at the same time grab a new guide, let them look and learn how to build ships

      PS- photo (clickable) - France DCNS shipyard (2013) the construction of the first ship of the Mistral class (Vladivostok) is in full swing

    most of these people related to the fleet or the shipbuilding industry

    Accordingly, they all knew each other well. And if we have positive relations between two or more people, they will inevitably be transferred to all spheres of life. How these positive personal relationships affected the work of the USC is a controversial issue, but, in my opinion, not entirely optimal. Let's hope that our Soviet tankers will win this undercover battle

    It looks like a direct consequence of Shoigu's appointment. Began to understand for the present. It turns out that there are only a few "state people"? There is no Stolypin's scale at all, those who could try to reform the economy in real, and not by creating "Potemkin villages" like Skolkovo.

    And what about Rogozin? All the problems started long before he arrived. He simply started kicking them, bringing them to a heart attack (Dyachkova) and openly calling things by their proper names. When Rogozin stole a half of the lard in the NEA, or he destroyed the shipyards, which is why we are now unable to quickly build including Mistral. Moreover, large ships in the USSR were always built by the Nikolaev factory, and this is now Ukraine. I do not defend it, but objectivity must be present.

      And what about Rogozin? bring to a heart attack (Dyachkova)

      1-Rogozin, and what does he have to do with it, why does he need such a handsome one? Does he not cope with his task, what are the tasks of the deputy prime minister in charge of the military-industrial complex? Debug the mechanism and exercise tight control, introduce ideas, etc.

      what did he promise to hear everything from Medvedev? I’ll beat the unscrupulous leaders of the military-industrial complex - I can’t see it right now - asks me to review contracts with the Russian Defense Ministry

      2-Dyachkova brought to a heart attack? who brought that? when Shoigu publicly dismissed the representatives of the USC for the failure of the contracts, when the former deputy Sukhorukov dragged around the courts and poked a finger for the failure of the contracts, Rogozin was silent (but didn’t say that the lubricant for the Mistral was in the wrong system) where was he?
      when the wave went from above, oh, he saw that the USC was throwing everything and everyone

      ps- THERE IS AN EXCEPTIONAL VIDEO FOR APPOINTMENT - Rogozin’s appointment as curator of the military-industrial complex - 2m 15 sec -I will cut down the encroachments on corruption in the military-industrial complex with an iron hand - OH WELL

    so, apparently Putin got American ridicule over the Mediterranean fleet, just empty movements can not get off, so I decided to move the cart off the ground.

    In the course of removing the corporation from the current decline, other personnel changes are possible. The new president of USC did not rule out that after a careful study of the state of the organization, layoffs and permutations may follow.

    LANDING AND SHOTS are also necessary, regardless of proximity to the family, the Kremlin or the kagal.

    the only Russian tank factory was pulled out of the crisis pit.

    the tank factory in Russia was NOT the only one, why say so?

      tank factory in Russia was not the only one, why say so

      First, they destroyed the OSMSKTRANSMASH (turning it into an appendage of the Uralvagonzavod and losing production of 80 currents forever) -Naturally, the Uralvagonzavod became a monopolist and puts a price tag on whatever it wants

    When will the ladies leave?
    Shmakov is an experienced production worker, his appointment as the head of a huge farm is logical. Prior to UVZ, he worked for a long time at MMK, where he started as a worker.
    Nobody thinks that a candidate of legal science is needed at USC. But why the prime minister, where leadership experience is even more necessary, is a lawyer? Yes, with a train of nonsense: Libya, the police and the police, awarding Gorbachev, gifts from Norway to the maritime territory, etc., etc. The guy’s authority has already become an imaginary value; Putin clearly already bites his elbows, chose ours and his head.

    In the United States, there is also the only tank factory in Germany and France, it’s just such a time now, it’s impossible to maintain several plants and there’s nothing to do with it. Especially tanks with a gas turbine plant. With all its advantages, the cons outweigh.

    In the USC everything can be built by the Indians on "one-two-three", the Vietnamese submarines, but we cannot build "boats" with a displacement of 2000 tons

      You ask where the Indians and Vietnamese are building,
      and where are the "boats". You will immediately understand that there are normal, well-functioning production facilities, and there are "effective" ones where it is necessary to establish order.

    You are optimists .... The usual manager ... The Uralvagonzavod had orders in the troubled 90s, and therefore it survived ... what does this Shmakov have to do with it? The current government has no personnel reserve ... If they appoint someone somewhere .... not for the purpose of positive changes, but for other purposes - to cut, take control of financial flows, transfer them to another offshore, etc. .d. Nothing will change. Changes require completely different frames, with a different psychology.

      In the 90th Uralvagonzavod would bankrupt-inadvertently sing military songs

      He survived thanks to the Indian contract, along with the bureaucrats destroying Omsktransmash along the way

      The star in the 90th was the T-80u

      But the personnel are really needed, but where can I get them? Few people have a sense of patriotism and responsibility

Leading engineers are now working in commercial structures and behind the barn, they will not go to work for handouts and they do the right thing because the state where mediocrity is earning more than the "giants of science" earn there is a shalman and a circus
