RS whishes a happy New Year to business partners and colleagues

Respected colleagues, dear friends,

This arduous but eventful and fruitful year is nearly over: it has brought us a number of really innovative projects, the contribution of which to the development of marine industry has been recognized all over the word. Thus, Shturman Albanov, a lead ship of a series of Arctic shuttle tankers, was awarded by an international industry prize Marine Propulsion Awards in the Ship of the Year nomination; Christophe de Margerie, a lead ship of a series of Arctic LNG gas carriers, became a laureate of a prestigious Platts Global Energy Award in the Engineering project of the year nomination. Heavy-duty universal nuclear icebreakers, multifunctional icebreaking supply vessels for oil and gas production platforms, modern fishing vessels and other types of ships are currently under construction.

Such challenging and ambitious projects may be realized only through joint competence and coordinated actions of all the participants of the process designers, scientific centers, manufacturers of materials and ship equipment, shipyards, shipping companies and the classification society.

The New Year is a starting point where new plans are made and new projects are commenced. We heartily thank all the RS customers and business partners for effective collaborative effort. In the coming year we hope to continue our productive cooperation, jointly contributing to the promotion of innovative technologies in shipbuilding and shipping.

On behalf of Russian Maritime Register of Shipping I send all of you my New Year greetings and wish you joy, good health, prosperity and new professional achievements! Let the year 2018 be the year of active professional development and its results become the basis for the rapid advancement of the industry.
