The plant was founded in 1951.

In 50 years of its existence it produced: a series of sand-carriers, a diesel-electric dredger Chagoda, an oil barge NNMB-900, 17 sludge removal barges types DSH-450, 450M, 1 container ship and 2 hydroclap type opening systems.

The plant assembled 2 16-ton floating cranes, 5 unique floating pile drivers, a floating crane type Bleichert and other small vessels.

Moreover, the plant was constantly carrying out dockside and full repairs as well as maintenance works for various types of ships up to 70-80m long with up to 2,000 tons displacement (altogether around 1,500 ships were docked and repaired, but if we also count repairs at the wall of the plant, then the figure will be not less than additional 6,000 vessels)

  • Starting from 1960 the plant became the main supplier of anchor rods and hydraulic engineering systems for the sea and river ports of European part of the country and Western Siberia. The plant produced 60 tons of anchor rods, and due to that the Ministry of Transport Construction managed to build 80 km of berthing facilities.
  • Being the leading plant of the Main Sea and River Construction Agency it constantly received state orders, thus it successfully carried out a very significant order to produce a stock of forms for automatic lines for the production of reinforced concrete wagon-head tubes, which were used for the construction of Moscow underground. The plant also produced a stock of forms for wagon-head tubes for Baku underground and a stock of forms with diameter of 1,200 cylinder piles for the construction of berthing facilities in the Baltic States.
  • In 1963 the plant produced a unique facility – a hookup platform which enabled the functioning of the oil terminal.
  • The plant produced a stock of hydraulic drive-heads for bedding of cylinder piles 1,200m in diameter for the Baltic States, far eastern regions of Russia and the Black Sea. The plant also produces an experimental model of a hydraulic drive-heads to embed piling in batches, produced and gave to Novorossiysk an experimental sample of an underwater bottom leveler. Moreover, it supplied 1,200 tons of equipment to Finland for the Päijänne-Keitele Canal, produced 7 unique forms for the port of Pori and carried out many other deals and operations.
  • In 2000 it began to produce piles and tube piling for St.Petersburg Sea Commercial Port and Primorsk Oil Terminal.
  • A transshipment complex began to work on the plant in 1999 and stevedoring became one of the main lines of work.
