|For over 10 years already the JSC “Leningrade shipbuilding wharf “Pella” has been occupying leading positions on the Russian tug building market. European and Russian ship owners are attracted by the company’s long lasting reputation as that of an obligation-bound and responsible partner. All of the wharf-build vessels are being released in severe accordance with the agreed terms.||
The tugs by “Pella” are vessels of new generation, successfully operating in all major Russian harbours. High quality and contemporary technical equipment of overall production were appreciated also by customers from Europe, who are rewarding “Pella” with growing orders’ volumes. The orders’ portfolio for the years to come envisages yearly production output in volumes not lower than 3 billion roubles and a yearly release of 12-14 units of maritime equipment. “Pella” is also widely reputed as a wharf, offering tugs delivery in very tight deadlines: the period from contract signing to production release doesn’t exceed 12-13 months.
The company acquired its present name in 1996. Nowadays “Pella” offers batch production of a whole array of highly manoeverable new generation tugs with horsepower ratings ranging from 1500 to 5000 h.p., that are operating in all major harbours of Russia and CIS countries, such as Novorossiysk, Saint-Petersburg, Primorsk, Ust’-Luga, Nakhodka, Temryuk, Kaliningrade, Vanino, Murmansk, Makhachkala, as well as harbors of the Baltic states, Scandinavia (Norway) and Italy.
Tugs are irreplaceable components of every harbour. They ensure escorting, towing of heavy tonnage vessels, their safe sail and berthing. They are fully automatized, highly manoeverable and economizing, azimuth thruster vessels of projects 90600, 166009, Rascal 2000 and the escorting tug PE-65, equipped with technology from leading world manufacturers - Caterpillar, Cummins, Rolls-Royce, Desmi, Furuno, Heinen&Hopman and others.The enumerated tugs, alongside obligatory working operations, are able to combat fire on external objects and to remove oil spills.

JSC “Pella” is also building modern pilot boats, destined for piloting support of big ships on maritime communications, and hydrographic ships.
In 2011 it is thought to propose two new projects. The first – a multi-task rescue tug PS-45 of unlimited operational space, able to perform several tasks: approvisioning of floating objects with material and equipment, personal and cargo transportation to remote marine objects, rescue operations, life and help assistance to drowning ships, search, saving, evacuation and displacement of people, medical help; high-seas towing of ships, floating objects and facilities in icy and and free waters, fire extinguishment on coastal and floating objects, battling burning surface fuel fires; executing of underseas operations – in a word, a multi-task rescue tug.
