This became possible due to the implementation of the investment project, which provides for the modernization of production. The essence of the investment project was the creation and implementation of a unique ship construction technology based on innovative material not previously used in the Russian shipbuilding – high-density polyethylene. The total cost of creating a unique shipbuilding production amounted to more than 45 million rubles.
Today, the plant's production facilities allow repairing of up to 80 vessels per year and build up to four vessels.

— One of the keys to the successful development of the industrial complex of our city is the fact that even the oldest enterprises of the Don capital are betting on the modernization of production and technical re-equipment. It is important that the boats that are produced at the RIF plant are made of innovative material. There is no doubt that the task set at your production – promotion in the domestic market of products will be successfully implemented. After all, if serial production is set up in production, it means that there is an order, which means that the RIF’s boats are in demand.
