(Sergey Chemezov, CEO of Rostec State Corporation - About production of hydrofoils )
- Production of hydrofoils has been resumed after a period of over 20 years. It is a milestone event for domestic shipbuilding and a major step torwards strengthening the tourism appeal of Crimea: first Kometas will link two cities on the peninsula – Sevastopol and Yalta. And that is just the beginning as hydrofoils have always been an important component of our country’s transport system. The Soviet Union was a global leader in production of this type of transport which was also built for export. The revival of this manufacture offers great prospects. New Kometas will certainly be in demand, both in the domestic and foreign markets.
