Design Bureau Sevmash (DB Sevmash) provides engineering support of design and as-built documentation for all products manufactured by JSC PO Sevmash. The Design Bureau prepares documents for products and facilities of ship building, machine building and fuel and energy sector.


The Design Bureau was founded on September 22nd, 1940. Shipbuilding has been its priority orientation over 70 years. Our specialists have provided engineering support during the construction of all head and serial nuclear submarines built by JSC PO Sevmash.


As a part of its production facilities was re-oriented to produce engineering products and surface ships for military and civil purposes, including products based on military-technical cooperation, it resulted in a required substantial expansion of the range of problems solved by the Design Bureau.


At present main activities of the Design Bureau are as follows:

- engineering support for construction, repair and modernization of nuclear submarines;

- engineering support for diesel submarine construction;

- preparing documentation and engineering support for repair and re-equipping of aircraft-carrying heavy cruisers;

- preparing documentation and engineering support for construction of civil vessels;

- preparing documentation and engineering support for construction of oil producing platforms;

- engineering support for construction of transport packages for spent nuclear fuel transportation and storage;

- design of equipment for energy sector enterprises, steel mills, stationary nuclear power plants;

- engineering support of nuclear submarine recycling;

- design of marine journal bearings;

- design of acoustic protection means;

- design of ship furniture;

- design of benches and accessories for vibroacoustic and vibromechanic tests of engineering products;

- tests of engineering products to meet the requirements of vibroacoustic and vibromechanic  parameters;

- stabilizing low-frequency vibration treatment of metal structures.


DB Sevmash is a steadily growing design company that uses a significant experience gained both in the construction of nuclear and diesel submarines, surface warships and the experience gained during the construction of civil ships, including those for foreign customers.

Since the early 90s of the last century up-to-date methods of computer design are intensively integrated into DB Sevmash's works, including three-dimensional modeling. Its own computer-aided design (CAD) Breeze is created that is a complete design tool for all divisions of the Design Bureau. This allows the shipyard to use e-documents to prepare control programs for CNC machines in hull preparation and pipe shops.


Since 2004 the Bureau has used purchased Foran CAD. A number of projects were developed using the system: chemical tanker, semi-submersible platform, floating nuclear power plant and others.


Qualification of our designers allows them to work with design documents issued according to foreign standards. A number of our projects have been carried out according to the regulations of English and German Lloyd and DNV.


Design Bureau’s structure is standard for shipbuilding and consists of the following divisions:

- general designing;

- hull structures and facilities;

- propulsion machinery and ship's service systems;

- electric equipment and automation;

- mechanic engineering;

- CAD and technical documentation management;

- Department of Economics and Project Management.


DB Sevmash also includes:

- civil and industrial construction department;

- complex of bench-top vibroacoustic and vibromechanic tests.

Complex of Vibroacoustic and Vibromechanic Bench Tests is intended for test of engineering products for compliance with current requirements for vibronoise and vibromechanic. The complex is constructed as a result of complete improvement of bench test base of JSC PO Sevmash implemented under technical and scientific and engineering supervision of Design Bureau. At the complex tests are performed by testing engineers of Design Bureau having passed special training.

The unified bench included into the test complex has been designed by DB in association with Malachite Saint Petersburg Marine Bureau of Machine-Building, JSC with scientific and technical support of Krylov Shipbuilding Research Institute, FSUE. The bench was put into operation in 2006. The bench meets requirements of МПСКШ-87, МКШС-81, МКИВС-95А, ВМУ 0603.5-29 procedures specified to the test benches by proper flow noise and vibronoise characteristics, and certified to test wide range of products of hydraulic equipment, valves and large-sized engineering products. The bench distinctive feature is a high capacity allowing test of hundreds of products per year, providing integrity of construction cycle for primary production orders. At present this bench doesn’t have analogues in Russia.
