The company's website reports that in August this year, the plant took part in the Russian military-technical forum “ARMY-2022” in the Moscow region. In particular, the company demonstrated mass-produced diesel engines and reduction gears for the Russian Navy, which are “widely used on ships and boats of various projects,” the report says. As part of the forum, Zvezda held a series of negotiations with representatives of shipbuilding enterprises and the Russian Navy.
