Nevertheless, despite some difficulties of the past period, having our experience as example we saw for ourselves that up-to-date design techniques allow carrying out a project of high quality with low time consumption and a reliable customer feedback. Such advantages mean winning competitions and solid activity in the end.”
“The Almaz design bureau was one of the first to start using modern methods of vessel design in Russia”, noted Eugeny Fedotov. “By now the Company remains “in the forefront” in their fields. We are convinced that AVEVA technologies, Almaz personnel expertise and AVEVA support will allow the bureau to attain its goals and expand its competitive advantages.”
