State Enterprise “Production Association Pivdenny Machine-Building Plant named after O. M. Makarov” (Dnipro) initiates the construction of a floating platform for launching rockets in Ukraine.

"Ukraine does not have its own spaceport, although the Pivdenny Machine-Building Plant specializes in rocket construction and carries out foreign economic activity with 23 countries, including the European ones. It’s about time to have our own spaceport for launching rockets, and it is possible to build it in Kherson region," Director General of the State Enterprise “Production Association Pivdenny Machine-Building Plant named after O. M. Makarov” Serhiy Voyt said in a commentary to an Ukrinform correspondent.

He said that he had recently spoken with the staff of the Kherson State Plant "Palada", which produces floating structures (docks). There are ready for cooperation and partnership.

"Our engineers have been looking for options, considering a lot of issues. Everything needs to be taken into account because some countries stand against launching rockets over their territory. We and the State Concern “Ukrboronprom” decided to build such a platform at the Kherson enterprise ‘Palada’," the director general explained.
