SHIPBUILDING AND SHIPREPAIR
“Bulgarian National Association of Shipbuilding and Shiprepair” (BULNAS) was established at 28 April 2009 as a voluntary non - profit association in private support created in aims to support, encouragement, representation and protection of the interests of it’s members.
At the present moment the members of BULNAS are 29, including all shipbuilding and ship repair yards in the country, companies involved in shipbuilding and shipreparing related activities, designers, classification and scientific organizations, universities. The total number of the directly employed workers and employees of the BULNAS members are 5 300 people, and indirect employment to which members of BULNAS provide job – another 5 000 people.
On 28th of May 2009 “Bulgarian National Association of Shipbuilding and Shiprepair” become a member of CESA - “Community of European Shipyards’ Associations”, currently representing 99% of the EU shipbuilding production and more than 80% of the production of geographical Europe.
Considering the LeaderSHIP 2015 initiative and 11 September 2009 Bremerhaven High level meeting, and its conclusions, BULNAS has supported two regional initiatives :
1. Creation of National fund for financing of the shipbuilding, for access to financing for feasible project. The initiative is a joint action between BULNAS and BSA (Bulgarian Ship - owners Association).
2. Cooperation between Bulgaria and Russia for participation in Russian Shipbuilding program, supported by Mr. Putin for construciton of 1 400 ships until 2020.

The renovation and the application of new production technologies, specialized software and the European standards helped ours members to impose their positions on the local, as well as the international market. We can consider that the Bulgarian shipbuilding and shiprepair industry has resources and capacity to work in many directions and can be briefly formed the next product portfolio:
- shipbuilding and shiprepairing yards, members of BULNAS, have the capacityto design, construct and repair of ships up to 100 000DWT;
-members of Association have proven experience not only in design, construction and repairing of tankers, bulk carriers, product carriers; container carriers, multipurpose/general cargo vessels, but also of patrol ships, tugs, fishing vessels, river vessels, ships sailing mixed, self and non-self-propelled barges, passenger ships, yachts, floating facilities on ferroconcrete hulls etc. ;
- manufacturers of ship equipment and companies involved in shipbuilding and shipreparing related activities, members of BULNAS, have proven experience in the field of marine and industrial machine - building; complete design, manufacture, supply and installation of full el. equipment: main and emergency switchboards, navigation desks and panels for control and signaling, starters, radio navigation and automation; production of electric motors, machinery; design, manufacture, supply and service of hatch covers (folding, pontoon, sliding, etc.); design, manufacture and service of ship equipment, deck machinery etc.;
- the scientific organizationsmembers of Association have proven experience in the implementation of fundamental and appliedresearches; numerical modeling and analysis in the field of ship hydrodynamics and aerodynamics;
- the designers organizationsmembers of BULNAS have proven experience in marine and offshoreBULGARIAN NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF SHIPBUILDING AND SHIPREPAIR
design, and in development of: preliminary project investigations, studies and analyses; technical, detailed and production designs; adapting and develop further existing designs for building of ships under specific conditions of the shipyards, as simultaneously the project documentation is developed by the specialized software programs: FORAN V50; Auto Cad; Tribon; Nupa etc;
- following the goals and moral values, laid down in their Code of Ethics, classification societies – members of Association are dedicated theirs activities to ensuring the safety of life and property at sea, and the prevention of pollution of the marine environment.
Unfortunately, said here can not fully to reveal and present the possibilities to yards, manufacturers, societies and organizations members of BULNAS (detailed information you can find on the website of each member), can not be done and a short briefly summary, but no body can hide or deny the fact that a large part of thus represented factories and organizations have over 35 - 40 years experience and established traditions in shipbuilding and ship repairing industry. Independently the long and difficult period of the transition, privatization transactions and bankruptcy the Bulgarian shipbuilding and ship repair industry is not only managed to "survive" and has preserve but also developed and asserted itself as a stable branch, placing Bulgaria among the industrially developed countries.
