Machine-building complex - one of leading spheres of industrial production of area in which 30% of the industrial enterprises of area and about a half industrially - the production personnel are concentrated. On a contribution to the volume of the realized industrial output in 2007 - 2,1 billion UAH - producers of machine-building production took the third place (17,7%) among types of industrial activity of area.
Technical potential of mechanicians quite high - they use over 13% of industrial fixed assets of area.
The Nikolaev mechanicians over 160 types of various production, among which vessel technical, gas turbines, electric transformers and condensers, conveyors and elevators, universal electric motors, filters for the internal combustion engines, the centralized systems of greasing, the car and devices for an arc svarivaniye of metals, cars for agriculture, and also cars of a special purpose, fans, installations for air conditioning, household appliances, etc.are issued
Specific weight of the Nikolaev area in volumes of realization of machine-building production of Ukraine makes 2,1%. In too time, in production of separate types of production it is much higher. In particular, in area more than 22% of washing machines, 30% - single-phase electric motors of alternating current, 50% - cargo and passenger vessels, 74% - gas turbines, etc.are developed
The enterprises of a machine-building complex surely increase outputs - in 2007 in comparison with 2000 they increased by 2,3 times.
The leader of mechanical engineering is the state enterprise scientifically - industrial complex of gas-turbine construction "Dawn" - "Mashproyekt". Besides, in area such powerful joint-stock companies, plant "Fregat", "Pervomayskdizelmash", "Ekvator", "Nikolayevsky zavod smazochnogo i filtruyushchego oborudovaniya", "Konveyermash" and others work.
The card of the industry of Nikolayevshchina is the shipbuilding. Shipyards of shipbuilding plants of area of JSC Damen Shipyards Okean, the state enterprise shipbuilding plant of 61 Communard, GAHK "Black Sea Shipbuilding Plant", to JSC Shipbuilding Plant Liman are intended for строител
