Construction on the ninth and 10th rails of the slipway at Nibulon Shipbuilding and Repair Yard has been completed, enabling it to launch and service 100-metre-long vessels.
About 10,000 tonnes of stones and gravel were used for the work at the Mykolaiv–based Ukrainian shipyard, which included constructing the tug-shaped control room, laying six kilometres of cabling and reinforcing the 56- by 25-by two-metre launch tracks and concrete rails.
When the slipway is complete, the shipyard will be able to launch 140-metre vessels, such as the self-propelled P-140 project cargo vessel with two cranes, 10,000-tonne cargo capacity.
The P-140 vessel is scheduled for launch on July 1, 2019.
