Russia’s Shipbuilding-Ship Repair Corporation has launched the non-self-propelled cutter suction dredger (CSD) Vladimir Panchenko.
Designed by Rostov Central Design Bureau, the 1,000 cubic metres per hour dredger is being built at Gorodets in the Nizhny Novgorod region for FSI Rechvodput.
Once complete, Vladimir Panchenko will be handed over to Lena Basin for operation in Arctic rivers.
The CSD, which can be used for dredging between one metre and 10 metres, will be used for sand, muddy and gravel soils, canal dredging works, land reclamation and dike construction.
