Russia’s Onezhsky Shipbuilding has completed sea trials of ‘Krutoyar’, an ice-class buoy tender.
The acceptance commission verified the operating condition of onboard equipment as well as performance features, operation of automation, navigation and communication devices.
Once minor “deficiencies” are corrected the ship will be handed over to the North-West Basin Branch of FSUE Rosmorport.
The ice-class vessel was launched on April 27, 2016. ‘Krutoyar’ is the first in a series of two buoy tenders being built at Onezhsky Shipyard for the Rosmorport. The vessels have an overall length of 22.2 metres, a beam of 6.6 metres and a draught of approximately 1.5 metres.
The pair are expected to reach a speed of 10 knots and can carry a crew of two plus five specialist personnel on board.
The vessel project was developed by the design bureau of Marine Technics.
