The ceremonial launching of two boom-laying boats for oil spill recovery has been held at Yaroslavsky shipbuilding plant in Russia.
The Yaroslavl Region Government said the Project А40 boats ordered by Transneft Kama Region would operate in emergency situations.
Intended for transportation and installation of boom guards in sea coastal search-and-rescue areas, the vessels would also be used to contain the spread of spilled oil products, to liquidate oil spills, to collect the spilled oil products into floating containers and towing to the reception points of shore or floating stations.
It will be the fourth Project A-40 vessel built at the shipyard and delivered to the far east region of Russia.
