Russia’s Onezhsky Shipbuilding has completed and delivered two hybrid multi-purpose workboats in a series ordered by local operator Rosmorport.

Anatoliy Klimov (pictured) and Viktor Vorotylo are the first and second vessels, respectively, to be built by Onezhsky under Project ST23WIM-H.

The vessels will be capable of performing ship escort, pilotage, pollution monitoring, crew transfer, and search and rescue (SAR) in temperatures as low as -20 degrees Celsius.

The newbuilds each have an LOA of 25.7 metres, a beam of 6.8 metres, a design draught of 1.8 metres, and a diesel-electric propulsion system that delivers a speed of 12 knots. Onboard accommodations are for two crew and 10 passengers.
