On July 21, 2020 the seaport of Vladivostok hosted a solemn ceremony of raising the National Flag of the Russian Federation and consecration of the new Askold, Emar, Sukhodol and Truzhenik tugboats, which became the part of the company fleet in the Far East.
This event was attended by the management of the FSUE "Rosmorport" Far Eastern basin branch and Vanino branch as well as representatives of FSBI "Seaport Administration of Primorsky Region and Eastern Arctic", employees of the Far Eastern Directorate of Gosmornadzor of Rostransnadzor, the Far Eastern branch of the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping and employees of stevedoring companies.
Director of the Far Eastern Basin Branch Viktor Vanyukov commanded to raise flags on tugboats, and then the Russian flags, accompanied by the National Anthem of the Russian Federation, performed by the orchestra of Moscow State University named after G.I. Nevelsky, rose over the tugboats.
In the final part of the ceremony, after welcoming words and congratulations of the participants of the event, Father Dionysius blessed the crews of the new vessels and the tugboats for accident-free successful work, long service and performed the Orthodox rite of consecration of each vessel.
The new tugboats, built at the request of FSUE "Rosmorport", arrived at the seaport of Vladivostok on June 07, 2020 and now have passed all acceptance tests and the procedure for issuing the necessary permitting documents.
The Far Eastern basin branch plans to use Askold, Emar and Sukhodol tugboats in the seaports of Primorsky Region, primarily in the seaport of Vladivostok and, in particular, in the water area of the "Port Vera" maritime terminal.
The Truzhenik tugboat, which was transferred to the Vanino branch of the company, will be temporarily relocated to the seaport of Sabetta, where it will operate until November 2022 in the waters of the "Utreniy" marine terminal (section No. 2 of the Sabetta seaport).
