Replenishment of the Fleet of the North-Western Basin Branch
After successful passing of mooring and sea trials, the new hydrographic boat “Luchisty” built in April 2017 was transferred to the North-Western Basin Branch.
This vessel is the third boat of the 1100 project which was built at the Astron-Marine LLC Shipyard (St. Petersburg, Russia) by request of the Branch.
The hydrographic boat “Luchisty” became the 10th vessel of the navigational support operated by the North-Western Basin Branch, and the 60th vessel of the entire fleet of the branch.
Onboard the vessel, modern electric and electronic aids to navigation are installed, as well as a multibeam echosounder, with which bottom measurements will be performed in the waters of the Seaport of Big Port Saint-Petersburg. The hydrographic boat has good maneuverability and slight draft, which makes it possible to shoot the bottom relief in shallow water. The vessel’s construction provides a mine in the vessel’s hull where the echosounder is installed, which allows to quickly perform the lifting/lowering of this surveying equipment when moving to another area of work, and also excludes its damage during mooring and ice conditions.
At present, the North-Western Basin Branch is preparing a set of documents for obtaining a classification certificate for the vessel.
It is expected that after receiving the necessary permits, the vessel will directly proceed to hydrographic work in the Seaport of Big Port Saint-Petersburg in September 2017.
The vessel got its name from the characteristics of the main hardware of the vessel - the multibeam echosounder, with the help of which a qualitative survey of the bottom relief is carried out.
