Azovo-Chernomorsky Basin Branch fleet replenishment

Pursuant to t order issued by FSUE “Rosmorport” the Rabochaya mud boat with the hold volume of 840 cubic meters has been given to the FSUE “Rosmorport” Azovo-Chernomorsky Basin Branch.

Earlier, the mud boat was used by the North-Western Basin Branch.

The mud boat is designed for transporting soil to an unloading place while carrying out dredging operations as part of dredging convoys with a mechanical and pipeline dredge. This is a one-mast vessel with a module aft superstructure. Two main engines are deployed on the open deck in the stern of ship in protective covers that will help operatively service them and replace aggregate modules. Two pod drives with a possibility to regulate a propeller’s penetration are placed outside the hull and makes it possible to raise the propeller from the water for maintenance and repair afloat without docking the vessel.

The vessel became the ninth vessel of the Azovo-Chernomorsky Basin Branch dredging fleet and the 55th vessel of the branch’s fleet.

The Azovo-Chernomorsky Basin Branch is planning to use the mud boat jointly with the Redut non-propelled single scoop-bucket dredger to carry out dredging operations in the water areas of the seaports of Kavkaz and Temryuk.

More information on the conditions and procedure for rendering services by the Azovo-Chernomorsky Basin Branch in the seaports of Kavkaz and Temryuk, as well as in the seaports of Eysk, Novorossiysk, Sochi, Taman and Tuapse can be available in the section “Azovo-Chernomorsky Basin Branch Branch Dredging Services”.
