Far Eastern Basin Branch News

Far-Eastern Branch Fleet Replenished

On 8 March 2015 the Fredensborg ship delivered two ice class workboats – Sergey Cherednichenko and Nord to Vladivostok Seaport. The boats were constructed in 2014 at a Russian shipyard by order of FSUE “Rosmorport”.

Among the advantages of that type of boats is increasing speed that enables to reduce pilot delivery time, up-to-date navigation equipment that can work in any weather conditions, and ice class, which lets the boats work in slob ice.

The Far-Eastern Basin Branch is going to use the Sergey Cherednichenko boat in Vladivostok Seaport and the Nord boat in Vostochny Seaport for:
- delivery of state committees and crews to vessels;
- inspection and ecological monitoring of the seaports;
- delivery of the branch pilots to/from vessels for pilotage services;
- other auxiliary purposes.
For information:

The two boats of project ST23WI were built by JSC Okskaya Shipyard (Navashino town, Russia) in 2014.

The Sergey Cherednichenko boat was named after Sergey Vasilyevich Cherednichenko, ex-chief of Marine Administration of Vladivostok Seaport, a Sidtinguished Transport Worker of Russian Federation.
