Designed vessel hull' life term is of 24 years.
The ship steel of categories RSA and RSD with a yield limit of 235 MPa was accepted for basic hull constructions.
The double bottom is designed for distributed load intensity of 7.5 t/m² that allows to use a bucket grab with cargo-lifting capacity 16 tons.
Autonomy in sea is of 20 days, in river it is of 15 days.
Vessel's keel was laid down on 20.04.07. She was launched on 07.12.07 and delivered on 15.08.08.
