Expert Council of Maritime and River Fleet Federal Agency accepted designs of new generation salvage vessels for Russian State Sea Salvage Department


Meeting of Expert Council of Maritime and River Fleet Federal Agency of Russian Federation Ministry of Transport took place on the 17th of December, 2008. Head of Maritime and River Fleet Federal Agency Mr. Davydenko was a chairman of this meeting.
 
Expert Council learned results of new generation salvage vessels design for FSUC "Gosmorspasslyzba Rossii" as follows:
 
• seagoing multifunction 7 MWt diesel-electric MPSV06 prj. salvage vessel with ice-breaker functions for Artic Ocean and Far-East regions;
• seagoing multifunction 4 MWt diesel-electric MPSV07 prj. salvage vessel with high ice class for Black Sea, Azov Sea and Caspian Sea;
• seagoing diver SDS08 prj.vessel.
 
MPSV06, MPSV07 and SDS08 prjs. were designed due to custom of Maritime and River Fleet Federal Agency in accordance with Federal Program "Development of Russian Federation transport system in 2010-2015".
 
Designer is Marine Engineering Bureau.
 
Several men made statements at meeting, as follows: Anatoliy Paperniy (general director of FSUC "State Customer Management"), Andrey Khaustov (head of FSUC "Gosmorspasslyzba Rossii") and Gennadiy Egorov (general director of "Marine Engineering Bureau"). It was pointed that building of new salvage vessels is essential to state because at this moment there are 64 salvage vessels with mean age of 24 years.
 
36 from 64 vessels will be amortized till 2015. So building of 38 new vessels due to Federal Program is a minimum required for salvage ability keeping. It's necessary to mark that Russian Federation actually requires 135 salvage vessels due to opinion of "Gosmorspasslyzba Rossii" specialists (for information, there were 138 salvage vessels in USSR in 1989).
