Nevskiy shipyard put into operation pleasure craft for VIP passengers of PV02 project
On July 1, 2010 Nevskiy shipyard (Schliselburg, Leningrad district Vladimir Bazhenov is a general director) put into operation pleasure craft for VIP passengers of PV02 project after successfully completed running test.
North-West Shipping Company is a customer.
The PV02 project was designed by the Marine Engineering Bureau.
PV02 prj. vessel was designed as modern reply for vessels of "OM" type in accordance with customer desire.
Vessel showed good propulsion qualities and controllability with wave height of 1 m during running test that was held on June 23.
Cruising speed during running test was of 10.9 kn with 1900 rpm of crankshaft (maximum is of 2100 rpm).
Maximum list during turn with full speed is of 8 degrees, vessel's stability satisfies all the requirements of classification society.
PV02 prj. craft is assigned for pleasure voyages through Russian inland waterways including Ladoga and Onega Lakes also through Gulf of Finland (Baltic Sea) with 10 VIP passengers onboard.
The vessel can be operated at sea roughness with wave height no more than 2.5 m with 3% probability.
Design temperature of outdoor air is of +30°C with humidity of 65% in summer and -23°C in winter with humidity of 85%, the water temperature is from +20°C down to 0°C correspondingly.
Vessel is steel, double screw motor ship, with a raked stem and cruiser aft end.
Main engines are located amidship. Passenger cabins are located fore and crew living quarters are located aft.
Vessel's air draught allows to sail under undrawn bridges of St.Petersburg.

Two opened fixed-pitch propellers (propulsion device) are cast steel, with 3 blades, with diameter of 1.0 m, with pitch ratio of 1.09 and blade-area ratio of 0.40.
Cruising speed with draught (summer freeboard ) of 1.76 m and 90% MDC is of 10.9 kn.
Fuel stores are placed in tanks in area of the ER.
Two diesel generators (auxiliary power plant) are of 80 kWt each, located in the ER.
