Commander of the Northern Fleet, Hero of Russia, Admiral Alexander Moiseev, congratulated the Department of Search and Rescue Operations on the centennial anniversary. He noted that “the rescuers of the Northern Fleet ensure the safety of sailors when performing various tasks at sea and are ready to provide assistance at sea to anyone who may need it.” The Fleet Commander wished the rescuers strong naval health and success in their professional activities.

For reference: As part of the Northern Fleet’s search and rescue department, headed by Captain 1st Rank Vladimir Gorban, there are two rescue teams. One of them, the location of which was the main base of the Northern Fleet Severomorsk, includes two groups of rescue vessels and an emergency rescue party. Another detachment solves tasks as part of the White Sea naval base of the Northern Fleet.

In addition to search and rescue support during long-distance ocean voyages of the ships of the fleet, the rescue forces of the Northern Fleet successfully solve the tasks of towing large-tonnage surface ships and submarines to the repair sites, and on an ongoing basis perform underwater technical and ship-lifting operations at depths of up to 60 meters. regularly conduct exercises to rescue personnel from a submarine lying on the ground using autonomous deep-sea vehicles AS-34 and AS-36. These devices have repeatedly worked out a working submersion to a depth of 500 meters, which is the limit for most submarines. And in 2017, the rescue vessels UPASR of the Northern Fleet “Georgy Titov” and “Mikhail Rudnitsky” in the Norwegian Sea ensured the submersion of the autonomous deep-sea vehicle AS-34 to a depth of 1005 meters.

Rescue vessels of the Northern Fleet regularly operate in the Arctic, and also solve the problems of search and rescue support in the seas of the Arctic, Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans.
