In the Nagaev Bay of the Sea of Okhotsk, work is underway to prevent an emergency on the sunken ship “Professor Moiseev”.
Trawler “Professor Moiseev” sank in 2006 and lies at a depth of 20 m in an inverted state, keel upward, with a roll to the port side of 3-5 degrees. In August 2020, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin called for a “general cleaning” to be carried out in the Far East, to clear the territory from landfills and ship cemeteries. At the end of September 2020, the plenipotentiary of the President of Russia in the Far Eastern Federal District, Yuri Trutnev, instructed the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation to study the possibility of lifting ships that sunk in the Sea of Okhotsk.
Divers of the Magadan search and rescue squad of the EMERCOM of Russia were involved in the work. In advance, safety instructions were given to the personnel taking part in the dives.
Simultaneously with the work on the inspection of the vessel, rescuers conduct exercises to prevent and eliminate the consequences of emergencies at a potentially dangerous facility. Their goal is to thoroughly survey the vessel and identify the threats it poses.
“On the first day of descent, the vessel was found by coordinates,” said Pavel Klochkov, head of the Magadan search and rescue team of the Russian Emergencies Ministry, “in low water, the diving depth is about three meters.
The information obtained during the dives will be thoroughly analyzed by specialists in the future and used in the course of a comprehensive assessment of the condition of the object and the necessary measures for the disposal of the vessel.
