Today, at the Yaroslavl shipyard, a new vessel was solemnly launched – a non-self-propelled dredging dredger of the RDB 66.42M project. This is the first ship of this model, created at the enterprise under a state contract concluded with the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation in May last year.

At the solemn ceremony of launching a non-self-propelled dredging dredger of the RDB 66.42M project, Yaroslavl shipbuilders on behalf of the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral Nikolai Evmenov, were congratulated by the head of the Navy’s shipbuilding department, Captain 1st Rank Ilyas Shigapov. He expressed confidence that the Yaroslavl Shipyard will continue to maintain a high level of reliability in fulfilling orders for the Navy.

“The plant has a huge technological, material, technical and personnel potential, which allows it to implement the most complex projects,” said Maxim Avdeev, Deputy Prime Minister of the Yaroslavl Region.

The new vessel is intended for deepening of fairways, canals, roadsteads and other areas of the sea, development and transportation of soils from the bottom of reservoirs through a floating control pipeline, as well as for filling dams. The model is equipped with a dredge pump, diesel generators and other devices. Length – more than 65 meters, width – 12 meters, height – 3.4 meters, displacement – about 900 tons.

It is planned that the ship, after all stages of testing, will serve in the Caspian Flotilla. At the Yaroslavl Shipyard, by order of the Russian Ministry of Defense, two more similar models will be produced.

For reference:

Yaroslavl Shipyard was founded in 1920. It produces ships of any complexity – from small boats to large sea and river vessels with a displacement of up to 3.2 thousand tons.

Over its long history, the plant has made a significant contribution to the development of the Russian fleet and the fleets of the countries of Europe, Asia, and Africa. The enterprise annually shows the growth of financial and economic indicators, an increase in the volume of manufactured products and an improvement in the quality of the ships produced. The program of complex advanced development of the enterprise is being successfully implemented and the efficiency of production is increasing.
