The new ship-lifting pontoon SSP-200 has been transferred to the forces and means of the search and rescue service of the Navy and will be deployed in the Black Sea Fleet. The pontoon was manufactured by the Moscow Region enterprise KAMPO JSC by order of the Main Command of the Navy.
Pontoon SSP-200 is a specialized technical facility equipped with flooding and blowing systems, as well as securing devices to a sunken or transported object. It is designed to lift sunken ships, keep them afloat and provide stability during lifting, as well as to reduce draft when navigating in shallow water.
The technical solutions patented by the employees of the Research Institute of Rescue and Underwater Technologies of the VUNC of the Navy “Naval Academy” were used as the basis for the requirements for the modernization of pontoons and were implemented by the shipbuilding plant of JSC “KAMPO” (Orekhovo-Zuevo, Moscow Region) in the head pontoon.
