Order dated February 2, 2022 No. 141-r
The federal center continues to work on updating the research fleet. As part of this direction, it is planned to build a large-tonnage offshore vessel for conducting comprehensive studies.
In the next four years, more than 23.4 billion rubles will be allocated for its creation, of which 900 million rubles will come in 2022. This order was signed by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.
The capacity of the new vessel will be more than 13.9 MW. With its help, scientists will be able to conduct a wide range of research in the oceans. This, among other things, will expand the resource base of Russian fisheries and meet the needs of mining companies.
Construction is scheduled to be completed in 2025, commissioning is scheduled for 2026.
The subsidies will be directed to the ship’s construction customer – the All-Russian Research Institute of Fisheries and Oceanography, subordinated to the Federal Agency for Fishery.
Work on updating the Russian research fleet is being carried out on behalf of the President. In 2020, the Government allocated about 28 billion rubles for the creation of two new research vessels with an unlimited navigation area. Their construction is planned to be completed within three years.
“Such modern research vessels will significantly increase the competitiveness of the domestic scientific fleet, improve the working conditions of our scientists and provide additional workload for Russian shipyards,” said Mikhail Mishustin at a meeting with Deputy Prime Ministers on January 31.
