    Ceremonial hoisting of Russian flag on the multipurpose salvage vessel Beringov Proliv, Project MPSV06, built by Nordic Yards Wismar GmbH (Germany) has been held today, December 18, in Vladivostok, Nordic Yards says.

    The ship has been officially delivered to the state customer, Transport Ministry of the Russian Federation, in the presence of Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation Arkadiy Dvorkovich, Minister of Transport Maksim Sokolov, Deputy Transport Minister Victor Olersky, Sakhalin Governor Oleg Kozhemyako, etc.

    The Beringov Proliv is the second 7 MW ship of Project MPSV06-NY officiallt delivered to RF Transport Ministry represented by Federal Marine and River Transport Agency (Rosmorrechflot).

    On the occasion of ceremonial hoisting of RF flag at the Beringov Proliv, RF President Vladimir Putin has sent a telegram to RF Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov and other ceremony participants. In his telegram Vladimir Putin emphasized that the construction of Murman and Beringov Proliv rescuers (both built in a record-short time) is a remarkable example of successful cooperation ties between Russian manufacturers of unique rescue, navigation and electrical equipment and German shipbuilders. It is also a strong contribution to strengthening of mutually beneficial relationship which has been tying our companies for many decades. 
     
    “We have delivered to the customer the Beringov Proliv, an ultramodern rescuer of a high ice class. The ship has no equals today, nether in Russia, nor worldwide”, said Vitaly Yusufov, Chairman of the Management Board at Nordic Yards. Both ships will soon leave for their duties: the Murman – from Murmansk, the ‘gateway’ of the Northern Sea Route; the Beringov Proliv will operate around Sakhalin and in other regions of the Far East. This will certainly give a fresh impetus to the development of the Northern Sea Route, enhance the safety level of coastal and open sea operations, provide crucially new opportunities for rescue services of today’s Russia and reinforce the country’s rescue fleet both in the North and in the Far East of Russia. We are ready to go on with providing Russian transport industry with a high class innovative products at competitive prices and also develop industrial cooperation with Russian shipbuilders.”

    The contract for construction of two identical rescue vessels was signed between Nordic Yards and Russia’s Federal Marine and River Transport Agency  (Rosmorrechflot) in December 2012. The two ships have been built by Nordic Yards Wismar GmbH under the subprogramme ‘Maritime Transport’ of the Federal Targeted Programme ‘Development of Russia’s Transportation System in 2010-2020”. The vessel will be operated by the Northern Branch of Rosmorrechflot’s Sea Rescue Service.
