    Petrozavodsk, Karelia based ONEGO Shipyard hosted a launching ceremony for the Morskaya, a self-propelled hopper barge of Project NV-600, the vessel customer Rosmorport said.

    Natalia Ugarova, the engineer of Onego Planning and Dispatching Department and a 25-year veteran in shipbuilding industry was Ship Sponsor during the ceremony.

    The agreement for design and construction of hopper barge duo (the Morskaya / the Smelaya) with a hopper capacity of 600 м3 was signed October 2018 between FSUE Rosmorport and Onego Shipyard. The construction started October 15, 2018.

    The shipbuilding company is using primarily domestically produced equipment and materials or supplied from EEC Customes Union. The propulsion system was assembled in Russia. The vessel's hull features modular concept and simplified hull lines, which reduces the cost of building. The barges main propulsion is of container type. The upper deck engine room arrangement will allow inspections and repairs of steerable propulsion units without drydocking.

    The NV-600 series vessel was designed by naval architecture and marine engineering firm Spetssudoproekt, with further modification of the project at "I-Sphere". The modified barge will be outfitted with a bow thruster, main engines and steerable rudderpropellers of greater power and a 32kW emergency diesel generator. To improve navigation, the console of ship control bridge and rudder-propellers remote control were changed. The vessel is outfitted with nozzle rudders, automatic pilot system,he height of the cargo hold hatch coaming above the upper surface was increased to 1 m.

    Construction is carried out under supervision and in accordance with the requirements of the RS.
    The hopper barges will execute dredging contracts at the Azov-Black Sea Basin (Port of Novorossiysk) and Makhachkala Branch of FSUE Rosmorport.
