The ship built by Nevsky Shipyard covered more than 10,690 km
Cargo-passenger ferry Pavel Leonov (Project PV22) built by Nevsky Shipbuilding and Ship Repair Yard (Nevsky Shipyard, part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) has arrived in Korsakov, the ship’s homeport, the shipyard says in a press release.
The second vessel of PV22 project Pavel Leonov arrived in Sakhalin. Unlike the lead ship of Project PV22, the Pavel Leonov ferry sailed to Sakhalin along the Northern Sea Route, the shortest sea route between the European part of Russia and the Far East. The ship covered more than 10,690 km for slightly over 30 days.
The Pavel Leonov is planned to start operation this fall on the Korsakov - Kurilsk - Yuzhnokurilsk - Malokurilskoye – Korsakov route, for which the lead ship, the Admiral Nevelskoy, has already been deployed.
With the new ship, turnover of cargo and passengers on the Kuril line is expected to triple, says the statement.
The construction of PV22 project vessels was carried out by order of Sakhalinleasingflot JSC within the framework of the program “Social and economic development of the Kuril Islands for 2016 - 2025”.
