Employees of the Amur Shipyard have completed the construction of a new ferry to operate on the Vanino - Kholmsk line. Ferry "Alexander Deev" will be able to carry passengers, cargo, cars and trains.

According to the press service of the plant, the ferry was redirected from Maly Silinskoye Lake to Amur, and from there to the delivery base of the plant in the Primorsky Territory. Insurance certificates for towing and hauling were issued for the ship. So far, all procedures have passed without incident.

As the responsible supplier Gleb Ilinykh noted, the journey to the lower reaches of the Amur will take about two weeks. Now the readiness of the ferry is 64%, the main mechanisms have been installed on it, about 100 km of the main cable have been tightened. The vessel also has a freight elevator, side ramp, stern ramp, and outboard ladders. Specialists of the Khabarovsk branch of the Register of Shipping accepted and checked all the main devices.

At the base in Primorye, tests of the ferry will continue, installation of stern devices, boards, elevator equipment, and all will be completed with mooring tests. The ferry will be equipped with a large number of automatic control systems: navigation and monitoring.

Order for the construction of new ferries for the Vanino-Kholmsk line the plant received in 2016... The laying of two buildings took place in 2017.

Under the contracts, NEA must deliver ferries at the end of last year, but at the end of the first quarter one ferry was not ready and on 20%and the second is less than 10%. Each ferry costs 4,9 billion rubles. STLC ordered them for money received from the budget and the Fund for the Development of the Far East.

Last year, dates had to be shifted due to problems with procurement, as well as subsequent contracting and the issuance of materials for design from foreign suppliers of the main marine equipment. Because of the sanctions, the plant had to look for intermediaries, and this delayed the time for completion of work.

The first ferry was named after the former director of the shipyard, Alexander Deev, and the second was named after the founder of Russian judo Vasily Oshchepkov, who was born and raised on Sakhalin.
