Two new vessels were launched at once in the Khabarovsk Territory. This is the first time in the history of the Amur shipyard.

According to the press service of the government of the Khabarovsk Territory, the ferry "Vasily Oshchepkov" and the ice-class rescue tug "Kerch Strait" left the shipyard's slipways.

The Vasily Oshchepkov cargo-passenger road-rail ferry is the second ship of this class built in Komsomolsk-on-Amur to operate on the Vanino-Kholmsk crossing. It can carry up to 200 passengers, rail cars, auto trains and cars. The ice-class vessel has no restrictions on weather conditions.

The multifunctional rescue vessel "Kerch Strait" will join the fleet of the FSBI "Marine Rescue Service". It already has two such vessels built in Germany - the Bering Strait and the Murman. They can be operated by one person from the wheelhouse. The vessel can operate on the Northern Sea Route, performing icebreaking operations with ice thickness up to one and a half meters.

ASZ is the largest shipbuilding enterprise in the Far East. The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation announced there an order for six corvettes, as well as three rescue vessels, similar to those already launched - a discussion of this issue is scheduled for January 2021.

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