In the Primorsky Territory, one of the Aframax-type tankers will be named in honor of the first President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev. The ceremony of laying the fifth tanker of this series took place at the Zvezda shipbuilding complex.

According to the press service of the Government of Primorye, during the ceremony, the governor Oleg Kozhemyako and the general director of the Zvezda plant Sergey Tseluyko attached a memorial plate to the keel section of the tanker.

According to Oleg Kozhemyako, it is symbolic that ships with the symbol of Kazakhstan will leave the Far Eastern plant as a sign of friendship, which will be continued to strengthen peace and cooperation.

The Aframax tankers are the first vessels of this type built in Russia. They are equipped with the most advanced Class A automation system. Tankers are designed to transport crude oil in an unlimited navigation area thanks to the use of liquefied natural gas power plants. In total, Zvezda will manufacture 12 tankers of this type.

In May launched the first Russian tanker of the Aframax type Vladimir Monomakh. They did this with the help of the Vympel transport and transfer dock, one of the largest in Russia. Preparation for the descent took almost a day.
