Krasnoye Sormovo Shipyard, part of United Shipbuilding Corporation, held today the launching ceremony for the 1000 m³ trailing suction hopper dredger ‘Sommers’.

The dredger comes as the first in a series of three TSHD 1000 vessels that the shipyard is building for FSUE Rosmorport.

Rosmorport and Krasnoye Sormovo Shipyard signed the contract for this dredger in April 2014 and the keel laying ceremony was held in November 2014.
