Russia to Build 118 Dredging Units by 2030

Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade recently presented the master plan for dredging vessels and equipment that will be acquired by the state by 2030.

According to the Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, Russia’s dredging fleet built in soviet times features out-of-date characteristics and high degree of wear.

The significance of dredging operations can hardly be overestimated. The example of Volga-Caspian Seaway Canal shows that decreased width and depth of the canal prevent shipbuilding and oil processing companies from efficient functioning,” he said.

The new master plan calls for ordering of 118 dredgers till 2030, all to be built by domestic shipyards.

Of that number, 36 dredging units will be constructed at Lotus shipyard (Astrakhan Region) under the order of Rechvodput, 18 units at Krasnoye Sormovo shipyard including 13 units for Rechvodput and five units for Rosmorport.

Zelenodolsk Plant named after Gorky is to get orders for 15 units from Rechvodput, Zavod Gidromekhanizatsii (Gidromeh CJSC, Rybinsk) – 21 units from the same customer. Rechvodput is also going to award the orders for two units to Sretensky shipyard (Zabaykalsky Territory)

Nobel Brothers Shipyard is to build five units including two units for Rechvodput and three for Rosmorport. Kostromskoy Shipbuilding and Ship Repairing Yard is to build four units, Chkalovskaya Shipyard (Nizhny Novgorod Region) – two units, Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard (Saint-Petersburg) – three units for Rechvodput. Onezhsky Shipyard (Petrozavodsk) – 12 units for Rosmorport.

Also, Zavod Gidromekhanizatsii is to build three Watermaster dredgers to the order of the Federal Subsoil Resources Management Agency in 2021-2025.
