The Sommers, named after the island in the eastern part of the Gulf of Finland, was launched in January 2016. Having undergone the mooring and sea trials the vessel is being prepared for the delivery.

The second ship named Kronshlot will be launched next week, June 8th, and the construction of the third vessel that will bear the name of Kadosh is in full swing at the moment.
