Klaipeda Seaport Authority fleet has increased by one new vessel – the 2.895 million euros ‘Naras’ which entered the seaport on December 5, 2017.

This modern and multi-functional vessel will allow the employees of the Seaport Authority to work more efficiently and will facilitate the implementation of nature protection requirements.

In order to provide the streamlined seaport activity we must constantly be ready to assure the necessary depth and to remove the possible obstacles in the seaport waters‘ territory or  alongside the quays, for example boulders that remain after capital dredging works and etc,” said Director General of Klaipeda State Seaport Authority, Arvydas Vaitkus.

“Therefore, we must always be prepared technically. The new vessel will allow us to assure more efficiently navigation safety in the seaport.”

The vessel was built in Estonia, in Baltic Workboats AS shipbuilding yard.

The single crew of the Naras will be composed of a captain, engineer and a  motorman. The team of three divers will be constantly working on the vessel.
