Self-propelled hopper barge ‘Rabochaya’ has successfully completed sea trials at Onego Shipyard LLC, (Petrozavodsk, Republic of Karelia), informs FSUE Rosmorport.

During the trials, the admission board checked the operation status and application requirements, the functioning of automation, navigation and communication aids of the vessel.

According to Rosmorport, the vessel showed full readiness for operation and good capabilities.

The Rabochaya self-propelled hopper barge of KM Ice 1 R3-RSN AUT3 Class is designed for transporting dredged sediment to the unloading site as a part of a dredging convoy with a mechanical dredge or a pipeline dredge when dredging operations are being carried out, the company said.

The barge is equipped with the bottom system of hull opening. The main engines are placed in the back hull of the barge and covered by protection shields.

The Rabochaya was put afloat at the Onego Shipyard in September 2018. Vessels of this project are designed for the operation in the basins of the Black Sea, the Caspian Sea and the Baltic Sea.
