The contract provides for the construction of two scows commissioned by the FSUE “Rosmorport”. It is planned that the barges will work in the seaport of Novorossiysk.

As a propulsion complex, two container-type diesel units will be used, installed on the deck in the aft part of the vessel, which will allow inspecting and repairing steering columns without placing bollards in the dock.
