At Vyborg Shipyard completed construction of barges

At Vyborg Shipyard completed the construction of a semi-submersible barge. Enter barge into operation will improve the technology of construction orders with a decrease in cost and time performance, as well as alleviate some of the infrastructure constraints on the maximum width of the shipyards that build ships. Now Vyborg Shipyard will be able to build vessels up to 30 m wide (previously the maximum width is 18 m) wide and up to 150 m

The barge is designed for launching the hulls of ships, rolling hull structures weighing up to 5,000 tons and carrying out transport operations on the transfer of goods outside the area of Vyborg Shipyard. In addition, on the deck of the barge will be assembling buildings and launching under construction at the shipyard icebreakers.

The construction barge was carried out in the shortest possible time is the next step in an ambitious program of modernization shipyard. At the moment, the barge is prepared for the conclusion of the workshop. The first part of the craft will withdraw from the boathouse on April 25, the second — on April 29. After that will be produced descent barges on the water.


The barge is designed for year-round and round the clock operation. In its construction were used specific grades which allow flotation device to operate in ice.

The main characteristics of the barge:

Length — 130 m;

Width at berth-deck — 35 m;

Depth to the berth-deck — not less than 7.3 m;

Draught at DWL — approx. 5.3 m;

Mass of an object carried in the mode of transport pontoon — approx. 10,000 tons;

Mass descent method docking facility — no more than 8,600 tons
