Underwater construction of a sea port of Sochi

38 craftsmen are building a seaport that in 2014, for the first time will take a giant cruise ships with Olympic guests on board. They are boiled and cut metal, concreted structures, erect and strengthen the walls, explore the waters in large and small depths. We know who is working in the underwater shop is run under the water in survival suits weighing 20 kilograms and why Sochi dive boat called "Calypso".

Not a drop of rain or gust of wind. Full calm! We go on a mirror-smooth sea to the "Yaroslav". Bright red ship anchored a mile from shore.


"Yaroslav" the storm has passed the Azov and Black seas, calls to the port of Taganrog, Azov, Eysk, Temryuk, Gelendzhik, Novorossiysk. Then, if born again: tug turned into a mobile diving station. The ship was repainted in red, from the pressure chamber, pump air supply and a special remote control communication of Santa Barbara. In a city where the events took place the famous series, invented diving equipment, which is considered one of the best in the world.

"Yaroslav" "wakes up" early. Intercede for underwater divers watch at 7 am. The work requires a space of health. In the suit weighing 20 kilograms has concrete construction, cooking and cut metal, explore the waters in large and small depths. Today, the team is no less complicated task with an 8-meter depth needed to transmit the coordinates for the floating crane driver. He puts on the designated place 13-ton tetrapods. From these concrete heavyweights in the port build walls to protect the new harbor from storm waves. Thousands of tetrapods have already taken their places under the water, hundreds more waiting in line.
