On 23 December 2014 a solemn ceremony of keel laying of two dredgers with the volume of holds of 1000 m3 took place at JSC “Krasnoe Sormovo Plant” dockyard (Nizhny Novgorod).

Dredgers with the volume of holds of 1000 m3 are designed to be classed not lower than KM R1 “Hopper Dredger” Ice1 AUT2 by the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping. Architectural and structural type of the vessels is the following: self-propelled, twin-screw, with auxiliary thrust device, with superstructure and pilot house.
