According to him, the Pella-made tugs are widely known among the customers; by now, the Russian Navy has obtained 62 of them.
Pella’s debuting project is the Project 02981E rescue ship. "It is designed to render assistance to the damaged submarines, and to rescue crews. The ship is used for search, after-search and direct rescuing of submariners", Trushin said.
Pella’s head designer, Ilya Mashura, added that the rescue ship project was targeted at a narrow range of tasks, primarily related to salvage of crewmembers and their further medical treatment, including decompression.
"Purpose of this ship is to rapidly arrive at the predetermined point, promptly perform people rescue operations, and save as many submariners as possible", summed up the designer.
The second novelty is the Project 03184 small-size sea tanker. The ship is designed for transportation of diesel fuel, fresh water, and different types of oil, as well as for refueling of ships both in and out the ports.
In addition, the tanker can collect oiled waters and other wastes from the ships. Load capacity of the tanker is 2,000 tons.
The Army-2018 forum is held in August 21-26 at the Patriot Congress & Expo Center, Alabino Range, and Kubinka Airbase near Moscow.
