On November 26, at the Nevsky Shipyard in the city of Shlisselburg, the laying of two research vessels (NIS) of project 17050 took place. The Minister of Agriculture of the Russian Federation Dmitry Patrushev and the head of the Federal Agency for Fisheries Ilya Shestakov took part in the ceremony.

According to Dmitry Patrushev, the new vessels will become the flagships of the fishing fleet and scientific research in this area. The implementation of the projects will make a significant contribution to the development of industrial science and will contribute to a significant increase in the potential of the fishing industry: it will also help to expand the fishing areas, increase the volume of catch and processing, and ensure the delivery of fresh products to the consumer. The minister noted that the state will continue to support the development of scientific research. In particular, in the coming years it is expected to lay down another 8 similar modern vessels.

Ilya Shestakov speach during the ceremony

The head of the Federal Agency for Fishery, Ilya Shestakov, noted that the renewal of the research fleet is strategically important for the development of the industry. “Thanks to the decision of the President, now about 100 fishing vessels are being built, but the fishing industry cannot live without a scientific fleet, it cannot live without resource research. If the appropriate decisions are not made on how much of the quotas can be provided, then the next year fishermen will not be able to go to sea. Therefore, this is a very important and significant event. The fishing fleet is now working for wear and tear, we have no time to carry tourists, and therefore for us the scientific fleet is an important and huge component of the entire complex,” said Ilya Shestakov.

The honored guests installed commemorative plaques on the mortgage sections of the new research vessels, which indicate the type of vessel, its name, keel laying date and address - the city of Shlisselburg, Nevsky Shipyard.

The names of the ships were given: "Professor Pyotr Moiseev" and "Professor Anatoly Elizarov" - in honor of outstanding scientists who have made a significant contribution to the formation and development of domestic industry science.

Within the framework of the Strategy for the Development of the Arctic Zone, approved by the President of Russia in October 2020, and the comprehensive Program for the socio-economic development of the Arctic Zone, approved by the Government of the Russian Federation in March 2021, the renewal of the research fleet is necessary to study the state of aquatic biological resources and monitor the ecological situation in the strategically important Northern region.

The new vessels will bring research to the most modern technological level, which will increase the accuracy of the search for commercial fish stocks and scientific forecasting to establish the total allowable catch (TAC) of aquatic biological resources.

The construction of modern NISs is being implemented within the framework of the Strategy for the Development of the Fisheries Industry of the Russian Federation for the Period up to 2030, approved by the President of Russia Vladimir Putin.

The main characteristics of the research vessel of project 17050:

  • Length - 54 m.
  • Width - 13.6 m.
  • Draft - 6 m.
  • Speed ​​- 14 knots.

Project 17050 research vessels will be one of the most advanced research fishing vessels in the world.

A team of the crew and scientists - 26 people, who will be able to stay on such a vessel in autonomous navigation for a month. A modern thruster, with the ability to turn 360 °, not only facilitates maneuvering in difficult water areas, but will also serve to increase the safety of navigation in case of emergency situations.

For maximum integration of scientists into the natural research area, the vessel is designed with reduced noise and vibration radiation into the aquatic environment, and a retractable keel is provided to reduce the effect of interference on the results of hydroacoustic observations.

The NIS wheelhouse will have an operations center with large reverse tilt windows. They go out to the aft deck. This is the area of ​​the hydroacoustic laboratory.

An outboard work center will be constructed on the starboard side. It broadens the operational view to observe trawling and scientific equipment towing operations while the vessel is in motion, as well as vertical sounding at drift and anchor stations.

In the bow of the vessel, there are spaces for placing two 20-foot containers, in which additional or non-standard laboratories can be organized with a replaceable complete set of scientific equipment used for one-time work.

The vessel will house: a hydrobiological and hydrological unit, including "dry" and "wet" laboratories, storage rooms for fixed samples and chemicals, a STD hangar for working with STD probes, bathometric cassettes, plankton nets, a remote-controlled unmanned underwater light class (TNPA). An ichthyological and technological unit was constructed, as well as two rooms for storing frozen and chilled samples and samples.
