August 22, 2018 (Google Translation) – In the base of the detachment of vessels supporting the auxiliary fleet in Sevastopol, solemn events were held to raise the Andreevsky flag and to include in the Black Sea Fleet a new raid tug “BUK-2190”, which is built on the stocks of the Leningrad shipyard “Pella”.
Representatives of the manufacturer gave the tug to the command of the fleet association. Under the sounds of the State Anthem of the Russian Federation, the flag of the Navy was raised on the ship.
The vessel of this project is designed to perform towing and crocheting operations in the port, on raids, in coastal areas and marine areas, as well as to extinguish fires and perform other tasks.
After the Andrew flag is raised, the tugboat crew will start working on special course tasks. In the process of their implementation, sailors will conduct routine maintenance of ship equipment.
