Project 23120 Vsevolod Bobrov Begins Sea Trials

March 20, 2021 (Google Translation) – Project 23120 logistics support vessel Vsevolod Bobrov, built at Severnaya Verf (part of USC), has entered the factory sea trials. All mooring certificates of the vessel are closed.

It is planned that the factory sea trials in the Baltic Sea will last for about a month. A delivery team of more than 100 people will work on the ship together with the crew. Its tasks include checking the main power plant, other systems and ordering mechanisms, testing the operation of cranes and winches in the open sea. In April, the commissioning team and sailors must proceed to state tests.

Vsevolod Bobrov is the second ship of Project 23120 built at Severnaya Verf. The lead ship “Elbrus” joined the group of support vessels for the service of the auxiliary fleet of the joint strategic command of the Northern Fleet in 2018. In 2019, Elbrus completed a 175-day circumnavigation of the world with Russian ships led by the frigate Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Gorshkov.

Based on the results of the operation of the head order, project 23120 has been finalized. In particular, the functionality of the deck has been increased, communication and navigation systems have been improved.

Logistics support vessel “Vsevolod Bobrov” of project 23120 is intended for the carriage of goods, towing, conducting hydrographic studies, and rendering assistance to ships in distress. Thanks to crane equipment and a dynamic positioning system, the “supplier” can carry out loading operations at unequipped quay walls and in the open sea. Automation class A1 provides unattended service. The hull with ice class ARC4 is designed to overcome 0.6 m thick ice.

The ship is named after the famous football player and hockey player, Honored Master of Sports, Honored Coach of the USSR, Olympic champion Vsevolod Mikhailovich Bobrov (01.12.1922 -01.07.1979), the only athlete in the history of the Olympic Games who was the captain of the national team of the country in both in another sport.
