September 7, 2021 – The boat of the P1650 project “Rondo”, built by the Sredne-Nevsky shipyard (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation), has successfully completed the program of factory sea trials.
During the implementation of the test program, the SNSZ commissioning team checked the operability of the main systems and mechanisms of the boat. The vessel will become the fourth boat in the P1650 series, built at the Sredne-Nevsky shipyard for the needs of the Frontier Service of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation. The lead boat of the R1650 project “Rondo” was handed over to the customer in 2015.
The multipurpose boat of the P1650 project “Rondo” is designed to perform the tasks of the patrol and inspection service, to be on duty in designated areas, to deliver and remove special personnel from ships subject to inspection, to transport groups of special personnel, cargo, and to rescue people in areas of duty.
A feature of the P1650 “Rondo” project is the combination of materials and technologies during construction, which provides a number of advantages that can significantly reduce the costs of operating and maintaining the vessel. The use of composite materials in the manufacture of the deck, deckhouse and fittings provides a high quality finish. The hull of the boat, made of shipbuilding steel, and the design features of the bottom and outboard fittings allow the vessel to be operated in winter in fine ice conditions, as well as to lay the boat on the water with freezing into the ice.
