Specialists from the Vympel Shipyard (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) have completed factory sea trials of the border patrol ship Burevestnik of the Guys project.
During tests in the waters of the Volga and Rybinsk Reservoir, the enterprise’s commissioning team checked the speed and maneuverability of the ship, the operation of the main systems and mechanisms, anchor-mooring and towing equipment, boat and towing devices. After completing the factory test program, the ship went to an external delivery base for state testing.
Burevestnik was launched on July 4, 2023. This is the sixth ship in the series, built by order of the Border Service of the FSB of Russia at the Vympel Shipyard.
The ship is designed to monitor compliance with established regimes in internal sea waters and the territorial sea, detain violating vessels, including high-speed vessels and boats, and deliver inspection teams to them. The project ships can carry out cargo transportation and transportation of personnel, provide assistance to ships in distress on internal and external roadsteads, extinguish fires on ships and coastal structures, and also carry out port operations at the bases of border authorities. The patrol vessel provides towing of vessels with a displacement of up to 500 tons at a speed of up to 4 knots in coastal areas of sea basins, transportation of port workers or similar groups, as well as up to 8 tons of cargo.
