Among other products, JSC Ship Repair and Shipbuilding Corporation presented Project 09662 Post coast guard floating base at 10th Neva 2011 exhibition opened on Sept 20 at LENEXPO center.
The floating base was designed and built by the order of Coast Guard, Russian FSB Frontier Service. This is the first project of this kind developed in Russia.
Commissioned early in 2011, the floating base maintains activities of State Maritime Inspection and FSB Frontier Service aimed at protection of state border, internal sea waters and territorial waters of the Russian Federation, aquatic bioresources, and state control over frontier regime.
Being situated in the Volga River estuary, non-propelled floating base provides temporal accommodation of state maritime inspectors and duty frontiersmen, border guard technical facilities, water craft of State Maritime Inspection (three Master-651 class motorboats) and their technical recovery. The base can be used as headquarters of search-and-rescue operations conducted by frontiersmen in patrol zones. Using available technical facilities, the base makes possible to conduct visual and radar monitoring over sea surface and fishery activities, as well as control of coast guard patrol craft in the region.
Temporal custody of arrested persons as well as storage of illegal fishing accessories is also possible at the floating base.
In fact, Post is a mobile motorboat base maintaining activities of State Maritime Inspection. It is fully equipped with all facilities needed for its crew and duty officers.
Throughout its service in Caspian Sea, the floating base received positive recommendations of frontiersmen; expectedly, FSB Frontier Service would make additional orders for such bases.
