Admiral Nevelskoy ferry leaves Saint-Petersburg for Sakhalin
The Admiral Nevelskoy ferry, Project PV22's lead freight and passenger ship, left Saint-Petersburg for Sakhalin today, February 25, 2021, according to the series designer, the Marine Engineering Bureau.
The vessel was constructed under contract with Sakhalinleasingflot JSC at Nevsky Shipbuilding and Ship Repair Yard (Nevsky Shipyard, part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation), based in the Leningrad region.
The cargo and passenger ship will support the ferry line to Sakhalin Island - Kuril Islands.
The ferry was designed by the St.Petersburg Marine Engineering Bureau-Design-St (MEB-Design-SPb).
On 12 March 2019, Admiral Nevelskoy, the first of the PV22 pair, held a keel-laying ceremony. Pavel Leonov, the keel of the second vessel, was laid down on April 1, 2019, and launched on August 6, 2020.
Capacity of the PV22 series vessels: 146 passengers, general cargo, including refrigerated containers, and Hazardous Products (pack): increased holding capacity to 895 cbm; 24 containers (including 8 reefer containers) and six vehicles.
The ship is suitable for passengers with disabilities, including a separate cabin for one or two disabled passengers and an accompanying person. The ferry is also fitted with a freight crane to handle cargo to the shore without machinery.
As the design of the ship is based on the Project MPSV07 rescue ship, the new concept provides greater maneuverability and enhanced icebreaking capabilities.
