Russian Navy commissions two Project 23040 search and rescue boats

The Russian Navy has commissioned another two Project 23040 search and rescue boats in a ceremony in Severomorsk.

Bearing pennant numbers 1229 and 1230, the boats will be based in Severomorsk, Murmansk region, where they will be part of the Northern Fleet’s diving service.

Project 23040 boats are built under a 2013 contract signed between the shipyard and the Russian ministry of defense. ZNT Yard was initially to build 16 boats but that number was later expanded to 22 units.

The vessels can support diving operations up to 60 meters in depth and are equipped with remotely operated vehicles and a towed sonar. They are also equipped with firefighting equipment that allows them to fight fires up to 30 meters high, pump water from other vessels and supply them with power.
