    Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard commences construction of multi-purpose boats of Project R1650 Rondo for FSB Border Service (photo)

    Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard OJSC (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) says it has commenced the construction of serial boats of Project R1650 Rondo for the Federal Security Service of Russia.

    Under the contract signed in October 2016 the shipyard will build two multi-purpose boats and will deliver them to the customer in 2017 and in 2018 accordingly.

    The shipyard has completed metal cutting and preparing of the construction site. 

    In 2015, Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard built and delivered to the Russian FSB Border Service the R1650 Rondo class fast patrol cutter intended for  different tasks including patrol and inspection in designated areas, delivery of personnel to / from inspected ships, transport of personnel and cargo, rescue people in coastal areas.
     
    The boats of Project R1650 Rondo developed by Design Group RICOCHET LLC feature a number of advantages. The R1650 is based on a hull that has been constructed in steel which was chosen to give the patrol boat the capability of operating in ice covered waters. This will extend the operation window of the boats during the winter months. The steel hull is combined with a deck and superstructure that are constructed from composites in order to achieve a significant reduction in the overall weight and to reduce the draft which will allow the vessel to operate in shallow waters. The hull is of the semi-displacement type with a skeg to give good directional stability.

    The design allows for prompt adjustments according to the customers’ needs.
     
    OJSC Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard, a part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation, was created in 1912. The shipyard has built over 500 warships and vessels of 43 designs for the Russian Navy and foreign customers. Currently, the shipyard builds missile boats, trawlers, passenger and work vessels for various purposes and is about to start the large-scale construction of mine warships of the new generation for the Russian Navy and foreign countries.

    Today, the shipyard is the leader of composite shipbuilding in Russia and the only plant in the country to build warships and civil vessels of 4 types of materials: composite materials, shipbuilding steel, nonmagnetic steel, aluminum and fiberglass. The shipyard has mastered the technology of building hulls of composite materials through vacuum infusion method.
