Transneft Druzhba has started preparing watercrafts for the opening of the navigation season.
The Company’s fleet includes 55 units of water transport (oil skimmers, boom-laying boats, other water transport). The floating crafts are intended for patrolling and repairing underwater crossings of trunk pipelines on the Volga, Voronezh, Don and Desna Rivers.
Specialists are painting hulls, carrying out routine repairs and certifying rescue vehicles and radio stations on all vessels. The vessels’ conformance with sanitary and epidemiological requirements will also be inspected.
Crews are receiving instructions and undergoing medical examinations.
After the opening of the navigation season in May of this year, all vessels of Transneft Druzhba will be accepted into seasonal operation.
