Construction of a small hydrographic vessel for the Russian Defense Ministry started in the October Revolution shipyard in Blagoveshchensk, says the website of the Amur region government.

It is noted that the Nizhny Novgorod design bureau «Vympel» designed the draft 19910 vessel. The contract on construction was signed between the plant and the Russian Ministry of Defense.

“The contract signed in April 2015 is worth more than 2 billion rubles. The small hydrographic vessel is scheduled to be commissioned in 2020. We believe that the plant capacities will make it possible to build it in less than six years. In the near future we will discuss reduction of the project deadlines with the Ministry of Defense,” – Minister of Economic Development Vasily Orlov is quoted as saying.
