  1. Duplicate VHF radiotelephone station with DSC coder placed on ship control console.
  2. INMARSAT shipboard satellite communication station of C standard incorporating the broadened group calling device.

Composition, automation level of radio equipment means and their location make it possible to operate the ship with radio operator on crew staff and without radio operator (ship radio chief) when the radio communication is provided by watch navigator. The efficiency of GMDSS radio equipment is provided by the combination of two ways: by duplicating of radio communication means and by shore maintenance and repair.

Power supply of radio communication means. The main power supplies - ship mains 220 V 50 Hz from TPIII Emergency power supplies form APIII of emergency diesel generator. Reserve power supplies - 24 DC from base or doubling storage batteries. The batteries are charged from 2 automatic chargers.

Antenna installation: Each radio installation works with its own antennas, which provide independent operation of all radio communication means.

Ship relaying and broadcast aids

A unified public-address and relaying system for 20 directions is installed aboard and enables the ship to send commands, broadcast programs (on relaying lines), conduct public-address communication between control station as well as with shore and other ships.

For a short-distance sound communication with other ships, as well as to send commands, fixed and portable electrical megaphones are used.

Other radio equipment:

  • colour TV-sets in accommodation;
  • radio sets in commanders’ cabins.

Onboard communication and signalling

The ship is equipped with onboard telephony, emergency and fire alarm. The onboard telephone communication uses an automatic telephone exchange for 20 subscribers and batteryless telephones.

Navigational aids

The chart room is equipped with a radio direction finder, which is designed to define the ship’s position at sea, to find the bearing to the ships in distress.

The wheelhouse has two navigational radar, which serve to the safety of navigation in the open sea, in coastal areas and narrow waters, in enclosed fairways in conditions of reduced visibility.

To determine ship's location and co-ordinates in open sea there is a receiver indicator of satellite system in the chart room.

Electrical navigational equipment

The ship is equipped with:

  • a gyro compass system;
  • a relative induction log (without prominent parts on the bottom);
  • an echo sounder with scale depth 0 to 500 m;
  • a magnetic compass with optical transmission to the house.


Ship control instruments

  • tachometers of the propeller shafts;
  • automatic steerer "Pechora 6-2"for control of steering engines in a manual and automatic modes;
  • rudder indicators and rudder telegraph.


Automation and control

Ship control

The equipment providing for the navigation is concentrated on a navigation console situated in the rudder house. Both wheelhouse wings may be equipped with tack-up navigational equipment.

The power plant, electric power plants and ship system are automated in compliance with notation A3 of Register Regulations.

The extent of automation and degree of centralisation of control and monitoring guarantees the possibility to attend the power plant without watch.

The main engines are equipped with an electrical remote control system (DAY).

The starting of beforehand ready main engines, changing of their operating duty, reversing and stopping are effected with the help of the remote control system (DAY) either from the wheel-house or from the bridge wings or from the standby control console situated on a platform in the engine room, using an electrical remote communication, as well as from stations arranged on the engines.

Emergency and warning alarm

The emergency and warning alarm is designed to generate a light and a generalised audible signal in case of failure (warning) or in emergency (alarm) on a monitored device or a group of devices.

The emergency warning and alarm system embraces the most important devices and machinery on which depends the ship’s going, its controllability and survivability on the whole and the safety of servicing personnel.

The price of this vessel is US$ 4,5 million
