Project 02670 Evgeny Gorigledzhan

On 19 March 2016 at the Yantar plant in Kaliningrad, a new vessel was laid down, or rather reloaded, for the General Directorate for Deep-Water Research [GUGI] of the RF Ministry of Defense, Eugene Gorigledzhan. The vessel "Eugene Goriglejan" is being created on the basis of the rescue tug MB-305, built in Poland at the Szczecin shipyard in 1983 and serving in the Northern and Baltic Fleets, which reduced its construction cost by 40%. According to the project 02670 JSC "Central Marine Design Bureau" Almaz "it will be converted for underwater technical work, environmental monitoring of the marine environment, oceanographic survey of the bottom layer, to help search and rescue forces at sea. The ship will take onboard inhabited deep-sea vehicles of the type" Russia "," Consul "and Bester type rescue vehicles. Displacement - 4 thousand tons, length - 81 m, width - 16 m, autonomy - 30 days, crew - 32 people and 25 members of the expedition.

The OIC Evgeny Gorigledzhan will be manufactured as a result of repair and re-equipment of the rescue tugboat MB-305 (Szczecin shipyard, 1983). The corresponding contract with the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation was signed by the Yantar Shipyard in mid-February of this year. A vessel intended for the Main Directorate for Deep-Water Research of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation will be handed over to the customer in 2017.

Project 02670 was developed at Almaz Central Marine Design Bureau JSC. The vessel is intended for underwater technical work, environmental monitoring of the marine environment, oceanographic surveys of the bottom layer, and assistance to search and rescue forces at sea. The ship will take on board underwater and rescue vehicles.

Gorigledzhan Evgeni Alekseevich (March 19, 1934 - September 26, 2014) - Soviet and Russian design engineer, general designer of special-purpose nuclear submarines at the Rubin Central Marine Design Bureau, laureate of the Russian Federation State Prize, Honorary Shipbuilder. According to the head of the GUGI Burilichev, after re-equipment taking into account its ice class, the vessel will be able to serve another 20-25 years. Up to 85% of its equipment, he said, "will be domestic." The ship is supposed to be in service "on the Black Sea - in Sevastopol," Burilichev said. The ships navigation areas, he said, will also be the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic. At the same time, it can be transferred to the service anywhere, the vice admiral added.

The ship was to be delivered to the customer in 2017. According to the general director of "Yantar" Eduard Efimov, given the deep re-equipment of the vessel, this will be a "new experience" for the plant. At the first stage, up to 200-300 people will be involved in the construction of the vessel. At the final stage, "to cope with the deadlines"

The shipbuilders of the Baltic shipyard Yantar launched two oceanographic research vessels for the Main Directorate for Deep-Water Research of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. This was announced to TASS on 28 October 2019 by a source in the shipbuilding industry. "The so-called technical launch of vessels without a ceremony on this occasion took place in the first decade of October," he said. These were the vessels of project 02670 "Eugene Gorigledzhan" and project 22010 "Almaz". "Eugene Gorigledzhan" was reloaded in 2016 on the basis of the sea tugboat MB-305 of project B-92. Its main declared task will be "carrying out underwater technical work." The vessel's displacement is 4 thousand tons, autonomy is 30 days, the crew is 32 people plus 25 members of the expedition.

Oceanographic research vessel (OIP) "Evgeny Gorigledzhan", being built at the Baltic shipyard "Yantar" (PSZ, part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) in Kaliningrad for the Main Directorate for Deep-Water Research of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, should be transferred to the customer at the end of March 2021, TASS reported 18 February 2020 Press Secretary of the shipyard Sergey Mikhailov said. PSZ Yantar and the Russian Ministry of Defense on 31 January 2020 signed an additional agreement to extend the term of the contract, which sets out the period in which our shipbuilders must complete the repair and refurbishment of the vessel. According to it, the plant must be transferred to the customer at the end of March next year," he said.

The interlocutor noted that in November 2018, work on the repair and conversion of the vessel was officially suspended, throughout 2019 negotiations were held and issues were resolved with the customer on the further execution of the state contract. Currently, the active phase of the construction of the OIC "Eugene Gorigledzhan" resumed. In early February 2020, workers returned to the ship to continue work, a representative of the Yantar Shipyard said.

The Yevgeny Goriglezhan oceanographic research vessel, which is being built for the Main Directorate of Deep-Sea Research of the Russian Defense Ministry, was launched at the Kaliningrad Baltic Shipyard Yantar (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation, USC) on 26 December 2020. Today we are launching a new oceanographic research vessel Yevgeny Goriglezhan. I am confident that the shipyard's staff will hand over this ship with dignity and honor in 2021, said Alexander Konovalov, the temporary head of the Main Directorate of Deep-Sea Research of the Russian Defense Ministry.
