KAMPO has received a three-year contract to build new hydrographic boats for the Russian Navy under the project 23370G, the Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD) announced on 3 July.

The multifunctional hydrographic module catamarans are being built for the Russian Navy Hydrographic Service.

With a displacement of 140t, the hydrographic boats will be able to handle buoy-laying and hydrographic works, set up and maintenance of floating warning buoys and delivering maintenance personnel, repair crews, food, fuel and other cargo to onshore navigation equipment facilities, including those located on unequipped coasts.

By using survey echo sounders, the boats will have the ability to sound the depths at places where floating warning buoys are positioned.
