The SEZ "Lotus" tenant laid down the keel of the passenger cruise vessel of "Golden Ring" project
January 17 the keel of the head ship of the project PKC180 "Golden Ring" is laid down in the SEZ "Lotus" at the shipyard "Lotos" (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation). This is the beginning of the construction of a new line of passenger cruise ships.
Two vessels of the type will be built for the "Gama" group. LLC "VolgaService" and OOO "Rechservis" (subsidiaries of the “Gama” group) will be their operators. Creation of vessels is carried out within the framework of the program of leasing of marine and river civil courts of USC with the involvement of Goznak-Leasing (part of the corporation).
The first-in-class vessel is a three-deck motor ship designed for 180 passengers, luxury and the first class accommodation. A spacious restaurant, a spa, a sauna, a gym and other opportunities for comfortable travel are available. There are also special cabins for people with disabilities.
New technological solutions that provide increased reliability and efficient operation in shallow water - up to 1.2 meters, are applied. In addition, computer traffic management gives an opportunity to berth to an unequipped shore. Passenger vessels of the new project will allow to expand the geography of river cruises not only in the European part of the country, but also in Siberia and the Far East.
"This is a fundamentally new project, designed under the specifics of Russia's inland waterways. It is a continuation of the revival of the Russian passenger cruise fleet and the entire tourist industry of the country. Two new vessels will fill the backlog of orders of our shipyard. The company is constantly increasing its competence in the construction of the passenger fleet and will fulfill its contractual obligations, "said Igor Sadovnichy, General Director of JSC" Shipyard "Lotos".
