The passenger catamaran project 23290 came for tests
The hull is made of composite materials
with use of domestic carbon fabrics of the Prepreg-SKM company. Use of
composite materials in this project allowed to improve its shock
durability for 20-30%, fatigue durability Ц for 50-200%. Besides,
composite hulls are much lighter than metal and arenТt subject to
corrosion. Thanks to composite material weight reducted for 10-30%.
The catamaran constructed at Sredne-Nevsky
shipyard is intended for transportation of 150 passengers on distance up
to 1000 km not only on the rivers, but also in a coastal sea zone (the
vessel can be operated at heaving of sea up to 4 points without decrease
in high-speed characteristics).
Earlier, on September 20 this year, at the St. Petersburg innovative
forum, the passenger ship has been presented to the public. On the
