Intention to update the pilot fleet declared on a press - conferences on June 27 the director of GP "The Delta — the Pilot"Alexander Golodnitskyand his deputyGennady Garas.
By wordsG. Garasa, today average age of pilot boats which are available at the enterprise, makes 20-30 years is and morally, and technically outdated vessels which try to support in a state corresponding to the register of navigation of Ukraine.
But investments in capital and maintenance of existing pilot fleet from year to year grow. Therefore the Concept of development of fleet which provides construction of new boats and possible purchase of the boats "second-hand" was accepted. However, G. Garus reported, monitoring of the secondary market of pilot boats didn't yield special result. Therefore the main forces will be thrown on construction of new systems.
This year it is planned to put a series from 3 vessels which prototype will be "the delta - lotsmanovskiya" a leader - the boat "Pilot Kakhanov" (it is the boat of a heavy class). Besides, it is planned to put 2 boats of middle class.
For today, I reportedG. Caddis, to tell precisely who will carry out construction of new boats, anybody can't: the tender for construction will be announced. But, as plan in "The delta - the pilot", it will be domestic producer.
