The senior pilot of linear pilot service EMLS "Nikolaev" Anatoly Prokin and the pilot of 1 class Valentin Katyuzhan executed unique operation. They carried out a plavdok by means of two powerful tows on Kherson sea and Bugsko - Dneprovsko - to limansky to channels. And, the considerable part of a way on channels should be overcome in a night-time. The caravan from dock and tows with an average speed of 3 knots passed 71 miles from Kherson to Youzhny in days.
- Conducting of big and slow object on the channel - a task very difficult. She demands a wide experience of the pilot, coordinated actions of tows, - the chief of Uniform sea pilot service "Nikolaev" of GP "The Delta — the Pilot" Yury Harkov noted.
Pilots settled down on both tows.
- We lost operation in the training center. But the reality always differs from virtuality, - Anatoly Prokin told. - In particular, the screw stream from a tow rested against a forward wall of dock and slowed down towage. It was necessary to reduce speed from settlement 5 knots to three.
On July 23 at 7 o'clock in the morning the caravan from floating dock and a sea tow left a zone of responsibility of GP "The Delta — the Pilot" and continued transition to Varna (Bulgaria).
