The LenVBM Commission checked life support, safe service and habitat conditions on a communication vessel. In addition to the medical unit, cabins and sanitary facilities, the commission was presented to the galley unit, which will be responsible for catering for more than a hundred people. During the test, the work of the equipment involved in cooking was tested: cooking pots, ovens, a flour-screening machine, a dough-mixing unit, ventilation systems, refrigerators and various electrical appliances that facilitate the cooking process - only about 30 positions. All equipment installed in the galley - domestic production in accordance with the requirements of the customer.
