10 May 2012 of the year engaged in the construction of ships and boats for power structures of Kazakhstan JSC Ural Plant Zenit (Uralsk) launched a large patrol boat Semser built for the Border Guard Service of the Republic (tail number 204). This boat was the fourth built at the plant for the Border Service of Kazakhstan, the unit of the 0300 project (Bars). The 0300 project is the local designation of the 22180 project developed by the Kazakh order by the St. Petersburg OJSC Northern PKB. Earlier, from 2005, the Zenit plant built for Pogranichnaya Kazakhstan’s three boats of the 0300 project - Sardar (tail number 201, commissioned in December 2006 of the year), Sakshi (tail number 202, in line with 2008 of the year) and Zhenis (tail number 203, in line with 2010 of the year. In the Border Guard Service of Kazakhstan, they are listed as border guard ships of the 2 rank.
Unlike the three previous boats of this type, the Semser has a modified structure with a modified hull and superstructure architecture, and is unified in this regard with the Zenith built almost simultaneously on the basis of the same project for the Kazakhstan Navy small rocket-artillery ship "Kazakhstan" (board number 250), about which we wrote our blog. Kazakhstan was launched on April 26 of 2012. The Semser, with a full displacement of about 250 tons, is armed with one old 25-mm paired 2М-3М artillery. Now, the Zenit plant is building two more ships of the “Kazakhstan” type for the Kazakh Navy, and another ship of the “Semser” type for the Border Guard Service.
