Vessels of the 23370G project are designed for pilotage and hydrographic work, setting (shooting) and servicing floating warning signs, delivery of maintenance personnel, repair crews, food, fuel and other cargo to coastal facilities, including those located on an unequipped coast. Boats have the ability to quickly measure depths with the use of an echo sounder in places where floating signs are placed.
