The first serial marine tug of project 23470 went on sea trials

The first serial tugboat of project 23470 "Andrey Stepanov" went to factory sea trials. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Defense.


According to the report, tests of the sea tug are carried out in the Black Sea, on board, apart from the ship’s crew, are representatives of the Yaroslavl Shipyard, who train the crew in the operation, maintenance and practical application of ship systems, devices and mechanisms.

As noted by the Ministry of Defense, after the completion of factory sea trials, the tug will return to the Perseus shipyard in Sevastopol, where the tug will be prepared for state trials. Commissioning of the vessel is scheduled for 2021.

The second tugboat Andrei Stepanov, after the lead Sergey Balk, is the first serial in a series of five marine tugboats of Project 23470. Built at the Yaroslavl Shipyard according to the contract for two sea tugboats for the Ministry of Defense concluded in 2014. Laid down at YaZZ on July 27, 2015 and launched on June 29, 2017. Later it was transferred to the Sevastopol shipyard "Perseus", where it was completed on the water.

The tugboat is named after Andrey Ivanovich Stepanov (1863–1905), who served in the Baltic navy, participated in long voyages on cruisers "Rurik" and "Admiral Nakhimov", was repeatedly encouraged by the command, was awarded the orders of St. Anne 3 tbsp., St. Stanislav 2 and 3 tbsp. in 1903, for the distinction, he was promoted to captain of rank 2. In 1904 he was appointed commander of the Kamchatka transport and workshop, which was part of the Second Squadron of the Pacific Fleet under the command of Vice Admiral Z. P. Rozhestvensky. In the final phase of the Tsushima battle, A. Stepanov tried to help the heavily damaged flagship battleship "Prince Suvorov" and even cover him from the attack of the Japanese destroyer detachment with small-caliber guns from Kamchatka. He died at a combat post in a battle with the enemy.

The construction of marine tugboats of project 23470 is delayed significantly due to the halt in the construction of tugboats due to the processing of the project to replace imported components with domestic ones. Currently, the head tug "Sergey Balk" is serving in the Black Sea Fleet. The ceremony of bringing the tugboat into the squad of support vessels for the auxiliary fleet was held on February 21 this year in Sevastopol. Three more tugboats are under construction at the Yaroslavl Shipyard. They are built on a modified project with the installation of Russian equipment.

These marine tugs are designed to perform marine towing of ships, floating objects and structures in ice and in clear water; pilotage of vessels in the water area of ​​ports and docking; performing escort operations at sea; extinguishing fires at floating and onshore facilities, as well as extinguishing fuel burning on water; stranded ships and ships.

At the aft end of the vessel there is a platform for receiving and taking off helicopters. The presence of a crane with a lifting capacity of 20 tons at a boom reach of 13 m with active roll compensation allows the tug to independently carry out cargo operations and serve the helipad both in calm water and in marine conditions.

The main dimensions of the vessel: length, m 69,75; greatest width, m 15,0; board height to VP, m 6,7; the largest draft, m 5,2, displacement - 3200 tons. Autonomy in terms of provisions - 30 days, cruising range at a speed of 14 knots. - 3000 miles. Navigation area - unlimited in accordance with Arc 4 ice reinforcement class.

    Here is the trouble with these Russians ... and they are building and building these ships and vessels ... and they have torn their economies to shreds several times already .... (sarcasm if that) something on the launch of a tanker on the "Zvezda" 114 tons, missed ... like an extraordinary event for our shipbuilding. Or am I missing something ...

      You quite rightly noticed that you missed the launch of the Tanker on the Star. The last time of VO, there were a lot of interesting events to miss.

      The tug is named in honor of Andrei Ivanovich Stepanov (1863–1905), commander of the Kamchatka transport workshop, which was part of the Second Squadron of the Pacific Fleet under the command of Vice Admiral ZP Rozhestvensky. In the final phase of the Tsushima battle, AI Stepanov tried to help the heavily damaged flagship battleship "Prince Suvorov" by covering it from the attack of a detachment of Japanese destroyers with the fire of small-caliber guns from "Kamchatka". Killed at a combat post in battle with the enemy.

      Hero of the Tsushima battle, commander of the Kamchatka transport-workshop, Captain 2nd Rank Andrei Ivanovich Stepanov

      transport workshop "Kamchatka"

      During the day's battle, being in the transport detachment, "Kamchatka" received heavy artillery damage and banked to the starboard side. In the evening, passing by "Suvorov" and seeing its plight, "Kamchatka" tried to support it with the fire of its 47-mm "fluffs", in repelling the attack of Japanese destroyers. At six o'clock in the evening, passing Japanese cruisers shot down the Kamchatka, it capsized and sank not far from the Suvorov. Only 11 crew members and 13 artisans were saved.
      Together with the ship, 16 officers, 4 conductors, 239 lower ranks and 68 artisans were killed. Everlasting memory

    The tug is named after Stepanov Andrey Ivanovich (
    The encouraging continuity and memory of the little-known heroes of the Russian fleet of the past. A purely personal wish - to assign more names in our fleet to ships from the list of heroic ships of the Russian fleet. Of course there is Varangian, Don, Monomakh, Nakhimov, Suvorov is being built ... But there is no Glory, Mercury, Thunder and many others. Nevertheless, these names are better than Odintsovo or Mytishchi.

      There is no Memory of Azov, Askold, Savvy, Red Caucasus, Rurik, ...
      The tradition of naming cannot be interrupted.

      But it was impossible to rename Glory ....
      Luzhkov for Moscow could pick up something else ...

      Duc, and what to do - there are no ships for such names.
      The name "Glory" or "Memory of Mercury" somehow ... does not look good on board the RTO.

        Here you are right - it doesn’t look at RTOs, although how many heroic destroyers were in the REV and PMV, and the great Russian ... Pennants of modern RTOs are not enough ... But for Glory, for example, there is Ash. Glory and Severodvinsk evoke feelings that are different in intensity, don’t you?

    Laid down at 15, launched at 17, came out for testing at 20, will hand over at 21 .. Is it because of the sanctions that they worked with him for so long ...? The article mentions that the next hundred in the series will be with "local" stuffing .. And the ship was made good .. such a strong one, and good in ice class ..

    I looked at other photos on the network, calculated the approximate number of crew and cabins ... It seems to me that the vessel has advanced capabilities in the fleet, not only pulling and pushing. assessment good

    The ship must be considered wonderful.
    "The construction of sea tugs of project 23470 is going on with a significant delay due to the suspension of the construction of tugs due to the revision of the project to replace imported components with domestic ones."
    Presumably, the shipbuilder is faced with the question of which diesel engines we can install today?
    And you don’t have to (and most likely have to) cut the foundations in the car. And re-align the shafts, if they have already started.
    Like in our factory. On others, true ships. But from the Yaroslavl design bureau.
