The Northern Fleet will soon receive the next Project 23040 harbor complex rescue boat. The launching ceremony of the boat took place at the Nizhegorodsky Teplokhod shipyard. The press service of the enterprise reports.

The crew is three people, as well as a diving group of five people. They have a high power-to-weight ratio and ice class, which allows them to work confidently on external roads and outside them at a distance of up to 50 miles from their bases.
