Commissioning ceremony of scientific expedition ship Akademik Treshnikov took place at JSC Admiralteyskie Verfi shipyard on Oct 10. The solemn flag-hoisting ceremony was attended by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

Akademik Treshnikov is a scientific expedition ship ordered by Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring (Rosgidromet). The new flagship of Russian research fleet will replace the similar-purpose vessel Akademik Fedorov and is designed for the Russian Antarctic Expedition.

The research ship Akademik Treshnikov built under project developed by Baltsudoproekt Design Bureau. The ship combines functions of icebreaker, dry cargo ship, passenger liner, and scientific research station; she has strengthened ice-class hull and is equipped with up-to-date navigation facilities, two heliports, special laboratories capable to process results of oceanographic researches, atmospheric soundings, and other scientific experiments.

The ship provides comfortable operating conditions to the crew and scientists at ambient air temperature down to minus 40 degrees centigrade. There are no limitations as of navigation area, including independent sailing and drifting in ice conditions, and cruises in tropical seas.

Construction of the research expedition ship Akademik Treshnikov has become the first step in implementation of the presidential decree on expanding of Russia’s activities in Arctic, Antarctic, and World Ocean. With induction of this ship, Russia will step up at a new stage in polar explorations.
