Vladimir Kulikov, General Director of JSC Okskaya Sudoverf:

- For more than a century of the company's development, the Okskaya Sudoverf has accumulated a unique experience of building vessels of varying degrees of complexity, and is able to cope with the tasks set not only ahead of schedule, but also with consistently high quality. Last year the company underwent a large-scale modernization: new, modern equipment was purchased, production facilities were reconstructed. Due to the work done, the Okskaya Sudoverf today can rightly be called one of the industry leaders capable of producing unique, technologically sophisticated vessels. The high quality of the shipyard's work is recognized by our partners, including FBI “Marine Rescue Service of Rosmorrechflot” . The Okskaya Sudoverf is ready to further increase the volumes and rates of production. In 2017, the company continues to modernize production, aimed at increasing labor productivity and reducing energy costs. Our goal is to become the center of innovative shipbuilding in the Russian Federation. The fleet of the country should be updated due to modern, technological and environmentally friendly vessels, the ranks of which from now on are replenished by the multifunctional marine diving vessel-catamaran "Igor Ilyin". I wish the ship and its team a long and successful work.

The vessel "Igor Ilyin" of the SDS18 project is intended for providing diving and underwater engineering works at depths of up to 60 meters with sea waves up to 3 points. Can participate in rescue and ship-raising operations, and also be used to locate and support the work of research parties, surveys of the bottom of water areas, sunken objects, the underwater part of hulls of ships and hydraulic structures.
