Project 03182

The Russian Defense Ministry contracted four small tankers of project 03182 in 2014-2015. The first two vessels are being built in Nizhny Novgorod for the Black Sea fleet. Another two are under construction in Vladivostok for the Pacific fleet. The ships are universal and can engage in a broad range of missions. They transport liquid and dry cargo and passengers. They can pump fuel and oil to ships in open sea and load major cargoes in barrels, boxes, and containers. The tanker can withdraw any garbage from a warship, as well as liquid waste, including oil polluted water. It can ensure transport operations in seaports.

It can engage in rescue duties in fishing areas, offshore oil and gas deposits and enjoy air support, as it has a helipad for Ka-27 in the stern. The tanker can carry several drones for reconnaissance in a radius of several dozen or hundreds of kilometers depending on the model. In an emergency, the tanker can rescue distressed seafarers. It can heave off a vessel, pump out water and tow it to a nearby port. The tanker has pumps and water jets to extinguish fire.

Project 03182 ships can operate in any latitude, including northern ones. They can operate in Arctic seas in 0,6-0,8-meter thick ice. They can sail the Northern Sea Route and participate in Arctic scientific expeditions. The tanker is not big and has a displacement of 3500 tons. It is 78,8 meters long and 15,4 meters wide and enjoys good seaworthiness. The crew comprises 24 men and eight people can be accommodated.

Small Seagoing Tanker Vice-admiral Paromov laid down 01 September 2016 at Volga Shipyard, Nizhniy Novgorod (yard No.850), launched on 20 December 2018.
