ordinary operations in areas of the seas with shallow depths, diving vessels and
boats of various displacement were used in the Navy of the USSR. Project RV1415
boats (diving variant of standart Project 1415 boat) were a large series of cutters
that were built for the Soviet navy starting in 1976 and are in use up to this
day on the rivers and harbors for Russia. Diving boats of this project served
on all fleets of the USSR and later - the Russian Federation. In total, more than
70 boats of this type were built.
Project 14157 is a diving boat developed
on the basis of the widespread project 1415 boat, which is a project of its deep
modernization to meet modern requirements. The boat project was developed by Vympel
Design Bureau, Nizhny Novgorod. The series of boats of this project is 8 units.
The seaworthiness of the boat ensures safe sailing when the sea is rough
up to 5 points, the performance of diving operations when the sea is up to 3 points.
it is a single-deck single-screw displacement boat with a single-deck wheelhouse
and an engine room in the middle, with a burl and an open working platform in
the stern. The hull of the boat is steel. For lifting cargo, including from depth,
a hydraulic crane for 0.75 tons is installed on the boat. The diving equipment
of the boat includes diving television equipment, equipment for underwater welding
and cutting, a pressure chamber RKuMu, a diving folding ladder and a gazebo, 2
sets universal diving equipment SVU-5-1, high-pressure air compressors, underwater
lighting equipment. The autonomy of navigation in terms of fuel reserves is 7
Diving boat RVK-2159 laid down at the Moscow SSRZ (yard. No.109)
