In May, the second high-speed Russian vessel of the new project “Valdai-45R” was launched in the Nizhny Novgorod region, capable of transporting 45 passengers on the rivers of our country at a speed of up to 70 km / h. The 21-meter vessel was created in the world-famous for its development of ekranoplans and high-speed ships of the Central Design Bureau for the SEC named after Alekseev.
Now the first “Valdai-45R” is successfully completing the tests in Russia. He has already shown excellent speed and running qualities, which turned out to be higher than the design ones. The hydrofoil vessel is equipped with armchairs of aviation type and has a cruising range up to 400 km. The tests recorded a maximum speed of 74 km / h
The Valdai-45R can be operated on full-flowing rivers throughout Russia: from the European part to the Far East. Great interest in this project is shown in the Volga Basin. In particular, the Samara region authorities are considering the use of new vessels “Valdai 45R” to provide intra-regional transport. The Khanty-Mansiysk District will be the first to receive new vessels: on the Ob River they will become the starting operators of the “Valdaev”
