Zvezda shipyard has all expertise and technical capacities required for the building of vessels of Arctic class. The design of the vessels is carried out at the Lazurit central design bureau, the general designer of all vessels currently under construction at the shipyard.

The new multifunctional ships of unrestricted navigation are designed to provide the different scientific researches of fundamental and applied significance, including physical, chemical, meteorological, biological, geological, geophysical, and others in the global ocean.

The research vessels will allow conducting a wide range of sea environment parameters measurements with the help of equipment aboard and towed with a capacity of processing data in real-time. The vessels will also have laboratories for analysis of the probes of water, suspensions, and bottom settlings aboard.

The vessels will be built with the use of up-to-date technologies and equipped with the most advanced measuring means.
