In order to make navigation along the Northern Sea Route safer, it is planned to carry out a bottom survey with a total length of 430 thousand km by 2025. Such data were given at a speech in the Federation Council by Deputy Prime Minister and Presidential Plenipotentiary in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev, reports TASS.

According to the Deputy Prime Minister, from 2022 to 2025, the survey will be carried out in the Arctic territory of the Krasnoyarsk Territory, Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug and Chukotka. By the end of 2021, it is planned to survey 78.5 thousand km.

Let us note that the survey is performed by the Federal State Unitary Enterprise "Hydrographic Enterprise". As it became known earlier, in 2021-2024, for the needs of the enterprise, it is planned to modernize three existing vessels.

As part of the construction of the new fleet in 2021, it is planned to commission four vessels: two surveying motor-boats of the E35.G project and two buoy vessels of the Ice3 class of the BLV03 project. Moreover, it is planned to build a lead buoy vessel of the Arc7 ice class.
