On May 16, 2017 JSC “R.E.Alexeev’s Hydrofoil DB” (Hydrofoil Design Bureau named after R.E.Alexeev) launched general service boat “Katran”at the territory of JSC “Plant Red Sormovo”, - says the press-service of CDB.

It is noted that it was the first experience of the building at own production of the projects of the third-party organization in the history of DB - a joint work of JSC “CMDB “Almaz” and JSC “R.E.Alexeev’s Hydrofoil Design Bureau” for JSC “Shiprepairing Center “Zvyozdochka”.

“Katran” - the high-speed high-maneuverable boat of wide application. It will be located on the carrier-vessel and used for the transporation of people, cargo and towing of different floating crafts with the displacement of up to 70 tons, as well as to provide the daily activity of main vessel during the riding at anchor, inshore moorings and in the base.

For more than 65 years JSC “R.E.Alexeev’s Hydrofoil DB” carried out the works on design of high-speed transport units of civil, dual and military purposes, which use different hydrodynamic maintain principles.  These are hovercrafts and hydrofoils, air-cavity vessels and gliding boats with different bottom’s mechanization, transport-amphibious platforms and ekranoplanes. For today, there are built more than 8000 passenger vessels and boats, operated in 35 countries of the world, which are based on the projects of CDB.

In the framework pf the Federal target program ‘Development of civil and marine engineering”, JSC “R.E.Alexeev’s Hydrofoil Design Bureau” worked out six projects of sea and river passenger, cargo-passenger vessels of new generation. Four vessels of them are hydrofoils – “Kometa 120M”, “Valdai 45R”, “Albatros 120R”, “Tsiklon 250M” and two air-cavity vessels – SVK-100 and SVK-10.
