In this project Marine Technics acted not only as a programme and project developer and equipment supplier, but also as a contractor for installation performed by its Service Department.

Refitted vessels navigate on 140km line Kazan-Bolgary and have already featured by effectiveness and reliability of new engines, operational costs reduction, maneuverability and passenger comfort (noise and vibration reduction) improvement.
