On June 28, the seventh Project 3052 buoy tender (yard number 5204), ordered by the YeniseiRechTrans Administration, was launched at the Samus Shipyard.

The new vessel was named after Mr. Valdemar Khan. Valdemar Vasilievich Khan has made a significant contribution to the development of river transportation system and economics of Krasnoyarsk Krai. Through all his career, he has been inextricably linked to the Krasnoyarsk river industry companies.
From 1965 until 1981, Mr. Khan had held positions of Deputy Director of Krasnoyarsk River Port Cargo District, Chairman of the Union Committee, Deputy Director of Krasnoyarsk River Port for Cargo and Commercial Operations and had been elected the Communist Party Secretary of Krasnoyarsk River Port. In 1984 Valdemar Vasilievich was elected Deputy Chairman of Yenisei River Union Committee and became its chairman in 1989. Mr. Khan’s contributions were cited by numerous honorary mentions, certificates of merit and honorary distinctions.
In order to commemorate the amazing career of Valdemar Vasilievich Khan, Yenisei River Union Executive Committee have approached YeniseiRechTrans Administration about naming one of the project 3052 vessels, being built for YeniseiRechTrans Administration, as VALDEMAR KHAN.
Mr. Khan’s wife, Galina Khan, became a godmother of the buoy tender.
“He just came here to visit his friends and stayed in Krasnoyarsk for 55 years, fifty of which he worked for the Yenisei River Shipping Company”, recalled Mrs. Khan.
Project 3052 buoy tenders are being constructed as part of the state’s Transportation System Development Program. The buoy tenders are designed to maintain inland waterway channels and aids to navigation.
