The vessel was built in accordance with project № 03060. Earlier «Nevsky Shipyard» had built and delivered to the customer «OMS-Shipping» (Kazakhstan) 4 barges-platforms built according to this project (the last barge, OMS-504, was delivered to the customer on the 29th of May of this year). But nevertheless, significant changes of the project were made during the construction of a new vessel at the request of the customer. The necessity of these changes resulted from the operation conditions this vessel is intended for. However, the construction was finished in a due time as per the terms of construction established by the ship-building contract and it took 7 months.
