Russia’s Defense Ministry has received the PP-2005 pontoon bridge manufactured by the Oka Shipyard in the Nizhny Novgorod Region in the Volga area under the 2015 contract, the shipyard’s press office said. PP-2005 pontoon bridge is based on KAMAZ-63501 military truck.
     
The ceremony of accepting the pontoon bridge took place on November 10, the press office added.

"The contract has been fulfilled in strict compliance with the schedule. The PP-2005 pontoon bridge has become a new landmark in the history of the production of pontoons by the Oka Shipyard, which started more than 50 years ago," the press office said.

The PP-2005 pontoon bridge is based on the KAMAZ-63501 military truck. The pontoon park on the KAMAZ-63501 vehicle chassis is fitted with the reliable two-drum winch with the enlarged traction force that essentially reduces the time of loading the interior bays.

"Pontoons are designed to set up bridge and ferry crossings and provide maintenance for them. Work to upgrade the shipyard’s main manufacturing facilities and improve the design of the pontoon bridge has ensured its high-reliability and long service life," the press office added.

According to the press office, the Oka Shipyard produces pontoon bridges both for military and civilian applications, including for the exploration and use of oil and gas fields.

The Oka Shipyard constantly improves its pontoon bridges to meet the customers’ requirement
