The company has checked Dmitry Mendeleev's primary propulsion system, the functioning of the navigation equipment, and control systems.
Further tests will check the ship's storage and load-/unloading systems.
The 100 m-long and 19 m-wide Dmitry Mendeleev will offer 5,800 m3 of storage capacity.
The vessel has the Arc4 ice-class, meaning she can sail independently through 80 cm thick ice.
Dmitry Mendeleev will join Gazprom Neft's fleet in the second half of 2021, providing bunkering services in the Baltic Sea (chiefly to Marshal Rokossovsky, Rosmorport's dual-fuel ro-ro that connects the ports of Ust-Luga and Baltiysk).
The ship's digital system makes it possible to control Dmitry Mendeleev by a single crew member directly from the navigation bridge.
