Season’s greetings


Respected Colleagues, Dear Friends,

Summarizing the initial 2019 results, I heartily thank RS clients and partners for cooperation and trust. Our team highly appreciates your commitment to the high standards of safety during construction and operation of marine and offshore assets. We in our turn continue to consistently enhance our Rules and Guidelines and optimise our services with due consideration for advanced technologies.

Our joined efforts enabled RS to participate in ambitious projects of cutting-edge Arctic LNG carriers and tankers, powerful icebreakers and modern fishing fleet. I am delighted to witness well-established demand for RS services as well as steady increase of the RS orderbook.

An effective dialogue has always been the indispensable condition in our cooperation. Keeping you timely informed on the updates, analysing your feedback and jointly consulting on complicated technical issues is a substantial part of our activities. Together we forward shipping and bolster industry outlook. I am confident that 2020 will uncover new horizons and bring us inspiration for new ideas and insights.

With my cordial season’s greetings, whether at homely home or during a fascinating trip I am wishing you many joyful moments.

Konstantin Palnikov

Director General, FAI Russian Maritime Register of Shipping
