Tehran, IRNA – The Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Line Group (IRISL Group) has placed an order for a ship to be manufactured in Russia.

A contract was signed in Russia’s Astrakhan on Wednesday for the ship to be made in Russia based on an order placed by IRISL’s regional office in Solyanka, a port near Astrakhan where port operations are mostly controlled by the IRISL.

Iran’s consul general in Russia’s port of Astrakhan Mehdi Akouchakian said after signing of the contract that Russian and Iranian government agencies have made continuous efforts in recent months to upgrade trade and economic relations between the two countries.

Akouchakian appreciated efforts by the IRISL Group and regional authorities in Solyanka to develop transportation networks in the Caspian Sea.

He said Solyanka port authorities’ decision to order a new ship is sign that Iran and Russia are boosting their ties, adding that the ship’s addition to IRISL’s fleet will help cut the final price of Iranian exports in the region.

IRISL’s CEO Mohammad Reza Modarres Khiabani, who attended the ceremony to sign the ship manufacturing contract via video conference, said that such deals can enhance trade and transportation ties between Russia and Iran.

The Iranian official urged Iran’s consulate in Astrakhan to help speed up infrastructure projects that could facilitate loading and unloading operations in Solyanka.
