Adam, I'm not 100% sure, but possibly you're right. If we compare photos, then I don't see any great difference, but I'm not an expert. Approximately the same tonnage, also built in Rauma, Finland. Keldysh is 7 years older, but it seems that both vessels are of the same type. Most likely that should slightly differ from each other in terms of equipment and, possibly, design.

Akademik Mstislav Keldysh is not the sister vessel. She's definitely different
