In 2015, the Company supported the Centre for Egyptological Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS). Thanks to its sponsorship, underwater archaeological investigations were carried out by the archaeologists in Alexandria.

During the expedition, underwater exploration was carried out in the location of Le Patriote's wreck (1798), a French ship transporting equipment for the scientific team of Napoleon Bonaparte's army, as well as the mapping of the ancient breakwater of Evnosta port, the Egypt's main commercial port in the Greco-Roman period.

Archeological data obtained as a result of the research will throw light on many aspects of ancient navigation.
