The fifth RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Petrotrans-5905" of 8144 t deadweight was launched



On 26th of August 2020 the fifth RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Petrotrans-5905" of 8144 t deadweight (building number 5905 was launched.
 
PJSE "State Leasing Transport Company" is a Customer, shipping company "Petrotrans" is a lessee.
 
The RSD59 prj. was designed by Marine Engineering Bureau.
 
Oka Shipyard has signed contract for more 15 RSD59 vessels(the first five are for the Petrotrans shipping company, next ten are for the "Astrol" shipping company).
 
RSD59 vessels refer to the "Volga-Don Max" type due to MEB internal classification. They have maximum possible dimensions for the Volga-Don Canal.
 
Vessels of the series can be operated for transportations of general, bulk, timber, grain and large-sized cargoes, dangerous goods of 1.4S, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.1, 8, 9 classes of IMDG Code and cargoes of category B of IMSBC Code. Sailing regions are Mediterranean, Caspian, Black, Baltic, White, North Seas, including voyages around Europe and to Irish Sea in winter.
 
The new dry-cargo project RSD59, which is constructed in "super-full" ship lines with two dry cargo holds, one of which has a record length for Volgo-Don Max vessels, is the successor of the three-hold RSD49 series.
 
Advantages of the RSD59 project in comparison with the best of the previously constructed dry cargo vessels of the Volga-Don Max class of the RSD49 project (by the example of m/v "Pola Fiva" with increased marine function):
 
• the existence of a long L = 77.35 m hold (RSD49 vessel has L = 52 m cargo hold ) that allows transportation of oversized and heavy cargo; this is relevant for the market of the Caspian region countries;
• the hold's height is increased up to 9000 mm, that is 620 mm bigger than for RSD49 project. Such height allows to load 9'6'' containers ("high cube containers"), 3 ones in single stack;
• deadweight at draught of 3.60 m is 5320 t (RSD49 has 4507 t), increase is 813 t;
• deadweight at a draught of 4.20 m 6944 tons (RSD49 project has 6021 t), increased by 923 t;
• deadweight at the maximum draught of 4.706 m is 8144 t (RSD49 has 7143 t at maximum draught of 4.70 m), increase is 1000 t;
• removable type hatch covers are installed. Opening and closing of each section is operated with the help of a special frame crane, which is located in the area of the front bulkhead of the residential superstructure;
• movement and controllability are provided by two rudder propeller units (better maneuverability in the narrow waters, more cargo space due to the reduction of size of engine room).
 
The project is designed for a class notation KM Ice2(hull; power) R2 AUT1-ICS BWM(T) CONT (deck, cargo holds Nos.1,2) DG (bulk, pack) of Russian Maritime Register of Shipping and meets all the requirements of international conventions acted at the moment of the vessel's keel laying.
 
In this case, RSD59 vessels' deadweight is the largest for dry cargo vessels satisfying the dimensions of the Volga-Don Shipping Channel.
 
For characteristic for the VDSC draught of 3.60 m, river deadweight is 5320 t; the largest marine deadweight for draught 4.706 m is 8144 t.
 
The maximum length is 141.0 m, the overall width is 16.98 m, depth is 6.00 m.
 
The capacity of cargo holds is 11400 cubic m.
 
Both cargo holds are box-shaped, smooth-walled, and convenient at cargo operations and placing the goods without stowage. Their dimensions are 77.35 x 12.25 x 9.0 m and 27.03 x 12.25 x 9.0 m.
 
The operating speed is 10.5 knots.
 
Two medium-speed diesels (main engine) of 1200 kW each use heavy fuel oil with viscosity of IFO380 Heavy fuel stores are placed in deep-tanks in area of the ER fore bulkhead, separated from outside water by double bottom and double sides.
 
Sea sailing autonomy is 20 day.
 
Crew consists of 11 people, total places onboard are 14. Sanitary and pilot cabins are provided.
 
Designed vessel hull's life term is 24 years. The double bottom is designed for distributed load with intensity of 12 tons per square meter, and also allows to use 16 t bucket grab.
 
Keel of the RSD59 lead vessel (at Oka Shipyard) "Petrotrans-5901" (building No. 5901) was laid down on 30.07.19. She was launched on 03.03.20 and accepted for operation on 29.05.2020.

Krasnoe Sormovo launched the nineteenth RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Pola Marina" of 8144 t deadweight

On 07.08.2020 Krasnoe Sormovo Shipyard (director Mikhail Pershin) launched its nineteenth multipurpose RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Pola Marina" of 8144 t deadweight (building No. 06019).
 
The head vessel of the series m\v "Pola Makaria" was included in the list of Significant Ships of 2018 of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA).
 
The customer is PJSE "State Leasing Transport Company", the lessee is the shipping company "Pola Rise".

The RSD59 prj. was designed by Marine Engineering Bureau.
 
Krasnoe Sormovo Shipyard has already built 17 multipurpose RSD59 dry cargo vessels and 13 more ones are at different step of construction, plus 10 are in option.
 
For information: Nevsky Shipyard has put into operation two RSD59 vessels, the third one was launched and 2 more ones are under construction.
 
Oka Shipyard has signed contract for more 15 RSD59 vessels. Two are accepted for operation. The third is departed for running trials, the fourth is launched.
 
By other words, the total order for RSD59 vessels is 60 vessels for the moment (22 ones has been constructed, 28 are in work, and 10 are in option).
 
RSD59 vessels refer to the "Volga-Don Max" type due to MEB internal classification. They have maximum possible dimensions for the Volga-Don Canal.
 
Vessels of the series can be operated for transportations of general, bulk, timber, grain and large-sized cargoes, dangerous goods of 1.4S, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.1, 8, 9 classes of IMDG Code and cargoes of category B of IMSBC Code. Sailing regions are Mediterranean, Caspian, Black, Baltic, White, North Seas, including voyages around Europe and to Irish Sea in winter. The new dry-cargo project RSD59, which is constructed in "super-full" ship lines with two dry cargo holds, one of which has a record length for Volgo-Don Max vessels, is the successor of the three-hold RSD49 series.
 
Advantages of the RSD59 project in comparison with the best of the previously constructed dry cargo vessels of the Volga-Don Max class of the RSD49 project (by the example of m/v "Pola Fiva" with increased marine function):
 
• the existence of a long L = 77.35 m hold (RSD49 vessel has L = 52 m cargo hold ) that allows transportation of oversized and heavy cargo; this is relevant for the market of the Caspian region countries;
• the hold's height is increased up to 9000 mm, that is 620 mm bigger than for RSD49 project. Such height allows to load 9'6'' containers ("high cube containers"), 3 ones in single stack;
• deadweight at draught of 3.60 m is 5320 t (RSD49 has 4507 t), increase is 813 t;
• deadweight at a draught of 4.20 m 6944 tons (RSD49 project has 6021 t), increased by 923 t;
• deadweight at the maximum draught of 4.706 m is 8144 t (RSD49 has 7143 t at maximum draught of 4.70 m ), increase is 1000 t;
• removable type hatch covers are installed. Opening and closing of each section is operated with the help of a special frame crane, which is located in the area of the front bulkhead of the residential superstructure;
• movement and controllability are provided by two rudder propeller units (better maneuverability in the narrow waters, more cargo space due to the reduction of size of engine room).
 
The project is designed for a class notation KM Ice2(hull; power) R2 AUT1-ICS BWM(T) CONT (deck, cargo holds Nos.1,2) DG (bulk, pack) of Russian Maritime Register of Shipping and meets all the requirements of international conventions acted at the moment of the vessel's keel laying.
 
In this case, RSD59 vessels' deadweight is the largest for dry cargo vessels satisfying the dimensions of the Volga-Don Shipping Channel.
 
For characteristic for the VDSC draught of 3.60 m, river deadweight is 5320 t; the largest marine deadweight for draught 4.706 m is 8144 t.
 
The maximum length is 141.0 m, the overall width is 16.98 m, depth is 6.00 m.
 
The capacity of cargo holds is 11400 cubic m.
 
Both cargo holds are box-shaped, smooth-walled, and convenient at cargo operations and placing the goods without stowage. Their dimensions are 77.35 x 12.25 x 9.0 m and 27.03 x 12.25 x 9.0 m.
 
The operating speed is 10.5 knots.
 
Two medium-speed diesels (main engine) of 1200 kW each use heavy fuel oil with viscosity of IFO380 Heavy fuel stores are placed in deep-tanks in area of the ER fore bulkhead, separated from outside water by double bottom and double sides.
 
Sea sailing autonomy is 20 day.
 
Crew consists of 11 people, total places onboard are 14. Sanitary and pilot cabins are provided.
 
Designed vessel hull's life term is 24 years. The double bottom is designed for distributed load with intensity of 12 tons per square meter, and also allows to use 16 t bucket grab.

The second RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Petrotrans-5902" of 8144 t deadweight was accepted for operation for the company "Petrotrans"

On 03.07.2020 the second multipurpose RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Petrotrans-5902" of 8144 t (building No. 5902) was accepted for operation for the company"Petrotrans".
 
The customer is PJSE "State Leasing Transport Company", the lessee is the shipping company "Petrotrans ".
 
The RSD59 prj. was designed by Marine Engineering Bureau.
 
Oka Shipyard is building 15 RSD59 vessels (the first five are for the shipping company "Petrotrans", the next ten - for the shipping company "Astrol").
 
RSD59 vessels refer to the "Volga-Don Max" type due to MEB internal classification. They have maximum possible dimensions for the Volga-Don Canal.
 
Vessels of the series can be operated for transportations of general, bulk, timber, grain and large-sized cargoes, dangerous goods of 1.4S, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.1, 8, 9 classes of IMDG Code and cargoes of category B of IMSBC Code. Sailing regions are Mediterranean, Caspian, Black, Baltic, White, North Seas, including voyages around Europe and to Irish Sea in winter.
 
The new dry-cargo project RSD59, which is constructed in "super-full" ship lines with two dry cargo holds, one of which has a record length for Volgo-Don Max vessels, is the successor of the three-hold RSD49 series.
 
Advantages of the RSD59 project in comparison with the best of the previously constructed dry cargo vessels of the Volga-Don Max class of the RSD49 project (by the example of m/v "Pola Fiva" with increased marine function):
 
• the existence of a long L = 77.35 m hold (RSD49 vessel has L = 52 m cargo hold ) that allows transportation of oversized and heavy cargo; this is relevant for the market of the Caspian region countries;
• the hold's height is increased up to 9000 mm, that is 620 mm bigger than for RSD49 project. Such height allows to load 9'6'' containers ("high cube containers"), 3 ones in single stack;
• deadweight at draught of 3.60 m is 5320 t (RSD49 has 4507 t), increase is 813 t;
• deadweight at a draught of 4.20 m 6944 tons (RSD49 project has 6021 t), increased by 923 t;
• deadweight at the maximum draught of 4.706 m is 8144 t (RSD49 has 7143 t at maximum draught of 4.70 m ), increase is 1000 t;
• removable type hatch covers are installed. Opening and closing of each section is operated with the help of a special frame crane, which is located in the area of the front bulkhead of the residential superstructure;
• movement and controllability are provided by two rudder propeller units (better maneuverability in the narrow waters, more cargo space due to the reduction of size of engine room).
 
The project is designed for a class notation KM Ice2(hull; power) R2 AUT1-ICS BWM(T) CONT (deck, cargo holds Nos.1,2) DG (bulk, pack) of Russian Maritime Register of Shipping and meets all the requirements of international conventions acted at the moment of the vessel's keel laying.
 
In this case, RSD59 vessels' deadweight is the largest for dry cargo vessels satisfying the dimensions of the Volga-Don Shipping Channel.
 
For characteristic for the VDSC draught of 3.60 m, river deadweight is 5320 t; the largest marine deadweight for draught 4.706 m is 8144 t.
 
The maximum length is 141.0 m, the overall width is 16.98 m, depth is 6.00 m.

Two medium-speed diesels (main engine) of 1200 kW each use heavy fuel oil with viscosity of IFO380 Heavy fuel stores are placed in deep-tanks in area of the ER fore bulkhead, separated from outside water by double bottom and double sides.
 
Sea sailing autonomy is 20 day.
