Krasnoe Sormovo Shipyard launched its fourth RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Pola Feodosia"

On the 17th of August 2018, Krasnoe Sormovo Shipyard located in Nizhny Novgorod (is included in the United Shipbuilding Corporation) launched its fourth multipurpose RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Pola Feodosia" with deadweight of 7730 t (building No. 06004).
 
The customer is PJSE "State Leasing Transport Company", the lessee is the shipping company "Pola Rise". In total, five RSD59 multipurpose dry-cargo vessels were ordered at Krasnoe Sormovo Shipyard and five more vessels were ordered at Nevskiy Shipyard.
 
The RSD59 prj. was designed by Marine Engineering Bureau.
 
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:
 
• 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 6945 tons (RSD49 project - 6021 tons), increased by 924 t;
• deadweight at the maximum draught of 4.53 m is 7709 t (RSD49 has 7143 t at maximum draught of 4.70 m ), increase is 566 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 R2 AUT1-ICS of Russian Maritime Register of Shipping and meets all the requirements of international conventions acted at the moment of the vessel's keel laying.
 
At the same time, according to the displacement of the RSD59 vessels, they are by far the largest of dry cargo vessels satisfying the dimensions of the Volga-Don shipping channel.
 
With a draft of 3.60 m characteristic for the VDSK river deadweight is 5320 tons, the largest deadweight at sea with a draft of 4.53 m is 7709 tons.
 
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 lead vessel (at Krasnoe Sormovo Shipyard) of RSD59 prj. (building No. 06001) "Pola Makaria" was laid down on 05.09.17. She was launched on 20.04.18 and accepted for operation on 24.05.2018.
Keel of the second vessel "Pola Filofea"(building No. 06002) was laid down on 19.09.17. She was launched on 08/06/2018. Accepted for operation on 05.07.2018.
Keel of the third vessel "Pola Sofia"(building No. 06003) was laid down on 25.09.17. She was launched on 12.07.2018. Accepted for operation on 08.08.2018.
Keel of the fourth vessel " Pola Feodosia"(building No. 06004) was laid down on 20.12.17. She was launched on 17.08.18.
Keel of the fifth vessel "Pola Fiva"(building No. 06005) was laid down on 25.12.17.

The Oka Shipyard has accepted for operation the seventh small-draught "double-hulled" tanker barge "Belmaks 7" of ROB20 prj. with deadweight 6000 t

On 29th of August 2018 Oka Shipyard (general director Vladimir Kulikov, shipyard is a part of UCL holding) has accepted for operation the seventh small-draught "double-hull" non-self-propelled tanker barge "Belmaks 7" of the ROB20 prj. with deadweight of 6000 t of class "O" of the type "Novaya Belskaya" (building number 4107).
 
Characteristics of the barge, namely 6000 t of cargo (at draught 2.75 m) with light weight of 880 tons provide to announce this project as an unique one.
 
A series of ten vessels is being built by leasing scheme for the Pola Raise shipping company (St. Petersburg); the customer (lessor) is the State Transport Leasing Company.
 
Prj. ROB20 is designed by Marine Engineering Bureau.
 
The contract for the construction of barges with operating draughts from 1.20 to 2.7 5m was signed on 31 of October 2017.
 
While designing the hull of ROB20 prj. with overall dimensions of 118 x 22.6 x 3.0 m, computational methods were widely used, which made it possible to "compensate" additional double bottom and double sides; so the carrying capacity is up to 6000 t with a draught 2.75 m. This is definitely a record for inland navigation vessels.
 
The carrying capacity is 4590 t at draught 2.20 m, and 3560 t at draught 1.80 m.
 
Years ago the world's first oil barges set the same records, they also had a very long and flat hull design with a minimum weight of the hull. In 1885, they were designed and built in Tsaritsyn and Saratov by an outstanding Russian engineer Vladimir Grigorevich Shukhov.
 
New barges are intended for transportation of oil with a flash point of 60 degrees and above; the main cargo is masut through the Belaya River and the Volga River, including reservoirs.
 
Therefore, the class of the Russian River Register is O 2.0.
 
As the tug-pushers are supposed to be the same "Ural" / "Volgar" type ones (at the first stage).
 
For information, old "Belskaya" type barges of the P-27 prj. with river class "P" in the initial single-hull version at draft of 1.80 m took on board 2,960 t of cargo, and at a maximum draft of 2.60 m took onboard 4590 t.
 
So one may observe an increase in the abilities of new ROB20 barges, both in capacity of transported cargo and in the vessel's class, plus the "double-hull" construction as a basic criterion.
 
The keel of the lead ROB20 vessel (building No. 4101) "Belmaks 1" was laid down on 22.11.2017. She was launched 19.04.2018. Vessel was accepted for operation on 17.05.2018.
The keel of the second vessel (building No. 4102) "Belmaks 2" was laid down on 30.11.2017. She was launched 22.05.2018. Vessel was accepted for operation on 31.05.2018.
The keel of the third vessel (building No. 4103) was laid down on 20.12.2017. She was launched 07.06.2018. Vessel was accepted for operation on 29.06.2018.
The keel of the fourth vessel (building No. 4104) "Belmaks 4"was laid down on 19.01.2018. She was launched 05.07.2018 Vessel was accepted for operation on 16.07.2018.
The keel of the fifth vessel (building No. 4105) "Belmaks 5"was laid down on 26.03.2018. She was launched 26.03.2018. Vessel was accepted for operation on 31.07.2018.
The keel of the sixth vessel (building No. 4106) "Belmaks 6"was laid down on 29.03.2018. She was launched 15.08.2018. Vessel was accepted for operation on 20.08.2018.
The keel of the seventh vessel (building No. 4107) "Belmaks 7" was laid down on 26.04.2018. She was launched 24.08.2018. Vessel was accepted for operation on 29.08.2018.
The keel of the eighth vessel (building No. 4108) "Belmaks 8" was laid down on 26.07.2018.

The Oka Shipyard has launched the sixth small-draught "double-hulled" tanker barge "Belmaks 6" of ROB20 prj. with deadweight of 6000 t



On 15th of August 2018 Oka Shipyard (general director Vladimir Kulikov, shipyard is a part of UCL holding) has launched the sixth small-draught "double-hull" non-self-propelled tanker barge "Belmaks 6" of the ROB20 prj. with deadweight of 6000 t of class "O" of the type "Novaya Belskaya" (building number 4106).
 
Characteristics of the barge, namely 6000 t of cargo (at draught 2.75 m) with light weight of 880 tons provide to announce this project as an unique one.
 
A series of ten vessels is being built by leasing scheme for the Pola Raise Shipping Company (St. Petersburg); the customer (lessor) is the State Transport Leasing Company.
 
Prj. ROB20 is designed by Marine Engineering Bureau.
 
The contract for the construction of barges with operating draughts from 1.20 to 2.7 5m was signed on 31 of October 2017.
 
While designing the hull of ROB20 prj. with overall dimensions of 118 x 22.6 x 3.0 m, computational methods were widely used, which made it possible to "compensate" additional double bottom and double sides; so the carrying capacity is up to 6000 t with a draught 2.75 m. This is definitely a record for inland navigation vessels.
 
The carrying capacity is 4590 t at draught 2.20 m, and 3560 t at draught 1.80 m.
 
Years ago the world's first oil barges set the same records, they also had a very long and flat hull design with a minimum weight of the hull. In 1885, they were designed and built in Tsaritsyn and Saratov by an outstanding Russian engineer Vladimir Grigorevich Shukhov.
 
New barges are intended for transportation of oil with a flash point of 60 degrees and above; the main cargo is masut through the Belaya River and the Volga River, including reservoirs.
 
Therefore, the class of the Russian River Register is O 2.0.
 
As the tug-pushers are supposed to be the same "Ural" / "Volgar" type ones (at the first stage).
 
For information, old "Belskaya" type barges of the P-27 prj. with river class "P" in the initial single-hull version at draft of 1.80 m took on board 2,960 t of cargo, and at a maximum draft of 2.60 m took onboard 4590 t.
 
So one may observe an increase in the abilities of new ROB20 barges, both in capacity of transported cargo and in the vessel's class, plus the "double-hull" construction as a basic criterion.
 
The keel of the lead ROB20 vessel (building No. 4101) "Belmaks 1" was laid down on 22.11.2017. She was launched 19.04.2018. Vessel was accepted for operation on 17.05.2018.
The keel of the second vessel (building No. 4102) "Belmaks 2" was laid down on 30.11.2017. She was launched 22.05.2018. Vessel was accepted for operation on 31.05.2018.
The keel of the third vessel (building No. 4103) was laid down on 20.12.2017. She was launched 07.06.2018. Vessel was accepted for operation on 29.06.2018.
The keel of the fourth vessel (building No. 4104) "Belmaks 4"was laid down on 19.01.2018. She was launched 05.07.2018 Vessel was accepted for operation on 16.07.2018.
The keel of the fifth vessel (building No. 4105) "Belmaks 5"was laid down on 26.03.2018. She was launched 26.03.2018. Vessel was accepted for operation on 31.07.2018.
The keel of the sixth vessel (building No. 4106) "Belmaks 6"was laid down on 29.03.2018. She was launched 15.08.2018.
The keel of the seventh vessel (building No. 4107) "Belmaks 7" was laid down on 26.04.2018.
The keel of the eighth vessel (building No. 4108) "Belmaks 8" was laid down on 26.07.2018.

Dry cargo vessel "Nadvoitsy" (prj. 964) was modernized for grain transportation by increasing height of cargo hatches' coaming

On 11th of the August 2018, significant modernization of dry cargo vessel"Nadvoitsy" was completed. The modernization was carried out for grain transportation providing and included increasing height of cargo hatches' coaming. Vessel is of 964 prj. ("Volgo-Don" type 1565 prj. after shortening).
 
The modernization was fulfilled at Hidrodinamik Shipyard, Tuzla, Turkey.
 
The modernization project was designed by Marine Engineering Bureau.
 
After modernization the vessel has got class notation KM L4 R2-RSN of Russian Maritime Register of Shipping.
 
As a result of modernization, the capacity of cargo holds has been increased from 3955 m³ to 4511 m³ (plus 586 m³ or 15%); that enhanced vessel's loading capacity for grain transportation (at draught 3.6m deadweight is 3375 t, with 100 tons of stores the specification SF increased upto 1.39 m³/t).
 
At the same time, the standard of general strength has grown significantly: the section modulus of hull due to coaming satisfies RS Rules with 23.9% reserve with today actual hull elements thickness. The section modulus of hull due to bottom satisfies RS Rules with 23.8% reserve.
 
The main works which were made by the shipyard:
 
• Increasing the height of the longitudinal coaming by inserting a vertical plate of 800 mm height;
• mounting of a longitudinal stiffener onto inserted plate made in the form of a welded T-beam;
• shifting the upper part of the existing longitudinal coaming and counterforces vertically upward together with all details;
• mounting of new counterforces;
• enlarging the foundations of the hatch covers' winches.
 
The material of the installed vertical inserted plate of coaming and its stiffener is D36 category shipbuilding steel with yield strength of 355 MPa.
 
After the modernization "Nadvoitsy" is a double-screw cargo vessel with 2 cargo holds, with double bottom and double sides, with engine room and deck house located aft.
 
The vessel is intended for transportation of general and dry bulk cargoes, including timber, large-sized cargo, ISO containers, dangerous goods and coal.
 
Main characteristics of the vessel:
 
Length overall, m - 105.30;
Length between PP, m - 102.08;
Breadthl, m - 16.50, m;
Depth, m - 5.50;
Draught (Summer freeboard), m - 3.847;
Deadweight (marine), t - 3886;
Holds capacity, m³ - 4541.
 
The modernized dry cargo vessel "Nadvoitsy" has technical-economic indicators that significantly exceed the vessels 's capabilities before modernization, which allows it to be efficiently operated in mixed river-sea and sea transportation.
