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.

The Active Group shipping company operates the R-77 "Lenaneft 2039" tanker re-equipped to meet the requirements of MARPOL and Technical Regulations

Re-equipment was carried out by the Kuibyshev Repairing Base of Fleet (Tatarstan).
 
The project of modernization for "Lenaneft 2039" was developed by the Marine Engineering Bureau and includes double-bottom construction in the cargo area to ensure compliance with the requirements of Regulation 21 of MARPOL 73/78 (the vessel in its original condition did not have a double bottom) and the organization in the middle of two additional cargo tanks, used also as slop, instead of the existing dry compartment. A part from the hull works, modernization of cargo and ballast-drainage systems were subjected.
 
After the re-equipment, "Lenaneft 2039" has got a double hull (double bottom and double sides) along the entire length of the cargo area. The requirements of the RRR Rules for the stability of a damaged vessel are fulfilled for location of the side and bottom damages in any place along the whole vessel's length between nearby transverse bulkheads.
 
A lot of equipment is installed at all newly formed cargo (slop) tanks, including venting pipes with valves and flame arresters, pipelines and fittings of the tank cleaning system, pipelines and fittings of cargo and drainage systems. These tanks are equipped with a closed cargo level gauging system, portable HERMetic UTI level measuring gauge is used.
 
Ballast-bilge system was re-equipped by pipelines and armature in accordance with new ballast tank scheme. Sounding pipes with foot-rules and air pipes with vent heads with floats and screens are mounted at all new ballast tanks. Thickened plates are installed under lower ends of sounding pipes.
 
All newly formed double bottom spaces, cargo and slop tanks are equipped with openings, ladders and washing necks (cargo tanks).
 
Overall vessels dimensions are: 108.60 x 14.80 x 4.40 m (length x breadth x depth).

The Oka Shipyard has accepted for operation fifth small-draught "double-hulled" oil-loading barge "Belmaks 5" of ROB20 prj. with deadweight of 6.000 t

On 31th of July 2018 Oka Shipyard (general director Vladimir Kulikov, shipyard is a part of UCL holding) has accepted for operation fifth small-draught "double-hull" non-self-propelled oil barge "Belmaks 5" of the ROB20 prj. with deadweight of 6000 t of class "O" of the type "Novaya Belskaya" (building number 4105).
 
Characteristics of the barge, namely 6000 t of cargo (at draft 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 take on board 2,960 t of cargo, and at a maximum draft of 2.60 m take 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.
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.

The first block of the lead cargo passenger automobile railway ferry prj. CNF11CPD for Valino-Kholmsk line left the slipway section

According to the press service of the Amur Shipyard (part of the USC), the first block of the future cargo-passenger automobile and railway ferry of the project CNF11CPD (building number 00300), being built for the line Vanino-Kholmsk, weighing 300 tons, left the slipway section.
 
"As a result of almost four-hour operation, the bow section of the ferry under construction on special transfer tracks was moved to an open slip. Followed by her four more blocks of the future ferry were sent. The work of the transport and descent complex was led by Alexei Sadovnikov, who had in order representatives of the company's auxiliary services: power engineers, riggers, mechanics.
 
"We tried our best to afford them with metalwork equipment, although it was quite difficult," says Alexander Merinov, the project manager of ferry construction. - Two bow thrusters, anchor and mooring mechanisms are located in the bow block of the ferry. The vessel being built will be powered ice class -the Arc5, is designed to operate in difficult ice conditions, is built at a temperature of -40 degrees Celsius. The stem post of the vessel and the strengthened bow are able to chop ice with a thickness of 1 m at a speed of 3 knots. This is the reason for the large weight of the structure, which in general, with all associated mechanisms and elements, is about 750 tons. All the main pressure for the future vessel when working in ice conditions will lie exactly on the first, bow block.
 
At this time there are 3 blocks on the building berth, in different range of condition, in which the main engines will be located. Supplies of mechanisms are expected in the very near future. At the same time, shipbuilders will continue locksmith works on the blocks, installation of foundations for the assembling of equipment and systems.
 
Considering the fact that the docking of the ferry blocks will be during cold season, special actions for sheltering and heating of the joints are developed, - said the senior builder of the order "300" Sergei Poleshchuk. - a part from that, from time to time there is a need to heat the vessels facilities to continue production of welding inside the ferry.
 
By mid August, the Amur shipbuilders should complete the roll-out and install five blocks of the future ferry on an open building berth in order to begin full-sized works on connection of the blocks of the Sakhalin ferry with the beginning of the Autumn".
 
According to their characteristics, the new ferries of the CNF11CPD project will significantly leave behind those already operating on the Sakhalin line.
 
Each of the new ferries of the CNF11CPD project can simultaneously take on board 32 wagons plus 12 auto wagons or 39 auto wagons (if there are no wagons on the main deck), as well as 200 passengers. The total carrying capacity of the Vanino-Kholmsk passage will increase up to 55%.
 
The need of renewal of the fleet is caused by the worn-out technical conditions of the existing vessels (average age is 29 years), high accident risks and operating costs (the average percentage of lost time of ferries due to repair works is 25%). The ferry passage of Vanino-Kholmsk provides more than 75% of all freight traffic between the island and the mainland and about 25% of all passenger transportations. According to the experts forecasts, in the next three years cargo turnover may increase by 25%.
 
The new ferries of the CNF11CPD project will allow the Sakhalin producers to ship products to the mainland in time, provide food security and expand the possibilities of transporting certain types of cargo.
 
The customer is "State transport leasing company" (GTLK).
 
Project documentation of the vessel in the construction was developed by the Marine Engineering Bureau, design and operational documents and technological documentation - Vympel Central Design Bureau.
 
The vessels of the CNF11CPD project are designed for transportation of railway wagons of the Russian standard with a gauge of 1520 mm, all types of vehicles, including cargo vehicles with 12 (13.5) m semi-trailer trucks and container platforms, various wheeled vehicles and containers on roll trailers, up to 30 ref containers, as well as dangerous goods of classes 1.1-1.6; 1.4S; 2.1-2.3; 3 (in full); 4.1-4.3; 5.1; 6.1 (in full); 8 (in full); 9 in accordance with the provisions of the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG) and the National Maritime Dangerous Goods Regulations (Rules of the RID). Transportation of at least 32 railway wagons or 27 auto wagons on the main deck, 12 auto wagons on the lower deck and about 9 cars (1.5 tons). On the vessel there are places for accommodation and transportation for 200 passengers (112 cabins and 88 seats in saloon).
 
Project CNF11CPD new generation car-railway ferryboat for the Vanino-Kholmsk line in accordance with technical specification of this concept provides in comparison with the existing "Sakhalin" type vessels:
 
• enhancedcargo capacity (truck cars capacity is 2 times bigger);
• weather restrictions absence (unrestricted sailing region);
• ability of working in severe ice conditions (at speed of 6-8 kn in 80 cm ice and speed about 3,0 kn in 1.0 m ice);
• ability to carry out independent (several times per day) moorings without towing assistance; ability for long reverse movement through constrained water area of the port of Kholmsk;
• ability to keep up daily cycle of round voyage (operation speed is 18 kn);
• 2-hours staying for loading-unloading operations.
 
The number of passengers (200 people) accepted in the new project reflects the peak line need at a season summer vacations and is set according to the offer of the Sakhalin Region Government; it is essentially important to provide solving of a social problem of recreation providing for the region's population From 200 passengers 13 ones at double cabins with water closets, 96 ones at four-berth cabins and 88 ones at saloon chairs.
 
The keel of the lead CNF11CPD vessel (building No. 00300) was laid down on 29.0617.
The keel of the second vessel (building No. 00301) was laid down on 29.06.2017.
