Krasnoe Sormovo launched the twenty first RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Alfa Atlant" of 8144 t deadweight

On 30.09.2020 Krasnoe Sormovo Shipyard (director Mikhail Pershin) launched its twenty first multipurpose RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Alfa Atlant" of 8144 t deadweight (building No. 06021).
 
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 "Alfa".
 
The RSD59 prj. was designed by Marine Engineering Bureau.
 
Krasnoe Sormovo Shipyard has already built 19 multipurpose RSD59 dry cargo vessels, 2 are afloat and 8 more ones are at different step of construction, plus 11 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. Four are accepted for operation. The fifth and sixth are launched.
 
By other words, the total order for RSD59 vessels is 60 vessels for the moment (25 ones has been constructed, 24 are in work, and 11 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, RSD49 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 Amur Shipyard sent for further construction the lead ITF for the "Vanino-Kholmsk" line of the CNF11CPD prj. "Alexander Deev" for completion

On September 26, 2020, the Amur Shipyard (General Director Vladimir Kulakov) sent to Vladivostok for completion at its delivery base the head cargo-passenger road-rail icebreaker type ferry of the unlimited navigation area of the new generation for the Vanino - Kholmsk line of the CNF11CPD project Alexander Deev (construction number 00300). The shipyards Instagram reports.
 
The technological operation of escorting the vessel from Maly Silinskoe Lake to Amur went smoothly and in full compliance with the regulations.
 
According to Gleb Ilinykh, the responsible deliverer of order No. 300, "Alexander Deev" will be on its way to the very lower reaches of the Amur for two weeks. "We hope for a favorable forecast for both the Amur level and the weather," he said.
 
"Now the ferry has 64% readiness, the main mechanisms are installed on it, about a hundred kilometers of the main cable are pulled. The vessel is equipped with a freight elevator, side ramp, stern ramp, and outboard ladders. Most of the devices have already been installed, tested and accepted by the customer and the Register. On the delivery base, work is to be done on the formation of rooms within the order, testing and painting of ballast tanks, installation of stern and side devices, freight and passenger elevators. This will be followed by preparation and carrying out of mooring tests ", - said the responsible deliverer of order No. 300.
 
The customer is PJSE "State Transport Leasing Company".
 
Project documentation for the vessel under construction was developed by the Marine Engineering Bureau, working-design and technological documentation by Vympel Design Bureau.
 
The launch of the fully formed hull of the second ferry of the CNF11CPD project "Vasily Oshchepkov" is scheduled for autumn 2020.
 
CNF11CPD project of the car-railway-cargo-passenger new generation ferryboat for the Vanino-Kholmsk line provides in comparison with the existing "Sakhalin" type vessels:
 
• enhanced cargo capacity (truck cars capacity is 2 times bigger);
• weather restrictions absence (unrestricted sailing region);
• ability of working in severe ice conditions (speed is 6-8 kn at 80 cm ice and about 3 kn at 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.
 
Transportation is foreseen of at least of 32 railway wagons or 27 car trains on the main deck, 12 car trains on the lower deck and about 9 cars (1.5 tons).
 
The new CNF11CPD ferry boats will allow the Sakhalin producers to forward products to the mainland in time; will provide food security and expand possibility of transportation for certain types of cargo.
 
The number of passengers (200 people) accepted in the new project reflects the peak line need at a season of 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 200 passengers distribution is as follows: 16 ones at double cabins with water closets, 96 ones at four-berth cabins with water closets and 88 ones at saloon chairs.
 
The new concept is the result of a series of studies conducted in 2012-2013 by the Marine Engineering Bureau in collaboration with leading domestic and foreign scientific institutes, including Aker Arctic Technology (recommendations for contours, tests in the ice pool), Central Research Institute of the Marine Fleet (examination of technical solutions for all stages, formation of contours, economic calculations and modeling of operation), Krylov State Scientific Center (towing tests, self-propelled, nautical, as well as testing in ice basin), design bureau of the carriage facilities of JSC Russian Railways (checking the possibility of transporting rolling stock by ferry).
 
CNF11CPD characteristics in ice conditions according to the results of tests in the pool are: the maximum ice permeability at V = 3 knots forward will be 1.16 meters, at a speed of V = 6 knots it will be 0.84 meters, in reverse with a speed of V = 1.5 knots will be 0.68 m.
 
In addition, the bow and stern extremities are structurally designed for a higher ice category (Arc 7).
 
Together with the icebreaking at the level of the Icebreaker6 icebreaker, this allows (unlike the existing vessels) independent operation of the new ferry in severe ice conditions on a short passage (up to about 30 miles in the vicinity of Vanino). In turn, this will allow to avoid ferry's significant downtime in anticipation of general icebreaking assistance, or excessive costs in case of individual assistance.
 
At one time, the ferry was built to serve the railway transportation, but recently, the increasing part of the ferry routes began to take the vehicles transport. A new type of cargo (heavy trailers (trucks) and cars) has appeared. In connection with the construction of the Lidoga-Vanino highway, the share of road transport will increase. In addition to transporting cars and trailers, shippers have another potentially new type of cargo for the ferry line: containers and roll trailers with heavy equipment. Therefore, while maintaining the function of transporting railroad cars (the length of rail tracks is 440 linear meters at 420 on the existing one), the capacity for cars has doubled (740 linear meters against 394 on the existing one). As a result, 39 new trucks with semi-trailers (12-13.5 m length ) and an additional 9 cars can be accommodated on the new vessel.
 
In addition to the stern cargo handling scheme, which is definitely tied to the ports of Vanino and Kholmsk terminals, an on-board ramp is installed for working with rolling equipment directly to the pier, which allows the use of a new vessel (for example, for commercial flights to Japan).
 
The keel of the lead CNF11CPD vessel (building No. 00300) Alexander Deev was laid down on 29.0617. She was launched on 01.08.2019.
The keel of the second vessel (building No. 00301) "Vasiliy Oshepkov" was laid down on 29.06.2017. Launch is planned on autumn 2020.

The fourth RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Petrotrans-5904" of 8144 t deadweight was accepted for operation



On 24.09.20 the first RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Astrol-1" of 8144 t deadweight (building number 5906) was launched for the "Astrol" shipping company.
 
PJSE "State Leasing Transport Company" is a Customer, shipping company "Astrol" 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). The first four vessels have been accepted for operation.
 
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.

Head of Rosmorrechflot Alexander Poshivai inspected the construction of MPSV12 projects "Beysug" and "Piltun"



According to Rosmorrechflot, on September 18, 2020, Alexander Poshivai, Head of the Federal Agency for Maritime and River Transport, inspected the construction progress of multifunctional small-draught arctic salvage tugboats of the MPSV12 project "Beysug" and "Piltun" (building numbers 1203 and 1204).
 
FSD "State Customer Management of Maritime Transport Development Programs" of the Federal Agency of Maritime and River Transport of the Russian Federation is a Customer. There are 4 vessels in the series.
 
Vessel's project was designed by Marine Engineering Bureau.
 
Anatoly Mishanov, Director of the State Customer Directorate and Rosmorrechflot Head Alexander Poshivay inspected the production sites where the shipyard is building multifunctional small-draught arctic salvage tugboats of the MPSV12 project "Beisug" and "Piltun".
 
The visit to the shipyard ended with a working meeting on the completion of the existing contracts by the shipyard, which was held under the leadership of Alexander Poshivaya. At the meeting, in particular, the high degree of readiness of the third vessel "Beysug" was noted and the topic of completion of supplies of equipment for its equipping was touched upon.
 
MPSV12 multifunctional salvage tugboat (MSV) is a small-draught (working diapason is of 3.2-4.5 m) vessel with Arctic ice Arc 5 class, with inclined stem, with double-tier long forecastle, with ER located in middle, with diesel power system, with 2 controllable-pitch propellers, with 2 bow thrusters and single aft one.
 
MSV MPSV12 is intended the following operations:
 
• patrolling and emergency salvage duty at the navigation regions, fishing regions, oil and gas marine recovery regions in accordance with class notation;
• search and assistance for vessels in distress;
• salvage activity; ship-repairing; diving works at the depth till 60 m; underwater technical works including cutting & welding;
• towage of emergency vessels and objects to the place of refuge, also fulfillment of marine towage of vessels and floating objects, including ice towages;
• fire-extinguishing of burning oil on water surface, elimination of marine oil spills (LARN);
• search and investigation of potentially dangerous underwater objects;
• search, salvage, evacuation operations for people, rendering medical aid for people;
• give assistance in fire combating on floating objects and coastal ones accessible from seaside;
• delivery of general and liquid cargoes;
• transportation of personnel;
• control of remotely operated uninhabited deep-sea device of working class with 3000 m submergence depth.
 
The vessel was designed due to Russian Maritime Registry of Shipping class notation of KM Arc 5 AUT2 FF2WS DYNPOS-2 Salvage ship.
 
Principal dimensions of the MPSV12 vessel are as follows:
 
length overall about 79.85 m;
length between perpendiculars 73.39 m;
breadth overall about 17.36 m;
breadth (due DWL) 16.80 m;
depth 6.70 m;
draught DWL/max 3.20/4.50 m.
 
Marine Engineering Bureau carried out complex of investigations during MPSV12 prj. creation, because occurrence of complicated functions' combinations leads to mutual conflicting tendencies when hull forms, principal particulars and other prosperities of MSV are accepted. For example, propulsion complex should be satisfied to five operational modes requirements simultaneously:
 
• operation with service speed (about 70% from full speed) which is usual for patrolling in the set region and for normal voyages;
• full speed navigation at rescue/salvage operations (free-running high speed achievement that provides time reduction of approach to vessel in distress);
• towage of floating objects (providing of necessary pulling effort while towing operations in progress);
• providing of sufficient pulling effort for refloating emergency grounded vessel;
• ice navigation, including icebreaking operations (providing of required power capacity according to RMRS Rules due to accepted ice category of vessel for ice navigation vessels).
 
Thus the draught restrictions play the main role; they are actual for considerable part of marine water areas of the country. 23 marine ports (from 66 ones) set 5 m restrictions for vessels' draught. It's impossible to provide salvage operations without usage of shallow-draught multipurpose vessels at these ports.
 
For example, such vessels are required for providing access for the following ports:
 
• in the Black sea - ports of Caucasus;
• in the Azov Sea - Kerch strait, gulf of Taganrog, and also at the marine part of Volga-Don Shipping Canal (Azov and Rostov-on-Don ports), Temryuk port;
• in the Caspian Sea - region of Makhachkala port, Volga-Caspian Canal, Olya port, Astrakhan port;
• in the Baltic Sea - eastern part of Gulf of Finland (Vyborg, Saimaa Canal), Kaliningrad Gulf;
• ports of eastern coast of Kamchatka, including Gulf of Anadyr.
 
Besides if emergency vessel is aground it is desirable to have minimal draught for MSV. By such way MSV can approach closer to object and in some cases can even bypass emergency vessel from the edge of deep-water fairway.
 
It is clear that for vessels with limited draught, free-running speed and propulsive effort is limited by the condition of ME power full recalculation. In turn ME power is determined by limitation of propellers diameter for prevention of their aeration and cavitation.
 
As a result, unique characteristics were got for Arctic ARC5 ice class vessel of such dimension, as follows: deadweight is 1820 / 320 tons while draught is 4.50 / 3.20 m, autonomy is 30 days for fuel, water and provisions stores.
 
Cargo deck area is 430 sq.m. Permissible local distributed loading in the cargo are of the main deck is 5 t/sq.m. Permissible container concentrated loading is 30 t.
 
Two diesel engines with the maximal continuous rate of 2600 kW each are used as main engines. Speed on the deep water for fresh painted hull (without fouling) is not less than 11.2 kn at draught of 3.2 m and 85% of ME capacity.
 
Power plant includes two auxiliary 750 kW diesels generators, two 1600 kW shaft generator and single 125 kW emergency generator. Rudder-propeller complex includes two ice controllable-pitch propellers in nozzles and two streamlined semi-pendant semi-balanced rudders with flap.
 
Two bow thrusters and single aft one of the "screw in a tube" type with a controllable-pitch propeller are foreseen for ensuring requirements of dynamical positioning Dynpos-2, and also for improvement of controllability at low speeds, during passing narrow waters and during mooring. Thruster capacity of is of 790 kW each.
