The President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliev took part in the solemn ceremony.
 
CJSE "Azerbaijan Caspian Shipping Company" is a customer.
 
New RST12C tankers have a boosted "Caspian" function:
 
• 8009 t deadweight at Caspian draught of 4.54 m (RST27 tanker has 7030 t deadweight), increased is 979 t;
• capacity of cargo tanks is foreseen for oil and oil products at Caspian Region; capacity is increased by trunk raising up to 9190 m³ (RST27 has 8100 m³), i.e. there is 1090 m³ increase.

 
Two multifunctional MPSV12 small-draught rescue tugboats of Arctic ice class Arc 5.
 
The Nevsky Shipyard (general director Evgeniy Kuznetsov) is a builder.
 
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.
 
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.
 
The vessel has an unique characteristics for her dimensions and Arctic ARC5 ice class, namely: deadweight is 1935 / 440 tons while draught is 4.50 / 3.20 m.
 
EIGHT largest due to displacement dry-cargo "super-full" mixed river-sea vessels of the "Volgo-Don Max" class.
 
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).
 
On 12.12.2019 Krasnoe Sormovo Shipyard (director Mikhail Pershin) launched its thirteenth multipurpose RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Pola Anastasia" of 8144 t deadweight (building No. 06013).
 
PJSE "State Leasing Transport Company" is a Customer; shipping companies "Pola Rise", "Petrotrans" and "Astrol" are the lessees.
 
Only three shipyards (Krasnoe Sormovo, Nevsky Shopyard and Oka Shipyard) have contracted more than 40 RSD59 vessels (fourteen of them are already built, the rest are under construction).
 
Constructed in 2018-2019 fourteen "super-fat" RSD59 multipurpose dry-cargo vessels of "Volgo-Don Max" class has no analogue in the world and are significantly better than all other vessels at the domestic market due to their technical-economic parameters.
 
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):
 
• deadweight at draught of 3.60 m is 5320 t (RSD49 has 4507 t), increase is 813 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;
• 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;
• 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).

 
EIGHT RSD32M mixed river-sea dry-cargo vessels of "Azov 5000" class.
 
On November 15, 2019, the eighth, final in the series RSD32M multi-purpose dry cargo vessel "Anatoly Nikolaev" (building No. 3208) of 6220 t deadweight was put in to operation. The entire series was built during 2019.
 
PJSC "State Leasing Transport Company" is a Customer, Navis-1 Company is a lessee.
 
Main target task for the RSD32M vessels is transportation of "classic" 5000 t grain lots from Azov and Caspian port at character draught for these regions of 4.20 m.
 
Philosophically, RSD32M vessels are intended to change morally and physically outdated vessels of Sormovskiy and Volgo-Balt types, which are actively operated just in this transportation segment.
 
RSD32M vessels has shorter theoretical length than other Volgo-Don Max ones, they are more inexpensive for construction and more economical at operation.

 
TWO dry-cargo RDB12 mixed river-sea barges of "Volgo-Don Max" class.
 
PJSE "State Transport Leasing Company" (STLC) ordered 3 barges of this project. Shipping company "Petrotanker" (Saint-Petersburg) is a lessee. Samara Shipyard "Nefteflot" is a builder.
 
RDB12 is an unmanned non-self-propelled vessel of Volgo-Don Max. type with 4 cargo holds of mixed river-sea sailing region, with double bottom and double sides, with watertight hatch covers. Horizontal coupling beams are placed aft for automatic coupling lock.
 
Principal dimensions of the dry-cargo RDB12 barge (work with classical OT type tug-pushers is foreseen):
 
Length max. 95.20 m;
Length overall 95.20 m;
Breadth max. 16.90 m;
Breadth 16.50 m;
Depth at the middle 5.50 m;
Draught max. 4.00 m;
Draught DWL 3.60 m.

 
The series of the largest due to displacement MARPOL non-self-propelled the ROB20 Belmax class oil barges for operation at the Belaya River has been completed (the final series' vessel was built).
 
On 29.04.19 the eighth ROB20 small-draught double-hulled non-self-propelled tanker barge "Belmax 8" was put into operation; barge is of class "O" of the "Novaya Belskaya" type of 6000 t deadweight at 2.75 m draught.
 
A series of eight vessels was built by leasing scheme for the Belmax Shipping company; the customer (lessor) is the State Transport Leasing Company.
 
Vessels are intended for the transportation of oil with flashpoint not less than 60°C; the main cargo is fuel oil, the main cargo is masut; the route is through the Belaya River and the Volga River, including reservoirs.
 
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.

 
Floating transshipment terminal of "open" type/ non-self-propelled Luft type CV03 crane vessel.
 
On 24.05.2019 the Besiktas Shipyard (Yalova, Turkey) launched the second CV03 port roads transshipment terminal"Luft 2" (building number 82) equipped by 35 t crane and a 4600 m³ cargo hold.
 
The CV03 transshipment terminal is designed to provide port roads reloading of bulk cargoes, primarily ore, with help of the crane from sea-river vessels to marine bulkers. Possibility of cargo accumulation during break between "large" vessels arrival is foreseen (feeder dry cargo vessels arrive more often).
 
LIEBHERR cargo crane of CBG350 type is installed onboard. The maximum outreach of crane's boom is about 46 m. Crane's lifting capacity is 35 t (at 12-30 m outreach), 30 t (at 30-36 m outreach). Crane provides output up to 20,000 t per day.
 
In order to prove operation of the port roads transshipment terminal in the seas, an experimental and numerical estimations were carried out for the wettability of a crane vessel with a cargo hold without hatch cover.

Krasnoe Sormovo (Nizhniy Novgorod) launched the RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Pola Anastasia" of 8144 t deadweight

On 12.12.2019 Krasnoe Sormovo Shipyard (director Mikhail Pershin) launched its thirteenth multipurpose RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Pola Anastasia" of 8144 t deadweight (building No. 06013).
 
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).
 
PJSE "State Leasing Transport Company" is a Customer, shipping company "Pola Rise" is a lessee.
 
The RSD59 prj. was designed by Marine Engineering Bureau.
 
Krasnoe Sormovo Shipyard has already built 10 multipurpose RSD59 dry cargo vessels and 10 more ones are at different step of construction. Plus an agreement for more 20 ones was signed.
 
For information: Nevsky Shipyard has put into operation two RSD59 vessels, the third is launched and 2 more ones are under construction.
 
Oka Shipyard has signed contract for more 15 RSD59 vessels.
 
By other words, the total order for RSD59 vessels is 60 vessels for the moment (12 ones has been constructed, other ones are under construction).
 
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 └UT1-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.

The second MPSV12 multifunctional small-draught rescue tugboat "Kalas" is put into operation

On 06.12.2019 the second MPSV12 multifunctional small-draught rescue tugboat "Kalas" (building No. 1202) was accepted for operation. The vessel was constructed for FBE "Marine Salvage Service of RosMorRechFlot"; she effected self-propelled trip St. Petersburg- Murmansk and then to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy through Northern Sea Route.
 
The Nevsky Shipyard (general director Evgeniy Kuznetsov) is a builder.
 
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.
 
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.
 
Vessel has unique characteristics for her dimensions and Arctic ARC5 ice class, namely: deadweight is 1935 / 440 tons while draught is 4.50 / 3.20 m.
 
MSV 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.
 
Tanks capacity is as follows: 500 cub.m for oily water (collected oil spill), 220/500 cub. m for FW (store / cargo), 450 / 400 cub.m for FO (store / cargo), 50 cub.m for lubricated oil (cargo), 130 cub.m for bilge water (cargo).
 
Vessel is equipped by 100 t automatic double-drum (cascade type) towing winch for towing operation and towing of emergency vessels, and also by 60 t towing hook with remote release.
 
Pull effort of the winch is defined subject to possible thrust effort of propellers while zero vessel's speed.
