Krasnoye Sormovo Shipyard put in to operation third RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Pola Sofia" of 7709 t deadweight

On the 8th of August 2018, Krascnoye Sormovo Shipyard located in Nizhny Novgorod (is included in the United Shipbuilding Corporation) put in to operation second multipurpose RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Pola Sofia" with deadweight of 7779 t (building No. 06003).
 
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 Krasnoye Sormovo Shipyard and five more vessels were ordered at Nevsky Shipyard.ordered at Nevsky 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 BC 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 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.

Krasnoye Sormovo Shipyard put into operation the lead RSD59 multipurpose dry cargo vessel "Pola Makaria" with 7679 t deadweight

On the 24th of May 2018, Krascnoye Sormovo Shipyard located in Nizhny Novgorod (is included in the United Shipbuilding Corporation) put into operation the second multi-purpose RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Pola Makaria" with deadweight of 7779 t (building No. 06001).
 
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 Krasnoye Sormovo Shipyard and five more vessels were ordered at Nevsky 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.
 
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 5272 t (RSD49 has 4507 t), increase is 765 t;
• deadweight at a draught of 4.20 m 6896 tons (RSD49 project - 6021 tons), increased by 875 t;
• deadweight at the maximum draught of 4.53 m is 7679 t (RSD49 has 7143 t at maximum draught of 4.70 m ), increase is 536 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 5272 tons, the largest deadweight at sea with a draft of 4.53 m is 7679 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. She was accepted for operation on 24.05.2018.
Keel of the second vessel (building No. 06002) was laid down on 19.09.17. She was launched on 08.06.18. She was accepted for operation on 05.07.2018.

The Oka Shipyard has launched the second small-draught ROB20 oil barge "Belmaks 2" with deadweight of 6000 t



On 22th of May 2018 Oka Shipyard (general director Vladimir Kulikov, shipyard is a part of UCL holding) has launched the second small-draught ROB20 "double-hull" non-self-propelled oil barge "Belmaks 2" with deadweight of 6000 t of class "O" of the "Novaya Belskaya" type (building number 4102).
 
Barge characteristics, namely 6000 t of cargo (at 2.75 m draught) while light weight is 880 t, allow to classify the project as a unique one.
 
A series of ten vessels is being built by leasing scheme for the Belmax 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 was signed on October 31, 2017. The vessels are planned to be built and handed over to the customer in the first half of 2018.
 
While designing the hull prj. ROB20 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 tons at draught 2.75 m. This is definitely a record for inland navigation vessels.
 
The carrying capacity is 4590 tons at draught 2.20 m, and 3560 tons at draught 1.80 m.
 
Some time ago the world's first oil-loading barges were set the same records, which also had a very long and flat hull design with a minimum mass of the hull. In 1885 they were designed and built in Tsaritsyn and Saratov by an outstanding Russian engineer Vladimir Grigorievich 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 tons of cargo, and at a maximum draft of 2.60 m - 4590 tons.
 
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.
 
Keel of lead vessel of prj. ROB20 (building number 4101) "Belmaks 1" was laid down on 22.11.2017. She was launched on 19.04.2018.
Keel of the second vessel (Building number 4102) was laid down on 30.11.2017.
Keel of the third vessel (Building number 4103) was laid down on 20.12.2017.
Keel of the fourth vessel (Building number 4104) was laid down on 19.01.2018.

The Oka Shipyard put into operation the lead small-draught ROB20 "double hulled" oil barge "Belmaks 1" with deadweight 6000 t

On 17th of May 2018 Oka Shipyard (general director Vladimir Kulikov, shipyard is a part of UCL holding) put into operation the lead small-draught ROB20 "double-hull" non-self-propelled oil barge "Belmaks 1" with deadweight of 6000 t of class "O" of the "Novaya Belskaya" type (building number 4101).
 
Barge characteristics - 6000 tons of cargo (2.75 m draught) at an empty weight of 880 tons, it is possible to classify the project as a unique.
 
A series of ten vessels is being built by leasing scheme for the Belmax 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 was signed on October 31, 2017. The vessels are planned to be built and handed over to the customer in the first half of 2018.
 
While designing the hull prj. ROB20 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 tons at draught 2.75 m. This is definitely a record for inland navigation vessels.
 
The carrying capacity is 4590 tons at draught 2.20 m, and 3560 tons at draught 1.80 m.
 
Some time ago the world's first oil-loading barges were set the same records, which also had a very long and flat hull design with a minimum mass of the hull. In 1885 they were designed and built in Tsaritsyn and Saratov by an outstanding Russian engineer Vladimir Grigorievich 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 tons of cargo, and at a maximum draft of 2.60 m - 4590 tons.
 
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.
 
Keel of lead vessel of prj. ROB20 (building number 4101) "Belmaks 1" was laid down on 22.11.2017. She was launched on 19.04.2018.

Keel of the fourth vessel (building number 4104) was laid down on 19.01.2018.
Keel of the fifth vessel (building number 4105) was laid down on 26.03.2018.
Keel of the sixth vessel (building number 4106) was laid down on 29.03.2018.
Keel of the seventh vessel (building number 4107) was laid down on 26.04.2018.
