The third multipurpose RSD32M dry-cargo vessel "Navis-3" of 6220 t deadweight is put in the operation

On 03.06.2019 the third multipurpose RSD32M dry-cargo vessel "Navis-3" of 6220 t deadweight (building No. 3203) was put in the operation.
 
The customer is PJSE "State Leasing Transport Company", the lessee is "Navis-1" company. Totaly 8 multifunctional dry-cargo vessels are ordered.
 
Prj. RSD32M is designed by Marine Engineering Bureau.
 
RSD32M vessels refer to the "Azov 5000" type due to MEB internal classification, in other words their main target task 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Philosophically, RSD32M vessels are intended to change morally and physically outdated vessels of Sormovskiy and Volgo-Balt types, which are actively operated just in this transportation segment.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 can be operated for transportations of general, bulk, packed and round timber, grain, scrap metal, bunches and rolls of metal, large-sized and heavy-lift cargoes, coal, dangerous goods of 1 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.1, 8, 9 classes of IMDG Code and cargoes of category B of IMSBC Code. Sailing regions are internal waterways of European part of RF; Azov, Caspian, Black, Mediterranean Baltic, White, North Seas, including voyages around Europe and to Irish Sea in winter.
 
RSD32M vessels has shorter theoretical length than other Volgo-Don Max ones, they are more inexpensive for construction and more economical at operation.
 
The project is designed for a class notation KM Ice1 R2 AUT1-ICS CONT(deck, cargo holds Nos.1,2,3) 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.
 
For characteristic for the VDSC draught of 3.60 m river deadweight is 3833 t. For characteristic for Azov and Caspian Seas draught of 4.20 m marine deadweight is 5157 t; the largest marine deadweight for draught 4.745 m is 6221 t.
 
The maximum vessel's length is 123.17 m, the overall width is 16.75 m, depth is 5.50 m.
 
The capacity of cargo holds is 8804 m³, number of holds is 3.
 
All cargo holds are box-shaped, smooth-walled, and convenient for cargo operations and placing the goods without stowage.
 
Propulsion unit consists of two full-turned rudder propellers that combines properties of propulsion devise and control means within single complex; this significantly enhances manoeuvrability of the vessel.
 
Two medium-speed diesels of 1180 kW each are used as main engines. Fuel oil stores are placed in deep-tanks in area of the ER fore bulkhead.
 
The operating speed is 10.0 kn.
 
Marine sailing autonomy is 20 day.
 
Crew consists of 11 people, total places onboard are 14. Pilot cabin is provided.
 
Designed vessel hull's life term is 24 years. The double bottom is designed for distributed load with intensity of 10.0 t/m², and also allows to use bucket grab.
 
Keel of the lead RSD32M vessel "Navis-1" (building No. 3201) was laid down 22.05.18. She was launched on 12.12.18 and accepted for operation on 29.05.19.

Krasnoe Sormovo put into operation the eighth RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Idel 3" of 8144 t deadweight

On 28.06.2019 Krasnoe Sormovo Shipyard (director Mikhail Pershin, shipyard is included in the United Shipbuilding Corporation) put into operation its eighth multipurpose RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Idel 3" of 8144 t deadweight (building No. 06008).
 
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 "Idel" (joint enterprise of "Pola Rise" and "Glenkor").
 
Krasnoe Sormovo Shipyard has already built 8 multipurpose RSD59 dry cargo vessels and 12 more ones are at different step of construction.
 
For information: Nevsky Shipyard has put into operation its first RSD59 vessel, the second one is forwarded for running trials and 3 more ones are under construction. By other words, the total order for RSD59 vessels is 25 vessels for the moment (6 ones has been constructed, 2 are afloat under finished works, other ones are under construction). Plus Oka Shipyard has signed contract for more 15 RSD59 vessels.
 
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 (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, 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.
 
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.

Beshiktas Shipyard launched the second CV03 floating transshipment terminal "Luft 2" equipped by 35 t crane and 4600 m³ cargo hold



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.
 
Prj. CV03 is designed by Marine Engineering Bureau.
 
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).
 
CV03 terminal is as a marine steel non-self-propelled crane vessel with cargo hold, of a simplified hull shape, with 63.86 m length, with 24 m breadth, with 7.20 m depth, with transom fore and aft ends, with forecastle and poop, with living deck-house and diesel generator room (engine room) located aft, with a cargo hold at the middle, with a aft cargo crane at CL.
 
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.
 
Marine cargo operations are allowed at waves force up to 4 (maximum wave height 2.0 m), wind force up to 5 due to the Beaufort scale (wind speed up to 20.0 m/s).
 
Deadweight is 6980 t at draught of 5.60 m. Capacity of the cargo hold is 4600 m³. The hold is made as a classic "bulk" type with double bottom of 1300 mm height, double sides of 2000 mm width and with inclined plates at the bilge and under the deck, with high hold coaming of 2880 mm height. Allowable load onto the tank top is 12 t/m².
 
The cargo hold is protected from bad weather by a special closing.
 
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.
 
Towing tank tests of the vessels model were carried out at the regular waves, height of which matches to the height of 3% probability irregular waves at the expected operational area. This approach is harder in terms of the determined rolling parameters. According to the results of the tests, it was found that at full loading case the model's motions at all considered waves and course angles don't lead to the hold's flooding even when the deck is wetted (vessel's position beam to the sea). The reason is enough big vessel's depth and high cargo hold coaming (2.88 m).
 
Similar results were obtained by calculations using the software complex "Kachka" for irregular waves.
 
For hull design of CV03 prj., strength calculations using FEM plate idealization (3-D model of the entire hull with all the main foundations) were widely used. Such choice has been made due to vessel's complex functionality (marine operation of 35 t crane plus hard ore cargo up to 7000 t in the cargo hold.
 
The power plant consists of two (or single) main 900 kW diesel generators and an auxiliary 160 kW diesel generator. Heavy fuel oil IFO380 of 380 cSt viscosity is used. Autonomy of the vessel is 20 days for fuel, lub. oil, water and provisions consumption. The maximum stores capacity is 200 t.
 
Ballast water of 3700 t is pumped in for far ballast voyages.
 
The following is intended for crew and maintenance staff accommodation:
 
• 2 single block cabins (salon and bedroom) with lavatory and shower;
• 3 single cabins for the crew with lavatory and shower;
• 3 double cabins for the crew with lavatory and a shower;
• 2 four-bed cabins for maintenance staff with a lavatory and a shower.
 
Two single cabins are provided with 1 extra bed.
 
The total number of places onboard is 21.
 
Keel of the lead CV03 vessel "Luft-1" (building No. 81) was laid down on 12.01.18. She was launched on 19.05.18 and accepted for operation on 19.06.18.
Keel of the second vessel "Luft-2" (building No. 82) was laid down on 19.03.18. She was launched on 02.04.19 and accepted for operation on 24.05.19.

Lotus Shipyard launched the first cruise PV300VD passenger vessel of new generation for 310 passengers "Petr Velikiy"



On 24.05.2019 Lotos Shipyard launched the head cruise PV300VD passenger vessel of new generation for 310 passengers "Petr Velikiy" (building No. 25800).
 
PV300VD vessel was launched using a traversing unit of the slope slipway at Lotos Shipyard. Vessel had 40-m overhang of the hull's fore end. Such a non-standard launch was justified by the strength analysis group of the Marine Engineering Bureau.
 
The vessel is being built by order of the leasing company "Mashpromleasing" for the Moscow River Shipping Company.
 
The PV300VD project is developed in 2010-2015 by Marine Engineering Bureau by request of Federal Agency of Marine and River Transport of Russia within the FTP "Development of civil marine equipment for 2009-2016" ( the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation is the state customer and the coordinator of the program).
 
PV300VD is a modern cruise liner for the river and the coastal water of RF which will give the chance to make a water journey along the chosen route through the European part of the country. During the voyage vessel should call the ports where walking and bus excursions to cultural, historical, natural sights and coastal resort zones are organized. Accommodation with five-star hotel comfort will be provided. There will be possibility of realization of the most various forms of leisure onboard the vessel: bars, discos, sun bath, swimming in the pool, fitness, walks through vessel's open spaces or conversation with a wine glass in a hand, viewing beauty of coast, screening of movies or performances, visiting performance of actors or famous people, listening of lectures, participating in work of creative teams, communication with friends, attendance of restaurant with open kitchen, etc., including even casino game in the international waters.
 
The PV300VD concept is designed as "floating hotel" with full-range balconies / terraces, fore both-sides view saloon, the double-part sun deck (on a deck-house roof with wind deflector and on the tent deck with movable weather-tight closing, with pool and bar).
 
The total area of cabins makes 16-43 m² each, including balcony / French balcony (cabins are double, as a rule). There are restaurant with total places equivalent to passengers' number, conference rooms, bars, children's room, beauty salon, souvenir shop, fitness salon; solarium the open sun deck. Lifts connected all decks, communications and toilets, enlarged passageways and absence of obstacles for wheelchairs are foreseen for physically challenged people.
 
The PV300VD concept will work at the line Moscow - St. Petersburg, and also at lines Moscow - Rostov-on-Don - Sevastopol - Sochi, Astrakhan - the ports of the Caspian Sea; so due to Marine Engineering Bureau classification, this vessel is of the "Volga-Don Max" class.
 
For the usual "Volga-Don Max" vessels of the existing projects (projects 301 and 302) the number of passengers for the case of modern cabins makes 200-220. On the new PV300VD concept with the same overall dimensions it is possible to arrange comfortably about 300-350 passengers.
 
The existing domestic cruise vessels cannot be operated at the international lines. Requirements of the international conventions have not considered during design and construction of such vessels; so it becomes impossible for them to receive the international certificates confirming possibility of operation and transportation of passengers.
 
The existing marine cruise fleet foresees, as a rule, far-distant voyages with calling seaports of different coastal states. Sizes of such vessels consider possibility of approaching to water areas of seaports and mooring at the existing marine berths, but don't allow to come into estuarial river ports and, especially, to navigate through RF internal waterways.
 
Today's realities of domestic tourism show that favourite river cruises for foreign tourists from the USA, Germany and Australia, through the route Moscow - St. Petersburg, were added by "partially marine" lines Moscow - Sevastopol, Moscow - Sochi, "circular" cruise through the Caspian Sea which are more interesting for the domestic traveler. As negotiations of Moscow River Shipping Company show, the Caspian cruise attracts not only citizens of the Caspian countries (Iran, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan), but also tourists from the USA, Australia, Europe and China.
 
Vessel of the new PV300VD concept has the following main particulars:
 
length overall - 141 m;
length between perpendiculars - 135.56 m;
breadth overall - 16.82 m;
breadth - 16.60 m;
depth - 5.50 m;
draught maximal - 3.20 m;
air draught from BL - 16.25 m;
crew and service staff - 90 people;
autonomy by fuel - 15 days;
autonomy by other stores - 10 days.
 
Passenger capacity of the vessel can be varied from 300 to 400 depending on the type of cabin modules used (area of cabins is 16-43 m²) and usage of additional places for children.
 
Arrangement of the cruise vessel in the variant of the Moscow River Shipping Company foresees 310 passengers who travel in 155 comfortable cabins of different classes:
 
• 7 luxury apartments with a balcony of about 36-43 m² area (33-35 m² without considering balcony);
• 5 luxury cabins with a balcony of about 26 m² area (21 m² without considering balcony);
• 133 standard cabins with a balcony of about 19-21 m² area (16-18 m² without considering balcony);
• 8 standard cabins of about 16 m² area;
• 2 standard cabins for disable people of about 21 m² area.
 
Passenger cabins are located in the middle vertical zone on 4 superstructure decks. Cabins on three upper decks have own balconies with sliding sections that provide through deck pass at emergency situations.
 
All passenger cabins are equipped with double beds, lavatory and douche, air-conditioner, wardrobe, safe, TV set with satellite and internal vessel's channels, hairdryer, sockets 220V and 110V, wireless Internet (Wi-Fi), vessel's radio translation, external and internal telephone connection.
 
One change meal period for passengers is foreseen on the vessel. Two restaurants are applied for this purpose: main restaurant and restaurant with opened kitchen.
 
The main restaurant has two halls (of 360 m² and 140 m²) equipped with smorgasbord. The bigger hall is equipped also by bar console.
 
Meals preparation can be watched in the restaurant with open kitchen because kitchen is separated from restaurant by glass wall only.
 
All restaurants have maximal available glass cover, that enables to take pleasure not only in tasty meal but also in window's view.
 
Bar is worked till the last client. Here is bar in the daytime and disco in the night. Bar's arrangement does not prevent to have a rest to other passengers. Double-tier sun deck is located near; there are grill bar, swimming pool and 4 Jacuzzis. Part of deck can be covered by moving tent when weather is bad.
 
PV300VD is not only up-to-date high comfortable and handy vessel but also safe, ecology "clear" passenger one that fully meets requirements of all International Conventions (IC), including IC for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), IC for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL), International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGS). Additionally there are met all Russian requirements such as Sanitary Regulations and Norms, Fire Safety Regulations, Technical Regulations for Safety of Inland Water transport Objects.
 
Keel of the PV300VD lead vessel "Petr Velikiy" (building No. 25800) was laid down on 15.08.16. She was launched on 24.05.19.

Krasnoe Sormovo put into operation the seventh RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Idel 2" of 8144 t deadweight

On 23.05.2019 Krasnoe Sormovo Shipyard (director Mikhail Pershin, shipyard is included in the United Shipbuilding Corporation) put into operation its seventh multipurpose RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Idel 2" of 8144 t deadweight (building No. 06007).
 
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 ""Idel" (joint enterprise of "Pola Rise" and "Glenkor").
 
Krasnoe Sormovo Shipyard has already built 7 multipurpose RSD59 dry cargo vessels and 13 more ones are at different step of construction.
 
For information: Nevsky Shipyard has put into operation its first RSD59 vessel, the second one is forwarded for running trials and 3 more ones are under construction. By other words, the total order for RSD59 vessels is 25 vessels for the moment (6 ones has been constructed, 2 are afloat under finished works, other ones are under construction). Plus Oka Shipyard has signed contract for more 15 RSD59 vessels.
 
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 (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 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.
 
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.
 
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.
