MPSV12 multifunctional small-draught rescue tugboat "Bakhtrmir" is put into operation



On 16.05.2019 Nevsky Shipyard (general director Evgeniy Kuznetsov).put into operation the head MPSV12 multifunctional small-draught rescue tugboat "Bakhtrmir" (building No. 1201).
 
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.
 
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.

Krasnoe Sormovo put into operation the sixth RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Idel 1" of 8144 t deadweight

On 16.05.2019 Krasnoe Sormovo Shipyard (director Mikhail Pershin, shipyard is included in the United Shipbuilding Corporation) put into operation its sixth multipurpose RSD59 dry cargo vessel "Idel 1" of 8144 t deadweight (building No. 06006).
 
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 5 multipurpose RSD59 dry cargo vessels and 15 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.

On 15.05.2019 the fourth RSD32M dry-cargo vessel "Navis-4" of 6220 t deadweight (building No. 3204) was launched.
 
The customer is PJSE "State Leasing Transport Company", the lessee is Dimar Freight 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, v 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.
 
For information, as to 2017:
 
• from 152 Volgo-Balt vessels (projects 2-95 and 2-95A/R, built in Chekho-Slovakia in 1967-1984) 54 ones (35.5%) are discarded, namely 9 ones were missed due to catastrophes, 45 ones were utilized. 91 vessels are under operation, their mean age is 40.5 years; 7 vessel with mean age 45.7 are out of operation. Mean age for the utilized vessels is 40 years. For the first only Volgo-Balt series (project 2-95, built in 1967-1974) 44 vessels from 73 ones are discarded (60%), namely 7 ones were missed due to catastrophes, 37 ones were utilized in this century, 1 vessel was utilized in before 2001. 27 vessels are under operation with mean age of 46.4 years.
 
• from 121 Sormovskiy vessels (project 1557, built in 1967-1986) 48 ones (39.7%) are discarded, namely 8 ones were missed due to catastrophes, 40 ones were utilized. 63 vessels are under operation, their mean age is 39 years. Mean age for the utilized vessels is 38.4 years. 10 vessel with mean age 43.5 are out of operation, most probably they also will be broken for scrap metal.
 
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.

The eighth ROB20 small-draught "double-hulled" tanker barge was put into operation; the barge is built by the project of Marine Engineering Bureau

On 29.04.19 The eighth ROB20 small-draught "double-hullednon-self-propelled tanker barge "Belmax 8" was put into operation; barge is of class "O" of the "Novaya Belskaya" type (building number 4108).
 
Characteristics of the barge, namely 6000 t of cargo (at draught 2.75 m) while light weight is 880 t let to announce this project as an unique one.
 
A series of eight ROB20 tanker vessels and two RDB20 dry-cargo 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 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.
 
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. She was launched 15.08.2018. Vessel was accepted for operation on 20.08.2018.
The keel of the seventh vessel (building No. 4107) "Belmaks 7" was laid down on 26.04.2018. She was launched 24.08.2018. Vessel was accepted for operation on 29.08.2018.

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, 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 eighth small-draught "double-hulled" tanker barge was launched; the barge is built by the project of Marine Engineering Bureau

On 17th of April 2019 it was launched the eighth ROB20 small-draught "double-hull" non-self-propelled tanker barge "Belmaks 8" of class "O" of the "Novaya Belskaya" type (building number 4108).
 
Characteristics of the barge, namely 6000 t of cargo (at draught 2.75 m) while light weight is 880 t let to announce this project as an unique one.
 
A series of eight ROB20 tanker vessels and two RDB20 dry-cargo 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 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.
 
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. She was launched 15.08.2018.
The keel of the seventh vessel (building No. 4107) "Belmaks 7" was laid down on 26.04.2018. She was launched 24.08.2018.
The keel of the eighth vessel (building No. 4108) "Belmaks 8" was laid down on 26.07.2018. She was launched 17.04.2019.

Dry cargo vessel "Oneriva 45" (prj. 964) was modernized for grain transportation by increasing height of cargo hatches' coaming

On the 14th of the April, 2019, a significant modernization of dry cargo vessel"Oneriva 45" was completed. The modernization was carried out for grain transportation providing and included increasing height of cargo hatches' coaming.
 
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 "Oneriva 45" 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.
 
Main characteristics of the vessel are as follows:
 
Length overall is 105.30 m;
Length between PP is 102.08 m;
Breadth is 16.50 m;
Depth is 5.50 m;
Draught (Summer freeboard) is 3.847 m;
Deadweight (marine) is 3888 t;
Holds capacity is 4541 m³.
 
The modernized dry cargo vessel "Oneriva 45" has technical-economic indicators that significantly exceed the vessels's capabilities before modernization, which allows it to be efficiently operated in mixed river-sea and sea transportation.
