The THIRTY EIGHTH RST27 tanker is launched in Navashino



On 30.03.2017 Navashino "Oka Shipyard" (Vladimir Kulikov is a general director) launched RST27 tanker "Balt-Flot 15" of "Volgo-Don Max" type with marine/river deadweight 7030/5428 tons (building No. 02714).
 
Shipping company "BF Tanker" (Dmitriy Olerskiy is a general director) is a Customer; there is its fourth own RST27 tanker.
 
Project RST27 was designed by Marine Engineering Bureau. "Balt-Flot 15" is the THIRTY EIGHTH one in the series of "super fat" launched RST27 tanker.
 
M/v "Balt-Flot 15" is being built due to the contract concluded on 23.09.2015 by Shipping company "BF Tanker" concerning construction of seven river-sea "Volgo-Don Max" type vessels, namely for 4 "super-fat" RST27 tankers with river/marine deadweight of about 7022/5420 t and for 3 combined RST54 platform tankers with deadweight 5745 t (designed within RST27 hull contours). All vessels should be accepted for operation in 2016. PJSE "State Transport Leasing Company" is a lessor.
 
Britain Royal Institution of Naval Architects included RST27 in the list of the best vessels of the year (Significant Ships of 2012 and Significant Ships of 2013).
 
RST27 vessels have the record block coefficient 0.93; the head vessel showed speed of 11.7 kn during trials at running line with main engines power of 2100 kW (87.5% of full output) and fore/aft draughts 3.2/3.3 m.
 
Contract deadweight of 6980/5378 t was increased for the first at Oka Shipyard vessel "VF tanker-11" by 50 t and actually is of 7030/5428 t. Speed was of 11.7 knots during running test.
 
New project tanker has increased river function comparing with other MEB projects. River deadweight of RST27 vessels is increased for 732 t comparing to Armadas, while:
 
• increased hull's strength (vessel is of R2 sailing region, or II region due to old RS classification);
• practically keeping the same fuel consumption;
• keeping increase capacity of cargo tanks.
 
Hull's theoretical forms are a result of scientific research carried out by Marine Engineering Bureau altogether with Digital Marine Technology in 2010 and were defined with help of calculating hydromechanics methods (CFD modeling).
 
As other river-sea going MEB tankers, RST27 vessels use full-circle rudder propellers as single movement and manoeuvre unit. They have increased trunk and use submersible cargo pumps. They have no longitudinal bulkhead in CL and no framing in cargo tanks.
 
Russian Maritime Registry of Shipping class notation is KM Ice1 R2 AUT1-ICS OMBO VCS ECO-S Oil tanker /Chemical tanker type 2 (ESP).
 
RST27 vessels satisfy dimensions of the Volga-Don Canal and Volga-Baltic Way. Overall RST27 vessel length is of 140.85 m, breadth is of 16.6 m, depth is of 6.0 m. They belong to "Volgo-Don Max" class.
 
Special requirements of the Russian and world petroleum companies, additional ecological RS limitations of "ECO PROJECT" (ECO-S) class were taken into consideration during designing.
 
RST27 vessels are assigned for transportation of crude oil and oil products, without flash point restrictions, also vegetable oils.
 
Total capacity of six cargo tanks and two slop ones is of 8100 cub. m, deadweight is about 7030 t at marine draught 4.20 m. Deadweight is about 5428 t at river draught 3.60 m. Cruising speed is of 10.5 knots.
 
Cargo system provides simultaneously transportation of 2 cargoes. Cargo pumps capacity is 6 x 200 cub. m/hour. Two auxiliary steam boilers (capacity 2.5 t/hour each) are installed onboard.
 
Two medium-speed diesels (main engine) of 1200 kW each use heavy fuel oil with viscosity IFO380. There is 230 kW bow thruster. Electrical plant consists of three 292 kW diesel-generators and emergency-staying 136 kW diesel-generator.
 
Crew consists of 12 persons (14 places + pilot).
 
Autonomy is of 20/12 days (sea/river).
