First time in the country's history ship utilization grant was provided for financing building of two RST27 tankers

As to information of Portnews information-analytical agency, sums received by Volgotrans Company from state budget were used as leasing payments for RST27 oil/chemical tankers "Volgotrans-2701" and "Volgotrans-2702" of 7022/5420 t marine/river deadweight. These sums were charged for utilization old Volgoneft type tankers.
 
This is the First time in the country's history providing of ship utilization grant (SUG) from federal budget to Russian organizations for compensation part of expense for buying (constructing) new civil vessels in exchange of vessels forwarded to utilization in accordance with Decree of Russian Federation Government No. 502 dd. 27.04.2017.
 
Volgotrans Company received subsidy of 140 mln. rubles for utilization old vessels.
 
Volgotrans Company forwarded claim for SUG receiving for 2 tankers that are under construction at Lotos Shipyard.
 
"SUG works only thanks to significant efforts of Russian Shipping Chamber as well as support of Transport Ministry of Russia, RosMorRechFlot and Trade Ministry of Russia", - marked first deputy of Volgotrans general director Alexey Palnov.
 
"Volgotrans-2071" and "Volgotrans-2071" vessels were accepted for operation by Volgotrans Shipping Company (Rodion Svetlichniy is a general director) in July of 2017.
 
Krasnoe Sormovo Shipyard at Nizhniy Novgorod (Nikolay Zharkov is a general director) is a builder.
 
Project RST27 was designed by Marine Engineering Bureau.
 
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).
 
Series of RST27 tankers with an increased block coefficient is the biggest in newest history (since 1991) of national shipbuilding; during period from 2012, 35 vessels has been built and accepted into operation. Another 5 ones were launched and will be put into operation in the nearest months.
 
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.
 
Thus the contract deadweight of 6980/5378 is increased for 42 t, contract speed is increased more than 1 kn.
 
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.
 
Russian Maritime Registry of Shipping class notation is - KM Ice1 R2 AUT1-ICS OMBO VCS ECO-S Oil tanker /Chemical tanker type 2 (ESP).
 
As other river-sea going MEB tankers, RST27 vessels use full-turn rudder propellers as single movement and maneuver unit. They have increased trunk and use submersible cargo pumps. They have no longitudinal bulkhead in CL and no framing in cargo tanks.
 
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 vessel is for transportation of oil and oil products without the flash point restriction, also the following chemical in bulk:
 
• Methyl alcohol;
• Ethyl tert-butyl ether;
• Ethylene glycol;
• Methyl tert-butyl ether;
• Acetone;
• Ethyl alcohol;
• Isopropyl alcohol;
• Cacium lignosulphonate solution;
• Ethyl acetate;
• Ethylene glycol;
• Hexane (all isomers);
• Octanol (all isomers);
• Sodium hydroxide solution;
• Toluene;
• Urea/ammonium nitrate solution;
• Xylenes;
• Diethylene glycol;
• Glycerine.
 
Total capacity of six cargo tanks and two slop ones is of 8100 cub. m, deadweight is about 7022 tons with sea draught of 4.20 m. Deadweight is about 5420 tons with river draught of 3.60 m. Cruising speed is of 11.0 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 (marine/river).
