Responding to direct market demand, the tanker is built for future use (in store), and is ready for delivery to potential customers.
 
The international shipbuilding group DAMEN Shipyards Group (head office in Gorinchem, the Netherlands) unites 40 ship-building and ship-repairing shipyards. The total staff of the company around the world is 9 thousand people. As of today, the company built more than 6 thousand vessels around the world; annually about 160 new vessels are put into operation. DAMEN specializes in design and construction of tugboats, boats, patrol ones, high-speed and cargo vessels, dredges, ships for servicing offshore platforms, oil spill response vessels, frigates and mega-yachts.
 
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 tankers with an increased block coefficient prj. RST27 is the biggest in new history of national shipbuilding, from 2012 40 vessels has been built and taken in to operation.
 
RST27 vessels have the record block coefficient 0.93, but 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.
 
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 (ESP).
 
As other river-sea going MEB tankers, RST27 vessels use full-circle 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 vessels are assigned for transportation of crude oil and oil products, without flash point restrictions.
 
Simultaneous transportation of two types of cargo is ensured.
 
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 (sea/river).
