"Krasnoe Sormovo" laid down another five tankers of New Armada type, project RST22 with deadweight of 7000 tons
"Krasnoe Sormovo" shipyard (Nikolay Zharkov is a general director) is included in group of companies "Marine and oil-and-gas projects" (MOP). On February, 29, 2008 the shipyard laid down bottom sections of five product and chemical tanker IMO2 of "New Armada" type (building numbers 07006, 07007, 07008, 07009 and 07010).
Product and chemical tankers IMO2 with full-circle rudder propellers and increased ecological class RS "ECO PROJECT" are being built for Palmali group (Mubariz Mansimov is a president of Palmali group).
Vessel's project is designed by the Marine Engineering Bureau (MEB).
The vessel's project RST22 is the development of 005RST01 prj. tankers with deadweight of 6400 tons, known as "Armadas". They were designed by the Marine Engineering Bureau earlier for Palmali group and were built at ADA and SELAH shipyards in Tuzla (Turkey) in 2002-2006.
Ten Armada type tankers are successfully maintained on the river-sea and ocean transportations in Caspian, Black, Mediterranean, Baltic and North Seas, including voyages around of Europe and to Irish Sea in winter. They transport crude oil, masout, diesel fuel, other petroleum products and vegetable oils.
Using full-circle rudder propellers as movement and manoeuvre facilities, using submersible pump, full absence of a framing in cargo tanks are characteristic features of RST22 and 005RST01 projects vessels. These vessels have no longitudinal bulkhead in CL.
Vessels satisfy dimensions of the Volga-Don canal and Volga-Baltic way. Overall RST22 prj. vessel length is of 139.95 m, breadth is of 16.6 m, depth is of 6.0 m.
Vessels belong to "Volga-Don Max" tankers' type.
New project tanker have increased marine function, increased deadweight in marine conditions and increased total cargo tanks capacity with keeping river possibilities in comparison with vessels of "Armada" type. Vessels satisfy all new international requirements for transportation of vegetable oils, including two-compartment unsinkability. Special requirements of the Russian and world petroleum companies, additional ecological limitations "ECO PROJECT" class were taken into consideration during designing.
Total capacity of six cargo tanks and two slop ones is of 8090 m³, deadweight is about 7000 tons when sea draught is of 4.60 m. Deadweight is about 4700 tons when river draught is of 3.60 m. Cruising speed is of 10.5 knots.
Two medium-speed diesels (main engine) of 1200 kWt each use heavy fuel oil with viscosity of IFO380.
Vessel's Russian Maritime Register of shipping class notation is of KM LU1 II A1, tanker, ECO PROJECT.
Vessels' keels were laid down on 29.02.2008.
In the series ten tankers are supposed to build, as well as in "Armada" series.
