Train-ferry "Slavyanin" with capacity of 50 wagons was put into operation
On August 12, 2010 train-ferry "Slavyanin" of CNF09 prj. was put into operation at "Yuzhniy Sevastopol" shipyard for "Anship" company. On August 17 vessel left for the port of Caucasus from the port of Sevastopol.
Vessel "Slavyanin" of CNF09 project with capacity of 50 wagons is assigned for lines the port of Caucasus - the port of Varna (Bulgaria).
The ship-owner - "Anship" shipping company (Alexander Monin is the general director, Sergey Dobryakov is the technical director), which has in operation 25 wagons train-ferries "Petrovsk" and "Annenkov" of 002CNF01 project on the line the port of Caucasus - the port of Crimea and 45 wagons train-ferry "Avangard" of CNF06 project on the line the port of Caucasus - the port of Varna.
Work supervision is being carried out by Don-Cuban branch of RRR (Yuriy Sklyarenko is the head of branch).
Project CNF09 is designed by the Marine Engineering Bureau (MEB).
Vessel is assigned for transportation of railway wagons and vehicles, dangerous goods of 1, 2, 3, 4.1, 4.2, 5, 6.1, 8, 9 classes and oversized cargoes.
Vessel's overall length is of 150.20 m, length between perpendiculars is of 139.94 m, overall breadth is of 22.0 m, moulded breadth is of 21.0 m, depth is of 8.00 m.
Deadweight is about 6258 tons with cargo waterline draught of 4.50 m that allows to make transportation from shallow water of Caucasus port (Russian Federation) to the port of Varna (Bulgaria) and to the port of Poty (Georgia) to provide cargo transportation on line Russia - EU, Russia - Armenia.
The deckhouse is located fore and engine-room is located aft, 1 main engine with capacity of 5500 kWt works through reduction gear to variable-pitch propeller.
Railway wagons are placed on five railway lines of upper deck.
Tank-wagon (length between coupling gauges of 12020 mm) capacity is of 50 units.
Freight car (length between coupling gauges of 14730 mm) capacity is of 40 units.
Passenger car (length between coupling gauges of 24540 mm) capacity is of 25 units.
Open-top wagon (length between coupling gauges of 13920 mm) capacity is of 45 units.
Loading-unloading is of one-level type (as at almost all MEB designed train-ferries), that essentially reduces the price of coast terminals and provides loading-unloading of train (50 wagons) during 1.0 - 1.5 hours.
The cargo deck is designed for transportation of wagons with weight up to 97 tons each on the all lines, on outside lines (1 and 5) wagons with weight up to 219 tons (8-axles) can be transported, possible load of vehicles' axle is of 12 tons (4 wheels on the axle) and 10 tons (2 wheels on axle).
Cargo deck sizes allow to transport so-called "project" cargoes which are impossible to place on usual vessels. Presence of fore located deckhouse practically does not restrict height of large-sized cargoes.
The vessel is of single-screw type. Operational speed is of 12.0 kn. Vessel has two thrusters (fore and aft ones).
