Two train ferries of Anship company (Alexander Monin is the general director, Sergey Dobryakov is the technical director) carried out 49 round voyages in 2010 on the line from the port of Caucasus (Russian Federation) to the port of Varna (Bulgaria). 3963 wagons were transported in total.
 
Ferry "Avangard" of CNF06 project carried out 40 voyages and transported 1613 wagons on the line from the port of Caucasus to the port of Varna and 1623 wagons on line from the port of Varna to the port of Caucasus. Ferry "Slavyanin" of CNF09 project carried out 9 round voyages and transported 380 wagons on the line from the port of Caucasus to the port of Varna and 347 wagons on line from the port of Varna to the port of Caucasus.
 
As it was reported earlier, the line was opened on March 2, 2009. Bulgarian Transport Minister Petr Mutafchiev, Bulgarian Economics and Energy Minister Petr Dimitrov and Russian Head of Maritime and River Federal Agency Alexander Davydenko took part at the solemn opening of train ferry line between Russia and Bulgaria.
 
Vessel "Avangard" of CNF06 project with capacity of 45 wagons was built in 2009. Vessel "Slavyanin" of CNF09 project with capacity of 50 wagons was built in 2010.
 
Both of ferries are assigned for line from the the port of Caucasus (Russian Federation) to the port of Varna (Bulgaria) and can transport railway wagons and vehicles; dangerous goods of 1, 2, 3, 4.1, 4.2, 5, 6.1, 8, 9 classes; large-sized cargoes and 12 passengers also.
 
Ferries' projects CNF06 and CNF09 were designed by Marine Engineering Bureau (MEB).
 
Railway wagons are placed on five railway lines of upper deck.
 
Loading-unloading is of one-level type (as at almost all MEB designed train-ferries), that essentially reduces the vessel's building and the price of coast terminals and provides loading-unloading of train (45 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).
 
The vessels are of single-screw type. Operational speed is of 12.0 kn. Vessels have two thrusters.
 
Characteristics of CNF06 prj. ferry are as follows.
 
Vessel's overall length is of 133.67 m, length between perpendiculars is of 123.58 m, overall breadth is of 22.0 m, moulded breadth is of 21.0 m, depth is of 8.00 m.
 
Deadweight is about 5360 tons with cargo waterline draught of 4.80 m.
 
The deckhouse is located fore and engine-room is located aft; 2 main engines with capacity of 2200 kWt each work through reduction gear to variable-pitch propeller.
 
Tank-wagon (length between coupling gauges of 12020 mm) capacity is of 45 units.
Freight car (length between coupling gauges of 14730 mm) capacity is of 33 units.
Passenger car (length between coupling gauges of 24540 mm) capacity is of 20 units.
Open-top wagon (length between coupling gauges of 13920 mm) capacity is of 39 units.
Super-size automobiles capacity is of 58 units.
 
Characteristics of CNF09 prj. ferry are as follows.
 
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.
 
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.
 
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.
