Onega shipyard started the building of lead tanker with DW 7100
On May 20, 2011 the keel of lead product tanker (building No. 701) of RST07 project with deadweight about 7100 was laid down at Onega shipyard (Vladimir Mayzus is a general director).
RST07 project was designed by the Marine Engineering Bureau (MEB).
The new series vessels are logical continuation of 005RST01 project tankers known as first series "Armada" which were designed by the Marine Engineering Bureau for Palmali group of companies and which were built on "SELAH" and "ADA" shipyards in Tuzla (Turkey) in 2002-2006 and modification of second series tankers of RST22 project which were built on "Krasnoe Sormovo" shipyard (Nizhny Novgorod) in 2008-2009. Ten vessels of 005RST01 prj., seven vessels of RST22 prj. And two vessels of RST22M prj have been built at Beshiktash Shipyard in total during 2010-2011.
"Armada" type tankers of the first series and "New Armada" type tankers of the second series are successfully operated on the river-sea and sea transportations in Caspian, Black, Mediterranean, Baltic and North Seas, including voyages around 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 pumps, absence of longitudinal bulkhead in CL, full absence of a framing in cargo tanks, developed trunk are characteristic features of RST07, RST22M, RST22 and 005RST01 vessels' projects.
Vessels satisfy dimensions of the Volga-Don Canal and Volga-Baltic Way. Overall RST22M 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.
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" (ECO-S) class were taken into consideration during designing.
Hull's theoretical forms were defined using calculating hydromechanics methods (CFD modeling).
Total capacity of six cargo tanks and two slop ones is of 8090 cub. m, deadweight is about 7050 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.
RST07 vessel's project Russian Maritime Register of shipping class notation is KM Ice 2 R2 AUT1 COMBO oil tanker (ESP) ECO-S.
Keel of lead of RST07 project (building No. is of 701) was laid down on 20.05.11.
