The vessel is the seventh tanker of "Armada" type, which was built at "ADA" shipyard (there are ten vessels in the series in total).
Vessel's keel was laid down on 18.04.2005, she was launched on 17.01.2006.
Vessel's Russian Maritime Register of Shipping class notation is of KM LU1 II A1. Vessel's flag is Russian, port of registry is Taganrog.
Vessel's project is designed by the Marine Engineering Bureau (MEB).
Tanker is assigned for river-sea going transportations of crude oil, masout, diesel oil and other petroleum products, vegetable oil and also for sea transportation in Baltic, North, Black, Caspian and Mediterranean Seas.
Using full-circle rudder propellers as movement and manoeuvre facilities, using submersible pumps in cargo and ballast systems, full absence of a framing in cargo tanks are characteristic features vessels of "Armada" type. These vessels have no longitudinal bulkhead in CL.
Traditionally launch was carried out without rudder propellers, which would be mounted during next fitting out.
