Brothers Nobel Shipyard launched high comfortable PV09 cruise passenger vessel "Tanais" with "M-Pr" class
Brothers Nobel Shipyard (Rybinskl) launched high comfortable PV09 cruise passenger vessel "Tanais" (building No. 100) with "M-Pr" class. Vessel's keel was laid down on 18.03.2014. Vessel is going to be towed to the Moscow Shipyard for construction completion.
Technical project PV09 was designed by Marine Engineering Bureau.
PV09 cruise passenger vessel is intended for cruise voyage through European inland waterways of Russia, including Volgo-Balt, Volgo-Don, Belomor-Baltiysk Canal, Volga river, Moscow River; also at lines between Moscow port, St.-Petersburg port and Belomorsk port through Belomor-Baltiysk Canal; with sailing to White Sea and to the region of islands Solovetskie, Gulf of Finland; Caspian, Azov and Black Seas.
Vessel's air draught allows sailing under bridges of Moscow River.
Vessel is a triple deck type, with vertical stem and transom aft end, with double-tier middle located deck-house, with wheel-house located fore, with ER located aft, with diesel-electric power unit, with 2 full-turned rudder propellers, with fore bow thrusters, with "Ice 20" ice category.
Vessel's main particulars are as follows:
Length overall is 95.88 m.
Length due design WL is 94.30 m;
Breadth overall is about 13.80 m;
Breadth due design WL is 13.00 m;
Depth (main deck) is 3.80 m;
Air draught at draught of 1.8 m is 8.80 m;
Draught due to design WL is 1.80 m;
Displacement due to design WL is 1860 t;
Autonomy is 10 days;
Decks' number is 3 living ones and single promenade one;
Operational speed is about 22.5 km/h;
Maximal speed is about 23.8 km/h;
RRR class notation is M-PR 2.5 (ice 20) A.
Movement and manoeuvrability of the vessel is provided by two stern full-circle rudder propellers with double fixed-pitch propeller. There are two propulsion motors of 1200 KWt electrical capacity each; mechanical power on each drive shaft is of 1100 KWt.
Main power unit is of diesel-electric type. It consists of 4 main diesel-generators of 830 KWt of electrical capacity each; they serve main electrical vessel's system.
To improve manoeuvrability at low speed, during passing the narrow waters and during mooring operations the bow thruster of the "screw in the pipe" type with fixed pitch propeller with input capacity of 55 kW is provided.
Keel of PV09 vessel "Tanais" (building No. 100) was laid down on 18.03.14; vessel was launched on 25.10.2014.
