Nizhniy Novgorod Shipyard "Krasnoe Sormovo" signed contract for building two "super-fat" RST27 chemical-tankers for "Volgotrans" Shipping Company


According to the information-analytical agency "Portnews", on October 27, 2015, "Krasnoe Sormovo" Shipyard, OJSE "Volgotrans" and CJSC "Goznak-leasing" signed two tripartite contracts for delivering two "super-fat" RST27 chemical-tankers. The contracts were signed with the assistance of Marine and Oil/Gas Projects Group of Companies.
 
According to the contracts, Nizhny Novgorod Shipyard should build two "super-fat" RST27 vessels for OJSE "Volgotrans" Shipping Company. Vessels' delivering to the customer is scheduled for 2017. CJSC "Goznak-leasing" is a lessor for contracts.
 
RST27 prj. is designed by Marine Engineering Bureau. Project was enhanced for methanol type cargoes in bulk transportation.
 
RST27 vessels have the record block coefficient 0.93, but the head vessel showed speed of 11.7 kn during trials at running line with main engines power of 2100 kW (87.5% of full output) and fore/aft draughts 3.2/3.3 m.
 
Thus the contract deadweight of 6980/5378 is increased for 42 t, contract speed is increased more than 1 kn.
 
New project tanker has increased river function comparing with other MEB projects. River deadweight of RST27 vessels is increased for 732 t comparing to Armadas, while:
 
• increased hull's strength (vessel is of R2 sailing region, or II region due to old RS classification);
• practically keeping the same fuel consumption;
• keeping increase capacity of cargo tanks.
 
Russian Maritime Registry of Shipping class notation is KM Ice1 R2 AUT1-ICS OMBO VCS ECO-S Oil tanker /Chemical tanker type 2 (ESP).
 
As other river-sea going MEB tankers, RST27 vessels use full-circle rudder propellers as single movement and manoeuvre unit. They have increased trunk and use submersible cargo pumps. They have no longitudinal bulkhead in CL and no framing in cargo tanks.
 
RST27 vessels satisfy dimensions of the Volga-Don Canal and Volga-Baltic Way. Overall RST27 vessel length is of 140.85 m, breadth is of 16.6 m, depth is of 6.0 m. They belong to "Volgo-Don Max" class.
 
Special requirements of the Russian and world petroleum companies, additional ecological RS limitations of "ECO PROJECT" (ECO-S) class were taken into consideration during designing.
 
RST27 "Victoria" vessel is assigned for transportation of crude oil and oil products, without flash point restrictions, also chemicals in bulk.
 
Cargo system provides simultaneously transportation of 2 cargoes. Cargo pumps capacity is 6 x 200 cub. m/hour. Two auxiliary steam boilers (capacity 2.5 t/hour each) are installed onboard.
 
Two medium-speed diesels (main engine) of 1200 kW each use heavy fuel oil with viscosity IFO380. There is 230 kW bow thruster.
 
Two medium-speed diesels (main engine) of 1200 kW each use heavy fuel oil with viscosity IFO380. There is 230 kW bow thruster.
 
Electrical plant consists of three 292 kW diesel-generators and emergency-staying 136 kW diesel-generator.
 
Crew consists of 12 persons (14 places + pilot).
 
Autonomy is of 20/12 days (sea/river).
