Krasnoe Sormovo signed contracts with Caspian Marine Services for two RST27 tankers



Due to information from press-service of "Krasnoe Sormovo" Shipyard (Nizhniy Novgorod), this shipyard with assistance of "Maritime and oil-gas projects" Group of Companies (Dmitriy Khritin is a general director) signed contracts with Caspian Marine Services concerning construction of two RST27 tankers. Due to the contracts, tankers should be handed over to the Customer during 2016-2017.
 
"Krasnoe Sormovo" Shipyard (Nikolay Zharkov is a general director).
 
Thus, this moment Krasnoe Sormovo is building six RST27 tankers. Taking into consideration more two RST27 tankers that are under construction at Oka Shipyard, 40 (!!!) "super fat" RST27 tankers should be under operation till 2017 (there is the biggest civil vessels series in post-Soviet period).
 
Project RST27 was designed by Marine Engineering Bureau.
 
Britain Royal Institution of Naval Architects included RST27 in the list of the best vessels of the year (Significant Ships of 2012 and Significant Ships of 2013).
 
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 "Volga-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 vessels are assigned for transportation of crude oil and oil products, without flash point restrictions, also chemicals in bulk.
 
Total capacity of six cargo tanks and two slop ones is of 8100 cub. m, deadweight is about 7022 tons with sea draught of 4.20 m. Deadweight is about 5420 tons with river draught of 3.60 m. Cruising speed is of 11.0 knots.
 
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.
 
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).
