April 29, 2013 Shipping Company "VF Tanker" (Managing Director Sergey Bryzgalov) decided to use the sixth and seventh serial tankers of "Volga-Don max" class project RST27 deadweight in the sea / river 7030/5428 tons of "VF Tanker — 16 "(building number 02706) and the" VF Tanker — 17 "(building number 02707).
Customer — shipping company "VFTanker" is a holding company VBTH, the majority shareholder of which is the international transport group Universal Cargo Logistics Holding, consolidating a number of Russian shipping, stevedoring and shipping companies.
RST27 project designed by the Marine Engineering Bureau.
Contract DWT 6980/5378 tons of the ship "VF Tanker — 11" was exceeded by 50 tons — in fact it was 7030/5428 tons. The rate on the tests was 11.7 knots.
In comparison with other projects MEB tanker RST27 new project has strengthened river function, increased by 716 tonnes deadweight in the river (when compared with the "Armada") at:
• Rugged housing (marine grade II or R2 district — the old classification MS);
• practically the same fuel consumption;
• maintaining high capacity cargo tanks.
Hull's theoretical forms are the product of the research work carried out by the Marine Engineering Bureau in cooperation with Digital Marine Technology in 2010, and established using methods of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD modeling).
Then the model of the future tanker was tested in experimental pool Central Research Institute. Acad. Krylov. The experiment was fully confirmed the theoretical results.
Like other tankers mixed swimming MEB, court RST27 project is used as a single means of movement and management of full-circle rudder rudder trunk of have developed, primenenyat freight submersible pumps, they have no longitudinal bulkhead in CL and set in the cargo tanks.

Just on May 5 was launched on the first of two tankers built VLCC (Very Large Crude Carrier), ordered a group of Sovcomflot (SCF). SKF is one of the world leaders in the segments of product tankers and oil tankers sizes "Aframax" and "Suezmax". With the construction of two new tankers Svet and SCF Shanghai company enters into a new segment of the largest in terms of tonnage of ships — class VLCC (deadweight of 300 thousand tons), which provides the current development strategy of GFR. Vessels of this size organically complement the existing structure of the fleet of the Russian shipping company, which will increase the competitiveness of the SCF on the world tanker market.
Tanker Svet be adopted in the autumn of 2013. Technical management of tankers, including monitoring of their construction, conducted by experts "Novoship" (a part of SCF). Building of ships of this class in Russia at the moment can not be.
The ship is named in honor of the first Russian oil tanker "Light" deadweight 1700 tons. It was built in 1885 by order of the firm "Nobel Brothers" for the transportation of oil and kerosene for export — the Black Sea from Baku. The ship was 89.5 meters long and 11.6 meters wide, the rig was 240 square meters, and the maximum speed of the tanker sailing — 7.5 knots. In the first crew of the Black Sea tankers were 50 sailors. It is the "Light", which became the first in the history of the Russian tanker, laid the foundations of tradition merchant marine.
