Today, March 26, Oka shipyard launched the eighth serial tanker "Volga-Don max" class project RST27 deadweight in the sea / river 7030/5428 tons of "VF Tanker — 18" (building number 02708). Customer — shipping company "VFTanker." RST27 project designed by the Marine Engineering Bureau.
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:
- ruggedized housing (marine grade II or R2 district — the old classification MS);
- substantially the same fuel;
- 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).
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.
Vessels of RST27 meet the dimensions of the Volga-Don Canal and Volga-Baltic Waterway. Overall length of 140.85 m, width — 16.6 m, depth — 6.0 m
In the design takes into account the special requirements of Russian and international oil companies, additional environmental constraints class of Russian Maritime Register of Shipping "ECO PROJECT" (ECO-S).
RST27 craft project designed for the transportation of crude oil and petroleum products without restrictions for flash.
As the main engines are two medium-speed diesels to 1200 kW, operating on heavy fuel oil with a viscosity of IFO380. Thruster — 230 kW. The power plant consists of three diesel generators from 292 kW emergency diesel generator parking 136 kW.
Crew — 12 people, places — 14 + pilot. Autonomy (in the sea / river) — 20/12 days.
RST27 craft project meets the requirements of the class of Russian Maritime Register of Shipping KM Ice1 R2 AUT1-ICS OMBO VCS ECO-S Oil tanker (ESP).
Whole Plant to be built fifteen tankers project RST27.
