Navigation area — inland waterways of Russia and the appropriate navigation area about 2.0.

Bunkering tanker is a steel-deck twin-screw-propelled ship with the add tank and poop, with transom aft end, with the main engines and living in the wheelhouse aft, double bottom and double sides and trunk in the cargo tanks and bow thruster.

The vessel has the following main features:

Capacity of cargo tanks for oil — about 56 m²;
Capacity slop — 26 m²;
Ballast tank — 521 m²;
Performance cargo pumps for diesel fuel — 50 m³ / h each;
Performance cargo pumps for lubricating oils — 25 m³ / h each;
Speed — about 16.6 km / h;

RRR class: (*) About 2.0 (Ice 30) A.

In the stern of the ship with 2 FPP and 2 balancing wheel on the heels of providing a vessel specified speed and handling. To improve handling at low speeds, when passing narrow waters and mooring the vessel for bow thruster of the "screw in the pipe" with fixed pitch propeller power of 55 kW.

Main propulsion plant consists of two diesel engines maximum continuous capacity of 221 kW each.

As an electro-hydraulic steering gear, steering gear is used.

For the supply and removal of hoses, lifting and lowering the outboard gangway, installation boom mounted hydraulic crane with a lifting capacity of 1.0 tons of boom 12 m

To prevent contamination of the environment in the event of a spillage of cargo during loading operations, the ship provided the ship set against an oil spill (BRN).

Cargo system provides indoor reception cargo shore-based facilities and the delivery of cargo ship submersible pumps. The system provides freight, loading and unloading at the same time for 4 varieties of cargo: two types of diesel and two kinds of lubricating oil.

The ship's crew — 7 people.

Bookmark the lead ship Project RT18 (building number 10901) was held on 13/03/13.
