    On 8 September 2017, Krasnoye Sormovo shipyard launched the chemical carrier of Project RST27М, Balt Flot 17, says press center of BF Tanker LLC.

    The ceremony was attended by top-ranked guests, heads and employees of all companies involved in designing, representatives of the customer and citizens of Krasnoye Sormovo.  

    Nataliya Dunets,  manager of Rosneft’s Department for Marine and River Transportation, served as the ship’s godmother. 
     
    The Balt Flot 17 is the second vessel in the series of five chemical carriers of Project RST27M to be built by Krasnoye Sormovo in 2017-2018 for BF Tanker. 

    RST27M ships are improved chemical carriers with a capacity increased by 800 t (as compared with RST27 ships) able to transport crude oil, oil products and noxious liquid substances in six cargo tanks (with simultaneous carriage of three types of cargo).


    The tanker design takes into account special requirements of Russian and international oil companies as well as additional environmental restrictions of Russian Maritime Register of Shipping «ECO PROJECT» (ECO-S).

    The vessels are designed for mixed (river-sea) navigation. Main particulars of Project RST27M: LOA: 140.8 m, breadth: 16.9 m, DWT in fresh water (draft 3.6 m): 5,337 tonnes, DWT in salt water (draft 4.6 m): 7,875 tonnes.

    The vessel was designed by Marine Engineering Bureau to RS class: КМ  Ice1  1   R2 AUT1-ICS OMBO VCS ECO-S Oil tanker/Chemical tanker type 2 (ESP). Detailed design was provided by Nizhny Novgorod based engineering firm Volga-Caspian Design Bureau. 

    According to Sergey Chaplygin, Chairman of BF Tanker BoD, the company is one of the largest owners of a cutting-edge and innovative fleet. Subsidies provided to cover credit rates the lease payments allowed the company to implement the programme on construction of 15 state-of-the-art units.

    He said that the system of state measures to support shipbuilding and shipping have encouraged the market players to increase the number of state-of-the-art vessels registered under the Russian flag and the number of jobs as well as to replenish the regional and the federal budgets. “It should be noted that development of shipbuilding in Russia is among the priorities of state policy while the business counts on efficient operation of the industry and investment prospects”, - he said, adding “We are focused on further development and continued construction, therefore we hope that the subsidy program to cover part of the lease=ing interest rate will be resumed”.

    BF Tanker Ltd. owns the most advanced and state-of-the-art fleet in Russia. It partners with the leading global traders and cargo owners and is not going to be satisfied with what has already been achieved. The company is set to build up its volumes and expand its fleet in the future.

    Krasnoye Sormovo PJSC is one of the oldest shipbuilding companies in Russia, founded in 1849. Throughout the 75-year period, more than three hundred submarines and rescue vehicles including 25 nuclear ones have been built and modernized by Krasnoye Sormovo shipyard. Today, Krasnoye Sormovo builds vessels of commercial fleet meeting the requirements of international conventions on reliability and safety. Some of Krasnoye Sormovo tankers are in the list of Significant Ships of the Year by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA).
