Pola Anatolia, dry cargo ship of RSD59 design, successfully passed sea trials
Single-deck dry cargo vessel project RSD59 mixed "river-sea" navigation "Pola Anatolia" has successfully completed sea trials, says press center of Nevsky Shipyard.
Pola Anatolia is the lead ship in a series of five dry cargo carriers under a trilateral contract with State Transport Leasing Company as a customer and shipping company Pola Rise as a leaseholder.
The RSD59 prj. was designed by Marine Engineering Bureau.
RSD59 vessels refer to the "Volga-Don Max" type due to MEB internal classification. They have maximum possible dimensions for the Volga-Don Canal.
The new dry-cargo project RSD59, which is constructed in "super-full" ship lines with two dry cargo holds, one of which has a record length for Volgo-Don Max vessels, is the successor of the three-hold RSD49 series. At the same time, according to the displacement of the RSD59 vessels, they are by far the largest of dry cargo vessels satisfying the dimensions of the Volga-Don shipping channel.
