    Lotus is building two vessels of Project RST25 with participation of Goznak-Leasing CJSC as the lessor and Moscow River Shipping Company as the lessee.
      
    Unlike the first two vessels, this one’s design has been modified to build a tanker – oil product carrier – chemical tanker IMO2. Apart from the conventional oil cargo it will be able to carry also vegetable oils and chemical cargo.  

    As of today, five vessels of this project operate at inland water ways, in the Caspian, Black and Mediterranean Seas. The vessels were built by Rybinsk based Nobel Brothers Shipyard (three ships) and Zelenodolsk Shipyard (two ships). 

    When designing the RST25 tankers the naval engineering firm took into account special requirements of the Russian and international oil companies and environmental requirements of the Russian River Register ECO 3 (CLEAN DESIGN - DNV). 
     
    The vessels of Project RST25 are intended for mixed river-sea transportation of crude oil and petroleum products, including gasoline, with no flash point limits and cargo temperature of 60°С, as well as vegetable oils and chemical cargo. Simultaneous transportation of 2 sorts of cargo is provided.  
     
    The vessels of Project RST25 of Volga-Don Max classmeet the dimensions of the Volga-Don Ship Canal and Volga-Baltic Waterway. LOA - 139.99 m, beam - 16.6 m, depth - 5.5 m.
      
    As compared with other projects, the new tanker features an increased river function, deadweight increased by 410 tonnes versus Armada series. The vessel’s main characteristics: capacity of six cargo tanks and two slop tanks – 6,990 cubic meters, sea / river DWT – 6,610 / 5,130  tonnes with draft of 4.17 / 3.6 m, operational speed – 10.5 knots, endurance  - 20 days, crew 12 (14)..
     
    The vessel is equipped with two medium-speed diesels, 1,200 kW each, operating on IFO380. 

    The lead ship of Project RST25, the Sergei Terskov (hull No 25004) was laid down at Lotus on September 6, 2011 and launched on July 24, 2015.
     
    The second ship of Project RST25, the Yakov Gunin (Hull No 25005) was laid down on September 26, 2015.

    The third ship (hull No 25006) was laid down on March 25, 2016.
