    Okskaya Sudoverf lays down lead multi-purpose dry cargo carrier of Project RSD32M

    On 22 May 2018, Okskaya Sudoverf (a company of UCL Holding) laid down the lead multi-purpose 6,220 DWT dry cargo carrier of Project RSD32M ordered by PAO State Transport Leasing Company for Dimar Freight, says ship designer Marine Engineering Bureau.

    According to MEB classification, RSD32M ships have the class of "Azov five-thousander" and their key task is carrying 5,000-tonne batches of grain from the Azov and Caspian ports with the draft of 4.20 meters, typical for this region.
     
    Vessels of Project RSD32M are to replace the outdated and obsolete vessels of Sormovo and Volgo-Balt classes operating in this segment.
      
    RSD32M ships can be used for transportation of general and dry bulk cargo (including grain), bundled sawn timber, round timber, metal scrap, bundled and coiled metal, heavy and oversized cargo, coal, hazardous cargo of class 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.1, 8, 9 and category “B” on inland water ways of the Russian Federation in the Azov, Caspian, Black, Mediterranean, Baltic, White and North Seas including sailings around Europe and in the Irish Sea during winter season.
     
    Being shorter than Volgo-Don Max ships, RSD32M ships are cheaper to build and more economical to operate.
     
    With its class notation of the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping - КМ  Ice1 R2 AUT1-ICS CONT(deck, cargo holds Nos.1,2,3) DG (bulk, pack) – the ship complies with all requirements of international conventions in force at the time of the vessel's keel-laying.
     
    River deadweight with draft of 3.60 meters (typical for Volga-Don Ship Canal) is about 3,833 tonnes. Sea deadweight with draft of 4.20 meters (typical for Azov and Caspian ports) is about 5,157 tonnes. Maximum sea deadweight with draft of 4.745 meters is about 6,221 tonnes.
     
    LOA – 123.17 meters, BOA – 16.75 meters, depth – 5.50 meters, capacity of cargo holds – 8,804 cbm, number of holds – 3, speed – 10.0 knots, endurance in sea – 20 days, crew – 11. There is a cabin for a pilot.
     
    Expected service life of the hull - 24 years. Intensity of load calculated for the inner bottom – 10.0 t/sqm, clamshell operation is possible.
