V.F. Tanker starts operation of the new project RST54 vessel
On 27 April, the combined platform tanker ‘Volga-Flot 10’ of project RST54 (yard number 5404) has left the berth of the Park Parizhskoy Kommuny Shipyard (Nizhny Novgorod region) to take its first voyage. The motor ship is heading for Saratov to load diesel fuel.
‘Volga-Flot 10’ was built under order of Volga Shipping —ompany at Okskaya Sudoverf (Shipyard “Oka”) and delivered for operation and maintenance to the shipping company V.F. Tanker late November 2015.
This state-of-the-art all-purpose motor ship combines the functionality of an oil tanker and a dry cargo vessel and makes it possible to perform round voyages with maximum cargo loading at both ends.
During the 2015 navigation the company’s crews operated the first three motor ships of the new series to carry petroleum products and crushed stone in the North Basin of the Unified Deep Water System of European Russia. From April till October 2015, the project RST54 vessels ‘Balt Flot 1’ (yard number 5401), ‘Balt Flot 2’ (yard number 5402), and ‘Balt Flot 3’ (yard number 5403) carried more than 250 thousand ton of cargoes.
Background: Together with the new ship accepted for service, the V.F. Tanker’s fleet includes over 80 vessels of the total deadweight of around 400,000 ton.
V.F. Tanker Ltd., Volga Shipping —ompany and Okskaya Sudoverf (Shipyard “Oka”) form part of VBTH — the shipping division of the UCL Holding international transportation group which consolidates a whole range of Russian shipping, railway, stevedore and logistic companies.
