Dry-cargo vessel "Tyumen" of 005RSD06.04 project was launched by Kherson shipyard
On February 8, 2011 dry-cargo vessel "Tyumen" of 005RSD06.04 project with deadweight of 6387 tons was launched by Kherson shipyard.
Project 005RSD06.04 (prj. 005RSD06.01 modified according to the new RRR requirements) is designed by the Marine Engineering Bureau (MEB).
Designing and construction supervision is being carried out by Verkhnya-Volga branch of RRR (Valeriy Lobastov is the head of branch).
Vessel's Russian River Register class notation is of M-SP 3.5 M-SP 3.5, which allows to make international voyages through Black, Mediterranean, Baltic and others Seas. It completely pays off traditional commercial geography of river-sea going vessel's operation, within boundaries of class restrictions.
005RSD06.04 prj. vessel has double bottom and double sides, belongs to so-called "Volga-Don Max" type due to MEB internal classification, the principal particulars of which (overall length is of 137.52 m, breadth is of 16.5 m) are caused by dimensions of the Volga-Don navigation canal locks. Due to reasonable reduction of vessel's class decrease of metal amount for hull was reached. That allowed to provide record (for newly built vessel) deadweight for Volgo-Don Canal specific draught of 3.6 m.
The series is built by Kherson shipyard (hull) and "Concord Shipping" company (vessel completing) for the Russian River Register class of the M-SP 3.5 with the satisfying the requirements of active International Conventions.
Lead vessel "Chelsea-3" of 005RSD06.01 project has successfully been operated since February 17, 2006. Initial vessel "Chelsea-2" of 005RSD06 project has been operated since February 21, 2005.
The vessel "Tyumen" is optimized for work with draughts of 3.2-4.19 m. The maximum deadweight of 005RSD06.04 prj. with draught of 4.19 m (depth is of 5.5 m, coamings' height is of 3.5 m) is of 6387 tons, with river draught of 3.60 m deadweight is of 4940 tons.
The dry-cargo vessel is assigned for transportation of general, bulk, timber, grain and large-sized cargoes and dangerous goods of 1.4S, 2.2, 4.1, 4.2, 5.1, 6.1, 8 and 9 classes. The vessel has four holds with total capacity of 9780 cub m that allows to transport cargoes with the big stowage factor volume without any loss of cargo capacity. The double bottom is designed for distributed load intensity of 6.5 t per sq. m.
Double sides breadth is of 2.15 - 1.69 m, double bottom height is of 0.9 m.
Total ballast tanks capacity is of 3225 cub. m.
Two main engines (medium speed) with capacity of 852 kw each provide cruising speed of 10 kn. Fixed-pitch propellers are in turned nozzles.
Vessel's "Tyumen" (building number is of 08123) keel was laid down on 23.12.04. She was launched on 08.02.2011.
