On October 19 at Nevsky Shipyard, the mooring trials of the single-deck dry-cargo vessel project RSD49 of the mixed "river-sea" navigation "Pola Sevastiana" began.
The construction of the vessel is carried out by the order of "Pola Rise", LLC (Russia).
The project was developed by “Marine Engineering Bureau-Design-SPb” CJSC.
1. The maximum length, m 139.95
2. Length between perpendiculars, m 135.74
3. Width, m 16.50 Height of the board, m 6.00
4. Draft, m (at sea / in the river) 4.70 / 3.60
5. Deadweight, t (at sea / in the river) 7143/4507
6. Autonomy, days 20
7. Range of navigation, miles 4000
8. Volume of cargo holds, m³ 10921
9. Number of holds 3
Purpose - sea and mixed (river-sea) carrying of the general and bulk cargoes, including steel, grain, timber, coal, large-dimension and heavy-weight cargoes and dangerous cargoes of classes 1.4S, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.1, 8, 9 by IC IMDG and Appendix B of the BC Code. A feature of the ship (opposed to all the other projects, "Volga-Don Max" class created by the Marine Engineering Bureau) is the presence of a large middle hold length 52.0 m, which allows to transport in direct flights Europe - Caspian oversized project cargo, which should significantly affect the overall of the financial results of work. At the same time the project vessels of RSD49 are the largest of dry cargo vessels which satisfy dimensions of the Volga-Don canal.
The vessel is named after the holy martyr of Sevastiana, a disciple of the apostle Paul.
