PROJECT RST27: mixed river-sea navigation tanker designed and built in constructive cooperation with V.F.Tanker specialists. With its increased deadweight and block coefficient, the vessel falls into the Volgo-Don max class. The overall dimensions of the vessel meet the standards of the Volga-Don Ship Canal and the Volga-Baltic Waterway. The vessel design incorporates the requirements placed by Russian and international oil companies, and the additional environmental restrictions of the ECO PROJECT (ECO-S) class of the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping.
