The Fifth Dry-Cargo Carrier Stapled at Onezhsky Plant

January 18, 2010

In the end of December, 2009, the afterbody of the fifth DCV33 project multi-purpose dry-cargo carrier (deadweight 4570 tons) was stapled at Onezhsky Shipbuilding Plant.

The construction started on June 5, 2009. The project was designed by the Marine Engineering Bureau.

The ship is classified as a European coaster meeting commercial and port requirements for EU interportal transportation. It features with standard length up to 85 m, gross tonnage up to 3000 tons, maximum deadweight for this ship class (about 4500 t), and one cargo hold.

DCV33 project ship is designated for all navigating zones and freight of general and bulk cargoes (including 20- and 40-feet international standard containers with height of 9 feet, metal, cereals, wood, coal, bulky and heavy cargoes, 1.4S, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.1, 8, 9 class and Annex B of Code BC dangerous goods).

High ice class (E2) which is equivalent to ЛУ3 according to RS offers the possibility of operation at the Baltic and White Sea in winter. Icebreaking capability, hull form and its structural strength as well as main engine capacity are in full compliance with the new requirements of the Finnish-Swedish Ice Class Rules.

The ship is equipped with a single shaft, 3 meter variable pitch propeller, cruising speed not less 11.5 knots, main engine capacity (MSE) – 1950 kW. Prime fuel is IFO380. Transverse thruster capacity is 170 kW. Sea endurance is 30 days. Crew consists of 11 persons (12 places).

Genuine location of water ballast ranks ensured compliance with SOLAS requirements for compartmentalization probability index inclusive of GL additional intact stability requirements. Power plant is represented by one 300 kW shaft generator, two diesel-generators having capacity 180 kW each and one 90 kW emergency diesel-generator.

Private shipping companies focused on European trade except for river navigation are very interested in ships of such class. It should be taken into account that under the EU coastal navigation conditions these ships are more effective than mixed ships which are familiar to our ship-owners.
