Russia’s first “green” tanker Vladimir Monomakh is ready for sea trials

Jun 11 2020


Launched at the Zvezda Shipyard on May 12, the first Russian tanker of Aframax type Vladimir Monomakh is ready for sea trials.

The tests will include checking the reliability and vital functions of power generating systems, navigation equipment and deck machinery, as well as controllability, stability and other functions.

 

 

Vladimir Monomakh was supplied with more than 300 tonnes of high performance green DMF type III fuel for sea trials and mooring tests. It contains no more than 0.5% of sulphur which is fully compliant with the requirements of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL). Fuel was produced at the Rosneft’s Komsomolsk refinery. The bunkering of a vessel of this class was first performed by Rosneft Bunker. The tanker was refueled in compliance with all maritime and environmental safety regulations.

 

 

Vladimir Monomakh is a powerful new-generation tanker designed to transport oil in unrestricted navigation. The vessel is designed in compliance with high environmental safety standards. The main and additional power supply units can operate on both traditional and green fuel, the liquefied natural gas, which meets new world environmental standards. A high level of environmental friendliness is the reason why the Aframax type tanker is called “green”.

 

 

The length of the vessel is 250 metres, width 44 metres, deadweight 114 thousand tonnes, speed 14.6 knots, ice class ICE-1A. In total, there is a series of 12 tankers of the Aframax type in the order book of Zvezda complex. At the moment, four of them are under construction at the shipyard.
