Nevsky Shipyard started sea trials of dry cargo vessel Pola Sevastiana

The vessel was built at Nevsky Shipyard for Pola Rise, LLC (Russia). Dry cargo vessel project was developed by JSC "Marine Engineering Bureau".

Function - sea and mixed (river-sea) transportation of general and bulk cargo, including metal, grain, timber, coal, bulky and heavy cargo, dangerous cargo of Classes 1.4S, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.1, 8, 9 and B of BC Code.

At the same time the project vessels of RSD49 are by far the largest of dry cargo vessels which satisfy dimensions of the Volga-Don canal.

Main dimensions:

  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
