SCHOTTEL PROPULSION FOR 11 RUSSIAN CARGO SHIPS

Friday, April 26, 2019 

Schottel has secured a contract with Russian Krasnoye Sormovo Shipyard to provide propulsion units for 11 newly built cargo vessels.

Each vessel will be equipped with two rudderpropellers type SRP 340 FP (1,200 kW each) and one transverse thruster type STT 170 FP (230 kW).

The main propulsion of the multipurpose dry cargo vessels consists of a pair of diesel engines, each driving a SRP 340 FP with an input power of 1,200 kW at 1,000 rpm for a free sailing speed of approximately 10 knots.

The 141.0 m long and 16.9 m wide vessels designed by the Russian company Marine Engineering Bureau offer a capacity of 11,200 m³ as well as 7,445 dwt at sea draught (4.50m) and 5,112 dwt in river draught (3.60m). The new vessels are characterised by a particularly high block coefficient, ensuring an optimal combination of speed, load capacity and required propulsive power.

Each of the self-propelled dry cargo vessels has two cargo holds, intended for the carriage of general containerised cargo, timber, grain, oversize cargo and dangerous goods. The carriers will transport dry cargo over Russian rivers (such as the Volga and the Don) as well as the Mediterranean, Black and Caspian Seas.
