    Those floating power stations might become an in demand item next winter when northern hemisphere countries start to get cold again with shortages of energy... a Russian barge that could be sailed from the north sea to New York or London and plugged into the electricity grid to boost power and generate hot water for heating at the same time would be quite valuable for a price... but their politicians probably would rather their citizens freeze...

    Russia would have use of such barges anyway...

    Not only.
    There was an info this week that two more Arktika class icebreakers will be ordered, and 60 bln rubles have already been allocated for that.
    That gives us a view for a price range, and shows again the level of real spending efficiency.

    16 november 2022.
    There are currently 297 vessels under construction in Russia. The total need for vessels, according to preliminary estimates, is 1200 units.
    Boris Kabakov, Director of the Shipbuilding Industry and Marine Engineering Department of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, provided data on the construction of ships during the "Transport Week-2022". The official noted that there are risks of non-compliance with construction deadlines for a number of projects.
    73 fishing vessels are under construction (seven of them are planned to be commissioned in 2022), a nuclear icebreaker, rescue and passenger fleet, and river-sea class vessels are being built. The portfolio of orders of the Zvezda shipbuilding complex, specializing in large-tonnage shipbuilding, is 64 vessels.
    Currently, the approximate need for vessels is estimated at 1200 units with an upward forecast.
    Important issues, according to the representative of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, are the creation of new shipbuilding facilities, the unification of ship designs and import substitution of ship components
    .

    Rosatom is developing a gas tanker for year-round operation on the Northern Sea Route

    The estimated cost of the project is 21 billion rubles.


    Moscow, February 15 - IA Neftegaz.RU. Rosatom is developing a project 10070 large -tonnage gas carrier for year-round transportation of liquefied gas along the Northern Sea Route ( NSR ). This was reported by TASS Director for Shipbuilding and Optimized Floating Power Units of Atomenergomash (AEM, Rosatom's machine-building division) V. Aptekarev.

    in the division are carried out over the project 10070M gas carrier;
    in terms of energy and propulsion and steering complex, the gas carrier will use components produced at Russian enterprises;
    estimated cost - 21 billion rubles;
    the decision to develop an LNG carrier was made on the basis of an analysis of the global LNG tanker market ;
    the study showed that all LNG carrier projects in the world are foreign;
    now there is a need to develop a Russian project, which will use the component equipment developed in Russia.

    Main characteristics and main dimensions of the project 10070 gas carrier
    length - 305 m;
    width - 50 m;
    the volume of transported LNG - about 170 thousand m 3 ;
    maximum speed in clear water - 21.3 knots (at 100% power);
    the tanker will look like a thermos;
    on a ship of similar dimensions, for the first time, insert tanks of type B will be used;
    tanks will be assembled separately, isolated and installed in the hull of an already prepared vessel;
    to minimize capacity losses and optimize ship hull structures in the production of tanks, it was decided to use composite materials;
    the use of composites allows:
    achieve the necessary physical and mechanical characteristics,
    lighten the whole structure,
    reduce its size.

    Icebreaking
    In order to increase the icebreakability and expand the operating window for independent navigation along the NSR:

    the propulsion system, including the ship's contours, were optimized,
    the vessel's ice class has been upgraded from Arc7 to Arc8.

    Arc8
    independent navigation in close-knit 1-year and 2-year Arctic ice at their thickness:
    up to 2.1 m in winter-spring navigation,
    up to 3.1 m in summer-autumn;
    overcoming ice barriers by work raids;
    navigation in the channel behind the icebreaker in 2-year-old arctic ice thickness:
    up to 3.4 m in winter-spring navigation,
    without restrictions in multi-year ice during summer-autumn navigation.

    Import substitution

    Initially, the gas carrier was supposed to be as import-substituting as possible.
    Imported components were planned to be used only for:
    propulsion systems (propulsion system or installation):
    power complex of the ship, consisting of several main parts:
    Hull,
    mover,
    shaft drive;
    engine.
    But after February 2022, project 10070 had to be amended.

    In the modernized project 10070M, the following can be used:
    steam-gas cycle with the use of gas boilers coupled with a steam turbine plant,
    similar to the one that is now being installed on serial nuclear icebreakers;
    this will increase the degree of localization of production, as dual-fuel diesel engines standard for this type of vessels are not produced in Russia and most likely will not be produced in the next 10-12 years;
    the same applies to the propulsion-steering complex,
    to solve this problem, we decided to slightly change the design so that a Russian-made complex could be installed.
    All key equipment of the cargo containing system, including the cargo handling system, is either already produced in Russia, in particular at Rosatom enterprises, or production can be launched in the near future:
    the upgraded gas carrier will be almost completely assembled from Russian components;
    although, unfortunately, some commercial characteristics may be reduced when compared with the original project;
    however, he stressed, there is no other option for today;
    dual-fuel diesel generators in the world are supplied by manufacturers such as Wärtsilä and MAN, which no longer deliver to the Russian Federation;
    an alternative in the form of Chinese licensed engines is possible, but there is no guarantee that China will be able to mass-produce them.

    Gas carrier construction

    it will be possible to talk about the transition to the tanker construction stage only after the design and development works are completed;
    it is too early to talk about specific dates;
    as for the shipyard where it will be possible to lay a ship of such dimensions, we can only talk about the Zvezda shipbuilding complex ,
    it is the only large-tonnage shipbuilding yard in Russia capable of building such ships;
    to begin with, it is necessary that the vessel has a formalized customer:
    today there is a positive reaction to the project of a major Russian shipowner,
    some oil and gas companies have also shown interest.

    23 March
    RF Government to allocate RUB 70 billion for subsidizing the purchase of 85 ships by 2034 — media

    The programme is to cover second-hand and new ships of foreign origin, first of all 60 bulkers including 12 Capesize ships

    The Government of the Russian Federation is developing a programme to subsidise interest rates on loans for the purchase of 85 ships for export/import operations of Russia. The banks are to provide over RUB 150 billion, RUB 70 billion to be subsidized by the Government, according to Kommersant referring to its sources.

    The programme is to cover second-hand and new ships of various sizes and types, first of all 60 bulkers including 12 Capesize ships. Under consideration are 7-9 containerships, 7 multipurpose ships and 15 tankers no larger than Aframax ships. No types of cargo are specified for the latter while the sources say the programme does not cover oil tankers.

    The Government will subsidize up to 9 percentage points of the commercial rate. With the Government’s subsidy the banks will be able to provide soft loans at the rate of 4%. According to the revised document, a subsidy can be provided if the share of cargo transported in the framework foreign economic activity is not below 50% of the total volume carried over the reported period.

    In 2023-2024, RUB 24.3 billion is to be allocated from the reserve fund of the Government. Then, up to 2034, the allocations will be financed under the state programme “Transport System Development” which is to be increase by about RUB 46 billion for that purpose. According to another source of the newspaper, allocations will total RUB 5 billion in 2023 and RUB 30 billion in 2024.

    Lead container ship of Project 00108 for North-South ITC laid down in Astrakhan
    May 4, 2023
    Russian Civil Shipbuilding Sector - Page 17 Image48

    It is Russia’s first design of a dry bulk / container carrier able to transport containers of international standard

    Shipbuilding Plant “Lotos” of USC’s Southern Center of Shipbuilding and Ship Repair (Lotos Shipyard) has laid down the first of four multipurpose dry bulk / container carriers of Project 00108, according to USC.

    The ceremony was attended by Astrakhan Region Governor Igor Babushkin, Chairman of USC BoD Georgy Poltavchenko, head of the Federal Marine and River Transport Agency  Zakhary Djioyev, etc

    Project 00108 was developed by Nizhny Novgorod based design bureau Vympel (an asset of USC). It is Russia’s first design of a dry bulk / container carrier able to transport that number of containers of international standard including reefer containers.

    The ship is of Volgo-Don Max class with the maximum possible dimensions and displacement to transit the Volga-Don Canal.

    Key particulars: LOA — 141 m, BOA — 16.9 m, depth — 6.3 m, capacity of holds – 12,000 cbm, deadweight (sea) — 9,200 t (with draft of 5.3 m), deadweight (river) – 5,000 t (with draft of 3.6 m), speed — 10 knots; propulsion – two diesel engines of 1,200 kW and two pod drives produced by Zvezdochka. Two auxiliary diesel generators of 400 kW each can supply power for 60 reefer containers.

    According to earlier statements, the shipbuilding contract for construction of four multipurpose dry bulk / container carriers of Project 00108 was signed in December 2022. Each ship costs RUB 1.74 billion. Two ships are to be delivered in 2024, two — in 2025. Each ship costs RUB 1.741 billion. As Ilya Volynsky, Minister of Industry, Trade and Energy of the Astrakhan Region, said in March 2023, the series may be increased to 21 units. In April 2023, David Adamia, Deputy General Director for Civil Shipbuilding, United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC), said that at least 45 new container ships of Volgo-Don Max class are needed for the operation of North-South international transport corridor (ITC) crossing the Caspian Sea. Their total cost is estimated at over RUB 78 billion. The current plans foresee the construction of only 25 ships. The preliminary order portfolio of USC numbers 130 ships for the North-South corridor.
    ...
    North-South international transport corridor (ITC) is a 7,200-kilometre-long transport artery from St Petersburg to ports in Iran and India. North-South ITC has a western and an eastern branch, both running across Iran. The western one foresees cargo transportation by road via Rasht, the eastern one – by railway. The end point in Iran is the port of Bandar Abbas from which cargo can be delivered to India by sea. The western branch also crosses Azerbaijan, the eastern one – Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan. Besides, direct water transportation from Russia to Iran by the Caspian Sea is possible.

    The volume of Russian cargo transported by the North-South ITC is expected to double by 2030, from the current 17 million tonnes to 32 million tonnes.

    http://www.rosatomflot.ru/press-centr/novosti-predpriyatiya/2023/05/25/11527-rosatom-i-ao-baltiyskiy-zavod-podpisali-kontrakt-na-stroitelstvo-unikalnogo-sudna/

    Rosatom and JSC Baltiysky Zavod signed a contract for the construction of a unique vessel


    Rosatomflot (an enterprise of the Rosatom State Corporation) and JSC Baltiysky Zavod (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) signed a contract for the construction of a multifunctional nuclear service vessel (MSATO).

    By order of the Government of the Russian Federation, JSC "Baltiysky Zavod" was determined as the sole executor of the state contract for the construction of a multifunctional nuclear technology service vessel (MSATO). It is designed to perform a full range of work on recharging nuclear power plants of existing nuclear icebreakers, as well as the Akademik Lomonosov FNPP (and, in the future, modernized floating power units).

    The document was signed by acting. General Director of FSUE Atomflot Leonid Irlitsa and General Director of JSC Baltiysky Zavod Yuri Gordienkov.

    “The multifunctional nuclear support vessel will ensure the proper functioning of a modern icebreaking group. Financing of its construction is expected according to the scheme: 50% from the budget of the Russian Federation, 50% from the investment program of the State Corporation Rosatom. The construction is envisaged in accordance with the Northern Sea Route Development Plan for the period up to 2035, approved by the order of the Government of the Russian Federation, the planned completion date is 2029," Viktor Evtukhov, State Secretary - Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, emphasized in his address.

    “Now the work on recharging the reactors of nuclear icebreakers of previous generations is provided by the Imandra floating technical base,” said the acting director. Director General of FSUE Atomflot Leonid Irlitsa. This vessel was commissioned in 1980. We are moving forward. Three universal nuclear-powered icebreakers 22220 operate in the waters of the Northern Sea Route. To solve new problems, a multifunctional nuclear-technological service vessel is required. It will ensure the recharging of reactors on Project 22220 nuclear-powered ships.”

    “The transition to full life cycle contracts is a modern trend in many industries. Therefore, when building nuclear icebreakers today, we must simultaneously think about how to efficiently and economically carry out their maintenance in 10, 20, 30 years. Starting to build a multifunctional nuclear-technological service vessel, we want to ensure the long and safe operation of nuclear-powered icebreakers, floating nuclear power units and, in general, the entire Atomflot,” said Alexei Rakhmanov, General Director of USC.

    The integrated development of the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation is one of the strategic priorities of the state. Increasing the volume of traffic along the NSR is of paramount importance for solving the tasks set in the field of transport and delivery of goods. The development of this logistics corridor is ensured through the establishment of regular cargo transportation, the construction of new nuclear-powered icebreakers and the modernization of the relevant infrastructure. Enterprises of the State Corporation Rosatom take an active part in this work.

    For reference:

    Project 22770 was developed by JSC Central Design Bureau Iceberg. MSATO is designed to carry out the following main technological operations: unloading of spent nuclear fuel from the reactor units of the ships being serviced; loading of fresh nuclear fuel; acceptance, storage and shipment of liquid radioactive waste generated during the operation of ship reactor installations, as well as in the process of reloading nuclear fuel; soaking of spent fuel assemblies in order to reduce residual heat release. It can also load aged spent fuel assemblies into shipping containers for transfer to reprocessing; decontamination of removable equipment of ship reactor plants and refueling equipment.

    Design characteristics of the ISATO vessel: length - 158.8 meters, width - 26 meters; draft - 7.5 meters; GEM power - 9.28 MW (on shafts); displacement - 22,661 tons; speed - 12 knots; ice class - Arc5.

    The Krasnoe Sormovo plant (Nizhny Novgorod Region) and JSC State Transport Leasing Company (STLC) signed a contract for the construction of a series of 34 bulk carriers of the RSD59 project.

    It is planned that the bulk carriers will be delivered to the customer in three batches: 10 vessels — until the end of 2024, 12 vessels — until the end of September 2025 and another 12 vessels — until the end of January 2027.

    Description of dry cargo ships of the RSD59 project:
    The propulsion system consists of two diesel engines with a capacity of 1200 kW (1630 hp) each, which drive two propellers. The maximum speed is about 10 knots. There is a bow thruster with a power of 230 kW (313 hp).

    Two diesel generators of 332 kW (450 hp) each and an emergency generator with a capacity of 90 kW (122 hp) are designed to generate electricity.

    The ships have two box-shaped holds. The length of the front is 27.03 m, the rear is 77.35 m. Both holds are 12.25 m wide and 9.0 m high. The holds are closed with 15 pontoon lids. The volume of holds is 11,400 m3. The double bottom can withstand a load of 12 t/m2. The vessels are equipped with five bulkheads.

    The maximum capacity of the vessel is 248 TEU containers. 192 containers are placed in the holds (four 20—foot containers in length in hold 1 and twelve in hold 2, in four rows, three containers in height), 56 containers can be placed in one layer on the hatch covers (3x4 containers on hatch 1 and 11x4 on hatch 2).

    Due to the adaptation of the design and the increase in draft during the construction phase, the carrying capacity of the vessels was increased by 465 tons (from 7679 to 8144 tons).

    The flat deckhouse is located in the aft part of the vessel. The mast is folding for passing under bridges. There is a free-falling lifeboat behind the wheelhouse. The team size is 10-11 people. In total, up to 14 people can be on board. Autonomy up to 20 days.

    The hull of the ships is reinforced, ice class "Ice2".

    Minister of Agriculture Dmitry Patrushev visited the Krylov State Scientific Center in St. Petersburg.
    The company is developing projects of large-tonnage bulk carriers for the transportation of agricultural products over long distances.

    By the end of November 2023, the center will design the first Russian large-tonnage bulk carriers for grain transportation: 40 thousand tons deadweight and 60 thousand tons deadweight. The use of vessels of this type will make it possible not to depend on foreign carriers and accelerate the export of food.

    At the same time, the design of bulk carriers will provide for the use of only domestic components in order to eliminate the risks associated with the supply of imported parts and equipment.

    The deadline for the transfer of the first bulk carrier is the end of 2025 – the beginning of 2026. Further, it is planned to launch at least 2-3 vessels of these types annually. In total, it is necessary to build at least 60 bulk carriers in order to completely cover the needs of the domestic market, the telegram channel of the Russian government reports.

    Apparently, you are talking about the Kotlin shipyard, which should be built by Rosatom together with USC and where nuclear icebreaking vessels, floating nuclear power plants and nuclear lighters will be built. This project is designed for the future until 2035, design work is currently underway.
    We expect more news by the end of June, when the international Naval salon-2023 begins.

    Russia is investing in shipbuilding on a grand scale, by Olga Samofalova for VZGLYAD. 06.18.2023.

    Russia is implementing an ambitious project on the sea and rivers.

    The next five years will be landmark for civil shipbuilding. The state is ready to invest colossal funds for a multiple increase in the number of sea and river vessels built. Over the past ten years, 100 ships have been produced, and in the next five years it is planned to build about 260 ships. This will not only help the entire shipbuilding industry in the country to rise, but will also expand Russia's opportunities for trade with friendly countries.

    “In the next five years, we will significantly upgrade the merchant fleet. The Ministry of Industry and Trade has already made changes to the large-scale shipbuilding program. To implement it, we will attract funds from the National Wealth Fund,” said President Vladimir Putin, speaking at the SPIEF plenary session. “I would like to note that only within the framework of this program in 2023-2028, it is planned to build at least 260 ships at Russian shipyards,” the head of state stressed.

    To do this, at the beginning of the year, an investment order was created from the state for the construction of these 260 ships. The total investment will amount to 231 billion rubles, of which 136 billion rubles will come from the National Welfare Fund. The initiator and executor of the project is the State Transport Leasing Company (STLC).

    This is an extremely ambitious task. For comparison: since 2013, STLC has ordered the construction of 157 domestic ships, and only one hundred of them have already been transferred to shipping companies (mostly commercial ships).

    That is, in ten years only 100 ships were built, while over the next five years the plan is to assemble 260 ships, that is, 2.6 times more.

    It is assumed that thanks to this investment project, the industry will undergo a profound transformation - it is necessary to carry out import substitution, acquire the necessary competencies in terms of components and component base, increase production efficiency and introduce modern management methods, while increasing the volume of production.

    The importance of bringing civil shipbuilding in Russia to a qualitatively new level is indicated by the fact that the state is ready to allocate funds from the National Welfare Fund for these projects.

    The renewal of the country's fleet is necessary, among other things, in the context of the new geopolitical situation and the reorientation of trade relations from Europe to Asia.

    “The construction of ships is also important because the reorientation to trade with the countries of the East and the South was announced earlier, and water transport plays a big role here. For example, one of the main routes of the international North-South transport corridor passes through several water bodies, and more ships will be needed here in the coming years,” says Dmitry Baranov, leading expert of Finam Management. As part of the implementation of the North-South transport corridor, which connects Russia with Iran and further with India, the volume of export traffic is planned to double by 2025, and triple by 2030. According to EDB analysts, the additional cargo flow along the corridor in three years will amount to 5-7 million tons of export and 2-7 million tons of import cargo. By 2030, it will grow to 14.6 million tons in the base scenario, and up to 24.7 million tons in the optimistic one. Basically, we are talking about the supply of grain and containerized cargo. Mikhail Mishustin previously called approximately the same figures - an increase in freight traffic by 2030 by 135% to 32.5 million tons (by all modes of transport).

    Previously, the potential of this corridor was not fully used, since there were routes through the ports of the Baltic and Azov-Black Sea basins, but in the new geopolitical situation, Russia needs to expand the geography of transportation by any new routes.

    “Western sanctions hit not only air traffic with “unfriendly” countries and road transport, but also affected maritime transport. At the same time, new transport corridors are being formed, for example, Europe-Turkey-Azerbaijan-Dagestan. It carries part of the cargo that was previously delivered to Russia through the Baltic States and Poland-Belarus. The importance of the eastern direction is also growing - in the near future, the flow of goods from China directly and through Kazakhstan will also grow significantly,” says a leading specialist of the Center for Information Communications of the PRUE. Plekhanova Arina Redko.

    For understanding: out of 260 ships that are going to be built in the next five-year period, 119 cargo ships, 73 passenger ships, 10 fishing ships, 27 dredging ships (needed for navigable rivers), 1 floating dock, 5 large-tonnage and 5 tugboats, 20 barges.

    “Cargo ships can be both for liquid cargo, and for bulk, piece, containers and others. Passenger ships are needed primarily for the development of domestic tourism, and various equipment is needed for the arrangement of waterways,” says Baranov.

    At the same time, commercial, tourist or fishing companies are offered attractive financial conditions for leasing vessels. The key conditions are a “zero” down payment, a preferential rate from 2.93% to 7.6% depending on the type of vessel, the lease term is up to 25 years.

    “In general, this is a serious challenge, but the task is real and meaningful. Competition in some positions is rather weak, but industry associations and large enterprises from other industries see how actively shipbuilding is developing, how the number of ships under construction is growing, and the demand for fleet and related equipment is increasing. Of course, to saturate the market as quickly as possible with analogues of equipment that was stopped being supplied due to sanctions is a top priority. And the new subsidies should help to complete the construction of ships that are under construction and have certain difficulties due to non-delivery of equipment and the lack of analogues of Russian origin,” Redko believes.

    State spending on the development of civil shipbuilding is an important supporting mechanism for the growth of the country's industry and economy.

    “Firstly, orders for the creation of marine and river equipment will support manufacturers and ensure the modernization and sustainability of the entire industry. Secondly, orders for the construction of ships will provide employment for employees and allow enterprises to maintain their competencies in shipbuilding. Thirdly, the creation of courts in the country will increase the proceeds from the export of complex products, improve the safety of navigation. Fourthly, ships will need a significant amount of various equipment, parts and assemblies, and shipyards will order all this mainly within the country,” says Bananov. Moreover, not only shipbuilders themselves, but also many related enterprises will benefit from the project. It is important that there is competition between different shipyards, then they will be able to build faster and cheaper, plus it is important to control costs at each stage so that funds are not wasted.

    Where are the engines for these 260 ships going to come from? Not MAN and Wärtsila that is for sure. And what about the rest of the equipment?

    From Russia. The demand will create the product in this case. The important thing is to have the demand.

    Yeap, it will force local companies to ramp up production of marine engines they got. Hopefully fixing the issue of lack of mass production of their current marine engine production. I think this is how the Russian government planned this with engines for jets and electronics alike as well for all other enterprises. It makes sense.

    It isn't like Russia doesn't make any of the electronics, engines or anything, you know that Lancelot.

    In reality, we are talking about an increase of 5.2 times, since these 260 ships are planned to be built in half as long time as the previous 100.
