First Of Five 20,000-Dwt Cargo
Vessels Delivered By Valmet
To V/O Sudoimport
The first of five 20,000-dwt Arctic multi- purpose ships contracted by V/O Sudo- import of Moscow for the Soviet Far East
Shipping Company was delivered recently by Valmet Corporation, Helsinki Shipyard,
Finland, about three months ahead of the contracted delivery time.
The Nizhneyansk is powered by two Sulzer diesel engines.
The Njzhneyansk is a dry cargo vessel with five cargo holds 'and a 'tweendeck, large hatch openings, and 40-ton deck cranes. Ro/ ro cargo can also be loaded and unloaded to the 'tweendeck through the angled stern ramp (minimum width of driving lane 5.0 m) which is at a 55 degree angle to the ship's center line.
The vessel is intended for navigation in
Arctic waters, even at a temperature of — 50 degrees C. It is capable of breaking, independently, ice of about one-meter in thickness and, assisted by an icebreaker, can operate in more difficult ice conditions.
The output of the main propulsion ma- chinery is 15,400 kw (21,000 hp) from two
Sulzer 147 40/48 diesel engines. The en- gines are coupled by Voith hydrodynamic couplings and Valmet/Renk reduction gears to a KaMeWa cp propeller for a 17-knot service speed. Electricity is generated by four Wartsila/UASA 524TS diesel-driven alternators.
The Nizhneyansk is designed for the transport of general cargo in the Arctic regions; pallets, packaged goods, coal, ore, grain, heavy cargoes, explosives, sawn goods, and packaged timber. The total cargo hold capacity is 31,180 cubic meters. Wheeled machines, vehicles, and other ro/ro cargo can be carried on 'tweendeck. The total length of the ro/ro lane is about 800 meters.
The hatch covers are also equipped with container lashing equipment. The container capacity is 534 TEUs of which 50 can be refrigerated. Packaged timber also can be carried on the deck.
