At the Zvezda shipbuilding complex in Primorye, the first Russian Aframax tanker, Vladimir Monomakh, was launched. They did this with the help of the Vympel transport and transfer dock, one of the largest in Russia. Preparation for the descent took almost a day.

The length of the vessel is 250 meters, width - 44 meters, deadweight 114 thousand tons. The tanker is designed to transport oil in an unlimited navigation area. According to the press service of the shipbuilding complex, it was designed in compliance with high environmental safety standards, so the main and auxiliary power plants can run on traditional and environmentally friendly fuel - liquefied natural gas.

The Aframax tankers will be the first vessels of this type built in Russia. The lead ship was laid down on September 11, 2018 during the visit of President Vladimir Putin. It is planned to transfer the tanker to the customer in September-October. Now they are building at the shipyard three more tankers like "Aframax". There are a total of 12 tankers in the series.
