Zvezda has begun construction of a giant tanker
In the block of hull production at the Zvezda shipyard in Primorye, work began on the construction of the fifth Aframax large-capacity tanker. The customer was Rosnefteflot JSC.
According to the press service of the regional government, the shops started cutting metal for the future tanker. Vessels of this class in Russia are produced for the first time. They are considered cost-effective and environmentally friendly, as they can run on natural gas.
Zvezda received orders for 12 Aframaxes. The first of them will be launched this spring. The vessel is intended for the transportation of crude oil and petroleum products in an unlimited navigation area. The tanker is 250 meters long and 44 meters wide. A deck for helicopters is provided on its deck.
Autumn 2018 at the shipyard was launched serial production of Aframax tankers. To implement the project, it was decided to build production facilities and production infrastructure, as well as housing for plant workers.
