Schottel propulsion units for Russian dry cargo vessels
German propulsion and steering manufacturer, Schottel, has recently secured a contract to supply propulsion units to 11 newbuild dry cargo vessels constructed by Krasnoye Sormovo shipyard in Russia.
Each of the carriers will be equipped with two 1,200 kW SRP 340 FP rudderpropellers and one 230 kW STT 170 FP transverse thruster.
The multipurpose dry cargo vessels' main propulsion 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 metre-long and 16.9 metre-wide vessels offer a capacity of 11,200 m³ as well as 7,445 dwt at sea (draught 4.50 m) and 5,112 dwt in river (draught 3.60 m). Moreover, the new vessels are characterized by a particularly high block coefficient, ensuring the best combination of speed, load capacity and required propulsive power. The vessels were designed by domestic Russian ship designer, Marine Engineering Bureau.
Each of the self-propelled dry cargo vessels has two cargo holds, intended for the carriage of general containerized 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.
