Russian Maritime Register of Shipping (RS, the Register) will be a participant to the XII International Exhibition Transport of Russia to be held on 20 – 22 November 2018 at Gostiny Dvor Complex, Moscow, Russia.
The services aimed on implementation of innovative engineering solutions in transportation industry will be presented at the RS stand. One of the most telling examples of such implementation under the RS technical survey is expansion of the practice of using gas fuel on ships as an alternative to oil fuel, which is extremely relevant in the context of new MARPOL requirements regarding control of NOx and SOx emissions into the atmosphere. Thus, operation on both oil and gas fuel is one of the technical characteristics of Aframax tankers of project 114K DWT Crude Oil Tanker being constructed to the RS class at shipbuilding complex Zvezda (town of Bolshoy Kamen). Construction of such series of ships sets new standards for the environmental safety of commercial shipping.
Advanced technologies are constantly being implemented during construction of Arctic ships to the RS class including those intended for hydrocarbon crude transportation under extremely low temperatures, and during manufacture of materials, products, equipment and systems for such projects. For instance, dual-fuel engines and main electric podded Azipod azimuth thrusters intended for innovative Arctic gas carriers and shuttle tankers constructed under the Novy Port and Yamal LNG projects with the Register involved, are being manufactured under the RS technical survey.
Today, RS is effectively cooperating not only with marine industry companies, but also with companies of related industries, by carrying out recognition of industrial enterprises and laboratories, approval of manufacturing processes, products and services, certification of quality management systems as well as by contributing to the development of international normative base to promote innovations to the world market of transportation services, in particular, engaging tank-containers with FRP vessels in multimodal transportation.
Construction of the fixed offshore ice-resistant platform and living-quarter platform for the Rakushechnoye field development in the Northern Caspian is one of the most advanced projects related to offshore oil and gas production with the Register involved. Besides, offshore facilities for the field development include three subsea pipelines of various purposes, the design, manufacture of all components and laying of which will be carried out in accordance with the requirements of the RS rules.
