RS to Class New Lukoil’s Offshore Ships

Russian Maritime Register of Shipping (RS) is to undertake ship construction survey for the Lukoil Group.

RS has signed contracts for the whole range of classification and statutory services under the construction of an offshore salvage ship by Keppel Singmarine Pte Ltd in Singapore and two offshore support vessels by Keppel Nantong in China. The delivery of the ships is planned for 2015.

The new ships will join the Lukoil offshore fleet for the northern sector of the Caspian Sea. They are designed to supply and ensure the safe operation of the Filanovsky field offshore development facilities.

Project Н383-385 ships are built to RS class. In March this year, the ice model tests of the ships’ hulls were performed successively in the Aker Arctic test basin in Finland.

The arctic ice strengthening categories of the ships will enable their efficient operation during the winter navigation. The design provides for fire extinguishing systems on board fixed offshore platforms and the offloading terminal as well as oil spill response equipment to be installed on board ships.
