At present, RS experts are engaged in the plan approval of the ships.

According to the agreement, RS will render classification of the newbuildings and survey under construction for compliance with applicable statutory requirements.

RS experts will perform survey of hull construction and the installation of machinery, electrical and automation equipment, and will check the ship compliance with approved technical documentation, all the applicable international and national requirements, as well as participate in the mooring tests and trials.

Project RST 22M has been developed by the Marine Engineering Bureau. The project RS class notation is КМ(*) Ice1 R2 AUT1-ICS VCS ECO-S BWM OMBO Oil tanker (ESP). The ships are designed to carry crude oil, oil fuel, diesel oil, other oil products and vegetable oils, and are capable to carry three types of cargo simultaneously.
