According to Fjodor Berman, the Chairman of the Board of BLRT Grupp, building vessels from scratch, starting from the elaboration of a vessel’s concept and ending with the launching, has been the ultimate goal of the concern all these years.

The multi-purpose cargo ship “Anetta” is the second turnkey delivery of a new build vessel for Western Baltija Shipbuilding.

Apart from that, she is also fit for transportation of dangerous goods in packages class 2 to class 9, as well as dangerous goods in bulk classes 4, 5, and 9 (IMO IMDG code).

The ship is equipped with crew cabins which can accommodate up to 10 persons.

The vessel’s length is 89.9 m, width 14.5 m, and she is capable of sailing at a maximum speed of 11.5 knots. Deadweight of the vessel is 4600 tons, and her maximum draft is 5.77 meters.

The cargo ship has two cargo holds with 10 pontoon hatches. Each of the cargo holds with capacity of 2875 m3 is equipped with a movable bulkhead.
Permissible load on cargo deck is 15 tons per m2. MCR of the main engine is 1600 kW.

Auxiliary plant consists of two 248 kW auxiliary diesel generators, 350 kW shaft generator and 70 kW emergency diesel generator. Apart from that, the vessel is equipped with bow thruster with nominal input power of 300 kW.

The concept and design of multi-purpose vessel was elaborated by Western Baltic Engineering, a part of BLRT Grupp.

During the process of construction, the vessel was surveyed by the classification society Lloyd‘s Register.
