YANMAR powers dry cargo vessels Russia
With the delivery of the Anatoly Nikolayev (with a deadweight of 6,220 tons) at the end of 2019, Russian Okskaya Shipyard completes a series of 8 new dry cargo carriers under the project name RSD32M for State Transport Leasing Company PJSC.
The renowned designer Marine Engineering Bureau, the shipbuilder Okskaya and the shipowner have chosen YANMAR 6EY22AW medium-speed propulsion engines to drive two Schottel azimuth propellers to guarantee safe and efficient operation of all vessels.
Great first impression followed by real experience
The ships were built by Okskaya Shipyard in Russia, which already had close ties with our distributor Varmaa. Varmaa in turn works closely and actively with their on-site sales agent Yachmarket as the YANMAR sales and service team in Russia. Thanks to their teamwork and commitment, we were able to offer a high-quality solution with our reliable and powerful, yet economical engines.
The experiences so far are very positive. The shipowner USC is particularly satisfied with the actual low fuel consumption. Recently, Okskaya Shipyard has signed a new order for another 10 new dry cargo vessels and have again chosen YANMAR 6EY22AW medium-speed propulsion engines to power these vessels.
Long Life Cycle Value
The 6EY22AW engines, each with a capacity of 1,180 kW, are used as main propulsion engines on the vessels. They are known for their safe operation, long life cycle value in heavy-duty operation, ease of maintenance and low fuel costs. The engines also take the latest emission and environment regulations into account by reducing harmful emissions (NOx / CO2 / SOx) and hazardous materials. YANMAR's EY medium speed propulsion diesel engines series vary between 374 and 4,500 kW and are used for commercial vessels, ocean going tugs, workboats and large fishing vessels, etc.
