Navigation 2018

All vessels of the project RST-54 began their voyages according to plan after the inter-naval sludge removal and already fully carry out transportation along the inland waterways of the Russian Federation.

The vessels of the project RST-27 and RST-27M started navigation after work on the Black, Mediterranean and Baltic seas.

Navigation in 2018 promises to be successful, as the company’s vessels have introduced new tankers of the project RST-27 and RST-27M, the most popular both on domestic and foreign maritime markets. The last of the five chemical tankers ordered by the company was transferred to the customer by the Krasnoye Sormovo shipyard in May 2018. In total, today the fleet of BF Tanker consists of 15 vessels, six of which are of the RST-54 project, four vessels of the RST-27 project and five vessels of the upgraded RST-27M project, and the company also works with other chartered vessels.

According to the Chairman of the Board of Directors, Sergey Chaplygin, at this stage the company has implemented a shipbuilding program and works with all the largest exporters of edible oils, crude oil and oil trading companies. To date, the company’s fleet is one of the youngest on the market, able to transport a wide range of cargoes, including oil, petroleum products, petrochemicals and edible oils, and the RST-54 project vessels can load general cargo and bulk cargo as a return load. In addition, the company is the sole owner of modernized tankers of the RST-27M project with enhanced marine class and increased cargo capacity. Vessels of this type are capable of operating both on inland waterways of the Russian Federation and international destinations, in particular the Baltic, the North Sea, the Mediterranean, the Black Sea, the Caspian Sea, the Persian Gulf and the Atlantic coast of Europe.

KRASNOYE SORMOVO SHIPYARD CEREMONIOUSLY LAUNCHED A CHEMICAL CARRIER OF A NEW DESIGN RST-27M “BALT FLOT 18”, ON 23 OCTOBER, 2017.

The ceremony of launching a chemical carrier of Project RST27M for the company “BF Tanker” was held at the Krasnoye Sormovo shipyard today, 23 October 2017.

Gleb Nikitin, interim governor of the Nizhny Novgorod region, Alexei Rakhmanov, president of the USC, and other distinguished guests, managers and employees of all companies that were involved in designing and constructing the tanker, representatives of the customer and residents of the city took part in the ceremony of launching the ship into the water.

The godmother of the vessel, who traditionally broke a bottle of champagne on the side of the new ship was Alexandra Azova, a member of the Board of the Charity Fund and the Board of Trustees, a patron of the project to build the church of St. Sergius of Radonezh in Paldiski (Estonia) in memory of the sailors who died in the waters of the Baltic Sea.

This is the third vessel of a series of five chemical carriers of Project RST27M, to be built by Krasnoe Sormovo during 2017-2018 for “BF Tanker.”

The chemical carriers of Project RST27M have enhanced marine functionality. The vessels of this Project have an increased capacity of 800 tons (as compared with Project RST27) and are able to transport crude oil, oil products, edible oils and petrochemical products with simultaneous delivery of three types of cargo.

In designing the tanker the special requirements of Russian and International oil companies, additional environmental restrictions of the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping “ECO PROJECT” (ECO-S) have been taken into account.

According to the Chairman of the Board of Directors Sergey Chaplygin, the company successfully implements the task of expanding the range of cargoes and the geography of transportation thanks to the high-quality construction of the vessels.

At the same time, all ship owners are concerned about the lack of an extension of the state program of compensation for part of the interest rate paid on shipbuilding loans. This could jeopardize the further construction of a new fleet at Russian shipyards due to low profitability and a longer payback period.

The lack of state support may adversely affect the development of both shipbuilding enterprises and shipping companies.

According to the Chairman of the Board of Directors Sergei Chaplygin, the Company is currently one of the largest ship owners with the newest and most up to date fleet. A leasing arrangement allowed the Company to implement a shipbuilding program for the construction of 15 modern ships.

A series of state supported measures for shipbuilding and river and sea navigation stimulated market participants to increase the number of new ships registered under the Russian flag, creating additional employment, and adding to regional and federal budgets.

It should be noted that the development of the shipbuilding sector in Russia is a major government priority and this has without doubt assisted the growth of the industry and created new investment opportunities.

We are focused on further developing our fleet and continuing our construction plans, using the increased efficiencies inherent in the available leasing programs.
