YANMAR power for new dry cargo vessels  in Russia

In 2019, YANMAR strengthened its position on the Russian market with the delivery of 16 YANMAR 6EY22AW medium-speed propulsion engines for a series of 8 new dry cargo carriers; two engines delivering efficient power for each ship. With the delivery of the Anatoly Nikolayev (with a deadweight of 6,220 tons), Russian Okskaya Shipyard completed the series of 8 vessels, commissioned by State Transport Leasing Company PJSC.

Vessel: HABNC-1

Satisfied customer and great follow-up

The experiences so far are very positive. The ship operator NAVIS-1, LLC is particularly satisfied with the actual low fuel consumption, which reduces running costs. Recently, Okskaya Shipyard, the builder, has signed a follow-up order for another 10 new dry cargo vessels and have again chosen YANMAR 6EY22AW medium-speed propulsion engines to power these vessels.

Safe and efficient operation

While thinking about powering the new dry cargo carriers, the renowned designer Marine Engineering Bureau, Okskaya and the shipowner have chosen YANMAR engines to drive two Schottel azimuth propellers to guarantee safe and efficient operation of all vessels. See all the technical details of this project, under the project name RSD32M.
