New Dry-Cargo Ships Will Be Constructed

Volgo-Baltic Company and the Korean Corporation Hyundai signed the contract for the construction of four maritime drycargo ships on February 05, 2009 in Moscow. Last spring the companies entered into the contract on the construction of six ships of this type. Therefore, the Korean company will construct ten multi-purpose dry-cargo ships of 5280 t deadweight for Russia.

The new project of Maritime Engineering Bureau is initially the maritime ship of unrestricted navigation area with the corresponding margin of strength. The project is truly innovative as this is the first time when deadweight of over 5000 t has been achieved for the modern dry-cargo one-hold ship with the estimated length of up to 85 m. The first ship under the Korean contract will be delivered to the Volgo-Baltic Сompany in March 2010.
