Two river-sea oil tankers of project RST 22M are to be built to the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping (RS) class. A relevant agreement is signed by RS with Armada Shipyard that will construct the ships for the Palmali Group of Companies. At present, RS experts are engaged in the plan approval of the ships.

According to the agreement, RS will render classification of the newbuildings and survey under construction for compliance with applicable statutory requirements. RS experts will perform survey of hull construction and the installation of machinery, electrical and automation equipment, and will check the ship compliance with approved technical documentation, all the applicable international and national requirements, as well as participate in the mooring tests and trials.

Project RST 22M has been developed by the Marine Engineering Bureau. The project RS class notation is КМ Ice1 R2 AUT1-ICS VCS ECO-S BWM OMBO Oil tanker (ESP). The ships are designed to carry crude oil, oil fuel, diesel oil, other oil products and vegetable oils, and are capable to carry three types of cargo simultaneously.

The project stipulates for the new tankers to comply with the Volga-Don Ship Canal and the Volga-Baltic Waterway size and to operate both in river-sea traffic and the traffic in the Caspian, Black, Mediterranean, Baltic and North Seas including circum-Europe voyages and voyages to the Irish Sea in winter.

The ship design considers the RS additional environmental requirements (ECO-S). The pilot tanker is to be delivered in mid-2015.
