    Krasnoye Sormovo shipyard laid down the fifth dry cargo carrier of Project RSD59 for Paula Rise

    On 25 December 2017, Nizhny Novgorod, Russia based Krasnoye Sormovo shipyard (part of United Shipbuilding Corporation) laid down the fifth 7,500 DWT multi-purpose dry cargo carrier of Project RSD59 for shipping company for Paula Rise, says press center of Marine Engineering Bureau, the ship designer.

    Under the contract with State Leasing Transport Company as the customer and shipping company Paula Rise as leaseholder, Krasnoye Sormovo is to build five ships of Project RSD59 with Nevsky Shipyard to deliver five more ships of this project. RSD59 ships of Volgo-Don Max class have the maximum dimensions to sail along the Volga-Don canal.
