Okskaya Shipyard has signed contracts for 15 more ships of Project RSD59. Thus, the number of ordered RSD59 ships is 60 (including 13 built ships, 27 under construction and 20 units in option).

    The vessel’s class notation is КМ  Ice2(hull; power) R2 АUT1-ICS BWM(T) CONT (deck, cargo holds Nos.1,2) DG (bulk, pack) of the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping which meets all the requirements of international conventions in force at the time of the vessel's laying. 
     
    By displacement the vessels of RSD59 project are by far the largest of dry cargo vessels satisfying the dimensions of the Volga-Don shipping channel.

    Deadweight in the sea with draft of 4.706 m – 8,144 t; Deadweight in river with draft of 3.60 m – 5,320 t.

    The capacity of cargo holds is 11,400 cubic meters. The operating speed is 10.5 knots.
     
    Endurance in sea - 20 days.
     
    Crew - 11, berths - 14. There is a sanitary cabin and a pilot cabin.
     
    Expected service life of the hull - 24 years. 

    Pola Makaria, lead ship of RSD59 series is on the list of Significant Ships of 2018 by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA).
