Kuzey Star Shipyard Launches Ro-Ro Ship Named General Chernyakhovsky

The second of the Ro-Ro ships ordered by Russia's FSUE Rosmorport for use on the Ust-Luga-Baltiysk line, named General Chernyakhovsky, was launched in a ceremony at Kuzey Star Shipyard. The most significant feature of the new construction project is that the ship is equipped with a dual fuel system, allowing it to operate on both gas and diesel, which is considered an environmentally friendly propulsion system that reduces emission values, making it one of the most sought-after solutions worldwide in terms of ecological solutions.

The first ship of the series, Marshal Rokossovsky, was launched in August 2020. Both ships will be the first Ro-Ro ships in Russia to operate on LNG. They will be capable of transporting not only automobiles, trucks, and trailers but also wagons. General Chernyakhovsky, with a length of 200 meters and a width of 27 meters, is scheduled for delivery by the end of 2021.
