The Turkish Kuzey Star Shipyard has floated out Marshal Rokossovsky, a dual-fuel ro-ro ship built in cooperation with Nevsky Shipyard on behalf of Rosmorport.
The 11,057 dwt-big Arc4 ice class vessel, 199.9 m-long and 27.4 m-wide, is scheduled for delivery in spring 2021. Once operational, it'll replace Ambal and Baltiysk across the Ust-Luga-Baltiysk service.
Marshal Rokossovsky will be able to take up to 170 railcars, 58 trucks, and 40 trailers on-board. Thanks to 30 plugs, it'll also be possible to transport reefers.
The ship was designed by Marine Engineering Bureau (Project CNF19M). Keel laying for General Chernyakhovsky, a sister ship, took place in April 2019.
