NIZHNEYANSK - FIRST OF FIVE ARCTIC MULTI-PURPOSE VESSELS FROM VALMET

The first of five 20,000-dwt multi-purpose cargo vessels being built by the Helsinki yard of Valmet Oy was handed over to V/O Sudoimport in January 1983. Known as the SA-15 and specially designed for service in the Soviet Arctic, a further nine ships of this class are being built at the Turku yard of Wartsila Oy. A considerable amount of data concerned with the main design features of the SA-15 class has already been published and summarised in Abs.Nos. 60411 <Sept.83> 59955 <July 83> & 59266 <April 83>. This present article describes how these features have been applied in the case of the Nizhneyansk.
