SEOUL, January 16 (Itar-Tass) - A ceremony to award a name to a large-tonnage tanker, built under an order placed by the Sovcomflot group of companies, a long-standing partner of the South Korean side, is to be held on the South Korean island of Koje-do at the shipyard of the Daewoo Shipbuildng and Marine Engineering Company on Wednesday.
A modern hi-tech tanker is expected to be named in honour of Anatoly Kolodkin (1928-2011), an outstanding Russian lawyer and professor who devoted a larger portion of his life to international law of the sea and to sea transport problems.
The tanker has a deadweight of 118,100 tonnes; it is almost 250 metres long, 46 metres wide, and has a maximum draught of 14.6 metres. The Anatoly Kolodkin is to be used in the Baltic Sea for year-round transportation of petroleum products, predominantly those from the Russian ports of the Gulf of Finland. The tanker meets all Russian and innternational safety requirements of the Lloyd's Register and has no limitations as to navigation areas.
The newest technologies employed in the construction of the tanker, the technical solutions used in its design, and the equipment installed on board the ship render this project one of environmentally most acceptable to both the Baltic Sea and other environmentally sensitive regions of the world.
The name awarding ceremony is to be attended by officials of RF ministries and agencies, and by Members of the Board of Directors of the OAO Sovcomflot public joint-stock company, led by General Director Sergei Frank.
Kolodkin's son -- Roman Kolodkin, who is now the Ambassador of Russia to the Netherlands -- as well as Konstantin Vnukov, the Ambassador of the RF to the Republic of Korea, have been also invited to participate in the Koje-do Island ceremony.
