ASHGABAT, October 27 (Itar-Tass) - The oil tanker Aladzha (‘talisman’ in translation from the Turkmen language), which is built at the Russian shipyard Krasnoye Sormovo, arrived at the registration port of Turkmenbashi on the Caspian Sea. This is the fifth ship, which was built at the shipyard in the Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod for Turkmenistan.
The Aladzha as her predecessors with a loading capacity of 7,100 tonnes is designed for the delivery of crude oil and petroleum products. A water displacement of more than 140-metre-long ship, which is highly manoeuvrable and has a high margin of safety and a high security level, makes about 10,000 tonnes. The oil tanker is equipped with powerful power units and modern onboard systems, including computerized control system and electronic navigation equipment, which guarantees the correct course in any weather. The ship is provided with 12 oil tanks isolated from each other that allows delivering different types of fuel during one trip.
Four oil tankers of similar modification Sumbar, Dzheikhun, Etrek (all three of them are named after the rivers in Turkmenistan) and Khazar (the Turkmen name of the Caspian Sea) were already built at the shipyard Krasnoye Sormovo for Turkmenistan from 2009 through 2012.
The Nizhny Novgorod shipbuilders intend to heave off the sixth ship for Turkmenistan named Kenar (‘coast’ in translation from the Turkmen language) in the spring of 2014. According to the shipbuilding development state-run programme, Turkmenistan plans to order one tanker a year until 2016.
Turkmenistan produced 11 million tonnes of oil in 2012. The country exports the oil mainly through the Russian port of Makhachkala.
