Russia's Krasnoye Sormovo Shipyard, a subsidiary of the United Shipbuilding Corporation, and Azerbaijan's Caspian Marine Services Ltd. signed a contract for building and delivery of two RST27 tankers, said Krasnoye Sormovo Shipyard on its website Apr. 11.

The RST27 vessels of the Volga-Don Max class meet the dimensions of the Volga-Don Ship Canal and Volga-Baltic Waterway. The tankers are designed for mixed sea/river transportation of crude oil and oil products (two types of cargo), including gasoline, with no flash point.

The tankers will be delivered to Azerbaijan in 2016-2017, according to the contract.

Krasnoye Sormovo Shipyard OJSC is one of Russia's oldest shipyards.

Caspian Marine Services Ltd. operates a fleet of support ships involved in oil and gas projects in the Caspian Sea.
