RMDC unveils new design proposals for the Polish Navy

RMDC_new_designsRemontowa Marine Design & Consulting (RMDC), the Remontowa Holding’s in-house design company presented new designs of combat and navy support vessels. Taking into consideration challenges and needs of the Polish Navy and having in mind successful Minehunter Project “Kormoran II” – RMDC has developed a few other designs. During the 14th Balt Military Fair held in Gdansk in June 2016 the company has revealed the designs of a degaussing ship, a logistic support ship, a replenishment ship, a submarine rescue ship and a patrol vessel.

degaussingDegaussing ship

The primary task of the ship is to decrease or eliminate remnant magnetic field of other ships with a displacement of up to 6000 ton, and measurements of physical fields (magnetic field, hydro-acoustic, electrical and thermal). Secondary tasks include search and rescue operations, towing operations and support for navy operations.

Principal particulars: length 59.0 m, breadth 11.3 m, design draft 2.7 m, speed (max) 16 kn, speed (service) 14 kn, displacement 930 t.

The ship will be equipped with navigation systems compatible with navigation system Secure AIS, and also with national and NATO command and communication systems. She is designed to operate in the Baltic Sea and the North Sea up to the sea state 8 Beaufort. The ship will have ice class L3.

Logistic support shipLogistic support ship

LSS’ primary task will be securing provision of the fuel and water for other surface operating ships and naval forces working together on the missions. Principal particulars: length 130.0 m, breadth 24.0 m, design draft 6.2 m, speed (max) 21 kn, speed (service) 15 kn, displacement 12,000 t, tanks capacity: fuel 5,000 m³, fresh water 1000 m³.

The ship will be able to download and store inventory in the amount which will guarantee the ability to stay at sea for 30 days without calling into port. She is designed to operate in all sea areas with the exception of the Arctic zone of constant freezing, and ensuring the ability to use weapons – up to sea state 5. The ship will have ice class L2.

The ship should have the ability to manoeuvre at low speeds and mooring operations, with a wind force up to 30 knots and currents up to 3 knots, without the help of tugboats and other vessels.

Replenishment shipReplenishment ship

The main task of the ship is Replenishment at Sea (RAS) of Fuel and Water, and also other consumables to other surface operating Navy Vessels. Additional tasks will also include providing technical assistance for the repair and maintenance of military equipment.

Principal particulars: length 106.0 m, breadth 18.0 m, design draft 5.0 m, speed (max) 20 kn, speed (service) 15 kn, displacement 5700 t, capacity: fuel 1800 m³, fresh water 200 m³.

The ship will be able to download and store inventory in the amount which will guarantee the ability to stay at sea for 30 days without calling into port. She is designed to operate in all sea areas with the exception of the Arctic zone of constant freezing, and ensuring the ability to use weapons – up to sea state 5. The ship will have ice class L2.

The ship will have the ability to manoeuvre at low speeds and mooring operations, with a wind force up to 30 knots and currents up to 3 knots, without the help of tugboats and other vessels.

Submarine rescue shipSubmarine rescue ship

The ship will be designed to operate during SAR missions, as well as securing rescue operations for submarines. This will include: participation in the operations of search and rescue, searching, location and extraction of sunken military equipment with a total weight up to 80 tones, providing assistance in the fight against fire, pull out of the shallows and towing. Principal particulars: length 105.3 m, breadth 18,0 m, design draft 5,0 m, speed (max) 18 kn, speed (service) 14 kn, displacement 6,000 t.

The ship is designated to operate in all sea areas with the exception of the Arctic zone of constant freezing, ensuring the ability to maintain a stable position during SAR operations and underwater works – up to sea state 6 and wave heights of 5 m. The ship will have ice class L1.

The ship should have the ability to manoeuvre at low speeds and mooring operations, with a wind force up to 30 knots and currents up to 3 knots, without the help of tugboats and other vessels.

Patrol vesselPatrol vessel

The patrol vessel will be designed to conduct combat and patrol operations in the Baltic Sea, the North Sea and in the case of allied actions in the specified waters operational responsibility of NATO Maritime Joint Forces. Principal particulars: length 63.8 m, breadth 11.3 m, design draft 3.0 m, speed (max) 23 kn, speed (service) 12 kn, displacement 1000 t.

The vessel will be equipped with navigation systems compatible with navigation system SECURE AIS and also with national and NATO command and communication systems.
