First in a series of 11 tankers in the 227,500 dwt range under contract at Gotaverkens Arendal shipyard, the Veni has cargo tanks with a total capacity of 9,933,000 cu ft, and the ballast water tanks have a total capacity of 962,000 cu ft. Tank subdivision in the cargo space has been carried out with a view to segregation, i.e., the possibility of carrying at the same time various grades of cargo. It has resulted in an arrangement enabling part cargoes to be loaded or discharged, while maintaining normal trim and bow stress. The fully loaded ship can, for example, carry 50 percent of one grade of oil and 50 percent of another, or 25 percent of one grade and 75 percent of another. One grade of oil can be discharged at a port enroute, and the vessel can sail on without having to redistribute the remaining cargo. Instrumentation, automatic operation and remote control are built in to such an extent that it is possible to run with an unmanned engine room, in accordance with current requirements of Det norske Veritas for class EO. Principal particulars are given with details of general arrangement, deck machinery and main propulsion machinery.
