THE BACO-LINERS

Two versatile barge carriers with considerable deck container capacity are now in service between North Europe and west Africa. Built by Thyssen Nordseewerke from the Federal Republic of Germany for a domestic owner each vessel has a maximum deadweight of 21,000 tonnes on a 6.64 m draught and is powered by a B & W 8L55GF low-speed engine developing 10.720 bhp to give a speed of 15 knots at 90 per cent m.c.r. The Baco ships have a container carrying capacity of 648 TEUs per ship and are equipped with their own container handling equipment. The barges are loaded through the bow via a floodable dock hold, divided by a non-watertight longitudinal centerline bulkhead.
