THE MILLION TON CARRIER
At the Super Ocean Carrier Conference (SOCCO) 32 papers were presented dealing with the problems of ships over 200,000 dwt or LNG carriers of more than 100,000 cubic meters capacity. The potential for building, operating and maintaining a one million deadweight ton tanker was discussed. The various papers presented the impact of super ocean carriers on all the allied industries including finance, underwriting, ship design and construction, ship repair, harbor facilities and regulatory agencies. By the end of the next decade 400 to 600 of these behemoths may be operating with widespread ramifications that are just beginning to be appreciated.
