SS MANHATTAN ARCTIC MARINE PROJECT DATA: THE IMPACT ON TECHNOLOGY
During the period 1968-71, EXXON, ARCO, and BP participated in a project to determine the feasibility of transporting Alaskan North Slope crude oil via icebreaking tankers. This paper describes and discusses the technical and operational data resulting from that project and assesses its impact on future Arctic marine technology. Design criteria for a new icebreaking tanker were developed based on analytical studies, model tests, and results from the SS Manhattan icebreaking tests. A basic ship and four hull variations were studied.
