Between now and 1985, vessels to be built for coal firing could amount to some 30 million dwt for dry bulkers. An economic model of a 150000 dwt bulk carrier with a 17900 bhp stoker boiler/steam turbine burning 172 t/day of coal is analyzed. The bunkering system, and the need for developing a specially constructed bunkering facility are discussed. The prime candidate trades for coal bunkering are dealt with in some detail. Order from NSFI as No. 21194.
