The pioneering coal-fired ships of the new generation, due for delivery in 1982/83, will serve on long coastal routes and enjoy a reliable source of good quality coal as bunkers. Technically, the Bulkships/ANL newbuildings will not sail into unknown territory--there is no use of fluidised bed combustion or advanced steam turbine plant--but their overall specification provides a valuable reference for other operators investigating coal-fired ships. The evolution of that specification--to satisfy safety, anti-pollution, manning, maintenance and automation requirements--as well as the economic study justifying the choice of coal firing are detailed by ANL's Mr. G. C. Beggs in this paper.
