APPLICATION OF NUCLEAR POWER TO MOORE MCCORMACK LINES SERVICES
The results of a study of the application of nuclear power to one of the Moore McCormack Lines services are presented. The service selected was the Trade Route 8 - Scantic combined service, which includes Antwerp, Rotterdam and several Baltic ports, currently served by a fleet of C3's and 18 knot replacement ships. The study concludes that nuclear power would have advantages on the Trade Route 8 - Scantic service if Moore McCormack can justify the use of high-speed ships in the service and if increased utilization of the ships in the service can be obtained. It is concluded that with the exception of Oslo which has a peculiar seasonal visitation condition, no particular difficulty is anticipated from the standpoint of safety.
