MACHINERY TRENDS WITH PARTICULAR REFERENCE TO LARGE ENERGY CARRIERS

The paper begins by reviewing the projected growth in world tonnage up to 1985, identifying both the general trend and the ship types which are emerging. Changes in emphasis in machinery installation design are considered together with the machinery installations appropriate to large energy carriers. Future developments in machinery are discussed and related to the current and future share of the market for each type of prime mover. An economic analysis of alternate machinery installations appropriate to very large crude carriers is presented and the impact of operational costs, particularly ship availability, is demonstrated.
