DOUBLE HULL TANKER OF 90,000 DWT FROM GDYNIA YARD

Poland's Gdynia Shipyard has obtained general approval from the American Bureau of Shipping for the design of a 90,000 dwt oil tanker that will replace the Aframax-type tankers successfully built since 1980. The new design is described, and is based on a double hull concept aimed at pollution prevention and safe oil transport. Drawings are shown and particulars given that compare the double hull design with that of its predecessor, the single-skinned B563.
