CHARACTERISTICS OF NEW COAL-FIRED BAUXITE CARRIERS

This paper discusses the reasoning behind the Australian National Line's decision to return to coal-fired propulsion for two ships intended for a specific Australian Coastal trade route. It also considers the design of the vessels, the first of which is due to enter service shortly, from the Naval Architect's point of view.
