CONSTRUCTION AND EQUIPMENT OF CHEMICAL TANKERS
The Author, of the Ankerlokken Shipyard, Floro, Norway, gives some brief general information on chemical-tanker design and describes the cargo arrangements in a 30,000-dwt chemical tanker delivered by his yard in Feb. 1977. This ship, the second of a series of two (they are not named in the article), has a length of 170-7 m overall and 162.6 m b.p., and features extra breadth (moulded breadth is 29.5 m) and a shallow draught (10 m). The ship is designed for sulphuric and phosphoric acids and other cargoes, and has six 3,000-cu m stainless steel centre tanks. The wing tanks are of ordinary steel, epoxy-coated and all tanks have heating coils. The lower part of each centre tank, up to a height of 2.3 m, is of a different grade of stainless steel from the rest of the tank. The transverse bulkheads are horizontally corrugated; all stiffeners are on deck. There are three pump-rooms. The article gives some further information on these cargo arrangements, and mentions that care in working with stainless steel is just as important as the steel quality. Order from: BSRA as No. 47,091.
