CONCEPTUAL DESIGN OF A NUCLEAR-POWERED ICEBREAKING TANKER TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM

This paper is based on a study performed for the U.S. Maritime Administration, Office of Advanced Ship Development by Newport News Shipbuilding. Arctec Incorporated, under subcontract to Newport News, provided technical assistance in the areas of ice technology and icebreaker performance analysis. The principal objective of the study was to evaluate trade routes and develop conceptual designs for the icebreaking tanker and related facilities which comprise the overall "transportation system" for the movement of crude petroleum for Alaska's North Slope to the East Coast of the United States. A major oil company's marine division assisted in the study by providing ship operator/owner information and guidance in the assessment of suggested trade routes and alternative sites.
