Meyer Werft Delivers Fifth Passenger Ship Built For Indonesia
Meyer Werft of Papenburg, West Germany, recently delivered to the Directorate General of Sea Communication of the Republic of Indonesia the Kelimutu, the fifth passenger vessel built by this yard for Indonesia during the past three years.
During the delivery ceremony held at the shipyard the Indonesian Ambassador in Bonn, Ashadi Tjahjadi, accepted delivery on behalf of his government in the presence of some 200 guests from Indonesia.
A sister ship, the Lawit, is scheduled to be delivered this month. The double launching of these two vessels earlier this year was the first of its kind in the history of Meyer Werft.
These twin-screw vessels of about 5,700 grt have a cruising range of 4,000 miles plus seven harbor days at a speed of 14 knots. They will be employed in the Indonesian interisland service.
The Kelimutu has an overall length of 327.4 feet, beam of 59 feet, depth to weather deck of 30.8 feet, and draft of about 13.8 feet. Propulsion is provided by twin 4-stroke, MaK diesel engines, each with an output of 2,176 bhp at 600 rpm, driving fixed-pitch propellers via reduction gears. Maneuverability is enhanced by a bow thruster with controllable-pitch propeller and a thrust of about 7.20 tons, driven by a 653-bhp engine.
Electrical power is provided by four diesel generator sets with a capacity of 525 kva each, and one emergency generator rated 210 kva.
The air conditioning and other ventilation plants meet the requirements of the proposed service.
For the safety of the 920 passengers and the crew, eight motor lifeboats and 20 life rafts with a total capacity of 756 and 500 persons, respectively, are provided on board, meeting the highest requirements of SOLAS 1974.
The ship is divided into four fire zones. A smoke- and fire-detecting system is installed in the machinery spaces, cargo holds, and air conditioning rooms. A C02 firefighting system is provided in the engine rooms and cargo holds, while a sprinkler system is fitted in all other areas of the vessel. All fire alarms are connected to a central system located on the bridge, with optical and acoustical indications.
The ship is divided into 11 watertight compartments, with all watertight doors closed and opened electrohydraulically from the bridge, and hand-hydraulically from above the bulkhead deck and both sides of the doors.
The Kelimutu and the Lawit were built in compliance with the regulations of the Indonesian classification society KI and under survey of Germanischer Lloyd to the class + A100 A4 Passenger Ship +MC AUT.
