N a i k a i Zosen Delivers The P r a n e d y a Pratama

The 17,703-dwt product carrier Pranedya Pratama, recently delivered to her owner, Sunhi Scorpa, Inc. of Liberia, was constructed at the Setoda Shipyard of Naikai Zosen, an affiliate of Hitachi Zosen.

Pranedya Pratama is the first of two product carriers to be constructed at the Setoda Shipyard for use in the transportation of refined petroleum products between Indonesian ports.

The new vessel's tank arrangement conforms to conventional requirements applicable to separate ballast oil tankers for the prevention of ocean pollution. Interior walls of the cargo oil tanks and all the fittings inside the tanks are coated with epoxy resin paint, a paint of the highest quality, to prevent contamination of the product during transportation.

The 10,882-gross-ton vessel has an overall length of 158 meters, beam of 25.8 meters, depth of 10.8 meters and full-load draft of 7 meters (about 518 feet by 85 feet by 35 feet by 23 feet). Propulsion is by a single Hitachi B&W diesel engine of 6,160 bhp providing a trial speed of about 14 knots.
