Hitachi Zosen Delivers Products Carrier To Panamanian Owner

The 17,780-dwt products carrier Pertamina 1023 (shown above), constructed at the Maizuru Works of Hitachi Zosen, was delivered recently to Scorpa Pranedya Shipping, Inc., Panama. She is the fifth products carrier of the same type to be delivered by Hitachi for the transportation of refined pe- troleum products such as jet fuel, kerosene, diesel oil, and aviation gasoline between Indonesian ports and harbors.

The ship is constructed to satisfy all oil tanker requirements of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships 1973, and the Convention's Protocol of 1978 that will come into effect soon.

All interior walls and fittings of cargo tanks are coated with epoxy resin paint, a coating of the highest quality, to prevent rust and the paint itself from chipping off into the products during transportation.

The Pertamina 1023 has an overall length of 518.4 feet, beam of 84.6 feet, depth of 35.4 feet, and full-load design draft of 23 feet. Her power plant is a single Hitachi B&W, 7-cylinder type L45GFC diesel with a maximum continuous output of 6,160 bhp at 170 rpm. Maximum trial speed was 13.95 knots. The vessel is classed by Lloyd's Register of Shipping.
