Mitsui Completes Big Products Tanker For Olympos Trading Corporation
The 66,800-dwt petroleum products carrier Urania Coulouthros (shown above) was delivered recently at the Tamamo Works of Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding Company in Japan to Olympos Trading Corporation of Liberia. The Panamax tanker is equipped with a crude oil washing (COW) system to permit carriage of crude as well as oil products.
All her cargo tanks are coated internally with pure epoxy.
Designed in accordance with not only the requirements of the 1973 International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships and the 1978 Protocol relating thereto; the 1974 Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, and its 1978 Protocol and 1981 Amendment; but also meets the pertinent rules of the U.S., Canada, and the Panama Canal Commission, qualifying the vessel for service anywhere in the world.
Cargo oil pumps and the principal valves of cargo oil lines are controlled remotely from the cargo control room, and oil levels and temperatures in cargo tanks, pump pressures, and the draft of the hull are displayed remotely in the same room.
The tanker is powered by a fuelefficient Mitsui/B&W slow-speed 7L67GBE diesel having a maximum continuous output of 15,200 bhp at 123 rpm. Maximum trial speed was 15.8 knots. An engine control station with monitoring and control systems, including data logger and CRT displays, carries out remote monitoring and control of engine room machinery. The machinery and other equipment in the engine room qualifies for the UMS Notation of Lloyd's Register of Shipping, allowing unmanned engine room operation even at night.
The ship's electronics include a satellite navigation system, Decca Navigator, facsimile receiver for meteorological data, and a collisionavoidance system intergrated with a radar for better navigational safety.
The Urania Coulouthros has an overall length of 754.58 feet, beam of 105.64 feet, depth of 61.68 feet, and full-load draft of 42 feet. Cargo oil tank capacity totals 73,801 cubic meters.
