Hull Built By Wdrtsild-Turku Will Be Outfitted By Moss Yard

The biggest hull ever built by Wartsila was delivered recently to its purchaser, the Norwegian Moss Fredrikstad Verft. This project is a unique example of how shipyards in two different countries can carry out a cooperative building venture. The Turku yard constructed the hull and installed the main engines; the Moss yard will complete the outfitting and accommodations.

The hull left the Finnish yard for delivery to Norway accompanied by five tugboats.

When completed this 127,000-dwt shuttle tanker will carry crude oil from North Sea fields to shoreside terminals. The ship will have an overall length of 843.2 feet, beam of 150.9 feet, and draft of 52.5 feet. Main propulsion will be provided by two Wartsila/M.A.N.-B&W diesels, each with an output of 9,760 bhp at 95 rpm.
