Corporation, Sturgeon Bay, Wis., to her owners, Sea-Land Service. She is the first of three sister vessels to be delivered this year by Bay Ship- building.
The Anchorage is powered by a slow-speed 7L70MC MAN B&W diesel engine supplied by Mitsui
Engineering and Shipbuilding Co.,
Ltd., which drives a Kawasaki con- trollable pitch propeller. The fuel efficient seven-cylinder engine is ca- pable of developing over 22,000 bhp.
The vessel has a beam of 78 feet and design draft of 30 feet.
The ship's propulsion plant is designed to operate unattended
ACCU, and all plant functions are monitored by Siemens computer automation equipment. Electrical power to the ship is provided through two Wartsila main AC die- sel generators, each rated at 2,000 kw and two Wartsila auxiliary diesel generators rated at 1,000 kw each.
An emergency diesel generator is also provided by Caterpillar.
The Sea-Land Anchorage will be capable of carying over 700 FEU containers of cargo. The ship, which has seven cargo holds, also has the capacity to carry a variety of re- frigerated containers in specially equipped cargo holds and at desig- nated areas above deck. The ship is capable of carrying 20-, 35- or 40- foot containers. To facilitate the storage and securing of containers above deck, the ship is equipped with stacking towers and hydrauli- cally operated hinged frames which rotate from a vertical to horizontal position, securely locking in each layer of containers quickly.
The ship is specially strengthened to serve in Alaska's severe weather.
The forecastle has a substantial breakwater built to protect the for- ward containers. Deck machinery is enclosed from the weather at the bow and at stern, providing a weath- ertight closure for the mooring of
