NKK To Build Two 300,000-DWT VLCCs
For Norwegian Owner
Nippon Kokan K.K. (NKK) of
Japan recently signed a contract with Norwegian shipowner Berges- en D.Y. A/S of Oslo for the con- struction of two 300,000-dwt Very
Large Crude Carriers (VLCC).
The two crude carriers will be built at the Tsu shipyard and deliv- ered in March and October 1993.
The vessels will be designed to have the option of incorporating double bottoms or double hulls. Additional- ly, each will be equipped with
NKK's new off-center propeller shaft (NOPS), which reportedly im- proves propeller efficiency by about 4 percent.
Sulzer RTA Engines
To Power Four
The four 300,000-dwt tankers re- cently ordered by Gotaas-Larsen
Shipping Corp. from Daewoo Ship- building & Heavy Machinery Ltd. in
South Korea will be powered by
Sulzer 7RTA84M low-speed diesel engines, Sulzer announced.
Sulzer said the order "marks a breakthrough into the Korean
VLCC market" for the RTA84M engines.
The RTA84M is the longest
August, 1990 stroke model in the Sulzer RTA series of low-speed marine diesel engines, and is designed for very large tankers, bulkers, and combina- tion carriers which can accommo- date large propeller diameters.
