Daewoo Okpo Shipyard

MS Tamesis, the first of a new generation of RoRo vessels boasting innovative designs has joined the

Wallenius Wilhelmsen fleet. Joining three sister- ships to be delivered throughout the next 10 months, Tamesis was commissioned in 1998 by

Wilh. Wilhelmsen of Norway — one of two equal shareholders in Wallenius Wihelmsen. Delivered on

April 13 by Daewoo Okpo Shipyard, the Mark IV

RoRo provides 35 percent more covered capacity for specialized RoRo cargo than the previous Mark

III design. Suitable for carrying a total capacity of 5,400 cars, the vessel is specifically designed for project and other unique or heavy lift cargo such as power generators, construction and agriculture equipment. Measuring 787 x 106 ft. (240 x 32.2 m), the vessel, whose name in Latin means River

Thames, has a deadweight of 38,300 tons.

Terra Nova FPSO


Terra Nova Alliance/Petro Canada

Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. T erra Nova FPSO was completed by Daewoo Shipbuilding &

Marine Engineering Co., and delivered to the Bull Arm Fabrication

Site for the work to install the topsides production module. The vessel is designed to work on the Terra Nova

Field. The Canadian-flagged vessel is registered by LR. The ship shape is designed to provide optimum seakeep- ing performance with internal turret mooring system with the assistance of thrusters. The analysis for the assess- ment of seakeeping performance such as vessel motion and mooring has been performed in consultation with the owner, was verified through model tests. Designed to withstand the harsh environments with extreme 100-year wave height in excess of 98 ft. (30 m), the vessel has also been strengthened for an ice impact of 100,000 tons.

Terra Nova FPSO has a forward deck- house accommodating up to 80 peo- ple, aft offloading systems with a max- imum offloading rate of 8,000 cu. m./hr. and topside process plant on the deck with a maximum production rate of 20,000 cu. m./day. Two sets of gas turbine generators — 46 MW each using dual fuel for main electrical power — are situated on the process deck, and two sets of key service diesel generators (6.5 MW each) are installed in the forward machinery space. The system is designed to hold the vessel on station and to propel the ship in transit condition with the elec- trical power. The system is comprised of 5 azimuth thrusters, 5 MW each, electric motors and drive systems.
