Tough Lights for" Rough Seas hen you demand the best for your lighting needs, demand lights from The L.C. Doane Company.

Based on over half a century of providing lighting fixtures to the U.S. Navy, our lights are the toughest you Can buy.

They withstand vibration, salt water corrosion, and extreme temperatures. The benefit to you is a fixture that will stand up to any amount of abuse, whether in an engine room, on deck, or on an oil rig.

As a member of the Naval

Advisory Committee, we developed the criteria in use today that ensure the highest standard of illumination aboard U.S. Naval vessels.

Vessel Name Sea Turbot

Type DH Oil Tanker

Owner German Tanker Shipping

Shipbuilder Lindenau

Lindenau GmbH is no stranger to the Great Ships col-umn, and the year 2000 is no exception as the 32,230 dwt double hull Oil Tanker MT Seaturbot — one of its

Safety Tanker Class 2004 — garners the North German ship- yard its latest honor. In particular, the latest ship — built under

Germanischer Lloyd classification provides high safety against collision damage by construction of the hull according class notation COLL 3, giving the vessel a four times higher collision resistance than conventional ones. This is the highest safety class notation ever given by Germanischer

Lloyd for a tanker. To protect the structural- ly critical tank areas, a high-grade (epoxy) coating — Camcote MX — was used in the ballast and cargo tanks to ensure long-term strength and safe operations. Even tank sur- faces for short discharge times, less cargo

Along with the

Navy, you'll find our lights on ^ pleasure craft, • workboats. and ships of the U.S.

Coast Guard.

Choose from a standard product, or have one designed to your specifi- cation. Either way our products are rigorously tested to meet the highest physical and electrical standards in the industry.

Remember: We wrote the book on toughness. residues, short tank cleaning times and less slop amount. With an eye on the future, the ship incorporates an advanced, efficient and economically sound propulsion choice in the MAN 6L 58/64, which produces 8,340 kW and a speed of 15.1 knots at 100 percent MCR. Main and auxiliary engines already ful- filling requirements of future MARPOL Annex VI, (Prevention of air pollution from ships). The shipyard has built a model of the engine room in co-operation with the ship- ping company to optimize the economical arrangement of all aggregates including the pertaining pipes, cable trays and airducts as well as to design all workplaces along ergonomical aspects. The integrated engine control system and the power management system of auxiliary diesel engines and shaft generator ensure an economical and safe operation of the engines. In addition to the manual control of the electrical energy gen- eration in the machinery control room, the wheelhouse is fitted with a workstation, enabling the crew to choose the most economic form of energy generation.

The cargo space consists of 2 x 5 tanks, which are separated from each other by vol- ume longitudinal and transversal bulkheads. This ensures smooth tank surfaces with the following advantages: short discharge time; minor cargo residues; double safety against cargo contamination; and short tank cleaning time. The arrangement is highly flexible due to different cargo tank sizes and high cargo tank volume/deadweight ratio. The high quality (Epoxy) cargo tank coating protects the cargo tanks against corrosion and enables a wide range of oil and oil products to be transported safely and with highest possible protection of the cargo. To ensure a smooth transfer of cargo from shore to ship to shore, the vessel is equipped with an integrated cargo monitoring and indication sys- tem which provides: cargo tank level indication with tank radars; cargo temperature indication and monitoring with three sensors installed at different heights; cargo tank pressure monitoring with adjustable alarms; and manifold pressure monitoring with given alarms.

In addition, the ship comes equipped with a loading computer, which is connected to the integrated cargo monitoring and indication system as well as to the tank level mea- surement system for ballast and engine room storage and consumable tanks.

This loading computer enables the crew to control the longitudinal strength and sta- bility during loading and discharging as well as pre-calculation of loading conditions.

Finally, Seaturbot comes with a unique Emergency Cargo Discharge System, which allows, via crude oil washing pump, with connection to all cargo tanks, closed dis- charging in case of cargo pump failure.
