Vessel's Name Vinland

Type Shuttle Tanker

Owner/Operator Penny Ugland

Shipbuilder Samsung Heavy

Industries Co.

Vinland, hull no. 1293, is a Canadian- flagged 126,000-dwt shuttle tanker mea- suring 892 x 151 ft. (272 x 46 m), with a tank capacity of about 141,000 cu. m.

Delivered in August 2000, the ship is designed specially to cope with the harsh weather in the North Sea. For instance, the Dynamic Positioning System (DPS) that interfaces with twin CP propellers and four bow and stern thrusters, keeps the vessel's position automatically during bow loading, maximizing its safety and reliability when transferring oil between the oil platform and this ship. In addition, the ship is equipped with the special nav- igation device, which boasts suitable anti-frozen facili- ties in order to operate in icy waters at outside temper- atures averaging 17 degrees C below zero. Samsung

Heavy utilized many of the skills needed to construct such an advanced vessel during the construction of a pair of shuttle tankers, Kometic and Mattea, which were delivered in 1997. The shipbuilder also credits

The J.J. Ugland Companies for extending to it the con- fidence in the building of such technically demanding tonnage.

Vessel's Name SaiBOS FDS

Type Pipe Lay & Crane vessel

Owner/Operator SaiBOS CML

Shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries Co.

Samsung Heavy Industries Co. delivered the

Bahamas-flagged, dynamic positioned pipe lay &

Crane vessel pf SaiBOS in mid-December. The Sai-

BOS FDS, Pipelay & Crane Vessel has been designed and constructed with the regulation of DNV classifica- tion society. Tanks are contained within a complete double side/bottom/bulkhead structure with topside tanks, the inner line of which is extended to form the side of a full length upper deck trunk, also with double skin. In this way, not only is the threat of tank damage from outside reduced, but protection is provided against critical steelwork fractures in the outer hull, caused by extremely low cargo temperatures.

Able to carry a marine crew of 30 with a maximum 169 technicians, the technically advanced ship is out- fitted with the latest array of marine equipment. Sai-

BOS FDS — which measures 536 x 98 (163.5 x 30 m) — is powered by four Wartsila 16V26 engines, and is able to achieve a service speed of 13 knots.

Due to a production glitch, the following vessels from

Korea's Samsung Heavy Industries were erroneously omitted from the December 2000 edition. Following are details on OOCL Los Angeles, a 5,500-TEU con- tainership; Vinland, a 126,000 shuttle tanker; and Sai- bos FDS, a pipelay and crane vessel, all of which are honored as Maritime Reporter & Engineering News

Great Ships of2000.
