The liquefied gas carrier Sultan Mahmud Badaruddin II was delivered recently by Jos. L. Meyer GmbH & Company in Papenburg, West Germany, to P.T. Pupuk Sriwidjaja (Pusri) of Indonesia. Pusri is a state-owned fertilizer manufacturer and distributor, with responsibility for distribution of all fertilizer and fertilizer-related products in Indonesia.
The vessel is the first semi-refrigerated liquefied gas carrier in Indonesia and in Pusri's fleet of modern self-unloading urea carriers.
It is designed to transport ammonia from a new ammonia urea production facility in Kalimantan on the island of Borneo to domestic and foreign ports in Southeast Asia.
The gas carrier is 372 feet long overall, with a beam of 53.5 feet and depth of 35.75 feet; cargo tank capacity is 5,683 cubic meters.
Cargo is carried in three independent bi-lobe tanks at a temperature of — 48 C and pressure up to 4.5 bar. It is capable of transporting ammonia, propane, butane, butadiene, propylene, and vinyl chloride monomer. Cargo is cooled by a reliquefaction plant that includes two Sulzer compressors. Six deepwell pumps discharge cargo at a combined rate of 540 cubic meters per hour.
Propulsion power is provided by a MaK 8M 552 diesel engine that produces 6,200 bhp at 500 rpm, and a speed of about 15.7 knots.
The vessel has a dual classification, with Lloyd's Register of Shipping and Biro Klasifikasi Indonesia as a Type IIC Liquefied Gas Carrier, and is provided with an IMO certificate according to the Gas Code, Resolution A328(1X).
The carrier also complies with U.S. Coast Guard regulations for ships under foreign flag.
Marine Consultants & Designers, Inc. of Cleveland, designers of Pusri's self-unloading urea carriers, provided a transportation study to define the ammonia carrier's requirements and speed, prepared the design and specifications for tendering and contract documents, and represented Pusri during tendering, contract negotiations, and construction, providing both plan review and construction supervision. Marine Consultants & Designers was assisted in these tasks by Intership Services, Inc. of Waltham, Mass., who provided design and consultation for the liquefied gas aspects of the project.
New Superliner For Home Lines Against strong European competition, Meyer Werft has succeeded in getting a contract for construction of a 1,260-passenger cruise ship. The big vessel—she will be 670 feet long overall with a beam of 95 feet—was ordered by Home Lines Inc. of Panama, a company that has been active in the cruise business for a long time.
The liner is designed to operate in the Caribbean or worldwide.
Passengers will be carried in 550 cabins. Two diesel engines, each with an output of 15,820 bhp, will give the vessel a service speed of 22.5 knots
production. The first of its kind to be constructed with a specially designed GTT Mark III membrane cargo containment system, the state-of-the-art liquefied gas carrier is able to transport both ethane and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) cargoes. “Ethane Crystal is the world’s largest ethane carrier

bulk carriers represent 34 percent and general cargo 18 percent (container tonnage constitutes 71 percent of the general cargo total orderbook). Liquefied gas carriers account for 2.8 million gt of the total orderbook. Japan is the country making the largest contribution in this area, with 47.5 percent
