8400DWT chemical tanker Med Antarctic was successfully launched at Eregli Shipyard on March 30, 2017!
The construction of the chemical/oil tanker Med Antarctic (Eregli 30) started on February 2016, and a year after on 30th of March 2017, we are celebrating its successful launch!
Med Antarctic is a 8400DWT IMO type II chemical/oil tanker measuring 123,9m x 17,2m. The tanker is powered by a powerful MAK/8M32C mail engine developing 4000 KW at 600 rpm.
12 pcs FRAMO hydraulically driven, single stage, submerged deepwell pump, type SD 150, with the capacity 350 m3/h at 110 mlc, gravity 0.8 t/m3 and viscosity 1.0 cst are installed for cargo tanks.
In addition, Nitrogen Gas Generator system is designed so that to fill 5% ullage volume of all cargo tanks and slops tanks at the same time (padding) is possible.
The vessel is a single screw, double hull vessel, which is capable to carry the cargo a large range of liquid cargoes IMO II type, petroleum products and vegetable oils. Cargo area is divided to 12 cargo tanks by means of oil-tight corrugated transverse bulkheads and longitudinal bulkhead in CL. The vessel is also equipped with 2 slop tanks on deck. Designation of full segregation gives the vessel high flexibility.
The accommodation area is arranged for 17 personnel and 1 pilot. Single berth cabins are provided. Accommodation is designed in such way to ensure good insulation, noise reduction and comfortable habitability to the crew.
Class notations of the vessel are:
BUREAU VERITAS I*HULL*MACH-OIL TANKER ESP; CHEMICAL TANKER ESP, UNRESTRICTED NAVIGATION *AVM-APS*AUT-UMS, MON-SHAFT; CLEANSHIP 1; ICE CLASS IA INWATERSURVEY, VCS, MANOVR, IG
It is foreseen that the vessel will go under management at the second half of 2017.
