8400DWT chemical tanker Med Tuncer was successfully launched in Atlas Shipyard on July 17, 2018.

Her sister, Med Antarctic, was launched on March 2017 and went under YMN Tanker’s management on August 2017. Three more 8400DWT tankers are under construction.

Med Tuncer (project name NB08) is an 8400DWT IMO type II chemical/oil tanker measuring 123,9m x 17,2m. Just like her sister, she is powered by a powerful MAK/8M32C main 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 in order to fill 5% ullage volume of all cargo tanks and slop tanks at the same time.

The vessel is a single screw, double hull vessel, which is capable of carrying 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.
