Croatia: A new tanker for navigation and transport for oil products in icy regions was launched at the Brodosplit shipyard last weekend (Saturday January 24).
‘ The Swedish owner of newbuilding 462, a tanker with a 65,056-tonne capacity, is Concordia Maritime. The tanker was built in accordance with the MAX concept is characterized by good economy, high flexibility and a high level of safety. Its wider hull design means that the vessel can load about 30 percent more cargo without its draught being affected. In addition to having mandatory double hulls, the vessel has double main engines in two completely separate engine rooms, double rudders and steering gear, two propellers and double control systems. All these double systems can be operated independently of each other, which results in even safer oil transportation. This is the first ship of a total of four in a handmax fleet building program which Concordia contracted Brodosplit to build.
