History

This addition the Merchant ship fleet is an example of the feeder class of specialist tankers operated by the STOL Nielsen Organisation.

The cargo space is divided in thirteen tanks and two slop tanks. The hull is double skinned over the tank area and heavy fuel oil is carried in the engine room wing tanks and in the forepeak. Each Cargo tank has its own deep well pump and can discharge through a seperate pipe or though a common loading / discharge system. Cargo can be heated up to 65C by thermal heated oil exchangers.
