Kvaerner Masa-Yards, Neste Convert Second Tanker For Arctic Traffic

Neste Shipping and Kvaerner Masa-Yards signed a contract for the conversion of the 16,000-dwt tanker M/T Lunni for Arctic traffic. After the conversion, the ship will start operation for Arctic Shipping Services, a joint venture company established in Murmansk, specializing in oil transportation. The main shareholders in the company are Murmansk Shipping Co., Neste Shipping and Kvaerner Masa- Yards.

M/T Lunni will receive an 11.4- MW azimuthing electric Azipod-propulsion drive, which wil replace the existing shaft line and rudder. Azipod is an azimuthing electric propulsion drive, developed by Kvaerner Masa-Yards and ABB Industry. The Azipod unit to be installed is reportedly the world's most powerful azimuthing propulsion drive built.

The conversion, which will take place in Helsinki next spring, also includes the installation of new diesel- electric main machinery. The conversion is worth about $17 million. Last winter the M/TUikku, owned by Nemarc Shipping Co. (established by Neste Oy and Kvaerner Masa- Yards), was equipped with a new Azipod propulsion drive, after which its icegoing capability and maneuverability were reportedly improved.
