Wednesday, December 26, 2012

Almi Sky was built for Almi Tankers S.A. by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering, designed as double skinned construction in way of cargo tanks and arranged with six pairs of cargo tanks and a pair of slop tanks. The vessel has a continuous upper deck with no forecastle, a raked stem with a bulbous bow, a transom with open water type stern frame, a semi-balanced rudder and a fixed pitch propeller directly driven by slow speed diesel engine.
Environmental-friendly design is applied, such as Green Passport Notation, and ballast water treatment system, full double hull protection of oil tanks.
