Almi Sky

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. A Pre Swirl Stator is installed at the stern frame in front of the propeller as energy saving device. One of very special features is main propulsion machinery. The main engine is installed with derating for low fuel consumption, however, all the auxiliary machinery including propeller and shaft have been designed to be operable at full nominal rating of main engine.
