Double-Hulled Products Carrier for Dubai Company

Thursday, October 10, 2002
In late August of this year the Dubai Drydocks delivered a handsome 45-metre lube oil tanker to Gulf Agency Company of the same city. The vessel, named GAC Mumtaz was built to a design from Mr. G.S. Chopra of Seatech Solutions in Singapore. With a beam of 12 metres the boat will carry up to six TEU (20-foot equivalent unit) containers in addition to three 50 cubic metre lube oil cargo tanks. Other tankage includes 60 cubic metres of fuel and 20 cubic metres of water. The steel fabrication materials for the hull and superstructure plate ranges from eight to eleven millimetres. The 3.5-metre moulded depth of the hull is built with a double skin and bottom for added safety. Accommodation is provided for ten people. Main engines are a pair of Cummins KTA19 M4 engines rated for 700 HP (Medium Continuous Duty) each at 2100 RPM. The twin Cummins engines turn into Reintjes WAF 264 marine gears. Operational speed is 10 knots with a 12-knot maximum speed. The owners are using this, their fourth vessel, for lube oil transport and supply.
