Great Ship - Silver River

Tuesday, December 07, 1999
Designed for the economical, international and ecological transport of oil and chemicals, Silver River, constructed by German-based Lindenau was delivered to one of the largest Chinese shipowners - China Changjiang Shipping Group on June 26, 1999. Classed by Germanischer Lloyd as a Chemical/Oil Tanker, the vessel is the third out of a four-part series built within 1.5 years by Lindenau. This newbuilding, which joined its sister vessel Gold River delivered on March 1, 1999, is a member of Lindenau's Tanker Class 2000 featuring internationally patented Lindenau bulbous bows - allowing the vessels to reach speeds of 14.8 knots at a constant engine output of 2,920 kW. Adding to Lindenau's trademark bows, which allow for high speed at low fuel consumption, Silver River fulfills all relevant regulations such as MARPOL, IMO Resolutions and Charter Requirements. Advantageous features of this vessel include minimum risk of environmental pollution, increased collision resistance, minimum effort for tank cleaning and minimum loss of energy for heated cargo. Silver River's high flexibility due to various cargo tank sizes and high cargo tank volume also offers a centralized cargo control via control desk in the cargo control room - providing economical and practical automated cargo and ballast handling. Consisting of Framo hydraulic-driven pumps, which are directly connected to five manifold lines, the vessel can carry up to ten different cargoes - separate loading and discharging up to five cargoes is possible. All valves, except the manifold valves are remote-controlled from the control desk in the cargo control room. Ballast valves and pumps are also controlled from the cargo room. Silver River is suitable for transporting oil and chemical products in 11 cargo/sloptanks and has a larger loading flexibility due to its well-balanced damage stability and increased longitudinal strength.
