Çiçek Shipyard to Launch First of Four Tankers

Tuesday, September 23, 2008

The Turkish shipbuilder Çiçek Shipyard will launch the first of four 3,150 dwt chemical tankers that were originally under construction to the yard’s own account. Subsequently sold to Maltese investors, the first is due for delivery in November 2008 while the remaining three ships will be delivered at four-monthly intervals in 2009.

To be classed by Bureau Veritas and constructed to meet Ice B standards, they will be capable of worldwide trading, transporting oil products, chemicals (IMO type II) and vegetable, animal and fish oils.

MarineLine coatings have been selected by Çiçek to give the ability to carry a wide range of cargoes while high manoeuvrability is guaranteed by the choice of twin azimuthing propellers and a bow thruster.
