Shin Yang Builds Tanker/Landing Craft

Tuesday, April 18, 2006
At the end of March Shin Yang Shipping took delivery of an interesting new combination tanker and landing barge. Built at the company’s own yard to a design by Singapore’s Conan Wu and Associates (http://cwa.com.sg/ ). The 78x16-meter craft has a molded depth of 4.8 meters. Forward of the four-level deck house and beneath the ro-ro cargo deck, ten cargo tanks are arranged fore and aft in five port and starboard pairs. The tanks have a total volume of 1994 cubic meters. Named the Danum 23, the vessel’s primary role will be to transport methanol for use in making glue by the parent company, Shin Yang Sdn Bhd. (www.shinyang.com.my ), who are among the world’s largest plywood manufacturers. Main propulsion for the landing craft/tanker is a pair of Cummins KTA19 M3 engines each developing 640 hp at 1800 RPM. The engines turn 1.8-meter propellers through Twin Disc MG5222 marine gears with 5.04:1 ratios to give the light boat a 10.3-knot speed on sea trials. Two Cummins 6CTA8.3(D)M powered 150 Kw generators provide electrical power for the vessel and for the cargo pumps. For safety in the Bureau Veritas-classed vessel, the electric motors are located in the engine room with shafts passing through a forward bulkhead to segregated pump room. The pumps can be controlled from a cargo control room forward in the main deck house. The landing craft is also equipped with a Cummins 855-powered bow thruster.
