Trials of Tanker Completed in Japan

Wednesday, September 12, 2007
The running trials of the tanker Prisco Alcor, built in the Republic of Korea for the Primorsky shipping company (PSC), have been completed in the Sea of Japan on Tuesday, Itar-Tass reported. A ceremony marking an official handover of the newly built tanker is scheduled for this weekend.

Dimensions of the Prisco Alcor are as follows: length – 935 ft., width – 164 ft., and total displacement -- 193,000 tons. The cruising capacity of the tanker is 20,000 miles.

As of now, the Prisco Alcor is the largest vessel in Russia along with a similar tanker, the Prisco Mitsar, which joined the PSC fleet two months ago. The PSC fleet now comprises 22 tankers, with eight of them having a deadweight of over 100,000 tonnes each. At the same time, the PSC placed an order for another six 100,000-tonne tankers, which are to be built and handed over to the PSC within two years. Source: Bernama
