Bitumen Carrier

7 200m3 Bitumen Carrier

The FKAB design is a bitumen, chemical and product oil tanker with independent cargo tanks for bitumen and asphalt with a temperature of up to 250°C. The vessel is designed with single bottom and double sides for ballast water.
The high temperature variations require special design considerations, mainly because of thermal expansion of tanks and pipes. The cargo tanks consist of two blocks, forward and aft of the pump-room, with five and four tanks respectively in each block. Each tank block is only fixed in the middle and therefore able to move longitudinally, depending on the temperature. There is no structure inside the cargo tanks.
Propulsion is provided by Four (4) stroke, medium speed diesel engine with a gearbox to be fitted with PTI/PTO and shaft generator coupled to a CPP!-propeller. Take me home device, to comply with ice rules, PTI from the auxiliaries.
In order to save fuel the shaft generator is connected via a frequency converter allowing optimum propeller rpm at various speed.
Fuel consumption per 24 hours at the service speed 13 knots 85% MCR including shaft generator engaged at normal service condition and 15% sea margin. Cruising range is to be XXXX nm with FO
