Merchant Ship Order

For United States Lines

The recent delivery of the Ameri- can Washington to United States

Lines by Daewoo Shipbuilding and

Heavy Machinery Ltd. marked the completion of a 12-ship contract that set several world records. The

USL vessels, built at Daewoo's

Okpo yard on Koje Island off the southern coast of Korea, are the largest containerships ever built.

The $570-million contract for the construction of the vessels also ranks as the largest single merchant ship order ever awarded, and repre- sents the biggest peacetime expan- sion ever undertaken by an Ameri- can shipping line.

Daewoo built the ships over a period of some 27 months, from the cutting of steel for the first vessel to the delivery of the 12th. Like her 11 sister ships, the American Washing- ton has the capacity to carry 2,129 forty-foot containers—1,232 in the cellular holds and 897 on deck.

Designed by C.R. Cushing &

Company, naval architects and ma- rine engineers of New York City, the ships are powered by a low-speed

Hyundai/Sulzer 7RLB90 diesel with a maximum continuous rating of 28,000 bhp at 102 rpm. To achieve optimum fuel efficiency, the ships operate at a normal rating of 25,200 bhp at 98 rpm, producing a service speed of about 18 knots. They have an overall length of about 950 feet, beam of 105.7 feet (Panamax), and design draft of about 35 feet. Each ship operates with a crew of only 21 persons.

With an overall length of 521.65 feet, beam of 75.46 feet, and draft of 32.8 feet, the ships will be powered by 10,192-bhp M.A.N, diesels pro- viding a service speed in excess of 16 knots.

In the harsh reality of an emergency at sea, time-after-time those who had the foresight to have an Imperial Survival Suit onboard and put it on, lived. Even when freezing waters killed their unprepared shipmates, Imperial kept them afloat, warm, safe and alive for hours, even days. In one documented case, four men survived nine hours in 35 F water with 100 m.p.h. winds and 25 hours on a frozen beach. Over 300 people have cheated death by wearing Imperial
