Lindenau Tanker Series

Receives Two Nominations

For International Awards

The MAN B&W-powered Conger has specially de- veloped ship lines for an optimized speed/power characteristic and good seakeeping properties.

Her Jastram-Werke bow thruster improves maneu- verability, while her double bottom and double side shell lower the risk of environmental pollution.

The 23,400-dwt double-hull chemical tanker Conger, largest ship ever to emerge from the Kiel yard of

German shipbuilder Lindenau

GmbH, was nominated for the "Out- standing Oceangoing Ships Award" by MARITIME REPORTER and

Engineering News" magazine (De- cember 1991 issue), and by the U.K. "Royal Institution of Naval Archi- tects" for "Significant Ships of the

Year 1991."

The M/T Dorsch, one of the next two vessels of this series, was deliv- ered at the end of 1991. The third ship will be delivered at the end of 1992.

These double-hull tankers have the highest collision resistance

Germanischer Lloyd has ever clas- sified for a ship. All three have the highest IMO 1 class for the trans- port of chemicals in center tanks, and the IMO accepted these tankers as equal to the new double-hull tanker regulations.

Lindenau shipyard designed and delivered the first German-built double-hull tanker 15 years ago.

Since then, 16 double-hull tankers between 3,000 and 25,000-dwt have been delivered to international cli- ents. This tanker series is a new design and belongs to the Lindenau

Tanker Class 2000. The class corre- sponds with the highest interna- tional rules, regulations and envi- ronmental requirements.

The Conger is powered by a MAN

B&W main engine. Other machin- ery includes Renk-Tacke reduction gear, Vulkan coupling for the main engine, KaMeWa controllable pitch propeller and Yanmar auxiliary en- gines.

Esgard's 'Bio Kote' Protects

And Is Environmentally,

Ecologically Safe

The development and marketing of corrosion-preventive coatings which are not only effective in pro- tecting equipment but are also envi- ronmentally and ecologically safe has been a goal of Esgard, Inc. since its founding. The Lafayette, La.- based company developed its ma- rine ballast and void coating, Bio

Kote, to meet these objectives.

Esgard recently tested Bio Kote for the presence of toxic organic chemicals and pollutants to ensure company objectives are met. Also, the State of Alaska, Port of Valdez, expressed concern that coatings used to protect segregated ballast tanks from corrosion could be contribut- ing to the presence of pollutants which might be found in ballast water. The priority pollutant scan testing was done by the indepen- dent laboratory Hoh-Pak, Ltd., on simulated ballast water. Results showed no toxic organic chemicals or heavy metals present. Based on this data, discharged ballast water of tanks coated with Bio Kote will be free of pollutants which can be at- tributed to the coating. Therefore, operators of marine equipment can protect ballast areas easily and eco- nomically without fear of coating pollution.

Esgard Bio Kote is a soft coating which cures to a firm film and re- sists washout.

Kote from Esgard,
