Mackay Communications sup- plied the autopilot, as well as the
VHF and SSB radio equipment.
The containership, which mea- sures more than 713 feet long and 105 feet wide, has a design capacity of 1,650 TFEU (24-foot-equivalent units) or 1,400 TFEU plus 125, 40- foot auto frames (FAFs). A maxi- mum of 1,910 TFEU (or 1,650 TFEU plus 130 FAFs) may be achieved through four-tier-on-deck container stacking.
Refrigerated containers may be stowed in the holds and on five of 16 on-deck container rows. Holds are closed by watertight pontoon hatches, designed by MacGregor
Navire, for stacking on adjacent cov- ers. A water fire extinguishing sys- tem covers the deck and accommo- dations, while a CO fire extinguish- ing system is in all cargo and ma- chinery spaces.
The deck equipment from Ulstein
Norwinch features two horizontal shaft type anchors and mooring windlasses mounted on separate bed plates.
The anchors are two lightweight
AC-14 type. Other equipment in- cludes: centrifugal pumps by Weir
Pumps, Ltd.; rotary pumps by
McKenna Eng. & Equipment; air conditioning and s/s reefer by York;
HVAC and machinery fans by Buf- falo Forge; joiners by Hopeman
Brothers; switchboards by Point
Eight Power Inc.; elevator by Jered
Brown; electric motors by Reliance; heat exchangers by ITT Standard; and purifiers by Alfa-Laval.
The ship was finished using coat- ings from International Paint, with
Ameron providing the supplies for the bottom coating.

Verft yard no. 231, was delivered to the Western Geophysical Company, a subsidiary of Western Atlas Inter- national, Inc., of the U.S.
Powered by a centralized diesel electric power plant from Bergen
Diesel, the vessel's propulsion and compressors are all electrically driven, providing a high level of availability and redundancy. The
Western Regent also features four- blade screwed, CP propellers, driven through a single input, single out- put reduction gearbox. The vessel displayed a trial speed of 16 knots.
Shipboard and hydroacoustic noise is carefully controlled. Special measures were taken throughout the design and building program to ensure extremely low noise levels.
All rotating machinery installations are resiliently mounted, and vibra- tion characteristics of the steel struc- ture and hull is made without inter- ference from machinery and propul- sion plant.
The vessel measures 92.5 meters long, with a 20-meter breadth and a 6.4-meter design draft. It can ac- commodate 61 people, as it features five suites with a day room, bed- room and bathroom; two one-man cabins; 16 two-man cabins; 11 two- man bedrooms attached to day rooms and one two-bed hospital.

The 95,000-dwt M/T Futura, a double-hulled special tanker, was delivered to its owner Neste Oy, the
Finnish state-owned oil company.
The 790.7-foot vessel has a breadth of 131.2 feet and a design draft of 45.9 feet. The ship was specially built to import crude and oil products from the North Sea area to Finland, but is also equipped for worldwide operation. The ship rep- resents the latest development in tanker technology and oil transport safety, and is one of the few tankers with ice strengthening in this size class. The vessel has accommoda- tions for 18 crew plus two spare cabins. 58 Circle 285 on Reader Service Card Maritime Reporter/Engineering News
