Another Successful 8400DWT Chemical Tanker Launch

8400DWT chemical tanker MED PAKİZE with hull number NB009, being built for YMN Tanker Marine Management, was successfully launched in Atlas Shipyard on June 25, 2019.

YMN Tanker Marine Management has seven sisters of MED PAKİZE in its fleet at the moment. Another 8400DWT newbuilding project, MED EMRE (hull no: ER08) which will be managed by YMN, was launched in Med Marine owned Ereğli Shipyard on June 20, 2019.

12 pcs FRAMO hydraulically driven, single stage, submerged deepwell pump, type SD 150, with the capacity 350 m3/h at 110 mlc, gravity 0.8 t/m3 and viscosity 1.0 cst are installed for cargo tanks. Additionally, 2 pcs FRAMO hydraulically driven submerged deepwell pump, type SD 100, are supplied for slop tank with 100 m3/h at 110 mlc, gravity 0.8 t/m3 and viscosity 1.0 cst capacity.

In addition, Nitrogen Gas Generator system is designed in order to fill 5% ullage volume of all cargo tanks and slop tanks at the same time.

The vessel is a is capable of carrying large range of liquid cargoes, petroleum products and vegetable oils. Cargo area is divided to 12 cargo tanks by means of oil-tight corrugated transverse bulkheads and longitudinal bulkhead in CL. The vessel is also equipped with 2 slop tanks on deck. Designation of full segregation gives the vessel high flexibility. Marineline cargo tank coating has been applied to all cargo tanks.
