Stolt Bobcat is chemical tanker property of Stolt Nielsen, which was built in 2009. The building of this vessel is part from acquiring of seven stainless steel parcel tankers at total price of 255 million USD. The chemical tanker Stolt Bobcat is designed and built strictly following the latest requirements of IMO and MARPOL for transportation of dangerous cargoes. The engineering of such cargo ship is quite specific and the restrictions and monitoring over the quality of the works is really on high level. The ship has length of 155.00 meters and beam of 24.80 meters. The depth of the ship is 13.35 meters and when fully loaded the draft car reach 9.50 meters. Stolt Bobcat has deadweight of 23,300 metric tons, gross tonnage of 13,516 gross tons and net tonnage of 7,143 net tons. The cargo capacity of the vessel is 24,724 cubic meters. The ship is designed as double hull tanker for preventing of water pollution in case of emergencies. Inside the double hull is the water ballast system, which supports shipâ€™s stability and maintenance of the hull.

The chemical tanker Sichem Onomichi is part from the fleet of Eitzen Group. The company is one of the leaders in maritime transport for carry dangerous cargoes and owns 83 ships. Sichem Onomichi was built in the ship-yard of Sekwang Heavy Industries in their shipyard in Ulsan, South Korea. The chemical tanker was completed and launched in 2008 and operated in different destinations, mostly in Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean. The cargo ship Sichem Onomichi has overall length of 128.60 meters and length between perpendiculars of 120.85 meters.The moulded beam of the chemical tanker of Eitzen Group is 20.40 meters and the depth is 11.50 meters. The measurements of the ship are really impressive for chemical tanker, as usually such kind of dangerous cargo carriers are smaller. The ship has deadweight of 13,105 metric tons, gross tonnage of 8,539 gross tons and net tonnage of 4,117 net tons. The cargo ship has large cargo space and totally 12 cargo tanks. The total cargo capacity of Sichem Onomichi is 13,395.54 cubic meters at 98%. The caqrgo handling systems are really high quality and consisted of 12 units Framo SD-150 cargo pumps with capacity of 300 cubic meters per hour and 2 units Framo SD-100 with capacity of 100 cubic meters per hour. The cargo system can discharge the vessel for about 30 hours if all the systems are working on maximum rate through all manifolds, which is 420 cubic meters per hour.
St James Park is the ship, which was highly discussed last days, due to hijacking of Somali Pirates. The ship is chemical tanker with deadweight of 13,924 metric tons and gross tonnage of 7,926 gross tons. The ship is quite large for chemical tanker, carrying dangerous cargoes from class B. The net tonnage of the chemical tanker is 4,736. The cargo vessel St James Park (or Saint James Park as it is also known) has length of 132.00 meters and the beam is 20.50 meters. The depth of the ship is 8.80 meters and the draft, when fully loaded can reach 7.90 meters. The ship is operating under the Great Britainâ€™s flag for the company Zodiac Maritime Agencies Ltd. The chemical tanker was built in 1993 and is sailing for the company through all the years. The chemical tanker is carrying usually manufacture of plastics and sailing on voyages between Western Europe and Asia. The ship has 30 cargo tanks divided into 3 groups â€“ 10 central, 10 from starboard and 10 from port. Also there are 2 slop tanks for tank cleaning and storage of the dirty water. The capacity of the cargo tanks is 16,207 cubic meters and the displacement of the ship is 17,792 metric tons.
Millennium Park is one more chemical tanker of the company Zodiac Maritime Agencies Ltd in London. The ship is quite modern and built in 2008. The cargo ship is one of the largest for the company in this class and has amazing measurements and systems for preventing of water and air pollution. The requirements of SOLAS and MARPOL and quite high for this type of ships, but we can tell that Millennium Park is covering all of them. Really this is one very beautiful and quite interesting chemical tanker designed to carry some of the most dangerous cargoes of the world. The cargo ship Millennium Park has overall length of 145.50 meters, while the length between perpendiculars is 142.30 meters. The moulded beam of the vessel is 23.70 meters and the depth is 13.35 meters. When the ship is fully loaded the summer draft can reach 9.72 meters. Really we can see the large measurements of the ship and can compare it easily with the other chemical tankers, because it is quite rarely to meet such large ships. Millennium Park has summer deadweight of 19,998 metric tons and the gross tonnage of 11,590 gross tons.
When we are talking about large and well known chemical tankers, we should not miss ships like, this one, which we will introduce in this article. The chemical tanker Stolt Falcon is the ship, buit in 1978 and gave the beginning of whole class chemical tankers in the company of Stolt Nielsen. The chemical tanker is neither newly refurbished nor most modern ship, but in 2007 it got the award of ST&T for ship of 2007. The ship is really large for this type of cargo ships. Stolt Falcon has length of 177.00 meters, beam of 28.00 meters and draft of 6.70 meters. The chemical tanker has deadweight of 37,200 metric tons and this is really large capacity for vessel carrying so dangerous type of cargo. The ship is designed to be safety and environmental, combining the modern technology and the powerful engineering developments.
Sunny Leo is new chemical tanker built in 2008 year into the ship-yard of Niigata Shipbuilding & Repair, Inc. under hull number 0027. The ships like this one are from lower class of chemical tankers. Sunny Leo is pretty small ship with deadweight of 6,717.55 metric tons. In spite of this fact, the chemical tanker is designed to carry all kind of chemicals, even the most dangerous class. The gross tonnage of Sunny Leo is 4,550 gross tons. The ship looks very small, and compared with the giants of sailing this is only the small sailing boat, but the price of the cargo and the voyages are as important as the other ships. The overall length of Sunny Leo is 109.61 meters and the length between perpendiculars is 103.00 meters. The beam of the chemical tanker is 17.20 meters, depth is 8.90 meters and the draft is 6.65 meters. These measurements are giving to the ship capacity for 22 compartments for cargo. As already mentioned in many articles the all 22 tanks are separated with stainless steel and the manifolds allow to the loaded each tank separately.
Bow Saga is one the newest chemical parcel tankers of the company Odfjell, which is among the largest ship management companies of the world. The vessel has deadweight of 40,085 metric tons and the Gross Tonnage of the vessel is 29,965 gross tons. Bow Saga has net tonnage of 11,269 net tons, and the measurements of such parcel chemical tanker are amazing, because most of the ships in this sector of Maritime Transport are smaller because of the type of cargo they are carrying. But Odfjel are innovating and modernizing their fleet. The simple prove for my words is the newest ship of Odfjel and exactly the ship we are talking about – Bow Saga.
