SCOT concept


The design concept of the safe tanker provided with redundant propulsion plants and steering gear. The SCOT (safety chemical oil tanker) initiative is a response to the tonnage replacement demand resulting from the impact of IMO regulations for the phase-out of single-hull tankers on th lower tonnage end of the scale, in the 5000-10 000dwt range. The SCOT design found the fi rst form in the 8150dwt WAPPEN VON HAMBURG built by Damen, s Galatz yard in Romania. The tanker is accredited with 100% engine and steering redundancy as well as a double bottom an double side shell.
