  • : TRANSOCEANIC FAST OIL TANKER
    by Hydro Lance.
    Above:  Proposed DocomUSA HARTH Oil Tanker, designed by Hydro Lance for 75 Knots, this vessel has a capacity of One Million Barrels (US) of hold capacity.  In addition, it is designed for multi-cargo capabilities of freight, cargo and/or bulk with some luxury passenger accommodations, thus assuring paid revenues in both trip directions.  Bulk oil, or certain other liquid fuels, are carried within cells,  inside the double-walled hulls.  The outer hulls contain fire suppression tanks, ship's fuel, prime power systems, thrusters, fresh water tanks, pumps, bulkheads and treated sewer staging tanks.  The wide house may accommodate vehicles, containers, heavy equipment and cargo, while the visible Hold hatches can accommodate various bulk commodities. The upper house accommodates a limited number of all-view luxury suites. Please note the size differential between the New Oil Tanker and Traditional Oil tanker at bottom right.

  • Akzo Nobel NV, the world’s biggest paintmaker, has developed a hull coating that can cut DocomUSA’s supertanker fuel consumption by more than 10 percent. According to John Wilshire, marine manager at International Paint, the Akzo Nobel unit that sells the product, the paint is being used on more than 400 ships in the global fleet of 70,000.
    DocomUSA is also considering alternative energy sources...
    Liquefied natural gas will become the dominant merchant fleet fuel within 40 years because of tighter emissions laws.
    (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2010-11-15/lng-powered-shipping-may-jump-10-fold-biggest-engine-maker-says.html )
    Nuclear power may be used to propel 10 percent of merchant vessels within 15 years, Lloyd’s Register, a London-based ship classifier, said in November. The carriers would need refueling about every five to seven years. (http://spectrum.ieee.org/energywise/energy/nuclear/could-oil-tankers-be-new-reactor-market )

  • While the Industry is Slowing Down, DocomUSA is speeding up!
    Ship owners are slowing their tankers down to save on fuel. It’s called “slow steaming”
    “Let them wait” is there motto.
    DocomUSA’s unique approach is designed to accomplish the quickest delivery time in the world while saving money on the return journey by slowing down and using a giant sail to save fuel.
    It is estimated that the DocomUSASuperfast Tanker will burn about 90 metric tons of fuel, known as bunkers, a day when traveling at 75 knots.
    DocomUSA can cut that to about 25 tons when sailing at 10 knots on the empty leg of a journey. That means saving about $42,000 a day at the global average price.
    “If I was a ship owner, I would be bending over backwards to operate at the slowest speed I could get away with,” said Martin Stopford, the London-based managing director of Clarkson’s research unit. “With today’s bunker prices, slowing down is going to be very high on their agenda.”

  • SkySails GmbH & Co., a Hamburg-based company, has created a sailing system that can cut DocomUSA’s fuel use by as much as 35 percent on the return voyage. The 320 square meter (3,400 square foot) kite, already being used on four vessels, will be deployed on the largest ship so far next year, a carrier with a capacity of about 30,000 deadweight tons. Supertankers are about 10 times bigger and will require multiple larger sails.

    PROPOSEDSAIL TRANSPORT
    FOR CONVENTIONAL DocomUSA OIL TANKERS
    Copyright 2011 Innovative Marine Technology, Inc.
    Adapting patented Tridactyl Space Frame Technology to the transport of a DocomUSAtanker across the open ocean, with the capability of releasing the tanker and adding a new fully loaded ship to the space frame- independent of any port facilities. This space frame design has the capability to use pure sail power to transport cargo ships between distant ports with only limited use of costly diesel fuel.

    THE BENEFITS OF SAIL POWERED OIL TANKER PROPULSION
    - Achieves typical cargo ship speeds comparable to diesel propulsion, at zero emissions on cross ocean voyages.
    – Multiply vessel potential sail carrying capability by orders of magnitude, with only a small increase in displacement.
    – Efficient use of renewable energy resources for ocean cargo transport
    This new species of sailing craft was initially funded by the National Science Foundation through the MIT Innovation Center.
    HOW IT WORKS
    The Tankers would be under their own diesel power entering and exiting their port of call. Once a few miles off shore the Tanker would be coupled to the Transport Space Frame. Then under pure sail power they would be transported over the long ocean voyage between ports on different continents. Once close to the destination port or ports, the ship would be decoupled from the Transport Space Frame and again under its own diesel power, maneuver into the port area and unload and reload its cargo.

    DNV unveils concept design for LNG-fueled VLCC
    Classification society DNV has taken the wraps off a new crude oil tanker concept. The Triality ship is fueled by LNG, has a hull shape that obviates the need for ballast water and very greatly reduces local air pollution. The concept vessel also recovers hundreds of tons of cargo vapors on each voyage and, says DNV, is "a major step towards the new environmental era for the tanker shipping industry."
    Diesel fuel prices continue to rise relative to natural gas. The
    price relationship between the two fuels recently hit a new high
    with diesel trading at 4.4 times the price of gas on an energy
    equivalent basis
