I genuinely thank all my seniors & colleagues at T-BHP for their enthusiasm. Truthfully I was bit skeptical that my thread will be posted.
A big thank you to mods

Her stats are: Length (overall): 227.101 Mtrs, Breadth: 32.24 Mtrs & depth (calculted from main deck to bottom of ship): 18 Mtrs.

She is lined up for dry-dock (kinda thorough servicing) by end Feb.2010 in (Zhanjiang) China. She set out sail to Goa yday & will be loading iron fines for China. Since she is 1983 built (the oldest of our already existing fleet of 3 ships) only cosmetic jobs will be done. The main engine's unit no.4 was recently overhauled by shore workshops in Mumbai & so were numerous oil & water pumps. But for sure, the generators will be worked upon in China. Since I'll be busy with other two ship's purchase I'll not be able to post her upgraded pictures soon. But will definately post pictures of my other ships (one of them is an oil tanker) Presently loading diesel oil in Sikka (Reliance refinary) for Tanzania.

@ Phamilyman: All our bulk carriers are Panamax size. I intend to take my fleet to five ships within 2010 / Q1. We already have three (including one posted).

@ Khan Sultan: You'll definately enjoy to know that the main engine BHP of my tanker ship is 18975. These days all marine engines have turbochargers. The posted ship's turbocharger can be seen in PIC 3. She'll be majorly transporting low ash coal from Australia Oor Indonesia to India & Iron ore from India to China & so the circle will continue. The engine is directly connected to propeller (4 bladed, dia 6.1 mtrs) shaft & thus no gear system. Her turning radius is 21 metres at half speed & can do max 13 knots at sea.

@amtek + @ alpha1: She consumes 7 MT of heavy oil once out at sea / per day.

@epicenter.rulez: Sulzer makes the most efficient marine diesel engines in tyhe world & surprisingly Sulzer actually comes from Switzerland (Country with no coastline). Next is MAN B&W. Thanks for the link, my technical department has WARTSILA engineers.

@Samtheleo: Yup my ship is quite a baby in comparison to those container ships. Do google for (EMMA MAERSK) she is the largest container ship in world at present & for JAHRE VIKING, world largest ship (a tanker) but most doomed ship too.

@gomzi: some telepathy man, because our next tanker has already been christened as "Enterprise". My ships are usually in Mumbai but they never come in the port. You can see them at anchorage from Gateway of India. But alas getting port pass is more difficult than meeting PM of India. (Thanks to attacks in Nov 2008)

@ElantraGT: I'll try posting more pics but getting entire engine is NOT possible. FYG: The engine is 4 floors high & but I'll try to get you specs from our technical department.

All my Seniors & Colleagues at T-BHP will have to excuse me for my sudden absence sometimes, which will be due to my erratic travelling. I wish I could kill my PA but she is very cute & smart.

P.S.: Enjot pictures of my Tanker vessel in my next post.

Now thats an engine, just overshadowing everything. Congrats on the purchase. Coming to the name, I see most Indian ships with english names whereas Chinese and Japanese ships are named in their own languages.
If I were you I d choose an Indian name, something like Vikramaditya, SamudraGupta, Maharana, the like. Even Chetak isnt a bad choice tough it doesn't sound very grandiose.

Phew!! This should be the biggest and costliest vehicle (if you can call it that) that anyone ever has bought in T-Bhp. Congratulations on your purchase.

btw, why is it being registered in Malta?

Is that why we see a long line of ships parallel to the coast from the beach? Seen this many times at Goa and wondered why they wait there and for how long etc.

Very interesting thread and congratulations on your purchase

Plus one to this. However, I have a feeling that Indian Navy would have registered most these names

May be taxes? Or the parent company might be registered in Malta

Hope all my seniors & collegueas at BHP like my purchase.
SPECIFICATIONS:
1) New Name is NOT yet decided. Most probably "ALDEBARAN" (Please feel free to recommend names but before 10th Feb 2010)
2) She is 1983, Japanese built 63,880 MT vessel.) Main Engine is SUMITOMO SULZER 5RLB76 (Max output: 14400 BHP @ 120 RPM)
Vijay, Congratulation, Something tells me I'm going to enjoy this thread you've started.
My recommendation for a name 'Jala Vijaylaxmi'
Are the main engines two stroke?
Goodluck to you

This is a fantastic thread. Can you tell us something about the crew? How many, are they Indian etc? And why will it be sporting a Maltese flag? Some information on its navigational capabilities also would be nice. Good to know that the ship wont go anywhere near the Somalian coast.
