Indonesia DRU Shipyard launch DWT 17500 Oil Tanker with Evergreen marine airbags

The DWT 17,500 oil tanker, MT. Panderma, was launched on 2nd, December in Lamongan Yard by PT Daya Radar Utama. This oil tanker is the first launching to Jawa sea among the eight-series ships ordered by Pertamina with 39 units Evergreen marine airbags ( Diameter 2.0 m x Effective length 18.0 m ), he weighs 6,200 MT, 157- meter long, 28- meter wide and 12- meter in height.


Pertamina, based in Jakarta, an state-owned oil and natural gas corporation, who ranked No. 122 in for Fortune Global 500 List of companies with revenues totaling $ 70.9 billion in 2013, is now the second-largest crude oil producer in Indonesia. One of the efforts conducted by the state-owned oil and gas company is to order tanker vessels from domestic shipyards." We challenge domestic vessel industry to build eco-friendly tanker vessels with high safety rate complying international regulations for Pertamina. The tanker vessel order is in line with long-term business plan to reinforce our BBM distribution fleet." Wianda, the Pertamina Corporate Communication Vice President,noted in Jakarta.

PT Daya Radar Utaman ( DRU ), an Indonesia Shipyard, whose capability was successfully proved by the construction of one 3,500- DWT MT Musi oil tanker for Pertamina and he attracts other vessels orders also including the one we are discussing about, DWT 17,500 Tankships.

Qingdao Evergreen Maritime Co., Ltd, a famous integrated solution provider of ( Evergreen ) marine airbags launching and dry docking, located in China, who were supervised to design and operate " MT. Panderman".

" This is a complicated project full of surprise, our team flied to Lamongan yard three times before his launching. It is the first in China and rare in the world's history. " Said by Mr. Song, the chief engineer of Evergreen Maritime." The condition of slipway in yard is not suitable for vessel launching, people have to modify and reinforce it. Three times' visiting is just to ensure all preparation work are well done and on schedule."


" Based on theoretical calculation, oil tanker needs to be moved 40 meters ahead and ballasted 800 tons water to seek an safer launch. While all is done, actual launching weight for the oil tanker reaches 7,000 MT which needs 39 units Evergreen marine airbags finally. As expected, on 3pm, 2nd, December, MT Pandermman smoothly entered into the sea gently. Accurate calculation and good preparation work is vital during whole airbag launching process and that has been our pursuit in the past 10 years.

Shipbuilding and repair business is flourishing in the archipelago.DRU Lamongan yard has orders of 12 new vessels waiting for building. A ship repair yard, adjacent to DRU, all slipway are fully occupied, a mile away at least 5 ships are queuing. Chinese ship launching airbags make contribution to the boom, surely, in most Indonesia Shipyards you can find those black-sausage-shape-balloon from Evergreen.
