Ship naming

 

 

 

Martime Connector


Ship naming ceremony is held at the shipyard when a new ship is ready to sail out after undergoing the required sea trials. Once the construction of a ship is completed, the ship owner is notified of the completion and a particular date is fixed for its naming ceremony. On the day of ceremony, the owner arrives at the shipyard with family members, friends, and business partners with a pre-decided name. Ship naming and launching procedures are arranged to provide a ship hull with her identity.

Ship Sizes

 

 

 

Cargo ships or vessels come in different types and sizes to meet the various demands of marine cargo transportation. Cargo ships  are categorised partly by capacity and partly by dimensions (often related to the different canals and canal locks they are traveling through). Sizes of cargo vessels range from a modest handysize carriers(10,000 - 30,000 DWT) to mammoth VLCC and ULCC super tankers with a capacity to carry cargoes of more than 200,000 DWT. Aframax and Panamax are mid-sized cargo vessels.

Aframax 

AFRA stands for Average Freight Rate Assessment. As the name suggests, Aframax are medium-sized oil tankers with a dead weight tonnage (DWT) between 80,000 and 119,999. Though relatively small in size in comparison to VLCC and ULCC, Aframaxtankers
