|Teekay’s first shuttle tanker newbuilding for East Coast Canada (ECC) fitting out at Samsung shipyard on Geoje Island, looking pretty compact for a 155.000 DWT vessel from this angle.
Although generally classified as a crude oil tankers, shuttle tankers are to normal tankers like starships to skateboards; some differences are obvious, like higher superstructure to provide visibility over bow loading housing, but many more are hidden. In this case, there are no less than 6 propellers (plus extensive control system) taking care of the vessel's dynamic positioning capabilities: one variable pitch propulsion propeller, one tunnel thruster aft, one azimuth thruster aft, one tunnel thruster forward, and two (!) azimuth thrusters forward.
And, she's hull number 2184, info on her IMO number is welcome.

Thanks, OceanCraft and Herbert. Vesselsvalue is a reliable source, but for some reason Google refused to show it to me... :)
Thanks for the avalanche of new shots from Korea and Japan. For the moment production is still on turbo position. But for how much longer... Crisis, what crisis... (this one is in my record collection as well :-) ).
As for the BEOTHUK, she is IMO 9780768. No idea about the names of her sisters though...
