Wow. One learn something every day :-).
@ Vladimir: what was the approx. size (kW) of this thrusters?
Was it fixed blades or CPP?
Just curious...

Interesting. You made me think, Vladimir, so I went back and check the (not so many) photos of VLCCs that I have uploaded here. Not one of them with thrusters...

But, I guess there's first time for everything, so I just haven't seen a VLCC with thruster(s) yet. :)

Spend several contracts on VLCC with thrusters.
Best Regards

Thank you for your comment, IACSman. True, VLCCs are not built to be agile. Like expecting dogfighting skills from an Airbus A380... :)

"No thrusters?" While I know there is shuttle-tankers having thrusters, I have never seen a VLCC / ULCC fitted with thrusters. The size of such a thruster would be enormous to have any significant effect to actually move a fully loaded 300 000 tons VLCC sideways. And, as another comment say about the tugboats, tugboats (multiple) is a port and terminal requirement both for docking and un-docking vessels on this size. They are truly not famous for their maneuvering capabilities :-)
Very good picture of a NB VLCC.

Thank you all for your comments. Here we can see the difference of design between Korean and Japanese built VLCC tankers. They all look "fat", but Japanese design looks fatter... :)

Nice one Vlad.

Not needed cause there are always tugs at terminals for such ships.

No thrusters ?
