T.ESRA is capable of cruising for 27 days uninterruptedly. Her cargo area comprises double bottom and sides as ballast tanks, one continuous main deck, four independent cargo tank blocks and two cargo pump rooms. The overall hull structure including cargo tanks were analyzed by FEM tools for safety and weight optimization.

The hull form, optimized with computational fluid dynamics (CFD), is designed for minimum fuel consumption at economic mode with minimum hydrodynamic resistance. The accommodation area is arranged for nineteen crew members.

The tankers have DNV classification.

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
