“Builders & Operators & their management of tanker & dry bulker design”


Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers

SNAME Symposium, 18 – 19 September 2008, Athens

This paper covers the management of tanker and dry bulkers concept design and the role of Builders and Operators therein and in their capacity as decision makers.

Examples of ships built at various times have been used to illustrate the process in its various forms and varieties.  More recently the examples are mostly from Greek ships, built in a miscellany of yards worldwide and with some of which I was involved in various technical, commercial and administrative roles.
