[yim216] Discussion paper: Comparison of single and double hull tankers

The purpose of this discussion paper is to provide information in light of the loss of the oil tanker Prestige on the comparative merits and disadvantages of single and double hull tankers.

It has been some eleven years since the United States’ Oil Pollution Act (OPA 90) and subsequently regulation 13F of Annex 1 of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships effectively mandated
double hulls for new build oil tankers of over 5,000 deadweight tonnes as a means of preventing or reducing oil pollution in the event of a grounding or collision resulting in bottom or side shell damage.
