The building‘ of “Kosmos” III"
has been followed with keen in
terest in Scandinavian shipping
circles, not only because of the
size of the ship but also because
it has involved a race for time.
According to international regu
lations_ the whale-hunting season
starts on December 8 and ends on
April 8, and the ship had there
fore to be ready in time before
the first-mentioned date if the
owner and his hundreds of work
ers were not to lose the income of
an entire season. Moreover. Nor
way and the world would lose the
much needed addition of vital food
products which such a ship is cap
able of producing.
The Gotaverken shipyard was
working against rather heavy
odds. The launching. which took
place on April 9. 1947, was de
layed owing to the severe cold
last winter. and the scarcity of
material and man power, partly
caused by the fact that the yard
was engaged on several other big
tasks such as the building of the
passenger liner “Stockholm" and
the cruiser “Tre Kronor" as well
as many tankers and cargo liners.
However, thanks to the coopera
tion on the part of all concerned—
the shipyard. the sub-deliverers in
Sweden and Norway as Well as
the authorities ~ the Gotaverken
managed to deliver the ship on
time. In the later phase of the
work the yard received most val
uable assistance from about 150
NorWeginn workers. who were
placed at its disposal. and a con
siderable number of whom belong
to the crew that are now sailing
with the ship in the Antarctic.
The loading capacity of the ves
}se1 is 25,100 tons on a draft of 35
'ft, 137;; inches. If the vessel, which
betWeen the whaling seasons can
be used as a tanker. had been
built as an ordinary tankship, its
loading capacity would have been
about 27.500 tons d.w. The hull
is practically all-welded and has
been specially strengthened for
navigation in ice—filled waters. A
considerable part of the welding.
especially on the decks. has been
performed by automatic welding

machines, the longitudinal joints
on the two continuous decks alone
having a length of 10,500 ft. The
ship is provided with corrugated
longitudinal and transversal bulk
heads of the Gotaverken's special
design. She has the usual char
acteristics of a whaling factory,
although the lines are considerably
more modern and streamlined than
Ithose of previous vessels of this
kind. The captain's bridge and the
ideckhouse. which are built of light
metal, are located Well forward.
~and the Diesel machinery is plac
ed aft. with the funnels one on
.each side of the whale slipway.
lAbove this the aft boat-deck is al
:50 situated. In this way, a very
ilarge unobstructed flensing deck
‘has been obtained midships where
ithe whale carcasses arc- dissected
1after having been hauled through
lthe slipway in the stern by means
10f heavy winches placed on a spe-
Jcial superstructure in the middle
inf the deck. Modern electric ma
.‘chinery is used for the cutting up
:of the whales.
I The factory on the 'tweendeek
!measures 341 ft. by 8 ft by 16 ft.
ii" height —« which would be a ra
1ther big factory even on shore. At
ifull capacity with the staff work
‘ing in shifts day and night, it pro
iduces about 450 tons of oil a day
gand gives full employment to some
;150 workers. The machinery. boil
‘ers, etc.. of the factory are of the
imost up-to-date construction and
‘offer several interesting novelties.
{which make possible the extrac
tion of more oil than before. Be
jlow the factory are 60 oil-storage
ltanks with a capacity of 1.125.000
{cu ft. In addition there are some
30 tanks for bunker oil. fresh wa
;tcr, etc. In addition to the whale
éoi]. the factory produces vitamins
1and other medical preparations.
'EOne or more chemists are accom-
Q-panying the expeditions, and they
ihave a special laboratory at their
disposal. The ship will be served
‘by ten whale boats which are laid
‘up in Walfish Bay between the
|seasons.
‘ The various categories on board
have different quarters and mess—
;es, all spacious and practically and
fcomfortably equipped. The larg
iest messroom is that for the fac
itory workers. situated forward.
iwhich has seating accorfimodation
lfor 142 persons, and which is also
{intended to be used as a. cinema
fand entertainment hall.
In the deckhouse below the
bridge are situated the officers’
quarters and messes as well as an
1owner's suite. which are all taste
fully designed and decorated. The
hospital includes operation room,
X-ray plant, etc. There is also a
shop where the crewcan buy var
ious things. The kitchen is on a
-very large scale. The food is
‘transported by lifts to the various
icooks' galleys. Provisions for
iabout six months can be carried
:in the stores. which include re
lfrigerated space for meat. fish and
ivegetables. Live pigs will also be
:kept on board.
| The “Kosmos III," naturally. has I
ian extensive engine room. Elec-i
itric powar is used to a greater ex- ‘
itent than on previous ships of this
1kind. The power is supplied by 5
iGotaverken Diesel engines direct
jly coupled to 240 kw ASEA gen
‘orators with a combined effect of {
H.200 kw. The steam required for i
ithe oil extraction is supplied from i
‘a steam plant consisting of 6 boil- 1
iers with a total heating surface of i
10,300 sq. ft. ;
I “Kosmos III" is Diesel-engined}
iwhich is rather unusual for whal
iing factories. The engine consists 1
'of a Gotuverken 9-cylinder single- ‘
acting, two-stroke cross-head en-i
gine with a cylinder diameter of?
680 mm and a stroke of 1.500 mm. i
It develops 3.300 HP at 112 r.p.m.. i
giving the ship a speed of 13-5i
knots fully loaded. During the
Melivery trials 9, speed of 141g, 3
‘knots was reached. The tWO nux- 1
iliary engines. each of 200 HP,i
are also of the yard's own design. }
“Kosmos III" is the next biggest i
vwhaiing factory at present in ex- j
istence. She has been designed by i
the Gotaverken in collaboration‘
with the Norwegian whaling tac
tory experts Arnesen. Christensen

delivered mainly by Swedish and}
