Carrington Slipways Pty. Ltd., Old Punt Road, Tomago, N.S.W., A u s t r a l i a , on September 17 launched a self-unloading cement carrier. Named for the owning company, the M/V Goliath was christened by Lady Patricia Somerset, wife of Sir Henry Somerset, C.B.E., chairman of Goliath Cement Holdings Ltd.
The vessel is a 4,000-ton bulk cement carrier designed to receive bulk cement from a shore installation at the rate of 500 tons/hour and discharge to a location ashore at the rate of 400 tons/hour. Discharge will be effected by cement-handling equipment installed on the ship.
The Goliath's design incorporates s e l f - t e n s i o n i n g mooring equipment and bridge control of machinery. The engine room is approved for Periodical Unmanned Operation. 500-hp bow and stern thrusters are included to assist in berthing operations.
The main engine is a 4,250-hp Mitsubishi UET marine diesel engine direct coupled to a single fixed-pitch propeller. Controls for the bow thruster, stern thruster, main engine and rudder are located in the wheelhouse, and complete instrumentation allows the vessel to be completely operated from this position.
The M/V Goliath was built by Carrington Slipways, shipbuilders of Tomago, to working drawings supplied by M.J. Doherty & Co.

Single berth cabins, amenity spaces for both officers and crew, operational and navigational quarters are fully air-conditioned.
