MV Resolution Bay

The MV "Resolution Bay" was a container ship owned by Overseas Containers Limited (OCL).


"Resolution Bay" was launched and delivered to OCL in 1977, and was scrapped in 2002. The ship was one of two identical sisters built by Bremer Vulkan shipyard in West Germany, the other being the MV Mairangi Bay. Owner OCL was to later become P&O Containers Ltd, which itself merged with Nedlloyd Lines to become P&O Nedlloyd. "Resolution Bay" operated for all three entities, mainly on the UK/Europe to Australia/New Zealand route.


"Resolution Bay" had a tonnage of GRT|43,995|first=yes and a top speed of 23 knots. Length was 248.6m, and beam was 32.3m. She was propelled by two 8 cylinder two stroke slow speed crosshead diesel engines with a total power output of 53,280 BHP. The MAN engines, model KS8Z90/160A, had a 900mm bore and 1600mm stroke. They were each directly coupled to one of the two propellor shafts, turning them at a maximum 122 rpm. Auxiliary power was provided by five 1,500 kW MaK medium speed diesel alternators. She could carry TEU|2,344|first=yes worth of containers, 1,223 of them refrigerated (reefer) containers in holds below deck. The reefer capacity was one of the largest of any ship at the time, and the containers when loaded in the holds were connected to the ship's brine circulation system for cooling. The brine was cooled by a large refrigeration plant located in the engine room.
