Caption: Crude oil tanker. Close-up of the propellor bearing (lower centre, circular) of a Very Large Crude Carrier (VLCC) being built in a dry dock. This ship will be a third of a kilometre long (approximately 330 metres) when finished. The bearing will enable the propellor to rotate smoothly within its housing. Crude oil carriers are among the largest tankers, with ultra-large crude carriers (ULCCs) reaching over 440,000 deadweight metric tons (DWT). Ships such as VLCCs and ULCCs, with sizes above 250,000 DWT, are informally known as supertankers. Photographed at Hyundai Heavy Industries, Korea, the world's largest shipyard.
