Since the Hull unit is not waterproof structure, keep it away from water drops and
Fully discuss about the strength with the shipyard and the installer
before determining on the position and the method of installation
and necessary materials. When KDS-6000BB is shipped from the factory with a standard, the length of the TD
tank and TD shaft are set as follows:
TD tank: 1230 mm (Standard)
TD shaft: 1411 mm (Standard)
1.5.1 Installation location of Hull unit
(1) Select a location the least influenced from air bubbles, interference or noise. When standard TD tank is installed with shortened length, the TD shaft length should
be processed at least
Install the Hull unit on the keel within the range of 1/3 to 1/2 of the overall length from
the bow. TD tank length (Lt) + 181 mm
Alternatively, install the unit so that the center of TD tank positions within 1 m from the
center of the keel.
Install the unit so that the Flange comes above the draft at full load.

If a work space of (Lt +

1.5.5 Assembly of Hull unit

(1) Necessary length of TD shaft
When the installed TD tank is shorter than the standard length, the TD shaft length
should be also shortened.
TD tank: 1230 mm (Standard)
TD shaft: 1411 mm (Standard)
When standard TD tank is installed with shortened length, the TD shaft length should be
processed at least
Necessary length of TD shaft = TD tank length (Lt) + 181 mm
