Oh, Thanks Novice! Your feedback is very important to me! Yes, I have more: a couple of oilers (but little ones), and then a magnificent looking (in the black and white photographs) liner. Here is the first oil tanker: Part of 1930 CAMPSA´s expansion plan, the twins Camprodon and Campalans were litt...

This Basque company tried to import oil and derivatives and begun talks with the Dutch Shell company and ordered an oil tanker to the also Basque shipyard Euskalduna. But two facts were against Sota y Aznar: the talks with Shel...

Of course, Henrik, your ferry is nicely done too! But the lines are so modern, without the romantic mists of vintage times already gone!

Thanks Char & Eswube for your positive feebback! In 1930 CAMPSA´s expansion plan, a rather small oil tanker was thought having in mind the city and harbour of Seville. So the vessel must be of limited length for being able to handle the curves of the river Guadalquivir and an equally limited draught...

Good evening, guys. Five 8,400 oil tankers were made for CAMPSA in shipyards of Cadiz and Valencia. Modern and well made vessels, but it was found that the bigger Campoamor and Campeador were more economical and more efficient to operate. Of 127 meters long, and equipped with two 4 stroke B&W diesel...

Good evening, guys. Oh, thank for your inputs! Thanks Luis, B and Hood! The control of the oil supply was vital during the SCW.
