Engineer Julio Krause - tanker

Built for Fiscal Oilfields, was subsequently acquired by the Argentina Navy on March 5, 1993; later within the Naval Transportation Service until retired in 2014. It is the first ship of that name in Argentina Navy. Transportation "Krause" had a mixed crew. It had 28 military cadres, of which 6 belong to the flat major, plus the commander and second. The 28 NCOs were divided into two pieces because these naval vessels transport had a very high level of annual navigation (average no less than 250 days at sea). Therefore, it had two identical endowments that alternate each month (the only ones always remain fixedly are official).

Saying "oil" in Argentina is naming the City of Comodoro Rivadavia and remembering the beginning of this valuable resource over a hundred years ago. Jos Figueroa Alcorta, General Enrique Mosconi, engineers Julio Krause and Jos Fuchs and Humberto Beschier, were just a few of the characters that encouraged this industry.
