Submersible Oil Tanks for Supplying
The ability of lue German submar
ines to keep at sea for indefinite per
iods when hundreds of miles from any
German naval base has been one of
the surprises of the war. It is now
suggested that the Germans may have
established secret submarine bases
consisting of submersible oil tanks at
unfrequented points along the Nor
wegian coast and among the islands
at the west and north of Scotland, and
that the enormous supplies of oil re
quired for the operation of these ves
sels is obtained from this source. This
could be accomplished by meanB of a
submersible tank that had already
been invented for commercial pur
poses before the war began. This tank
is cylindrical, is 150 ft. long and 30 ft.
in diameter, and has an oil capacity
of 2,280 tons. It is divided into four
or more compartments which can be
used for various grades of oil and can
be emptied separately or together.
Each end of the tank is divided verti
cally into two compartments, the up
per compartment being utilized as a
pump house and the lower as a ballast
or trimming tank. With these trim
ming tanks, which can be filled with
sea water or emptied by means of
electric pumps, the cylinder can be
floated or submerged, or can be made
to float at ap angle with the pump
house at one end above water. An
electrical oil pump forms part of the
equipment. When a submarine or
other vessel is to replenish its bunk
ers it comes alongside, couples its
electric cables to the, pumps in the
valve house and pumps ont the re
quired supply of oil, after which the
tank is sunk to the depth required for
concealment. A picture of one of
these supply tanks in use appears in
the September Popular Mechanics
