B&W To Supply Six Marine Boilers For Three Merchant Ships
National Steel & Shipbuilding Company (NASSCO) of San Diego, Calif., has ordered six two-drum Babcock & Wilcox marine boilers valued at approximately $1.4 million.
According to a NASSCO spokesman, the boilers will be installed aboard three 38,000-ton oil/gasoline/ kerosene tankers being built at a cost of over $65 million for the Moore & McCormack Co.
Each of the boilers is designed to generate 57,030 pounds of steam per hour, with a superheater outlet pressure of 615 pounds per square inch, and temperature of 905 .degrees Fahrenheit when firing at the normal load rate of 4,035 pounds of No. 6 oil per hour.
All of the units will be equipped with a superheater, extended surface economizer, steam air heater and two B&W Saratoga-type oil burners with racer steam atomizers.
The vessels, scheduled for delivery in October 1975, June 1976 and January 1977, will have a shallow draft of 35 feet, a service speed of 16 knots, automated engine rooms, and semi-automated cargo control systems.
B&W's Bailey Meter Company of Wickliffe, Ohio, will provide bridgecontrolled combustion and turbine throttle controls. The combustion controls feature fluidic burner management for reduced manning requirements.
The Bailey systems will be designed for future unmanned engine room use. B&W's Diamond Power Specialty Corporation of Lancaster, Ohio, will provide boiler cleaning equipment.
The boilers will be designed at B&W's Coventry, Ohio, detail engineering offices near Akron, Ohio.
Component manufacturing has been assigned to B&W Power Generation Group facilities located in Paris, Texas, West Point, Miss., and Wilmington, N.C.
Boiler shipsets are scheduled for shipment in September, November and December 1974.
