the highly regarded Series 396 diesel engine program, used widely in many high-performance marine ap- plications throughout the world.
This new equipment will join two
MTU 6V396TB83 diesel engines currently installed on the SES-200 to drive four large lift fans used to pump air into the SES cushion. The 6V396 engines were installed at the end of 1988 to enhance lift-system performance and to test advanced
SES ride-control systems. Each en- gine drives one fan from each end through a Vulkan torsional cou- pling. This drive solution signifi- cantly reduces weight and space re- quirements of lift-fan systems and was first used on the SES-200.

MTU, KaMeWa To Supply
For Repowering U.S. Navy SES-200
MTU North America has been awarded a contract by the U.S.
Navy's David Taylor Research Cen- ter to supply main propulsion diesel engines and, as U.S. representative for Sweden's KaMeWa AB, waterjet propulsion units for the repowering of the Navy's 160-foot, 200-ton sur- face-effect research ship, SES-200.
The new propulsion plant for the
SES-200 will consist of two MTU 16V396TB94 marine diesel engines rated at 2,560 kw (3,433 bhp) each at 2,100 rpm. Coupled to ZF BW755 marine reduction gears (1.87:1), the engines will drive KaMeWa 71S62/6 waterjets via 30-foot-long, 5-inch- diameter intermediate shafts.
The repowering of the SES-200 is sponsored by the Department of
Defense Foreign Weapons Evalua- tion/NATO Comparative Testing
Program, the purpose of which is to evaluate foreign systems and equip- ment to determine the potential for
U.S. service use. "By awarding the contract to
MTU, the U.S. Navy has demon- strated its commitment to objec- tively evaluating technologically advanced components for future high-speed naval vessels," said
Ray Carrell, MTU North Amer- ica president and CEO. "The 16V396TB94 engine, identical to those which recently powered the
Gentry Eagle's record-breaking trans-Atlantic crossing, was selected for this program because of its out- standing performance characteris- tics and its proven reliability. In addition, MTU was chosen for its ability to provide a complete, sys- tem-engineered waterjet propulsion package. We are very pleased to be working with the U.S. Navy on this project and look forward to the advances it will bring to the field of high-performance ship design tech- nology."
The 16V396TB94 engine is
MTU's most advanced version of

Trinity To Build
Fifth Army LSV
Under $10-Million Pact
The U.S. Army has awarded Moss
Point Marine, Inc., Escatawpa,
Miss., a $10-million contract to build the fifth of a new class of 274- foot Logistics Support Vessels (LSV).
The new ship will actually be built by a sister company in the
Trinity Marine Group, Halter Ma- rine at Moss Point, Miss., since
Moss Point Marine is occupied with building and completing thirty-five 175-foot Army LCU-2000 landing craft.
The LSV is capable of delivering large quantities of cargo to almost any beach or port facility in the world.
With ramps fore and aft, the ship has a drive-through capability and
Space saving physical/ Oca • chemical design requires 90% less space ^ than biological systems.
