Two 9,200 horsepower

DELAVAL Enterprise diesel en- gines power the 418-foot, ocean-going M/V Columbia, launched this year. That's some- thing of a checkpoint in mari- time history, because these are the most powerful diesels de- signed and built by an American company to be installed in an

American-built ship.

And now, the producer of

M/V Columbia's 16-cylinder RV

Series engine offers a new achievement in this line of great diesels. It's the DELAVAL 20- cylinder RV20, delivering up to 12,500 bhp to ships of all types, from tugs to modern 100,000 dwt tankers.

The sleek M/V Columbia is being built by Lockheed Ship- building and Construction Com- pany of Seattle, and designed by

Nickum & Spaulding Marine

Architects, whose other proud ships negotiate the challenging

Alaska seas and inlets under

DELAVAL diesel power.
