Sixth LNG/LPG Meeting
Gastech 78 To Be Held
Nov. 7-10 In Monte Carlo
Gastech 78, the sixth LNG/
LPG meeting in the series, will be held from November 7-10, 1978, in the new Spelugues Con- ference Centre in Monte Carlo,
Monaco. The meeting thus re- turns to Europe, following the outstandingly successful Gastech 76 conference and exhibition in
New York last year at which more than 1,000 participants were registered.
The Gastech 78 meeting will bring together leading specialists from the world's liquid natural gas and liquid petroleum gas in- dustries for the presentation of a comprehensive and varied pro- gram of conference papers and for working discussions in a re- laxed, informal atmosphere. As with previous Gastech meetings, there will be a program of tech- nical tours. These will be to cen- ters of advanced French technol- ogy in the liquid gas industries, including shipbuilding, storage and gas terminals.
An associated exhibition of
LNG/LPG equipment and serv- ices will be held in conjunction with the 1978 conference. A num- ber of companies have already reserved stands and as the total space available in the Monte Carlo venue is relatively restricted, the organizers anticipate that all stands will soon be booked.
The Gastech 78 Papers Com- mittee will shortly be meeting to consider the format of the con- ference program: intending speak- ers are invited to write to the
Gastech Secretariat, 2 Station
Road, Rickmansworth, Herts WD3 1QP, England, for fuller partic- ulars. "FflSTIJ
FROM LINE to "O o si! v> w
Line Fast's new Fastloc® has many timesaving features, such as the anti-jamming device for free lever operation which eliminates one of the major problems encountered in leverlock securing.
Another time and money saving feature is the "Dog
Bone", which enables side-by-side bridging of stacked containers.
The Fastloc® can be installed safely and speedily to the bottom of a container before it is lifted aboard the ship. This bottom lock feature, together with a pole- activated handle, eliminates the need to have men climbing atop the containers.
We promised for years to be ahead of our competition and we kept our promise again.
