Butterworth Systems New
Butterworth Systems, manu- facturers of oil/water separators, tank cleaning equipment, under- water hull cleaning equipment, and high-pressure water-jetting equipment has announced the ad- dition of two new models — the
Butterworth® SFC 0.5 BW and the Butterworth SFC 27 oil/water separators.
Like other models in the com- pany's SFC line (called the SEREP separator when marketed in Con- tiental Europe), the two new units have been designed to meet the stringent U.S. Coast Guard and
IMCO A393(X) regulations. Ca- pacities of these new models are one-half ton per hour and 60 tons per hour, respectively. Both ma- chines are said to provide clean- water discharges containing less than 15 parts per million of oil, and can handle an oil/water mix- ture up to 100 percent oil.
Additional technical informa- tion, and a recently published brochure, "From A to X About
Onboard Oil Water Separators," are available from Neil Chamber- lin, Butterworth Systems Inc., 224 Park Avenue, Box 352, Flor- ham Park, N.J. 07932.
Hudson Shipbuilders, Inc. (Hud- ship) of Pascagoula, Miss., has announced the signing of two new contracts for pushboats to be de- livered during 1980.
A contract was signed with
Cliff Spanier and Larry Gisclair of Clydesdale Corporation, Har- vey, La., for construction of a 70-foot pushboat. The vessel will be identical to the pushboat
Clydesdale, which was delivered in April 1979. Hudship has not constructed a new pushboat since then. However, they have been very active in the offshore and fishing vessel markets, specializ- ing in 112-foot and 120-foot off- shore utility vessels.
The company also announced that it will construct a newly de- signed 85-foot by 30-foot push- boat for Ralston Cole of Energy
Transport Systems, New Orleans.
The vessel will be powered by 8-cylinder General Motors EMD engines, and will have accommo- dations for eight persons. Energy
Transport already has in its fleet the Cindy Cole, a sister vessel to the Clydesdale.
In addition to the Clydesdale,
Hudship completed the 70-foot
John W. Stone during 1979, which was delivered to owner John W.
Stone of Oil Distributors, Harvey,
La. Hudship plans to continue building pushboats in response to new market demands. They will also continue building offshore workboats and utility vessels. $9.9-Million Contract
