Hagglunds/ASEA Gets $5.5-Million Order
From Baker Marine
The Hagglunds Products Divi- sion of ASEA Inc. has received an order worth approximately $5.5 million from Baker Marine Cor- poration of Ingleside, Texas, to supply low-speed, high-torque hy- draulic motors for the elevating systems of offshore jackup drill- ing rigs.
It is the largest single order in the history of the division and probably the largest single order ever for hydraulic motors. The division is a unit of ASEA Inc., wholly owned U.S. subsidiary of
ASEA AB, Swedish-based world- wide manufacturer of electrical and mechanical equipment.
The contract specifies the larg- est Hagglunds motor, 10 gallons displacement, with a double-act- ing band brake bracket for deliv- ery during a one-year period. Pre- viously, Baker Marine had pur- chased about 300 of the large
Hagglunds 80-series radial piston motors during the past seven years.
The Hagglunds type 8385 mo- tors are the heart of the Baker
Marine elevating system, which has a capacity 2 to 2y2 times larger than earlier rack-and-pin- ion jackup systems.
