The expanding capabilities of
Norfolk Shipbuilding & Drydock
Corporation's three shipyards lo- cated in Norfolk, Va., are de- scribed and pictured in a recently published four-color brochure.
Established 60 years ago, Nor- shipco has grown into a three- yard "ship repair city" with a work force of more than 3,300.
It has comprehensive in-house ca- pability for ship repair, conver- sion, and new construction, and a range of mobile services for many types of repair work on vessels outside the shipyards.
Two of the Norshipco yards—
Berkley and Brambleton—are lo- cated on branches of the Eliza- beth River; the Southern plant is on the Eastern Branch of Nor- folk Harbor. Berkley, the largest plant, is for work on major ocean- going vessels, and is the site of major expanded facilities includ- ing the giant new floating dry- dock, concrete pier, and hammer- head crane.

Steam Engine Literature
Available From Skinner
Renewed interest in coal and other non-petroleum fuels has prompted Skinner Engine Com- pany to offer Bulletin STE-677 on its multi-cylinder Universal
Unaflow® Steam Engine. The com- pany has been a pioneer in design and construction of steam engines since 1868.
Skinner steam engines powered thousands of ships in the first half of this century, and there is active interest in returning to this form of propulsion.
The bulletin details the fea- tures which make the "Universal
Unaflow" a dependable, low-main- tenance method of generating electricity, driving compressors and pumps, refrigeration and air- conditioning and other equipment.
Steam engines have found wide application in petrochemical proc- essing, sugar refineries, office buildings, hospitals and many oth- er manufacturing and institution- al situations.
