Lockheed Places $8.6-Million Order
For Colt/Pielstick Diesel Engines
The Fairbanks Morse Engine
Division of Colt Industries has received an order for four large
Colt/Pielstick marine diesel en- gines with auxiliary equipment from Lockheed Shipbuilding and
Construction Company of Seattle.
Announcement of the $8.6-million order was made by Thomas J.
Bullock, division manager-govern- ment and nuclear marketing.
The four 16-cylinder, 8,500-bhp engines represent the first ship- set of propulsion machinery for the new amphibious, LSD-41 class dock landing ship program planned by the Naval Sea Sys- tems Command. Earlier this year an order for $4.3 million was re- ceived by Fairbanks Morse for two engines of the same size and configuration with auxiliary equipment for installation in a training and testing facility at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard.
There, the Navy's Land Based
Test Site will be used to simulate actual operating conditions of the ship propulsion system, and for operation training.
The two engines for the test site will be shipped in mid-1981, and the four engines for the first ship will be delivered in late 1981 and in the first quarter of 1982.
When funded, the LSD-41 pro- gram will involve a number of ships, each powered with four
Colt/Pielstick diesel engines. Use of diesel propulsion in these ships offers distinct savings in fuel con- sumption. The Navy estimates that eight of the new ships, in replacing eight of an older class, will save more than 20 million gallons of fuel per year. As the diesel engines provide improved fuel consumption, the LSD-41 ships will carry less fuel and still meet cruising range requirements.
