Phoenix Super-Marine floodlights help light the way for new heavy-lift shipping venture
A new chapter is being written in
American maritime history by two new ocean-going cargo ships, the
MS John Henry and the MS Paul
Bunyan. Built by Peterson Builders.
Inc. of Sturgeon Bay, Wis. to U.S.
Coast Guard standards for interna- tional trading, the ships are owned by the American Heavy Lift Shipping
Co. (a joint venture of Gulf Trading &
Transportation Co. and Hansa Line of Bremen, West Germany).
The 3,000-deadweight-ton vessels provide American manufacturers with the first U.S.-flag heavy lift ships.
They are being used to supply the growing world market for large indus- trial equipment such as generators, nuclear reactors, refineries, chemical plants, oil rigs, locomotives, mining equipment, etc.
Loading huge units weighing up to 1.000 tons is a critical operation, with progress measured in inches. Work often goes on around the clock.. which makes dependable lighting absolutely essential.
That's why the builders chose Phoenix
Super-Marine floodlights. Each ship has eight Phoenix Model MRS-EB- 400 fixtures mounted on the king post cranes to flood the entire deck with ample light. Equipped with energy-saving clear mercury vapor lamps, these 400 watt wide-beam fixtures feature shock and vibration resistant lamp mountings, with one- piece cast marine aluminum housings and gasketed watertight enclosures.
