Cargo-handling gear comprises two Hagglund 20-ton cranes, one 8-ton boom, and two 5-ton booms.
The Hagglund cranes are of the automated tandem type, which enables one operator to control both cranes simultaneously, there- by doubling the lifting capacity when necessary. Tandem crane operation is coordinated and syn- chronized by a mini-computer. 'ANTILLIA' MAJOR SUPPLIERS

The oil tanker Arco California, second of two 188,500-tonners built for Atlantic Richfield Com- pany by National Steel and Ship- building, was delivered at the San
Diego yard. Like her sister ship

The tanker has an overall length of 952 feet 8 inches, beam of 166 feet, depth of 78 feet, and full- load draft of 59 feet 3 inches. She has a cargo capacity of 1,320,000 barrels, and a complement of only 27 men.
Main components of the power plant are the General Electric turbines and gears, and the Com- bustion Engineering boilers. When operating at 80 percent of the rated 28,000 shp, the ship has a service speed of 14y4 knots.
