The tank barge Hannah 6301 was launched recently at Bay
Shipbuilding Corporation, Stur- geon Bay, Wis. The launching was witnessed by a group of Han- nah Marine Corporation person- nel and customers and Bay Ship officials. The vessel was chris- tened by Hannah's appointed sponsor for the occasion, Mrs.
Georgianne Lamb, executive sec- retary to Donald C. Hannah, pres- ident of Hannah Marine.
At 407 by 60 by 21 feet, with a capacity of 63,000 barrels, the 6301 is currently the largest of
Hannah's fleet of nine barges. It is expected to see light oil service on the Great Lakes.
This vessel, designed by naval architect George B. Drake Jr., is certified Full Ocean Loadline for
Subchapter '0', Grade A and low- er products, Type III hull. With 10 cargo tanks, she is double- skinned. The cargo tanks are
New Ship's Bell Logger-
Henschel Corporation of Ames- bury, Mass., has introduced a new ship's bell logger to its extensive line of commercial ship control and interior communication equip- ment. The new 10-2550 series bell logger will accurately record and display ship's control parameters using existing shipboard signals.
It is engineered for reliability, maintainability, and flexibility in a marine environment. According to Henschel, its use of existing shipboard signals makes retro- fitting and use in new construc- tion much easier than previous designs.
The 10-2550 series bell logger has a state-of-the-art microproc- coated with a phenolic epoxy.
Among the many features of the barge, it has three segregated piping systems with three John- son deepwell cargo pumps rated at 3,500 barrels per hour each.
The barge has four cargo cross- header locations, hose derricks,
Beebe winches, and a nitrogen purge system. The ballast system consists of five inner bottom wing tanks, forward and aft rakes, with two ballast pumps at 500 gpm each. The barge is also equipped with a Bird-Johnson 350-hp bow thruster, a 30-kw generator, two 450-cfm diesel air compressors, and one 10-hp elec- tric air compressor.
The 6301 features the Blud- worth articulated linkage push- ing system, is equipped to transit the St. Lawrence Seaway, and meets the height and width re- quirements for the Chicago River bridges. essor that provides increased per- formance and advanced logging capability. The use of microproc- essor technology also simplifies customization for each applica- tion, thus ensuring optimum per- formance for the user.
The main features of the new bell logger are: internal micro- computer-based master clock with battery back-up; synchro inputs for engine order telegraphs; in- dividual isolation amplifiers for each analog input; single line al- phanumeric printout; full func- tion front panel display; and au- tomatic checking of programmed test inputs. In addition, the log- ger may be programmed to record virtually any user-defined input.
