Inert Gas Generators To Operate On #6 Oil —Literature Available

Nine San Clemente-class tankers operated by Apex Marine Corporation will be retrofitted with pretested inert gas generators from Foster Wheeler Boiler Corporation, Livingston, N.J. The generators will be designed to operate on #6 heavy oil instead of #2 diesel oil, the usual fuel for this type of equipment.

Three of the Apex tankers will be modified at the San Diego, Calif., yard of National Steel and S h i p b u i l d i n g Company (NASSCO), while the other six will be fitted at the Jacksonville (Fla.) Shipyards, Incorporated. Each of the generators is capable of supplying 6,345 standard cubic feet per minute of inert gas at 2.8 pounds per square inch. All units are scheduled for delivery and installation by December 1981.

The Foster Wheeler inert gas generators are built and sold in the United States under license to Moss Rosenberg Verft of Norway.

Before delivery, their performance is tested at a facility at Tulsa, Okla., the only one of its kind in this country. A matching test site is located at Moss Rosenberg Verft.
