The complete line of advanced, heavy-duty semisubmersible drilling rig propulsion drives offered by the Power Transmission Division of Western Gear Corporation, Lynwood, Calif., for drilling ships and self-propelled semisubmersible drilling rigs is described in a new comprehensive brochure.

The informative brochure describes the MGH Series Propulsion Drives; 960 MGH-TP, 2,500 shaft horsepower at 205 rpm; 480 MGH-TP, 4,000 shaft horsepower at 251 rpm; 660 MGH-TP, 3,400 shaft horsepower at 200 rpm; and 760 MGH-TP, 4,500 shaft horsepower at 152 rpm.

W e s t e r n Gear's propulsion drives are particularly suited to installation aboard self-propelled drilling rigs and drilling ships because they are compactly configured to provide optimum space use within restricted machinery arrangements. In service for more than 10 years Western Gear's propulsion drives have performed with virtually no gear related problems.
