Diesel Power Review —Transamerica Delaval (continued from page 47)
Delaval RV-16 diesels were the choice to power six 47,000-dwt
Catug petroleum carriers. The barges are being built by Beth- lehem Steel's Sparrows Point yard, and subcontractor Halter
Marine of New Orleans is build- ing the tugs. Each tug-barge unit is powered by twin direct-revers- ing diesels, each engine rated at 9,100 bhp.
Twin Delaval RV-16 engines propel U.S. Steel's 1,000-foot ore carrier, the Edwin H. Gott. A re- cent inspection of the main pro- pulsion engines after the Gott's second year of service provided an opportunity to assess RV-16 durability after burning heavy fuel for 10,000 hours of service, two-thirds of that time at full power. According to the inspect- ing engineers' reports, pistons, cylinders, and cylinder heads showed very low wear rates; ash deposits were minimal, and in- ternals of the engine were de- scribed as "exceptionally clean."

CORPORATION 1 6 Bahama Circle, Tampa, FL 33606 (813) 251-301 7 leans marks Delaval's entry into the important auxiliary marine power area. The 860-foot vessels each will be equipped with three
Delaval 2,500-kw DMR46, in-line medium-speed diesels, fully pre- packaged with generators and auxiliaries. Compatability with heavy fuels, long a Delaval fea- ture in its traditional role as builder of main propulsion units, was a key criterion in the en- gine's selection for auxiliary power.

Wartsila A.B., Finland, comprises the Wartsila Vasa Factory in Fin- land and Nohab Diesel A.B. in
Sweden. Its Nohab and Vasa en- gines are medium-speed, four- cycle diesels with an output range from 690 bhp to 8,250 bhp.
Wartsila has a long tradition in the design, development, and manufacturing of diesel engines.
Due to the company's compre- hensive product development,
Wartsila engines already meet the requirements of the future in regard to burning low-grade fuel, good fuel consumption rates, and excellent service economy.
