Joint Venture Formed To Market Shipboard Computers For Loading

A joint venture to supply individually programmed shipboard desk-top computers was announced recently by the firms of Anchor Marine of Liverpool and Marine Venture Ltd. of London, U.K. Under the arrangement, Anchor Marine will write programs and arrange the supply of hardware, while Marine Ventures will market the product worldwide.

The French classification society Bureau Veritas requires loading calculators on all bulk ships under its classification. Anchor Marine officials expect that ultimately such equipment will be standard on most vessels.

Marine Ventures Ltd. are a London-based marketing company with agents in the principal maritime countries and who specialize in antipollution equipment for ships including, in addition to loading computers, oily water separators, closed-tank gauging equipment, inert gas systems, and marine sanitation devices.

Marine Ventures Ltd. is represented in the United States by Schnitzer-Levin Marine Company of South San Francisco, Calif.
