Newport News Reports

Fourth Year Of Higher

Operating Income

Newport News Shipbuilding

Co. reported recently that oper- ating income increased 35 per- cent to $111 million from $82 million in 1981, the fourth year of higher operating income.

The shipyard had sales of $1.3 billion, up 19 percent from 1981 sales of $1.1 billion.

Including the December Navy contract of $3.1 billion for two

Nimitz-class nuclear-powered air- craft carriers, the shipyard had a year-end backlog of $8.5 billion.

The carrier contract is the larg- est contract ever awarded by the

Navy. "We are pleased with our 1982 financial performance," said Ed- ward Campbell, company presi- dent and chief executive officer. "Much of the credit goes to our employees, salaried and hourly paid, who have responded to the challenge of working smarter and increasing productivity."

The shipyard delivered three

Navy ships and launched two submarines in 1982. The Nimitz- class carrier Carl Vinson and the

Los Angeles-class nuclear-pow- ered submarines Atlanta and

Houston joined the fleet from the

Newport News yard.

The Los Angeles-class subma- rines Buffalo and Salt Lake City were launched, and the yard

March 1, 1983 worked on the Nimitz-class car- rier Theodore Roosevelt and nine nuclear-powered submarines.

Newport News Shipbuilding is a subsidiary of Tenneco Inc., a

Houston-based conglomerate.

Tenneco also announced this week that net income for 1982 and for the year's fourth quarter were up.

Tenneco chairman and chief executive officer James Ketelsen said 1982 income from continuing operations was $840 million, up 5 percent from $798 million in 1981.

Mr. Ketelsen called the increase "a commendable achievement in a tough year." Tenneco sales and operating revenues in 1982 were $15 billion, about the same as in 1981.

In the fourth quarter of 1982, income from continuing opera- tions was $278 million, up 9 per- cent from 1981.

U.S. Coast Guard approved.

Special Filtering


One outstanding feature of SFC BW (Separator Filter

Coalescer Bilge Water)

Oil/Water Separators is the permanent final filter bed. Composed of specially treated oleophilic particles, it can be used over and over again. With heavy use, an annual topping of 5% to 15% is the only filter bed maintenance required.

Moreover, treated water discharges are typically less than 2 parts per million of oil... well below the allowable 15 parts per million.


Operation with

Automatic Option.

Because of the permanent final filter bed, SFC|

BW Separators ordered with thei automatic option can operate unattended for weeks at a time. Whenever the filter bed reaches a pre-set degree of oil saturation, a very accurate vacuum-operated controller stops separation, initiates a cleansing back-flush cycle and

Automatic valve provides total "hands-off" operation. sounds an alarm.

After back-flushing, separation automatically starts again.

The 20-minute back-flush cycle occurs only once every 12 to 24 hours of operation, depending upon oil concentration.

Unique Compact


Because of the permanent filter bed, which requires only limited access annually, SFC BW units are very compact. All processing takes place in a single vertical cylinder requiring a minimum of deck space. A 2 cubic metre per hour unit, for example, is only 2 feet in diameter.

Every SFC BW unit is equipped with its own pumps designed to meet a vessel's needs. They do not rely on existing bilge pumps.

U.S.C.G. Approved.
