made of the appointment of Loren Arm- strong as treasurer-controller for Norris.

Mr. Armstrong comes to Norris from the financial department of International Har- vester Company, Chicago. He replaces Larry

J. Renaud, who was named general man- ager of Norris's controls operation in Hou- ston.

Norris is a Tulsa-based manufacturer of sucker rods, pumps, valves, controls and other products used extensively in oil pro- duction.

The Cunard Countess will be fitted with four Wartsila

Vasa auxiliary diesel engines.

The Cunard Line Ltd. has ordered four

Wartsila Diesel heavy fuel engines — the

Wartsila Vasa 4R32 type, for installation as auxiliary engines on the cruise liner M/S

Cunard Countess. The engines are capable of burning poor quality fuels with substan- tial impurities and a viscosity of up to 380 cSt.

According to Wartsila Diesel, the choice of engines was based on extensive technical analysis of several engine types, with the primary objective to find economical and technically advantageous replacements. With the new engines the fuel costs of the ship are expected to be reduced by 35 percent.

The Wartsila Vasa 32 engine is one of the world's first purpose-designed medium-speed heavy fuel engines. The same engine type, in its 6-cylinder version, is used as auxil- iaries on the M/S Song of America. Since it was introduced in 1977 this engine type has been widely used as both main and aux- iliary engine on a variety of ships. With its seven different cylinder versions, the engine covers an output range of 1,335 to 6,140 kw at 720-800 rpm.
