Saab Control Systems Ordered For Wilhelmsen Product Carriers

The new tanker control system from Saab Marine Electronics has been ordered for the two 63,000- dwt product carriers under construction at the Uddevalla yard in Sweden for Wilh. Wilhelmsen of Oslo.

Included in the Saab system are radar level-gauging in cargo tanks, electronic control of pumps and valves, and the engine monitoring function. Data is displayed on 20- inch CRTs located in the cargo control room and the engine control room.

The first Saab tanker control system is scheduled for delivery in May this year for installation on the first of four 45,000-dwt product tankers being built at the Boelweft yard in Belgium for Anders Jahre/Exmar of Norway.

Saab Marine Electronics is represented in the U.S. by Salwico, Inc. of Hoboken, N.J. For additional information on the Saab tanker control system.
