First Mitsui/Hatlapa Ram Type Steering Gear Completed

Under a licensing agreement with Hatlapa Uetersener Maschinenfabrik GmbH of West Germany, the first Mitsui/Hatlapa electro-hydraulic, ram-type steering gear for commercial use was completed recently at the Takatori Manufacturing Company in Kobe, Japan, a subsidiary of Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding. The agreement, signed in February this year, covers manufacture and marketing of these steering gears by MES.

MES has been producing Mitsui/ AEG rotary vane type steering gears under an earlier licensing agreement concluded in 1962 with Allgemeine Elektricitats Gesellschaft (AEGTelefunken).

Now, with the addition of the Mitsui/Hatlapa gear to its product line, MSE is in a better position to meet the diversified needs of its customers.

The six first Mitsui/Hatlapa steering gears will be installed in 26,000-dwt bulk carriers that will be constructed at the MES Tamamo Works for Sumitomo Corporation.
