Marinette Marine Complete
Expansion Of Dockwall
Along Menominee River
Marinette Marine Corporation of
Marinette, Wise., has just added an- other 1,100 feet to its existing 1,100- foot dockwall along the Menominee
River. Planning for the dockwall ex- tension began in 1982 when Ma- rinette applied for grant funding through the Wisconsin Harbor As- sistance Program. Through approv- al and partial funding by the grant, the shipyard added more than $1 million of its own to develop the project at a total cost of more than $2 million.
The extended dockwall provides for additional ship berthing spaces and was engineered with deeper sheet piles to accommodate future plans for a large vertical shiplift.
The new wall also provides addi- tional land usage for the year, and greater water depth alongside.
The dockwall was designed and engineered by Owen Ayres & Asso- ciates of Eau Clair, Wise., the same firm that designed Marinette's ad- ministrative and technical center and new ship erection building.
Construction was accomplished by
Michigan Lakeshore contractors.
Marinette holds a 99-year lease from the City of Marinette for use of the dockwall.

Free 14-Page Booklet
On Gas Turbine Controls
Offered By Woodward
The Woodward Governor Compa- ny is offering a 14-page booklet on their extensive line of mechanical- hydraulic governors, electronic con- trols, actuators, and metering valves commonly applied to gas turbines.
The publication is divided into seven separate sections: Mechani- cal-Hydraulic Governors for Indus- trial Gas Turbines; Electronic Con- trols for Industrial Gas Turbines;
Accessories for Electric Load Shar- ing; Actuators for 2301, 43027, and 2500 Controls; Fuel Valves for In- dustrial Gas Turbines; Accessory
Equipment for 2301, 43027, EPG, and 2500; and Woodward Services.
For many gas turbines a mechani- cal-hydraulic governor offers the simplest, most reliable, and eco- nomical means of control. Mechani- cal-hydraulic governors combine, in a single unit, their turbine-driven- speed-sensing function with a hy- draulically powered actuator.
Electronic controls by Woodward offer extended flexibility with wide speed control ranges, automatic synchronizing and paralleling, isochronous load sharing, and inter- face capability with electric or pres- sure-controlled process inputs. Ad- ditionally, the Woodward 43027
Control and the Integrated Control/
Sequencer offer a virtually unlim- ited number of control functions for large and complex turbines, accord- ing to the booklet.
The Woodward Governor Compa- ny has manufactured prime mover controls exclusively since 1870. Con- trols for industrial gas turbines are manufactured at the Engine and
Turbine Controls Division in Fort
