Pennsylvania Shipbuilding Contracts With Siemens For PTO Generators

Siemens has been awarded a contract by Pennsylvania Shipbuilding Company of Chester, Pa., to supply the PTO generating systems for three Navy oilers, the T-AO 191, 192 and 194.

Each shipset consists of two 2,500-kw constant frequency PTO generators being driven off the main reduction gear. The function of each system can be reversed, allowing the PTO generators to serve as "emergency take-home propulsion." The contract was placed with the Siemens Marine Department, South Plainfield, N.J.
