Kaiser (T-AO-187), under construc- tion for the U.S. Navy was delivered recently by Avondale Industries'

Shipyard Division. The mission of the Kaiser and her sister ships to follow is the transportation of bulk petroleum products from shore de- pots to combatant ships and sup- port forces under way. These T-AOs will also deliver limited fleet freight, cargo water, mail and personnel.

The Kaiser has an overall length of 667.5 feet, beam of 97.5 feet, and maximum draft of 36 feet. Propul- sion is provided by twin medium- speed, 10-cylinder Pielstick diesels manufactured by Alsthom-Atlanti- que, driving controllable-pitch

Bird-Johnson propellers via Cincin- nati Gear reduction gearing. Jered

Brown Brothers supplied the steer- ing gear, and Tano the bridge and engine room control consoles.

Electrical power is provided by diesel generators supplied by Alco

Power and power takeoff generators by Cogenel. The ship's twin-screw design provides improved direction- al stability, ease of control, and mis- sion reliability under combat condi- tions.

The T-AO-187 has a cargo capac-


System capacities range from 39 to 1,320 GPH

Our Microphor/Taiko Oily Water Separators use state- of-the-art technology to separate oil from bilge water.

Compact, easily-installed devices utilize straight co- alescing method to remove oil. Separation is by grav- ity through a series of chambers. Low purchase price, minimum maintenance and economical operation mean our oily water separators are your best buy. Corrosion, oxidation resistant. Longer service life. Eliminate scheduled filter changes. Exceed IMO and USCG dis- charge requirements.

Circle 254 on Reader Service Card ity of 183,500 barrels of oil in 18 tanks, and is capable of simulta- neously receiving, storing, and dis- charging two separate grades of car- go fuel. All cargo pump and valve operations and the segregated bal- last system are manipulated from the cargo control center located in the superstructure aft. This center has a good overview of the entire replenishment deck.

Underway replenishment is ac- complished using transfer rigs with transfer hoses suspended by a span wire that is automatically main- tained in a constant-tension range.

The T-AO ships are also capable of refueling helicopters from a vertical replenishment facility aft of the deckhouse.

The Kaiser and her sister ships are being built using state-of-the- art modular construction tech- niques that include prefabricating and pre-outfitting individual mod- ules that make up the ship. Each of the large modular units is assembled and outfitted with piping, ventila- tion ducts, electrical wireways, and other equipment in designated out- fitting zones throughout the ship- yard. The pre-outfitted modules are then moved to the building site and erected into the complete ship. Pre- packaged units of heavy machinery are assembled ashore and lifted aboard ship for installation. As a result of these modern techniques, the Kaiser and the two already launched sister ships, the Joshua

Humphreys (T-AO-188) and the

John Lenthall (T-AO-189) were more than 80 percent complete at the time of their launching.


Meyer Werft

Jos. L. Meyer GmbH & Company shipyard in Papenburg, West Ger- many, this year delivered to Home

Lines Cruises, Inc. the luxury cruise liner Homeric. Built at a cost of $150 million, the 42,092-grt, 1,085- passenger vessel has an overall length of 670 feet, beam of 95 feet, and maximum draft of 23 feet. Eight of the ship's 12 decks are devoted to passenger accommodations, public rooms, and outdoor activities.

The contract was awarded to

Meyer Werft in 1984 against keen competition from other European shipyards. The order marked a new phase in passenger ship construc- tion at the Papenburg yard. Subse- quently, two additional cruise ves- sels were ordered for delivery in 1988.

Main propulsion is provided by twin MAN B&W 10L55GB diesel engines, each with an output of 16,200 hhp at 155 rpm, driving two

Lips controllable-pitch, highly skewed propellers. Service speed is 21 knots. The ship is equipped with

Sperry Gyrofin stabilizers for pas- senger comfort and safety, and with two bow thrusters for enhanced ma- neuverability during docking and undocking.

Electric power is supplied by four

MaK 8M453 medium-speed diesel engines, each driving a Brown Bo- veri generator. Navigation equip- ment includes two Krupp Atlas ra- dars (one with ARPA), Magnavox
