Scaffold Planks



Master Plank, an ^ engineered wood product, is a continuous laminated veneer panel that can be cut into any required size for use as scaffold planks, beams and headers, etc. Available in standard widths. Master Plank, a wood laminate, provides strength properties superior to solid sawn wood. Warping, knotting and twisting are reduced, making the panel more consistently uniform.

GE's LM2500 Engines To

Power Portuguese Frigates —Literature Available

The Portuguese Navy has select- ed the General Electric LM2500 marine gas turbine engine to power its three new MEKO 200 guided missle frigates.

Portugal is the 16th nation to order the LM2500 for its naval fleet.

The order calls for six engines to be delivered to both Blohm & Voss shipbuilders in Hamburg, West

Germany, and Howaldtswerke-

Deutsche Werft shipyard in Kiel,

West Germany, beginning in 1988.

Ship deliveries to Portugal will take place over the next two to three years.

These ships will be the first

MEKO-type frigates with an im- proved propulsion design using two 30,000-shaft-horsepower LM2500s each in a combined diesel and gas turbine (CODOG) configuration.

The LM2500 CODOG system will give the ships sprint speed capabili- ty in excess of 32 knots, compared with 27 knots for earlier all-diesel versions of the MEKO 200. Other significant operational advantages of the LM2500 CODOG propulsion plant include a lower minimum speed for antisubmarine operation and 90-second start-up from a cold- ship status.

The 3,000-ton-displacement fri- gates will be equipped for antisub- marine warfare and will play a cru- cial role in protecting NATO strate- gic sea lanes in the Azores and the


Approximately 800 LM2500 gas turbine engines have been ordered for marine and industrial applica- tions throughout the world. In more than 4 million hours of operation, the engine has established the in- dustry standard for reliability, the most important requirement of a naval propulsion engine.

The LM2500, a derivative of the

TF39/CF6 aircraft engine, is a prod- uct of the Marine & Industrial En- gines and Service Division of Gener- al Electric's Aircraft Engine Busi- ness Group. The group is headquar- tered in Evendale, Ohio, north of
