transport on deck jackup and semi- submersible oil drilling platforms weighing up to 20,000 tons. The ves- sel can also be used for docking ships.
The Transself can be submerged by means of water-filled ballast tanks to a depth of about 69 feet, after which the platform is towed above the submerged deck. The bal- last tanks are then emptied pneu- matically and the loaded vessel rises to transport level.
Onboard there is a flexible com- puterized interactive management assisting system developed in coop- eration with Wartsila and a Dutch company. This computer system can be used for designing and pre- paring future transports and by us- ing real-time measurements for monitoring and analyzing stability, stresses and movements of the ship during loading, transportation and unloading, also paying attention to the varying environmental condi- tions.

Circle 125 on Reader Service Card sault ship Wasp (LHD-1), the lead ship of her new class, was christened for the U.S. Navy at Litton's Ingalls
Shipbuilding Division in Pascagou- la, Miss., in mid-September of this year.
The Wasp will have the primary mission of embarkation, deploy- ment, landing and support of a Ma- rine landing force. The Wasp is 844 feet long, with a beam of 106 feet.
Two Westinghouse steam propul- sion plants, developing a combined 70,000 horsepower, will drive the ship at speeds of more than 20 knots.
In carrying out this mission, LHD 1 will mount an assault of helicop- ters, landing craft and other amphi- bious vehicles in various combina- tion. The Wasp Class is specifically designed to accommodate the air cushion landing craft (LCAC) and
Harrier II (AV-8B) STO/VL (Short
Take Off/Vertical Landing) jets, which will provide close-in air sup- port of the assault force. The ship will also accommodate the full range of Navy and Marine Corps helicop- ters, conventional landing craft and amphibious vehicles.
LHD 1 will have more than 22,000 feet of vehicle space, and 100,000 cubic feet of cargo space. Accommo- dations for nearly 3,000 troops and crew members (the crew numbers 98 officers and 983 enlisted personnel) are provided in the ship's living areas. For combat support, as well as humanitarian missions, LHD 1 will have six fully equipped operat- ing rooms and a 600-bed hospital.
The new ship will join the Navy fleet in early 1989.
