St. Philip Towing Adds
Two New Trac-Type Tugs
St. Philip Towing of Tampa, Fla., recently announced that the compa- ny has closed with the U.S. Mari- time Administration on the pur- chase of two "trac"-type tugs that had been under construction in
Bay Transportation, owned by
George M. Steinbrenner, pur- chased the assets of St. Philip Tow- ing at year-end 1986 and continues to operate the 23-tug fleet under the
St. Philip name.
The two 93-foot-long 4,200-hp vessels acquired by St. Philip fea- tures a unique propulsion system placement resulting in the trac-type designation.
Instead of conventional position- ing of the propulsion system at the stern of the vessel, the twin screws are mounted in an assembly sus- pended below the vessel's hull about 30 feet from the bow. The propul- sion assembly can rotate in a full circle, enabling the thrust supplied by the twin diesel engines to be applied in any direction.
The trac-type design, which has become common in European ports in the last decade, provides tugs with greater maneuverability in po- sitioning huge ocean vessels at har- borside berths and in narrow port channels.
The two 194-gross-ton tugs will be powered by twin B&W Holeby die- sels. Propulsion will be Niigata Z- peller 3-A units with 360-degree thrust; geared 1:2.792 Kaplan four- bladed fixed-pitch propellers mounted in 6-foot 10-inch Kort noz- zles. Generators will be Caterpillar 6-360, 135 kw.
Electronics include Harris SSB,
Sperry gyrocompass, Texas Instru- ments Loran C, Raytheon radar,
Decca gyroautopilot, Raytheon Fa- thometers and VHM-FM.
One vessel is 90 percent complete and can be fully operational within 120 days; the other is about 50 per- cent complete with much of the equipment and fittings remaining to be installed. The American Ship
Building Company's Tampa ship- yard is expected to complete both tugs.

River Services Adds
Ice Forecast Service
River Services, Inc. (RSI) of 01- ney, Md., recently announced an ice forecast service for many navigable rivers in the northern U.S. RSI plans to utilize an ice prediction model that couples the hydraulics and thermal aspects of rivers. The computerized forecast model will be run on the RSI computer daily and forecast ice formation, ice floes, and ice bridging at selected locations on the Mississippi River. The goal of this service will be to provide seven days of ice forecasting accuracy. In addition to ice predictions, current ice conditions will be available for most locations.
River Services is now providing river, stage, discharge, velocity and navigable depth forecasts on the
Mississippi River where problems to navigation may occur. Weather forecasts, hurricane and tropical weather bulletins as well as heavy rainfall forecasts are also provided.

Phoenix Products Acquires
Majority Of Russellstoll
Phoenix Products Company, Inc., a Milwaukee manufacturer of load- ing dock, mining and marine lights, has acquired most of the Midland
Ross Russellstoll Division lighting line from FL Industries, Livingston,
The purchase, for an undisclosed amount of cash, involves a variety of marine and industrial fixtures.
These include marine interior and exterior fluorescent with hazardous and explosion-proof ratings, naviga- tion and exterior quartz lights. The balance of the acquisition is high intensity discharge fixtures with various hazardous location listings for both marine and industrial ap- plications.
A privately held 95-year-old mul- ti-million dollar company, Phoenix has been making marine floodlights since 1974. It introduced a line of searchlights in 1982, interior shock resistant fluorescent fixtures for en- gine rooms in 1983 and smaller deck lights for commercial fishing vessels in 1984.
