To Boost Business
Sembawang Shipyard has signed a cooperation agreement with Nip- pon Kokan K.K. (NKK) of Japan to improve each other's ship repair and conversion business.
The scope of the agreement will allow NKK to share its long-term expertise and technical know-how in the field of shipbuilding, ship repair and conversion with Semba- wang Shipyard Limited.
Sembawang Shipyard Limited and NKK will also subcontract ship repair and conversion work received from a third party to each other.
Sembawang can now draw on the technical expertise of NKK in terms of technical consultancy, design, works supervision and the procure- ment of material and equipment.
This upstream service extension will further enhance Sembawang Ship- yard's capabilities.

Low Pressure SMI90
Designed for the rugged condi- tions of the mining, marine and oil field industries, StartMaster's
SM190 Series will crank diesel en- gines up to 1,800 cubic inches and gasoline engines up to 3,600 cubic inches. Air consumption is a low 5 cubic feet per second, and cranking torque is generated at pressures as low as 40 psi. The lightweight, 38 pound starter features an exclusive positive blade displacement which eliminates freeze ups by mechani- cally positioning rotor blades into the air stream.
Also available is "SuperStarters," a new, friction-resistant configura- tion that requires no lubrication to the air motor. It also stops vane sticking due to accumulated lubri- cants and resists corrosion of the cylinder.

Kim Hotstart Pre-Heating
Engine Idling Costs
Kim Hotstart Manufacturing Co. of Spokane, Wash., is offering free literature on pre-heating systems.
According to the manufacturer, when an engine is equipped with a
Kim Hotstart engine pre-heating system, its idling costs are nearly eliminated because electricity is used to keep the engine warm, not gallons of expensive diesel fuel that are required for hours of idling. And since the engine is warm enough to start at a moment's notice and reach full power quickly, getting to a job fast is assured.
Using a Kim Hotstart pre-heating system prevents two cold-starting problems: excessive wear on critical engine parts and emission of white smoke pollutants. Ships and work- boats can be kept in service longer as time between overhauls is ex- tended.
Kim Hotstart manufactures three types of heating systems for marine use: lube oil heating systems, cool- ant heating systems and a combina- tion of the two. Each system has the following approvals: U.S. Coast
Guard; CSA-approved for hazard- ous and wet locations; and approved by major engine manufacturers.
The systems can be operated manually or automatically, and are
