MarineSafety Awarded Los Angeles Port Study

—Literature Available The City of Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners has awarded a Port Development Study to MarineSafety International, which is headquartered at the National Maritime Research Center, Kings Point, N.Y.

The study effort, to be conducted at MarineSafety's Computer-Aided Operations Research Facility, will use visual navigation simulation techniques to verify entrance channel depth requirements, inner channel entrance width for entry and exit of 300,000-dwt crude petroleum carriers and an inner harbor turning basin. In addition, fully loaded and in-ballast emergency underway strategies will be tested.

The area of the study is the soonto- be constructed PACTEX, artificial island, petroleum products terminal which is the first project of the World Port LA-2020 Program.

"Our professional staff and simulation facility is ideally suited to working with the Los Angeles Harbor Department in conducting the tests and anlyses required," Dr. Eugene Guest, MarineSafety director, said.

MarineSafety International, a wholly owned subsidiary of Flight- Safety International of New York, N.Y., operates ship simulation facilities at Kings Point, N.Y., and Newport, R.I., which are used for port and harbor design assistance, maritime research and training of ships' officers and harbor pilots.
