Newest Navy Crane Ship

Christened 'Diamond State'

At Tampa Shipyards

The U.S. Navy christened its newest crane ship, the SS Diamond

State (T-ACS-7) at ceremonies at

Tampa Shipyards, Tampa, Fla. The ship, named for the state of Dela- ware, will be operated by the Navy's

Military Sealift Command.

With a draft of 33 feet 3 inches and deadweight at her loadline of 15,138 long tons, the 668-foot-long by 76-foot-wide Diamond State will join six other crane ships providing improved crane capability for the

U.S. Navy. The vessels are designed to unload cargo from other ships at ports where shore facilities are un- available. The ships can also unload cargo from ships offshore onto barges, floating causeways, or small- er faster craft that can enter shal- low-water ports.

Tampa Shipyards converted the

Diamond State from a container- ship under a $43-million, two-ship conversion contract from the U.S.

Navy. Modifications to the vessel included the installation of three twin-boom cargo cranes with two 1,640-kw diesel generators to pro- vide electrical power to operate them, a cargo crane control room, changes to the cargo holds, installa- tion of ballast and 32 small craft mooring fittings on the ship's hull above the waterline. Tampa is also currently converting the USS

Equality State to a MSC crane ship.

Nothing Performs Better

To help ensure the survivability of your ship, you need high reliability cable made with Du Pont KAPTON* polyi- mide film and mica MIL-C-24640/19- 24. Cable with KAPTON and mica is lightweight compact tough and wa- tertight. It provides circuit integrity and is designed for low smoke generation.

MXCW - 30 - MIL - C - 24640/23

No other cable is as seaworthy, be- cause no other cable combines all these critical performance features.

This is the only lightweight compact construction that is waterblocked for use below the water line. Ifs half the weight and one-third the bulk of MIL-C- 24643, providing improved maneu- verability and ease of installation in tight quarters. And, cable with KAPTON and mica provides circuit integrity to ensure continuous communication and power transmission if the cable is engulfed by fire.

To find out how cable with KAPTON and mica, MIL-C-24640/19-24, can im- prove the critical performance of your ships, write to us for our free brochure:
