Hamworthy Engineering has been a leading worldwide marine equip- ment manfacturer for over 75 years.

With its own offices worldwide,

Hamworthy is able to provide ship- owners the assurance of the availa- bility of spare parts and service for their equipment. Besides compres- sors and pumps, Hamworthy offers an extensive line of pollution abate- ment equipment.

One such product is the Hamwor- thy Neptune Incinerator. With the ratification and implementation of

Annex V of MARPOL 73/78, a greater importance has been placed on the disposal of waste generated aboard ship.

Hamworthy recognized the waste problem and developed and de- signed the Neptune 20R and 40R incinerators to provide a solution.

Both sizes of incinerator are of the "cyclone" type, with high rates of combustion limiting the daily oper- ating time to a minimum. The mod- el 20R has been designed to con- sume solid waste only, while the 40R has the ability to burn liquid and solid wastes. Hamworthy reports that both models have fully auto- matic control systems and are con- structed to fulfill the safety require- ments of the classification societies.

Both Neptune models are especially designed for the retrofit market and can also be supplied as a "fiat-pack" for installation at a selected space on board ships.

Some of the features of the Nep- tune incinerators include: a conven- iently located control panel for easy operation; an auxiliary burner that has a capacity of 665 MJ/h when burning light oil with a high and low fire capability of 20.5 liters and 4.5 liters per hour, respectively; a hori- zontal flue that incorporates an air diluter; a garbage door that provides easy access to the combustion cham- ber; an ash removal door; combus- tion air inlets; and an induced draft fan supplied for customer installa- tion adjacent to the incinerator.

Fincantieri Delivers

Rail/Car/Passenger Ferry

To Italian State Railways

The Palermo shipyard of Fincan- tieri recently delivered the rail/car/ passenger ferry Logudoro to the

Italian State Railways. The ferry is now in service between Civitavec- chia, near Rome, to Golfo Aranci in

Sardinia, and between Messina, in

Sicily, and Reggio Calabria.

Built to the rules of Registro Ital- iano Navale, the 2,040-dwt Logu- doro, which has facilities for 1,000- 1,500 passengers and transport driv- ers, as well as the capability to han- dle rail coaches and wagons totaling a maximum of 1,350 tons and 100 private cars, is powered by two six- cylinder, four-stroke medium-speed diesel engines built by Fincantieri's

Grandi Motori Trieste (GMT) Divi- sion. The two GMT550.6 turbo- charged models, the largest in the

GMT medium-speed engine series, develop a total of 16,800 bhp at 450 rpms. Each engine is connected by an electro-magnetic coupling to a

Fincantieri reduction gear to give a constant propeller speed of 150 rpms. Ship speed and direction, ahead and astern, is regulated elec- tro-pneumatically from either the bridge or engine room by the two

Lips Italiana controllable-pitch pro- pellers.

Electric power for ship's services and lighting is supplied by four 1,300-kw Fincantieri GMT BL230 turbocharged, four-stroke, eight-cy- linder diesel engines coupled to a 450-volt, 60-Hz Ansaldo three- phase alternator. These engines are water-cooled but the 250-kw emer- gency generator is driven by an air- cooled, four-stroke Isotta Fraschini diesel engine. Esacontrol supplied machinery control and monitoring systems.
