Rados International Designing

Cummins-Powered Fireboat

For City Of Los Angeles

Rados International Corporation, naval archi- tects and marine engineers of San Pedro, Calif., has been awarded a design contract by the City of Los Angeles for a new state-of-the-art fire- boat.

The new vessel, designated as boat #6, is being planned to prepare for the harbor's con- tinued growth and expansion, both in super- tanker and container operations as well as pier- side construction.

The new fireboat, of welded steel construc- tion, will be 100 feet in length, 23 feet in breadth, have a draft of 7 feet, and a speed of approximately 13 knots. The completed design will incorporate a total pumping capacity of 15,000 gpm through seven monitors, and contain a fully automated engine room with new sophis- ticated electronic and hydraulic system designs.

It will be equipped for patrol, search, and rescue missions and have a 7-10 minute response time to cover the vast area of the Los Angeles inner and outer harbors.

Designed to accommodate a maximum of five and a minimum of three firefighting personnel, the vessel will be propelled by twin Cummins

KT-38 diesel engines, each rated to deliver 800 bhp at 1,800 rpm, driving fixed-pitch propellers through reverse reduction gears with a ratio of 3 to 1. The exhaust system will have a dry stack configuration.

The firefighting system will be composed of three main pumps with dedicated Cummins

KT-38 engines producing 5,000 gpm each. Deck monitors provided by Stang Mfg Inc., one on the bow and four on the stern, with 3,000-gpm capacity, will be remotely controlled from the pilothouse, as will the pilothouse turret rated at ' ----- 7*T\

Tow thru- hull underwharf nozzles with 2,000 gpm each will all be operated from the pilothouse. Twin reduced capacity deck-mounted turrets, mounted in the bow port and starboard, for pilothouse protection, will contain 500-gpm spray capacities. An elevated tower monitor will also provide a 350-foot stream from 3,000 gpm.

A telescoping aerial platform will be incorpo- rated for water rescues.

Foam firefighting capabilities will comprise 2,000 gallons of ATC foam which may be distrib- uted proportionately from 3 percent to 6 per- cent.

Rados, in addition, will provide contract ad- ministration and construction inspection ser- vices for the port.

In addition to providing technical design and engineering services to the City of Los Angeles,

Rados has also been contracted to provide ser- vices to the Port of Long Beach incidental to the upgrading, system redesign and crew training for two new 88-foot fireboats constructed at

Moss Point in Mississippi.
