Australian Admiral Test-Starts
New Sub Engine At Hedemora
Rear Adm. Oscar Hughes, project leader with overall responsibility for the Royal Austra- lian Navy's new submarine project, recently vis- ited Sweden's Hedemora Diesel AB to test-start a prototype engine that is one of a series of engines intended for six submarines.
The order, which includes a total of 19 engines, including logistics, is a significant breakthrough for Hedemora Diesel in the inter- national naval vessel market. It is also confirma- tion that the company is manufacturing engines that satisfy the technological requirements of the 1990s.
The test-start of the prototype engine is an important milestone in the total delivery pro- gram, ordered by Australian Submarine Corpo- ration, ASC, which will be completed in stages between 1990 and 1995.
Hedemora Diesel engines are currently in- stalled in a large number of industrial, marine, naval-defense and railway application areas, worldwide.
For the 1990s, Hedemora Diesel is focusing increasingly on the development of high-per- formance engines for naval-defense installa- tions.
