Evergreen To Move Base
From Seattle To Tacoma
One of the world's largest con- tainership lines, the Taiwanese shipping company Evergreen Ma- rine Corp., is shifting its U.S. Pacific
Northwest operations from Seattle to Tacoma, Wash., in June of this year.

Standard Condensers: they're just made to be better.
How did Standard get to be the first name in water cooled condens- ers? Quite simply, you have to look inside at how they're designed and built. High efficiency and reliability comes from these proven features: • All copper water channels, heavy duty shell and tube design- sized and rated for the most demanding applications. • Individually brazed tube ends for years of trouble-free service. • Epoxy coated, copper plated tube sheets prevent pitting from galvanic actions. • Removable, epoxy coated water plates make cleaning easy help maintain peak performance. • Wide range of fully tested standard models from 3/4 to 350 hp. plus special designs.
And that's just the beginning. To get the complete story on our con- densers and other fine heat exchange products, contact your Stan- dard wholesaler, or call us direct.

Trinity Marine Receives
Over $138 Million In Navy Contracts
Halter Marine, Inc., Moss Point,
Miss., a member of the Trinity Ma- rine Group, recently received two contracts worth more than $138 mil- lion from the U.S. Navy.
The first contract is for the detail design and construction of two T-
AGS-60 Class oceanographic survey ships with an option for a third ship.
Total value of the program , includ- ing the option, exceeds $100 mil- lion.
The second contract, an option exercised by the Navy, worth about $38 million, involves the construc- tion of seventeen 78-foot all-alumi- num fast patrol boats. All of the boats will be built at Equitable
Shipyards, Inc., New Orleans, La., a sister shipbuilding company of
Halter Marine in the Trinity Ma- rine Group.
The Navy and Halter had pre- viously signed contracts totaling $16.4 million in September 1989 and
April 1990 for the construction of eight 78-foot fast patrol boats (PFC) for use by the Philippine
Government. Two of the eight boats have been delivered.
The PFC is a new design by Halt- er Marine. Each boat is 78 feet long, with a 20-foot beam, full-load draft of 5 feet 7-1/2 inches. Each is pow- ered by two Detroit Diesel 16V92TAB, 1,400-bhp engines driv- ing submerged four-blade dynami- cally balanced propellers through
ZF BW255 reverse/reduction gears in inclined shafts.
Commenting on the T-AGS-60 contract, John Dane III, presi- dent of the Trinity Marine Group, said the program will span four years and will provide direct ship- yard employment for up to 400 people, including subcontractors and other indirect employment. He added that the economic and tech- nical support will be provided by the Trinity Marine Group corporate office in Gulfport, Miss. Equitable
Shipyards and another Trinity ship- yard will provide cut steel and some steel fabrication.
T-AGS-60, the first of the new multipurpose oceanographic ships will be the USNS Pathfinder, and
T-AGS-61 will be the USNS Sumn- er.
Mr. Dane said in recent years
Halter has won more contracts for this type of design procurement than any other shipbuilder in the
U.S. He cited the company's experi- ence in the design and construction of ships for similar naval missions such as T-AGOS-13 to 18, oceano- graphic surveillance ships, T-AGS- 51 and 52, hydrographic survey ships, and AG0R-23, an oceano- graphic survey ship.
Tne new class of ship will have a displacement of 4,700 tons, a diesel- electric propulsion system and a length of 328-1/2 feet and will be capable of performing oceanograp- hic survey operations in coastal and deep ocean areas.
Halter Marine will complete the detail design and construction of the first T-AGS-60 Class ship with- in 36 months, with the second and third ships delivered in subsequent six-month intervals.
