Mowachaht Brave, built by Alberni

Engineering & Shipyard Ltd. at

Port Alberni, B.C., is shown towing bundles of logs together containing nearly 400,000 cubic feet of tim- ber—no small task. But chores are made less challenging by the Cum- mins KT19-M turbocharged diesel engine that powers the tug at Gold

River, B.C., where the vessel is hard at work every day of the week for

Canadian Pacific Forest Products

Ltd. The company's project engi- neer estimates that the Cummins

KT19-M installation in the 14-foot- beam tug enables the Mowachaht

Brave to move its log tows about a third faster than its predecessor tugs.

Jacksonville Shipyards

Awarded $2.5 Million

To Repair Pemex Ship -Jacksonville Shipyards, Inc. (JSI), Jacksonville, Fla., has been awarded its largest contract since reopening, worth about $2.5 million, to repair the Petroleos Mexicanos

S.A. (Pemex) ship Cantarell, which was damaged by an explosion last year. The aft end of the 46,486-dwt

LPG carrier was affected, and sub- stantial rebuilding is required to restore the ship to full operating capability. The project, which is ex- pected to take up to two months to complete, will involve work in the engineering spaces and steel renew- al.

Pemex received bids from an in- ternational group of competing yards before selecting the recently reopened Jacksonville yard. The contract was signed in Mexico City in January, and work commenced last month.

According to a spokesman for the company, JSI is actively bidding on a number of projects, some in the cruise ship sector, from both domes- tic and foreign owners.

THE Model 12 (two compenents)

Designed for vessels with limited space


F-l 2 Filter: 12 l/2"lxl2 l/2"h

D-12 Digestor: 27"lxl5"wxl2"h

Weight: 401bs. dry. 1151bs. wet

Power: low draw 12 volt system drawing 6 amps or 110 volt drawing 10 amps

Unique Simple Process

Sewage flows from the head directly into the

Digestor(s) where it makes its way through a series of baffles. It is broken down and dissolved by natural bacterial action during this stage.

The resulting liquid (effluent) is then pumped through the Filter and passes through the chlorinator, where the final stage of purification and deodorization takes place.

Upkeep simply requires an addition of the Humphrey

Activator flushed through the head periodically, a spot check on the chlorine pellets and filter. Thats it,

No Muss, No Fuss!

Models available for any crew size

This compact Sewage

Treatment system emits clear and odorless dis- charge better than the

TYPE HI, no doscharge devices, which requires the use of pump out facilities that are inade- quate across the country.
