Cagliari Executive Director

The Society of Naval Architects and Marine

Engineers (SNAME) recently appointed Francis

M. (Frank) Cagliari its new executive director.

The appointment was made during a meeting of the Society's executive committee. Mr. Cagliari assumed his new position immediately, having been performing the duties of the office since his predecessor's planned retirement the first of this year. Mr. Cagliari joined the Society's head- quarters staff in April 1986, becoming its deputy executive director in July 1987. His previous position was manager of technical programs and publications.

The executive director is the chief administra- tive officer of the Society, functioning under the immediate direction of the president and execu- tive committee and is appointed for a term of office fixed by resolution of the executive commit- tee.

ABS Extends DLA Class

Notation To Bulk Carriers

In August of 1991 ABS was the first class society to offer the DLA class notation for tank- ers. This DLA notation (standing for Dynamic

Loading Approach) is optional for tanker owners wishing to apply a dynamic loading analysis technique to the design of a tanker which can result in some scantlings (i.e. structural member sizes) exceeding those directly obtained from the

ABS "Rules for Building and Classing Steel Ves- sels."

This approach has been very well received by the marine industry, and due to this and the concern of ABS for bulk carrier structures, as well as recently completed analytical studies of these type vessels, ABS is now offering the DLA notation for bulk carriers.

The use of this dynamic loading approach may result in more conservatively biased scantlings that is, scantlings which exceed the specified safety margins of the ABS steel vessel rules. In such cases ABS will recognize this added margin of safety through the optional class notation


In another pioneering effort in the marine industry ABS is developing a restatement of its "Hull Rules According to First Principles" which designers will be able to use readily. It is in- tended that the Dynamic Loading Approach will be incorporated into this rule restatement project. 450-TEU Container

Vessel Christened

Singapore Shipbuilding & Engineering Ltd. (SSE), a member of Singapore Technologies, is pleased to announce the christening of the third 450-TEU feeder container vessel for Neptune

Orient Lines Ltd.

This vessel has a service speed of 14 knots and a cargo capacity of 450-TEU or 201-FEU + 48-

TEU. Its 4,400kw engine is a Wartsila Vasa 12V 32D diesel engine, and along with a bow thruster and controllable pitch propeller provides excel- lent maneuverability for the vessel.

MARCO Delivers First

Of Two Filterbelt Systems


Seattle-based MARCO Pollution Control, a world leader in the development of marine oil spill clean-up systems, has delivered the first of two large Filterbelt modules to Batservice Yard in Mandel, Norway. These 27-foot long by 6-foot wide modules, amongst the largest ever pro- duced, will be installed aboard two 122-foot high- speed oil spill response catamarans for Saudi


The unique Filterbelt technology that has ef- fectively covered all types of oils in a variety of oil spill conditions is particularly suited to the harsh environment of the Arabian Gulf. This technol- ogy and its history of superior performance at many major oil spills, make the MARCO Filterbelt and the new state-of-the-art catamarans a highly efficient oil spill response and recovery team.

The Filterbelt, produced by MARCO since 1972, is a continuous mesh belt that allows water to pass through it, but retains oil. An induction pump mounted behind the Filterbelt creates a current through the belt that draws oil toward it.

The consistent efficiency of the Filterbelt tech- nology is proven to be 90 percent effective in the recovery of a full range of petroleum products.

Filterbelt systems have been installed aboard more than 100 vessels, ranging in size from the

MARCO-built 24-foot Class I harbor and bay skimmers to the 160-foot Clean Gulf Associates'

CGA 200 (HOSS) barge, the largest oil spill recovery vessel in the world.
