AMMCO Licensed To
Market O&K Dredging
Bucket And Cutting Wheels
American Marine and Machinery
Company, Inc. (AMMCO) of Nash- ville has announced the signing of an agreement with Orenstein &
Koppel of West Germany for the exclusive right to market O&K's complete line of underwater bucket wheels and cutting wheels in the
U.S., Canada, and Mexico. In mak- ing the announcement, AMMCO president Don King said: "This agreement brings together the world's foremost manufacturer of bucket wheel excavators and the pioneer builder of standard model portable cutter-suction dredges, with the objective of manufacturing and marketing a state-of-the-art line of bucket wheel dredges. "Until now, the extensive line of
O&K underwater bucket wheels has not been generally available in the
North American market. Hence- forth, these outstanding machines will be available as original equip- ment on all AMMCO dredges, or as conversions for existing dredges,"
Mr. King said.
The O&K series of underwater bucket wheels includes eight mod- els—four in the UBW series and four in the newly developed under- water cutting wheel (UCW) series.
The horsepower range is from 150 to 1,152 hp. They are designed for installation on cutter-suction dredges ranging from 12-inch through 44-inch suction diameter.

Johnson will be the NFR-90 pro- gram manager.
After competitive procurement,
Westinghouse won the $2-million 20-month contract to be the Navy's industrial representative to the pro- gram for the Ship Feasibility Study.
This important penetration into the ship systems business could result in considerable future potential for the Command and Control Divi- sions.
In the NFR-90 Program, the
NATO nations are working toward a jointly designed ship organization to collaborate and design one ship, as opposed to several ships. This is intended to bring about commonali- ty in operations, training and sup- port among the NATO countries.
Upon completion of the feasibility phase, each of the NATO nations will have the opportunity to contin- ue in the program.
