Investment in Design incorporate common-rail fuel injection.

This system offers considerable flexibil- ity in matching fuel injection parameters to prevailing operating conditions and changing requirements. Compared with conventional arrangements, higher injection pressures are available, even at low engine speeds, enhancing overall fuel-burning efficiency and environmen- tal compatibility. Compact size in rela- tion to delivered power has also been a central tenet of the 20V8000 design pro- ject. mindful of the space constraints of the vessel types forming its target marine markets.

The debut order for the design announced at last year's SMM show entailed four units at the 9,000-kW rat- ing to provide an enormous propulsive power concentration of 36-MW in a mega-yacht of 453 ft. (138 m) contract-

Werft. Besides the new catamaran RoRo ferry application, subsequent business has included a commitment to the 20- cylinder engine of 9,000-kW output for a series of all-diesel corvettes ordered by a navy in the Far East. MTU is now pur- suing new opportunities for the 20V8000 in diesel-electric propulsion systems and as landside power genera- tion plant, and also plans to roll-out 12V and 16V versions in due course.

FGH Announces Two

New Contracts

Halter Marine, Inc. the vessel segment of Friede Goldman Halter, Inc. announced that it has signed a contract with an undisclosed customer to build a 332 x 74 x 25 ft. (101.1 x 22.5 x 7.6 m), double-skin, clean oil tank barge with an estimated 80,000 BBL capacity. This vessel meets the requirements of the

OPA 90. Double skin barges and tankers are gradually replacing the single skin fleet, and are more "environmentally friendly."

This barge is similar in design to one currently under construction at the Hal- ter Gulfport, Miss, facility.

Construction will begin at Halter's

Gulfport, Miss, facility and take approx- imately 12 months. Although no new jobs will be created, the project is expected to sustain the facility's current workforce.

Anil Raj, COO said, "With multiple shipyards, our Halter Marine Company has the nation's largest experienced workforce and capacity for building double-skin barges. We are able to offer deliveries to meet the deadline and con- straints of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990."

The Shipbuilders Council of America (SBC), in its October 3, 2001. state- ment, echoed earlier warnings from the

Maritime Cabotage Task Force and the

National Defense Transportation Asso- ciation's Sealift Committee that con- struction of double-hulled tankers must increase dramatically to avoid a short- age of US-flagged ships. It is anticipat- ed that demand could exceed supply by as much as 24 percent in the next three years.

Friede and Goldman. Ltd. the design engineering segment of Friede Goldman

Halter, has also been awarded a new contract with a major drilling contractor to perform the design engineering for the upgrade of a drilling unit. The upgrade includes a new cantilever beam design as well as reinforcement of the hull. The two new contracts will have a value of approximately $7.5 million.
