Bailey Controls Forms
Marine Market Group To
Handle Worldwide Sales
Bailey Controls has formed a Ma- rine Market Group that will concen- trate on worldwide sales of process control systems and related equip- ment for use on marine vessels and offshore drilling platforms. The new group, based at the Bailey corporate headquarters in the Cleveland sub- urb of Wickliffe, Ohio, serves the global market through a network of domestic and overseas sales offices.
The market for semisubmersible drilling rigs and construction vessels alone is estimated at nearly $300 million over the next five years, according to John Glowe, group manager. In addressing this market,
Bailey will feature its highly suc- cessful microprocessor-based Net- work 90® system. The system has proven itself in a broad range of applications including the operation of compressor, pump and other off- shore drilling rig equipment, and has been readily accepted by the marine industry to perform complex ballast control functions as well as provide propulsion control on ves- sels and platforms. Network 90 is the only integrated digital control system to be approved under the
American Bureau of Shipping Type
Equipment Approval Program.
Bailey Controls is a division of
Babcock & Wilcox, and a leading worldwide supplier of instrumenta- tion, controls, and computer sys- tems for power generation, process automation and energy manage- ment in the petrochemical, electric utility and process industries. Bab- cock & Wilcox is a major operating unit of McDermott Incorporated, a subsidiary of McDermott Interna- tional, Inc.

Designed originally to provide U.S. industry with intercoms which would deliver clear, dependable voice communication under the most severe operating conditions. ADCO units have earned wide acceptance in many segments of the marine industry.
Typical installations are aboard ship—bridge to deck or engine room, control center to diving bell—on offshore oil platforms—and throughout repair yards, dry docks, piers and storage areas.
What makes ADCO intercoms different is their ability to perform efficiently regardless of high ambient noise, weather or temperature extremes. Their heavy-duty cast aluminum cases are built to withstand rough usage—and are both weather and corrosion-proof.
Since each unit is a self-contained station which receives, amplifies and transmits the signal, intercom systems can include many stations over very long distances. Installation is simple and practical: each unit plugs into a nearby AC or DC power source, then is connected by ordinary low voltage 2-wire cable.
