Service/Equipment Lines —Literature Available own right. The company has signed a contract worth approximately $20 million for the delivery of two 17,600-dwt multipurpose ships from a yard in East Germany.
The new vessels, to be named
Binta Yar'Adua and Atinuke Abio- la, each have a container capacity of 930 TEUs and are being built at the
East German yard of VEB Schiffs- werft Neptun Rostock. The first ship was launched at the end of
July, and is scheduled for delivery at the end of this month. The sec- ond was launched at the end of
October and will go into service at the end of March, 1986. When both ships are in operation, AOL will offer a regular full container service to shippers of one sailing North
Europe-West Africa every 21 days.
Both vessels will fly the Nigerian flag, following the Nigerian Govern- ment's recent announcement that it had made AOL a national-flag car- rier. The two ships are of a new design capable of loading and un- loading containers in ports that have no shoreside cranes or where cranage is inadequate. They will be equipped with three 40-ton cranes, which when combined will be able to lift up to 75 tons.

Liquid Level Switch
A new GEMS all-CPVC liquid level switch, LS-74780, is now avail- able from Transamerica Delaval.
The switch withstands tempera- tures up to 185°F for chemical pro- cessing or other applications using corrosive liquids, and operates high, low or intermediate alarms, as well as being suited for automatic safety interlocks, pump motor control etc.
When combined with GEMS re- lays, these switches can operate re- mote pumps or other equipment.
They feature simple operation—a magnet-equipped float, moving di- rectly with liquid level, actuates a hermetically sealed switch within the unit's stem.

Putting the "right" people on the job can simplify it and get it done for less! This has been proven time after time in the field of Marine Simulation by the dedicated staff at the

Recent projects that have been conducted for a fraction of the anticipated costs include: • Evaluating risks in a harbor design in Indonesia. • A close-in shiphandling course for two new masters of a large collier. • Evaluation of Pilot candidates for a new South American port. • Instructor training for a Canadian maritime school. • Determining the safety of using a larger vessel in an Arctic port. • Testing the handling of a new
Ferry in high winds.
