TANO Corporation, New Orleans, La., has been awarded a $2,852,000 contract by Avondale Shipyards, Inc. to provide centralized control and monitoring systems for the three containerships Avondale is currently building for American President Lines Ltd.

The ships, which will be powered by large, low-speed diesel engines, will utilize the TANO control and monitoring systems to allow operation of machinery in space unattended by engine room personnel. The systems, including engine control room and wheelhouse consoles, will provide control and monitoring of the vessels' powerplants, as well as fuel, oil and ballast tanks. Singlelever bridge propulsion control is also included.

The TANO systems will be built to American Bureau of Shipping ( + ACCU) and U.S.

Coast Guard requirements for vessels with periodically unattended machinery spaces.

TANO has designed, manufactured and installed more than 70 marine automation systems on major commercial and naval vessels since 1971, including two of the largest commercial vessels ever built in a U.S.
