Ocean Carriers Seeks
MarAd Approval For T-5
Tankers Charter To MSC
The Maritime Administration has received a request from
Ocean Carriers, Inc., for section 805(a) permission for its affili- ates to be the bareboat charter- ers of up to five T-5 tankers to be time-chartered by the Military
Sealift Command (MSC). The
MSC charter agreement specifies that the tankers are to have worldwide trading privileges, which could include operations in the domestic coastal and inter- coastal trades.
Ocean Carriers was recently awarded a contract to construct and charter to the MSC two T-5 replacement tankers with op- tions for three more. They will be built by American Ship Build- ing Company for Ocean Product
Tankers, Inc., a subsidiary of
Ocean Carriers' parent company,
Ocean Shipholders, Inc. (see MR/
EN November 1982). The vessels, scheduled for delivery in 1984, will be bareboat chartered to other subsidiaries of Ocean Ship- holdings and time chartered to the MSC.
Section 805(a) of the Mer- chant Marine Act of 1936, as amended, prohibits subsidized op- erators and their affiliates from participating in domestic ship- ping activities without written permission from MarAd. Ocean
Carriers currently operates four subsidized vessels. The written permission from MarAd is re- quested only because of its affili- ation with the bareboat charters of the T-5 tankers. It does not propose to operate its chartered vessels in the domestic trades.
With Grove Of Canada
TeleSystems of Fairfax, Va., a Comsat Company, recently con- cluded an agreement with Grove
Telecommunications Ltd., where- by that Canadian company will become a major distributor for
TeleSystems, MCS-9000 maritime satellite communications termi- nal. Grove, located in St. Johns,
Newfoundland, will address the
Canadian offshore oil industry as its principal market.
A.W. Perigard, president of
TeleSystems, commenting on the agreement, said: "Grove is the only company operating in Can- ada dedicated exclusively to serv- icing the area of marine satellite communications, putting them in a prime position to successfully distribute the MCS-9000 in an active market. This agreement is a milestone of our long and mu- tually beneficial relationship."
The MCS-9000, designed and manufactured by TeleSystems, is a shipboard satellite terminal de- signed to provide the maritime community with a full range of communications capabilities. The
TeleSystems' terminal minimizes operator actions in call estab- lishment and maximizes system availability through reduced com- plexity. Featuring extremely com- pact below-decks equipment, ad- vanced terminal software, and a passively stabilized antenna sys- tem, the MCS-9000 meets or ex- ceeds all MARISAT and INMAR-
