WORCESTER DEMOCRAT AND THE LEDGER-ENTERPRISE
CARGO SHIP RUN
BY ELECTRICITY j
Eclipse, Soon to Go Into Service, l
First American Ship Driven £
by Such Power.
COST OF OPERATION IS CUT \
Reduced Consumption of Oil and J
Number of Crew Slashes Expense (;
In Half—Admiral Benson Strone £
for Electric Drive. £
Washington.—The first electrically
propelled cargo vessel to fly the t
American flag will be placed in serv- (j
ice at this port within the next few £
weeks hy the United States Shipping i ,
Hoard. The vessel will fly the house <
flag of the International Mercantile i £
Murine company and will be used by £
that concern in trans-Atlantic trade. • r
The Eclipse, as the ship has been J;
christened, will mark the introduction t
of electricity as a motive power for
merchant ships, the use of this power j r
in the past having been confined to : 5
naval vessels. | t
The shipping board is already so f .
confident of the success of the Eclipse t
that construction of several other (:
freighters similarly powered has been £
started. The Eclipse is of 12,000 t
dead-weight l , tons, 410 feet long and j
50 feet beam. Her electrical propul- <
j -sion machinery was built by the Gen- £
I eral Electric company at Schenectady, c
and installed by the Vulcan Iron
Works of Jersey City. v
Driving a ship by electricity means £
revolving the propeller shaft from a £
motor. To supply the power (o turn 5
this motor a generator must he opc-r- v
ated somewhere else in the vessel, Just V:
ns generators in power houses make £
current for street railways. On board e
ship these generators may be driven J
by an economical steam turbine or by t
q Diesel engine. £
Cost of Operation Cut in Half. c
The records of the electrically flrlv- J;
en New Mexico of the United States t
navy, show that oil consumption is (;
lowered about one-third by the use of £
electricity as motive power and the r
cost of operation is cut in half, prln- v
clpally as a result of the reduced num- k.
her of men necessary in engine room £
crews. c
It Is not only possible for an officer J
to operate an “electric ship” with
small levers from the bridge, but, if £
need he, virtually the entire engine
room mechanism can be handled by {
one man. Among the many advan
tages attached to electricity as sea* l ~
power are the added hull space foi |
cargo and the greatly reduced fuel |
consumption.
The first application of the electric
drive principle was made on a vessel
resembling closely the merchant ship,
although the first really successful
craft to use this power was the naval
collier Jupiter, launched in 1912. It
was this ship that proved conclusively
that electricity could be used success
fully in seagoing vessels.
When Admiral W. S. Benson was
chief of naval operations lie encour
aged the adoption of the electric drive
for naval vessels. After he had retired
from tiie navy and was appointed to
his present position ns chairman of
the shipping hoard his interest was
enlisted again in the electric drive a?
the most economical method of oper
ating merchant vessels.
Economical, Says Benson.
The admiral is the first chairman of
the shipping hoard to come out In
favor of an electrically operated
merchant fleet.
“I am convinced,” he said, “of the
possibilities of electricity in our mer
chant marine.
“We have demonstrated on our bat
tleship that the electric drive is more
economical than the ordinary drive.
We must save, every gallon of fuel
oil that we possibly can, and when I
say coal I say it with a good deal of
regret, because our competitors will
contend that we must go hack to coni
burning; that we cannot get oil In all
parts of the world, or that it doesn’t
pay, or something like that If we
ever give up fuel-oil, unless we can
get something better, we might as well
take to the woods, and cut timber
for our fuel. We can’t compete with
foreign competitors on any other
than an oil-fuel basis."

wasteful trade practices might be eliminated.
