 PACORD SEATTLE OPERATION AWARDED NOAA PRIME CONTRACT
 SEATTLE, April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of a continuing project


for the U.S. Department of Commerce's National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Seattle operation of PacOrd Inc. was recently awarded the prime contract to accomplish dockside repairs aboard the NOAA ship McArthur.
 The award marks the fourth such project for PacOrd's Seattle operation under a diversification of services program that has helped broaden the firm's service base to include both U.S. Navy and commercial maritime systems repair and overhaul. PacOrd is headquartered in San Diego and is a subsidiary of the Philadelphia-based .
 NOAA provides ships for scientific projects which require underway, at-sea platforms. The McArthur project includes a cross-section of typical shipboard repairs -- management of asbestos abatement, hull, mechanical and electrical repairs.
 PacOrd will also be preparing and modifying the McArthur's auxiliary engines, cleaning the ventilation ducts, replacing and rerouting the piping systems and overhauling the ship's cranes and winches.
 PacOrd has previously completed repair contracts for the McArthur in 1989, 1990 and 1991, in addition to a similar contract for the NOAA ship Discoverer in 1990.
 PacOrd also has additional West Coast facilities in Portland, Ore., and National City, Calif., as well as a Hawaiian operation in Pearl City, Hawaii. On the East Coast, PacOrd has operations in Norfolk, Va., Arlington, Va., and Jacksonville, Fla.
 SPD Technologies is the nation's largest designer and manufacturer of military circuit breakers and switchgear, and a leader in the development of advanced shipboard announcing systems.
